What Are The Benefits Of Using ChemDry Repel?
Our Repel Protection works by giving carpets and upholstery extra protection from dry soiling and accidental spillages. It helps your valuable carpets stay cleaner for longer, vacuum easier, have improved stain resistance and increases their life. The Key Benefits of using Repel include:
- Ease of clean up – The Repel protection helps to limit the ability of spilled materials to grab onto carpet fibres. This makes the clean up of spills really easy.
- A longer window of opportunity – The stain-blocking nature of carpet protectant products gives you more time to deal with a spill. You will still want to deal with spills rapidly but the carpet protection can remove the “panic factor” associated with spill clean up.
- Easier maintenance – Not only does carpet protectant provide stain-fighting capability, it also makes it harder for dirt to grab onto carpet fibers. This means that regular vacuuming is easier and more effective.
- Improved appearance – Carpet protectant solutions are a barrier to stains and dirt. This keeps your carpet looking like new for a longer period.
How Does it Work?
Accidents are bound to happen and the protection is designed to help prevent the damage these have on your carpets. Once applied, our carpet protectant creates a protective, water resistant barrier that stops stains and spills penetrating the fabric. This allows them to be easily cleaned away without damaging your furniture or carpets. The protection works by creating surface tension that makes the fabric less absorbent By coating the carpet fibres it also gives them somewhat of a non-stick surface. It does have its limitations. Red wine spilled on a treated carpet that is left to soak in is still going to leave a mark. But the protection will give you more time and a better opportunity to clean things. Take some paper kitchen towel and dab gently and watch the stain soak up.
Notice how the liquid droplets lay on the surface giving you time to dab and soak up with a kitchen paper roll. or towel. ChemDryRepel is a solution thats add to the cleaning solution to protect your fabrics.
