What does a rug protectant do?

First and foremost it prolongs the life of the rug. It helps keep spills from quickly penetrating into the fibers of the rug, essentially  giving you more time to clean the spill. The stain protector will help you keep your area rug cleaner much longer and being that it helps repel unwanted sand and soils, it also helps indoor air environment. A good example of what fiber protectant can do is to compare it to RainX. If you are familiar with this product, most commonly used on the windshield of your vehicle, you know how it repels water like magic. Our fiber protectant acts in a similar way, repelling unwanted sand and spills from penetrating your rug.

Area rug fiber protector will also help prevent “traffic areas” to form on your oriental rug. Traffic lanes are caused by  the soils on the feet and shoes destroying the fibers. If you were able to look through a magnifying glass, you will see that the soil literally acts like a  knife cutting at each fiber, combined with the soil, it will make those unsightly traffic lanes on your beautiful rug very visible. Using fiber protection can help with this and Rug Cleaning Tampa is the place to call. Don’t forget to call us today to have the protector applied during each of your area rug cleaning. Our protectant is highly effective and can really help to extend the look and feel of your rug, not to mention being able to pass down the rug for generations to come. Over time the protector will eventually wear down, so having the protector reapplied to your area rug after a professional rug cleaning service gives it maximum protection!

Does rug protector work?” The answer is yes, they do and no you are not being scammed when you’re being sold protectant. However, these answers come with one big warning: Do you trust who is selling it to you?

Do you trust the the company who is selling it?

How do rug protecting products work?

The way this special protectant works is that it coats the fibers on the surface pile and helps to keep any contaminants from setting deep into those fibers. While it sounds simple enough, it is actually a very effective treatment that you wouldn’t even know was applied until the time came for it to do its job. This substance is odorless, non-toxic and has no noticeable texture that you would be able to feel. It is the best way to protect your rug’s delicate fibers in-between services.

This protectant that would be applied to the surface fibers of the rug, not only helps to protect the rug’s fibers from permanent damage due to liquid accidents, it also helps to protect the fibers from any other contaminants, including dirt, dust, hair and anything else that could cause a negative abrasive reaction against the fibers. Once there is a liquid spill on the protected fibers, it will be kept on the surface for an extended period of time, making it easier to clean the mess before it sets deeper into the fibers, making it more difficult to remove. With dirt, dust and hair that works its way into the rug, the protectant will keep this debris from attaching to the fibers, making it easier to remove.

Are there benefits from re-applying the oriental rug protector?

So you purchased your rug about two years ago and you’ve had your fair number of accidents. You were successful in getting them cleaned-up, however your area rug is showing some signs of traffic and some of your DIY spot cleanings have re-soiled. It’s time to call a professional rug cleaner to get them thoroughly cleaned, thats where we come in. The protector acts like a shield between the spills and soil and the actual rug fiber. Once all the grime has been extracted and the rug has been washed, the fiber is returned to virtually a like new condition.

Similar to waxing your vehicle, re-application of Rug Fiber Protector after a cleaning is a must.

The combination of the soil and constant DIY cleanings combined with heavy foot traffic and soil that your rug has been subjected too over those years will weaken the protective properties of your area rug. Think about your personal vehicle for a moment. Wax is the protective coating that separates the environment and your vehicles paint. Waxing your truck or car will keeps its paint in pristine condition and will help prevent everyday grime from damaging it.  Same is true for your valuable rugs.

Our area rug fiber protector can add an extra layer of protection to your rug. Using the wrong cleaning products or methods can significantly compromise indoor air quality, making it even worse than the pollutants outside.
