It is an important part of any carpet cleaning business that one can offer protection to a client’s carpet an upholstery. However, you should know that not all carpet and upholstery protectors and protectants are made equally. Protectors differ largely based on the fluoro-chemical technology that they use; this causes them to behave differently.
Having your delicate upholstery and carpets protected will ensure that your carpet is kept in the best condition possible. Upholstery and fabric protection are largely approved by the public and applying protectors ensures that all carpets and upholstery will be cleaner for longer. Many carpets that are sold now, especially carpets that are made from nylon, come with a variety of carpet protector in their fibres.
If carpet mills, fibre producers, and BridgePoint all know it can work, AllAces know it works for sure.
If your previously protected carpet is beginning to show wear and tear, you may be able to top up the protector that is on it. Generally, your carpet originally comes with protection applied to it. However, over the years, it may begin to wear off because of foot traffic ad general wear. A top up protector can be applied to maintain and extend the lifetime of your carpet.
To understand the benefits of protectors; you first need to understand how they work.
When protectors like BridgePoint Maxim and Guardsman are applied to fibres, they create an increased surface tension. This means that any liquid spilt on it will find fewer spaces to enter the fibre’s surface. If they cannot penetrate the fibres and merely bead or pill up on carpet and fabric, they are much simpler to clean up. This way, they are unable to stain.
BridgePoint Maxim and Guardsman penetrate and surrounds the fibre fully. If a spill is dropped from higher above the carpeting, it will still move toward the case of the carpet and base of the fibres. However, with protector, the entire fibre is fully protected, and the spill is contained making cleanup easier.
It is important that you blot off all liquids or scrape off any solids remaining that are possible to remove without damaging your carpet. Apply BridgePoint Avenue directly to the affected pot and blot with paper towel of a napkin, repeat if needed. For upholstery, it is important that you apply BridgePoint Avenue directly to a napkin or paper towel and blot.
If the stain cannot be removed, you should call a professional stain removal company and seek advice.
Note: You should keep all proof of warranty as well as the receipt for the warranty to be honoured. Contact us withing four days of the spill or stain if you need assistance.
It is important to identify different fibres to figure out the best way to clean that fibre type. Based on the fibre type, the best cleaning method and product that will produce the best results can be identified. It is important to understand the characteristics of the fibre to figure out whether applying protector is worthwhile for your customers.
For example, it is not advised to apply protector to polypropylene fibre, as it is not absorptive and floats in water. For the protector to be beneficial, the fibre needs to be absorptive.
Nylon fibres are often described based on their development generation, this is to best identify the changes and improvements that have occurred to nylon used in carpet manufacturing over time.
