We all know the importance of slathering on that summer sun protection don’t we? But just as you protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, you need to protect one of your home’s most expensive investments from the harmful effects of daily wear and tear!
After all, the delicate fibers of your carpet become very vulnerable to stains, break down from soils and permanent traffic lanes with the passing of time and regular cleanings. The “factory applied” protection gets reduced and your fibers become as vulnerable as a baby at the beach.
“What is ‘carpet protection’ anyway?”
When your carpet was new from the factory, each fiber was protected with a product that created a resistance to stains, soil and oil. Just as your sunscreen extends the life and beauty of your skin, this resistance helps extend the life and beauty of your carpet.
Now you can’t find this “protection” at the corner drugstore, but you can get it from your favorite professional carpet cleaner. After your cleaning, Victoria Carpet Care can re-apply a factory approved product that will keep your carpet looking and performing as good as new.
Of course this “protection” requires a little more investment, but it’s a step that should not be skipped. If you don’t want to end up with tired looking carpets that look old before it’s time, it is necessary to reapply it. But don’t worry. Victoria Carpet Care can work with you and tailor a program that keeps your carpet fully protected without breaking the budget. For example, after assessing your family’s needs you may find that only certain areas of the home need the protection re-applied or that you only need to reapply protection after every few cleanings. When I come out to clean we can talk about it and I’ll write you the “prescription” that’s perfect for your needs and wants.
“How do I know if the ‘carpet protection’ is working?”
You want your carpet to perform as it did when it was new from the factory. But remember nothing makes your carpet “bullet proof.” Just like your sunscreen has limitations, so do the protective products for your carpet. But, if a good quality product is applied properly you will have carpet that resists stains (that are promptly attended to) and carpet that resists wear and tear (as long as it’s properly maintained.)
So don’t go out into the summer heat without your protection and don’t let your carpets “age” prematurely without their protection!
