WHY YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE CARPET PROTECTOR APPLIED TO YOUR CARPET
Unfortunately, there is probably as much confusion in the carpet cleaning industry about carpet protectors as there is about cleaning. Uneducated, uninformed, and sometimes downright dishonest carpet cleaners cause a great deal of confusion by giving out false information or intentionally misrepresenting the product.
A nylon stain-resist carpet is made with two protective properties: The first is an acid dye blocker that is essentially a clear dye that fills the extra dye sites in a fiber. This helps to keep "foreign" dyes (such as red dye in a beverage) from penetrating the carpet fiber.
The second property is called a "fluorochemical". Commonly known as 3M Scotchgard® or DuPont Teflon®. This treatment helps keep spillage from getting to the acid dye blocker, but its biggest job is to resist dry soil. By resisting dry soil, less soil bonds to the carpet, which allows it to be picked up by your vacuum or during a professional cleaning.
Making sure that you have a sufficient amount of protector on your carpet will help keep the dirt from bonding to the carpet. As soon as it bonds to the carpet, it acts like sandpaper on your traffic area. Once the traffic area yarns are broken down, there is no way to bring them back to their original state.
THE TWO PRIMARY WAYS THAT FACTORY PROTECTOR IS REMOVED FROM A CARPET.
Regular foot traffic.
Over a period of 6 months to 2 years depending on the traffic, a significant amount of protector can be removed from your traffic areas and needs to be reapplied.
High alkaline cleaner.
Uneducated, uninformed, and on occasion dishonest carpet cleaners use harsh chemicals on the carpet that will strip its protection. If this sounds like a situation that has happened in your house, you may want to have the carpet re-protected.
