Carpets and upholsteries are not unlike the paint on a car. Friction from dirt can scratch the fibers in carpet or fabric surfaces in just the same way dirt can scratch your car. If carpet is soiled, each footstep grinds against the fiber face, which permanently scars the carpet surface. The same premise applies to fabric surfaces. This is why cleaning, followed by protection is so important. Protectant is applied at the factory to carpet and upholstery to help them stay clean. Vacuuming is absolutely crucial if you want to take good care of your fabrics. A regular cleaning program is also very important. Let CleanACarpet technicians clean and protect your carpet and fabrics so protectant that has worn off, can be reapplied to repel sticky soiling. Keeping carpet and fabrics clean and protected allows more dirt to be picked up with each vacuum and keeps carpet and upholstery looking new for years!
