Fabric Protection products have been in used by furniture manufacturers and home owners since 1940 to keep furniture and fabrics cleaner between annual cleans and to protect against accidental staining from spills such as Cordials, Black tea and Red wine.
Applying a high quality Stain resistance coating to upholstery in Auckland is important if you want to keep the fabric looking cleaner longer and to protect from accidental staining and prevent premature wear.
Stains on fabrics such as Linens, Cottons, some Nylons and Wools can be difficult to remove and often require professional attention to reverse dyes from stains and remove cleaning agents used during cleaning.
Stain Resistance Coatings called Dye Blockers prevent dyes from spills staining fabrics making accidental spills easier to remove. These ingredients work from inside the fiber.
Soil Resistance Coatings envelop individual fibers creating a moisture barrier preventing oils, and water based spills from absorbing allowing more time to mop up a spill before they absorb. These Soil Resistance treatments also shield the fibers from Acetic Perspiration and other soils including dry particulate soils which can etch and scratch fibers like sandpaper on untreated fabrics. These ingredients create a surface tension over the top of the fiber.
Flexible Polymer additives stretch and flex with the soft fabrics covering your lounge suite or dining chairs giving the fabric protection products a longer life and help make cleaning a vacuuming easier. Polymers prevent premature wear and keep the suite cleaner longer. These ingredients leave a coating over the fabric.
Many Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Services in Auckland recommend stain resistance or Fabric protection products for Upholstered furniture. But not all Fabric and stain resistance products are the same high quality with all the benefits.
Most products on the market contain one or two products, the oil and water fluid resister – the product which leads to water beading on the fabric surface and sometimes include the addition of Polymers which help easy cleaning.
However, without the addition of Dye blockers, if stains penetrate through the first layer there is little protection to prevent staining from food colouring such as Black or Herbal Teas, Red Wine, Cordial spills, Coffee and other Tannins.
