Why Didn’t Carpet Protector Work?
If you had carpet protector applied in the past, and it didn’t work, here is why.
Four Mistakes other Cleaners Make in Applying Carpet Protector:
1. Not using high-quality protector.
Discount protectors are not as effective and sometimes void the warranty of the carpet. Use only the highest quality recommended protectors.
2. Not using a dedicated container.
Using the same container for carpet protector and for cleaners can contaminate the carpet protector, making it gummy and ineffective. Our vans have a dedicated container reserved only for carpet protector.
3. Not applying the product properly.
Some cleaners either under-apply or over-apply the protector.
4. Not grooming the carpet.
For the best performance, the product should be groomed into the carpet for maximum penetration. This ensures contact with all surfaces of the carpet yarn and proper distribution and drying. Our company thoroughly grooms the protector into the carpet pile.
What happens if I don’t apply carpet protector?
Five Things for You to Avoid:
1. More permanent stains.
A great-looking carpet can be ruined by an ugly spot. Unprotected carpet doesn’t repel spillage as well as protected carpet. Being able to remove spots and spills more effectively avoid permanent staining.
2. “Uglied-out” traffic lanes.
Traffic area soil is very abrasive and cuts carpet yarns like a knife. This damaging soil can easily bond to an unprotected carpet. By applying protector, you will increase the life of your carpet dramatically. When you vacuum your protected carpet, the soils will release from the carpet pile much more effectively.
3. Difficult spot removal.
The easier a spot is to remove, the less cleaner you will have to use, the less agitation you will have to use, and the less time it will take. With protected carpet, many spots can be removed easily with just water or the free spot remover we provide you with.
4. Next professional cleaning not effective.
Because of the first three items in the list, not having protector can reduce the effectiveness of your next cleaning. Having protector applied to your carpet will enhance your next cleaning. More soil will be removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned.
5. Costly service calls.
Although you want to call us out to handle any spot you cannot remove immediately, carpet protector helps you remove more spots than you could without protector. You may be able to save a minimum charge by remove the spot yourself.
Here’s the answer to the question of whether to have carpet protector applied: You should always get carpet protector on nylon or wool carpet. Olefin carpet can even benefit the abraded areas. So, make it your goal to always get carpet protector applied when having professional cleaning done.
