6 Reasons You Should Always Get Carpet Protector 1. Minimizes permanent stains. A nice looking carpet can be ruined by an ugly spot. A carpet that isn't protected wont repel spillage as well as protected carpet. Being able to remove spots and spills more effectively, you can avoid permanent staining. 2.

By applying carpet protector, you will increase the life of your carpet dramatically. When you vacuum your protected carpet the soils will release from the carpet pile much more effectively. 3. Make spots easier to remove.The easier a spot is to remove, the less cleaner you will have to use. The less agitation you will have to use, and the less time it will take. Many spots can be removed easily with just water. 4. Makes your next professional cleaning more effective. Having protector applied to your carpet will enhance your next cleaning. More soil will be removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned. 5. Helps avoid costly service calls. Although you want to call us out to handle any spot you cannot remove immediately, carpet protector helps you remove more spots than you could without protector. With the protector you can remove the spot stain by your self saving you money having a professional company come out every time you get a new stain. 6. 3M recommends the application of Scotchgard after each cleaning on all carpet fiber types.
