There's nothing better than recently cleaned carpets. They look great, smell fresh and feel fantastic under your feet. Many of our customers want these benefits to last as long as possible, which is why they consider a carpet protector.

Our Clean and Protect option is one of our most popular services, and for good reason. Invisible to the naked eye, our carpet protector is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and odourless when dry. It can protect carpets from damage caused by heavy foot traffic, dirty shoes and food or drinks spillages.

But would you benefit from a carpet protector and is it worth the cost? Keep reading as we discuss the ins and outs of carpet protection.

Benefits of carpet protection

When you spill food, drinks or dyes onto your carpet, they quickly penetrate the surface and become embedded deep in the fibres. This makes is harder to remove the stain, so it could become a permanent part of your carpet until you have it professionally cleaned.

A protector acts as a barrier, preventing spillages from penetrating your carpet as quickly, giving you a better chance of cleaning the stain and eliminating permanent damage. Here are some of the key benefits…

Increases carpet lifespan

A carpet protector can extend the life of your carpet. By preventing water, dirt, mould and bacteria damage, a protector can save money in the long run.

Improves appearance

Carpets are walked on daily and it’s never long before they start to look worn and dingy. A carpet protector can prevent colour fading and keep your floor looking new for longer.

Prevents odours

Even if you tackle stains straight away, spillage odours can remain long after the stain has gone. Carpet protectors help to prevent these odours and keep your home smelling fresh.

Aids cleaning

While regular vacuuming and cleaning is essential, a protector can make this chore a little easier. By providing a barrier between the carpet and spillages, it’s much easier to clean up any mess.

Is it worth it?

At Clean & Dry Rotherham, we would recommend carpet protection for the vast majority of customers. The treatment is almost always worth the investment because of the protection it offers your carpets long after application.

Our comprehensive cleaning packages, such as the Perfect Care Plan, all include carpet protector. However, if you’re unsure on whether it’s right for your carpet or upholstery, our technicians are always on hand to advise you.
