The Carpet & Upholstery Protector works by soaking into each individual fibre, creating an invisible, hydrophobic coating. This repels all oil and water-based stains from carpets, upholstery and clothing without changing the look or feel of the material.
It also makes fabric easier to clean and maintain, as it holds dirt on the surface, preventing it from soaking into the fabric. Once applied, benefit from two years of stain protection.
The Carpet & Upholstery Protector can be safely used on a wide variety of fabric types including;
Olefin or Polypropylene
Its also great on Canvas, Microfibre, Velvet and other materials.
Coverage & Shelf Life
When protecting fabric you will need the following amounts of Carpet & Upholstery Protector:
Upholstery: 500ml is enough to fully protect anything up to a 3 seater sofa
Carpets: 500ml will cover roughly 20m²
Store in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight.
Store between 8°C and 30°C.
Once opened, use within 3 years.
Vacuum the fabric thoroughly to remove all dirt and dust.
If stained or dirty, use the Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner first. After cleaning, allow to dry.
Shake the Carpet & Upholstery Protector well. Spray onto the fabric and allow to dry. It is advised to spray high use areas first and more generously.
You only need to spray enough protector onto the fabric so that it dampens the surface.
Carpet & Upholstery Protector causes all of the above stains and more to be held on the surface, preventing them from drying in and staining the fabric.
Q. How often should I protect my Carpets and Upholstery?
A. We recommend re-applying the solution once every two years. Or, re-apply it whenever the items are thoroughly cleaned.
Q. How do I protect my cream coloured fabric sofa?
A. Firstly, the Protector works on all colours of fabric. From new you should use our Carpet and Upholstery protector as soon as your sofa arrives. This will help against everyday staining. As it is a light colour we would recommend wiping it down once a week with a damp cloth to remove surface dirt and dust.
For an old, or used sofa; you should first give the sofa a deep clean with our Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner to remove any dirt. If your fabric is stained, use one of our fabric stain removers. Once clean, apply our Carpet and Upholstery Protector. We recommend using our Carpet & Upholstery Care Kit.
Q. I have new fabric shoes – will this work on them too?
A. Yes. Our Carpet and Upholstery Protector will work on any fabric item. It will also protect canvas, textiles and all upholstery.
Q. Will the Carpet and Upholstery Protector alter the look or feel of my material?
A. No, not at all. Your item will slightly darken when it is applied as it dampens the material, however once dried it will not look any different. It will also not change the feel of any material.
Q. I have pets in my house, is it still safe to use?
A. Yes, it is completely safe to use around children and pets. Our Carpet and Upholstery Protector is water based.
Q. What should I do if I spill coffee on my new protected item?
A. As the material has been protected, the coffee will not be able to penetrate the fabric. Using a clean, dry cloth, blot the coffee from the surface of the fabric to remove excess liquid.
You should then use our Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner to clean the area, removing any residue left – always blot the area, do not rub. Once dried from cleaning, re-apply our Carpet and Upholstery Protector to this area.
Q. Will cleaning my sofa remove the Protector?
A. Cleaning your item with our Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner will not remove the protection completely, however it may reduce its performance. This is why we recommend to re-apply the Protector to any area that you clean. For regular maintenance (wiping it down with a damp cloth weekly) you do not need to re-protect.
Q. Will it help stop staining from dark clothes and cushions onto a light coloured fabric?
A. It will stop the dye from soaking into the fabric and staining, however you will still need to clean it off using our Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner.
