Here is a simple tip to help extend the life of your carpet.
We always recommend after getting your carpet stretched you should get it cleaned. If this is the first steam clean it will usually come out amazing!
Well why is this?
Have you ever noticed how easy it is to clean a new carpet? That’s likely because your carpet has a stain guard of some type on it. Most people don’t realize that the first steam cleaning is basically removing the stains and the stain guard. The stain guard is doing exactly what it is designed to do. It’s preventing stains from entering the fabric and sacrificing itself in order to save your carpet.
Most people are unaware that you can reapply this stain guard. Most carpet cleaning companies supply this service and we highly recommend it. Doing your high traffic areas is a great idea.
Not surprisingly to DIY’ers you can do it yourself. Admittedly you may not be as good as the factory or a trained cleaner who’s done it a thousand times but you can get a good result for very little money and a little bit of effort.
We recommend Scotchgard Protector in a can. It’s available at many retailers like Home Depot.
Remember to always stretch your carpets first and then get them steam cleaned… and for all the overachievers who believe a pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure…. break out the Scotchgard and overachieve like crazy!
