How Effective is Carpet Stain Protection?
This question has been debated for as long as I can remember. Yes, they work but only when applied correctly. If your floor is heavily stained and not well maintained then no, you are wasting your money. We recommend re-applying stain carpet protection each time you have your home professionally cleaned here in Raleigh and Durham. When your rug is steam cleaned some of the protector is removed during the process. Without protectors you run a better chance of stains becoming permanent. Yes, some stains are permanent and no one can remove them. Yes, we said no one. These products are an effective way to prolong soil and stain resistance and enhance your homes overall appearance. Unfortunately, some unsavory sales people exaggerate the effectiveness of stain protection and suggest to the prospective buyer that stain protection means the carpet will never get dirty – which of course is not true. What is true however is that protectors reduce the impact of spills on the floor. Protectors create an invisible barrier that minimizes the impact of spills and soiling. This allows you extra time to remove the offending substance before permanent damage or staining occurs.
