Q. WHY SHOULD I HAVE MY CARPETS PROTECTED?
A. carpet protection helps you in three very important ways. When this protective coating is applied to the carpet fibres, it puts a protective barrier around each fibre. This protective barrier resists moisture. When you do have a spill, it gives you a window of time to get it cleaned up. The next important way this product helps you is in the area of wear, having this protective coating on your carpet helps reduce the wear and abrasion by sand in the carpet. This protects the carpet from excessive matting, and in turn will cause your carpet to perform better. Finally it is much easier to vacuum all the particles and bacteria components, because the soiling cannot penetrate through the carpet fibres.

A. YES! They do for a period up to 7 days after cleaning, but be rest assured your carpets will be cleaned by qualified technicians using the latest truck mounted and portable machinery to assure you the best job will be done the first time always.
