Anti-staining treatments shield the carpet fibres and help to protect against spillages and stains. If you were to look at a carpet under a microscope, you would observe that it consists of very rough fibres; general dirt and grime cling to these fibres and become entrenched within them. However, the application of stain protection treatments provides a protective barrier that works to prevent the adhesion of soiling, thus reducing the infiltration of dirt into carpets and resulting in a cleaner carpet for a much longer length of time.
Protective treatments have a similar effect on carpets and upholstery as a protective wax coating does on a car, or a non-stick layer on a frying pan. However, they will not make a carpet ‘bullet-proof’ in the same way that a wax layer on a car will not protect the paintwork if it gets scratched! Nevertheless, they are an excellent way in which to preserve your carpet and maintain its quality over time.
