3 Reasons you should use a fabric protector on your lounge, sofa & dining chairs

Why protect your lounge, sofa or dining chairs?

Life is busy. Little people and big people fill your house, and accidents will happen. At some stage someone will bump someone else holding a cuppa, the chocolate cake crumbs will make their way into the sofa fabric weave and a splash of juice will stain the upholstered dining chairs.

So protecting your sofa or lounge provides peace of mind. It allows you not to have to focus on what people are doing, but focus on them and being a part of the activities.

In brief – a fibre protector applied to your sofa or lounge will


      1. protect it from stains and spills
      2. make it much easier and more effective when you need to clean
      3. and will help protect your health
Premium Surface Protection for fabric sofas

1. Protect from Stains and Spills

Owning soft furnishings like a lovely comfortable fabric lounge or sofa or beautifully upholstered dining chairs always come with that nagging voice in your head ”don’t drop anything on it!’. Most of the time if we have kids, that voice is not just in our heads, but is audible many times a day!

From cake, chocolate and cheese to coffee and other drinks, we are constantly watching out for our furnishings trying to avoid the inevitable.

If you could protect your soft furnishings, and have a professional guarantee that they would be protected from stains and spills, then it makes perfect sense to take that extra step to protect them and have them looking their best for longer.


How does a fabric protector work to protect from stains on your lounge or sofa?

Premium Surface Protection products (Fiber Protector or MicroSeal) work via nanotechnology, penetrating the textiles they are applied to to give a high level of permanency. Premium Surface Protection products are not coaters like Scotchgarde and teflon style products, and don’t carry the health risks or performance effectiveness issues associated with these types of products; so they are really safe for the whole family, including the little 4-legged ones!.

Accidents naturally will happen.

The coffee splash, the red wine spill, the smudged in chocolate from little fingers, or a drop of oil from your favourite cheese; but all these can be simply cleaned up if you have protected your fabric before they happen.

Depending on the spill, you may only need an absorbent paper or chamois to catch up the beading on top of the fibres.

If the spill does sink into the fibres, use an absorbent paper or chamois, and then a spot cleaner like Wonderspot to raise the contaminants to the surface and then blot away.

2. Make it easier and more effective when it comes to cleaning

Fabric protectors help increase surface tension. This means that any liquid spilt on the fibre cannot easily penetrate the surface. With proper application, fabric protectors applied to your fabrics will prevent immediate absorption of any spills, and can effectively be absorbed with a chamois or absorbent paper.

Due to the increased surface tension and fibre protection, dust, dirt and crumbs don’t get trapped inside the fibres and break up within the fibres causing more mess and internal staining. The dust, dirt and crumbs sit high up in the weave and can be more effectively removed with vacuuming faster and with no fibre damage. This makes the whole cleaning process easy.


3. Protecting the fibres means protecting your health

Fibres in your lounge or sofa are the perfect place for allergens, mites, moulds and other disease-causing germs to grow and cause health issues. Without proper protection and cleaning, germ-ridden furniture and carpets can cause major health issues for any member of the family.


How does a fibre protector stops allergens, mites, mould and other germs?

The nanotechnology of Fiber ProTector and MicroSeal keep the allergens out of the upholstery fillings and they can then be easily vacuumed up.
