You have probably heard the terms Scotch Guard, Stain Guard, Protector, or MicroSeal before… but what exactly do these products do?

First of all; not all carpets and rugs are created equal! There are several different fiber types that rugs and carpets are constructed with, and they all behave differently when it comes to stain resistance and cleaning. To put it simply, most synthetic carpet (especially nylon) comes with a form of stain guard from the mill it is produced in. That protector is applied to the fibers and baked on. However, after 2-4 years of traffic wear and cleaning, etc, the stain guard coating wears off and does not offer the same protection as when it was new.

Wool and other natural fibers, on the other hand, generally do not come with any sort of added protection! That means you have a textile, whether it is carpet, upholstery, or a rug that has no protection against spills, spots, food, or pets!

This is where Cleanville comes in to protect your investments! We offer fiber stain guard application on just about any type of textile you have – wall to wall carpet, oriental & area rugs, upholstery, and more. We have several different stain guard products available to use, depending on the fiber it is going on. One MAJOR benefit of the product we use is that it contains what is called acid-dye blockers. Why do you need acid-dye blockers? Well, almost every substance that is going to permanently stain your textiles is acidic! Drinks, pet urine, vomit, and many other harmful substances are acids that easily and permanently dye your vulnerable fibers. The acid-dye blockers in the protector we use fill empty dye sites in the fibers and make it so foreign molecules cannot attach to the fibers and create a permanent stain.

Another benefit of the protector we can apply to your textiles is the added dry soil and oil resistance factor, which is achieved through the latest technology in soil-resistance chemistry. That means your carpet, upholstery, and rugs will stay cleaner longer due to more soil being removed when you vacuum your textiles regularly. PLUS, the protector does not change the look or feel of your textiles!

If you have new or older items in your home that could be in need of having Cleanville’s professionals apply our high-quality stain guard protector to, please call us today to get more info and pricing!
