Protects against Wear & Tear With Carpet Protector
You may ask yourself why you should apply protector on my carpet when its already there. With most new carpets, the manufacturer puts carpet protector on during the manufacturing process. However, over time the protector eventually wears off, this is true for all carpets no matter what the manufacturers literature says.
Believe it or not, this is actually a good thing. You want the carpet protector to take a beating and not the carpet under it. Carpet protector is especially important here in East Texas where we have a high sand content in our soil. The dirt here acts like sand paper against carpet and protector helps minimize this damage
Protect against Spots & Spills
Carpet protector forms a shield around your carpet repelling liquids that may be spilled onto it. What the protector does is basically buy you time. Instead of the spill soaking into the carpet, it sits on top of the protector allowing you time to blot the spill out.
How often should you add carpet protecter?
Dupont recommends reapplication every 2 years, or more often for highly trafficked areas. Think of carpet protector as an insurance policy for your carpet! Over time you will end up saving money since applying protector to your carpet every coupleof years will extend the life of your carpet greatly.
Carpet protector is typically applied after a professional carpet cleaning.
