After your carpets and furniture are cleaned, Xtract Cleaning Services highly recommends the application of teflon protector. 3M Scotchgard works by surrounding the fibres with a barrier making it difficult for dry or wet soils to penetrate the fabric and cause rapid re-soiling or permanent stains. The barrier allows for easier removal of dry soil, which extends the time between restorative cleaning. In addition, having your carpets and furniture protected will help reduce wear and high traffic patterns. (Some carpet warranties require re-application of protector to keep the warranty in effect-check your manufacturers care guide).
