Having a bright and clean carpet is one thing. Maintaining the carpet for longer in a pristine condition is a different thing altogether. This is where a carpet protector comes in. Most quality El Paso carpet cleaning companies will offer protector for you freshly cleaned carpets.
A carpet protector repels most liquids and allows spills to be removed before wicking and staining can occur. Carpet protectors make it easier to care for carpets by keeping dirt, dust and grime from sticking to the fibers. This makes vacuuming not only easier but also more efficient.
Various carpet protectors exist. For instance, there are plastic cover adhesive carpet protectors which are specifically designed to protect all types of carpets during constructions, moving days, remodeling, office parties or even paint days. They are just rolled out on the carpet and are highly recommended for synthetic carpeting only. Some are flame retardant, polyethylene texture films with a water-based adhesive feature.
There are carpet protectors which protect carpets by forming molecular shields around each carpet fiber. These shields usually lower the surface energy of carpet fibers making them repellant to liquid spills, dirt and dust.
Some carpet protectors are technology-based. The protector products are usually applied professionally by carpet cleaners through spray application. Ensuring that there is sufficient amount of protector on the carpet helps keep dirt and soil from bonding to the carpet. While applying such carpet protectors, it is important to use high quality protectors and apply the products appropriately. Over applying the product makes the carpet overly crusty and stiff whereas under applying it disallows complete penetration in the carpet yarns.
The cat-proof carpet protector for doorways keeps cats from scratching at the carpet under and around the door. It is cut to fit under a door and extends on both sides. It can be fabricated for a variety of door widths.
Carpet protectors reduce permanent stains, increase the carpet’s life, make it easier to remove spots and enhance the next professional cleaning.
But although using a carpet protector is essential, vacuuming the carpet regularly and professionally cleaning should not be abandoned altogether.
