What is Carpet Protectant?

Carpet protectant is basically magic. Really, it’s a special product that you apply to your carpet fibers. It creates a barrier between your carpet fibers, which are quick to absorb moisture, and anything you spill on it. You can think about it like an umbrella over each and every fiber of your carpets, protecting it from the stains that rain down on your carpet.

Does My Carpet Come with Protectant?

Yes, most carpets come with factory-applied protectant. Each carpet is different, so be sure to check out your specific carpet’s information.

However, carpet protectant wears down over time and loses effectiveness. This is why it’s so important to get carpet protectant applied regularly.

Why Use Carpet Protectant?

Carpets fibers are absorbent. Carpets that are left unprotected absorb spills so quickly that don’t have a chance to clean your carpets before the stains become permanent. While carpet protectant isn’t bulletproof, Chem-Dry’s unique protectant provides a “window of opportunity” for you to remove common household stains before they become permanent. If you clean stains immediately when they happen, with carpet protectant you should be easily able to remove stains.

Are Some Carpet Protectants Better than Others?

Not all carpet protectants are created equal. Conclusive testing shows that Chem-Dry Protectant provides better soil protection than competing protectors. That’s because only Chem-Dry uses an innovative co-application process; our competitors post-apply their protectors after cleaning.

When you choose to add protectant to your Chem-Dry carpet cleaning, the protectant is added directly to our cleaning solutions and applied as your carpet is being cleaned. This co-application process is advantageous because it coats the entire carpet fiber, from the tip to the base, as your carpet is being cleaned. Our competitors’ post-application only gets the tips of the carpets.

Another advantage of our co-application process is that because the Protectant is added at the same time as cleaning, no additional moisture is required, so there is no additional dry time. All of our competitors post-apply their protectors, adding even more moisture to an already wet carpet, extending the dry time.

At Chem-Dry Windy City, we want you to have a cleaner, happier home. That’s why we recommend carpet protectant because it makes it so much easier to clean your carpets.
