Fabric Protection For Your Finest Upholstered Furniture
Our fabric protection treatment is specially formulated to provide the ability to provide maximum protection against both water and oil-based stains. The exclusive blend of co-polymer fluorochemical resins will not cause re-soiling or any discoloration plus it dries without changing the hand or feel or any change in the appearance of the fabric. An application of a fabric protector to upholstery or drapes makes a fabric resist both spots and stains and allows quick, easy, and effective removal. Fabric protectors can be applied to new or freshly cleaned fabrics such as cotton, rayon, linen, silk, ultra-suede, microfibers, or chenille, just to name a few.
The advantage of having upholstery treated with a fabric protection treatment is immense. When a substance is spilled onto a piece of fabric, it absorbs into it. This allows the spill to have a full impact on the fabric and its' dyes. Quite often, substances spilled are acidic, such as coffee, tea, wine, tonic, or fruit juices, and all having color to them, they are capable of altering the dye structure of the existing dye or re-dye the fiber. Once this happens, you have a permanent stain, forever. When clients ask us how to remove stains like these, we do the best we can but it's not very promising quite often.
When you have your upholstery treated with a fabric protector many of these become a non-issue. First, most often a fresh spill will just sit on top of the fabric and is easily blotted off. Again, it never penetrates the fiber, so it will not affect either the fibers or the dyes. Second, if left alone, it will over time possibly penetrate the fibers but the impact will be greatly reduced and the possibility of removing the stain is greatly increased.
So, whether we are talking about removing a red wine stain or any other stain. I can't stress enough the importance of having any new piece of upholstery treated when it is first delivered to your home. Such a minimal cost to protect your investment.
Upon treating any of your upholstery, we will go over with you in detail, what to do in an emergency and what not to do. We will show you the proper procedures and teach you facts from fiction.
Remember not all fabric treatments are alike and not every fabric is the same. So, don't trust your new upholstery to be treated at a furniture store, where someone in a warehouse will apply an inferior fabric protection treatment, that he knows little about or has no idea if that fabric is safe to apply solvent-based or water-based fabric protector on it.
