Your carpets are supposed to last at least 10 years, but that won’t happen without proper care and maintenance. Even if you vacuum often there’s probably more you can do to make sure you get the most out of your carpeting. That’s where carpet cleaning and protection comes in.

Ideally, we recommend getting a clean every 6 months, and to not wait longer than 1 year between cleanings. You can also repair and re-stretch your carpet over time, and as needs arise. While these are fundamental to carpet longevity, carpet protection is another easy way to extend the life of your carpet. 

Protecting your carpets is important for a few reasons but a good carpet protectant can add years to the life of your flooring investment. Read on to learn more about the different types of protection available and how to choose the right one for your home.

Carpet Protection Add-Ons

Carpet protection add-ons are special treatments that can be applied to your carpets to help repel dirt, stains, and other messes. Most carpet protectors are invisible to the naked eye and provide a powerful barrier between your carpets and the outside world.

How Do They Work?

Carpet protectors work by creating an invisible barrier on the surface of your carpets. This barrier repels water, oil, grime, and dirt and other liquids, making it harder for spots and stains to set in. And because the protection is invisible, it won’t change the look or feel of your carpets.

There are two main types of carpet protectors: Scotchgard and Teflon. Both are effective at repelling stains and dirt, but each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Scotchgard is a resin-based carpet protector that dries to form a clear, invisible film on your carpets. It’s ideal for high-traffic areas like living rooms and hallways because it’s very durable and resistant to wear.

Teflon is a fluoropolymer-based carpet protector that dries to form a clear, invisible film on your carpets. It’s ideal for areas that see a lot of spills, like kitchens and playrooms, because it repels water and oil-based spills.

Benefits of Carpet Protection Add-ons

Carpet protection is an important aspect of keeping your carpets looking new and prolonging their life. 

Carpet protectant add-on services can provide numerous benefits, including:

1. Spills and Spots Are No Match For Protected Carpets

Carpet protectants help to improve stain resistance by repelling spills and protecting against stains. It creates a protective barrier on your carpets that repels spills and stains. Water-based spills will bead up on the surface, making them much easier to clean up before they have a chance to soak in.

And if you do happen to get a spot, protected carpets will resist staining, which is a long term color change to your carpet, more than unprotected ones, giving you a better chance of removing it completely.

2. Carpet Protectants Guard Against Dirt and Dust

Just like spills and spots, our carpet protection add-on protects the fibers from absorbing dirt, dust, and other debris. This is especially important if you have allergies or asthma, as it can help to reduce the number of allergens in your home. Carpet protectants can also help to extend the life of your carpets by preventing wear and tear from foot traffic.

3. They Make Vacuuming More Effective

Vacuuming is the best way to remove dirt, dust, and other debris from your carpets. Carpet protectants can make vacuuming easier, by allowing the vacuum to glide over the surface more easily. That’s because the invisible barrier created by the protectant keeps dirt and dust from getting deep into the carpet fibers, making it easier for your vacuum to pick up things since they stay on the surface instead of deep in the carpet fibers. 

4. Protection From Fading

Carpet protectants can help to protect your carpets from fading, by blocking out UV rays.

This is important since UV rays can cause carpets to fade over time. Carpet protectants help to extend the life of your carpets by blocking out these harmful rays. They improve the appearance of your carpets by keeping them looking newer for longer.

5. They’re Long-Lasting

Carpet protectants can last for up to 12 months, so you don’t have to worry about reapplying them every few weeks like you would with other types of carpet cleaners. And since they create an invisible barrier on your carpets, you won’t even know they’re there – except for the fact that your carpets will look and feel cleaner and fresher for longer.

6. Carpet Protection Add-ons are Safe to Use Around Kids and Pets

Carpet protectants are safe to use around kids and pets, so you don’t have to worry about them coming into contact with harmful chemicals. We simply apply the protectant to your carpets and then allow it to dry completely before letting kids or pets back into the room. There are no weird scents or changes long-term other than your carpet will repel spots, and wear and tear more easily. 

7. They’re Affordable

Carpet protectants are relatively inexpensive, especially when you compare them to the cost of replacing your carpets, and needing to get your carpets cleaned every other month. And since they last for up to 12 months, you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck.

How to Choose the Right Carpet Protectant for Your Home

When choosing a carpet protectant, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, consider the type of carpet you have and the level of protection you need. If you have light-colored carpets, you’ll want to choose a product that’s specifically designed for them. And if you have pets or kids, you’ll need a protectant that’s tough enough to stand up to spills and stains.

At TruRinse we believe in cleaning without harming the environment or the people and animals that enjoy it. Our motto truly clean means truly rinsed™  reflects our commitment to the science of cleaning without harm.

If you’re looking for a great way to protect your carpet from damage and keep it looking new, our protectants take care of that job.

This is the second time... we’ve hired this company and they’ve gone above and beyond both times. We had Andrew clean our carpets today and he was so positive, professional, attentive, and generous. The carpets look amazing. He was able to get crushed slime out of our master bedroom carpet and toddler urine out of my daughter’s bedroom. 😂 You would never know how much my kids abuse these carpets based on these “after” pictures. Thank you, Andrew and the TruRinse team who set up the appointment and communicated so clearly. I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know and will be reaching out in the future for another cleaning! Also, I REALLY appreciate the very clean, fragrance free, natural salt product you use! It cleans so well without any of the junk!!! 👏👏👏read more
