Should You Invest in Carpet Stain Protection?
From Enlighten me .com
Carpet stain protection is an invisible shield against stains and can either be applied to an existing carpet by yourself or a pro, or a carpet can be sold with the protection already included. The active ingredient of the product is a polymer (such as Teflon) that serves as an invisible coating that pushes away the substance from the carpet, preventing penetration.
If you are prone to stains in your home or have light colored carpeting, there are benefits to carpet stain protection. If you find one that’s effective and long lasting, when your child spills grape juice on your beige carpet, you’re covered. This is because these protectors are resistant to dyes. Many of these products come with a warranty, giving you insurance in case the product doesn’t work. These products can be used on rugs, carpets or auto upholstery, making it a versatile product that can really come in handy if you have pets or children. Another benefit of these protectors is that you have more time to clean a spill when it occurs because it won’t immediately bleed into the carpet.
Having carpet stain protection means that you can only use certain cleaning products on your product. Over time, some of these protectors can lose their effectiveness. When flexed too much, protectors can flake off over time and you will have to replace them. However, this may be a worthwhile investment if your carpet is prone to stains. Using a lesser product or applying too much of the product can lead to stiffening of the treated area. If too much product leads to a stiff carpet, you can vacuum the excess once it dries. Treating stains, especially with cleaning solutions, can remove the protector, which means you will have to apply touch-ups as needed.
Having carpet stain protection doesn’t mean that you can ignore spills and stains. You still have to remove the product just as you would on an untreated carpet. This includes blotting the stain to remove excess spillage and not rubbing the spill into the carpet. Wool carpets will require a special carpet stain protector. Protectors should be reapplied after each carpet cleaning, which is recommended to occur annually.
