How do our products and
services save you money and give you peace of mind?
If you have a brand new lounge, rug, carpet, car, boat or airplane – getting the best fabric protection applied to your furnishings protects the fibres for longer wear and beauty – less professional cleaning and hence saves you money.
PSP products are a preventative maintenance system that makes fibres less absorbent.
This means you have time to grab a cloth or paper towel and blot away spills easily.
They also protect the colour and integrity of the fibres, meaning they look nicer for much longer!
How does the Best Fabric Protection work?
It’s a bit like water rolling off a ducks back. We use quality protection treatments that repel both water and oil based spills. A protector to suit your particular circumstance is applied to your new or freshly cleaned item. When it’s dry, it makes each fiber less absorbent so that it resists contamination by liquid spills. This buys you time to grab a cloth and blot away the spill before it causes damage or causes a permanent stain. It makes spot cleaning easier and makes fabrics last longer and clean better than unprotected fabrics.
Drying time ranges between 30 minutes and 2 hours depending on what it is applied to and conditions, items can be used straight away after this period.
Will it need to be reapplied after it is professionally cleaned?
Proper upholstery cleaning should not remove our well applied protectors, especially if the right cleaning agents have been used. However it does wear down over a period of time. We generally recommend re-application of our fibre protection after 3-5 professional cleanings, depending on the traffic and use the furnishings are exposed to.
PSP fabric protection products will not make your product invulnerable, but does give you the BEST POSSIBLE chance of stain removal by yourself or by a professional, all fabrics can be permanently stained by soiling.
Does it make fibres bullet proof?
No it won’t stop bullets or paint, bleach or battery acid, or highly acidic stains e.g. Urine, vomit, bleach, iodine, ink or food dyes, but will resist spills of normal household beverages such as soft drink and juices, the things you are more likely to spill, plus it makes your spot cleaning much easier from those little sticky fingers and the like. It also helps keep your furnishings cleaner than if unprotected and extends the life of your furnishings.
Even though no warranty is implied or given on highly acidic soiling, e.g. Urine, vomit, bleach, iodine, ink or food dyes, testing and customer feedback has shown they can still be successfully cleaned after application of a PSP surface protection treatment if prompt action is taken, if this type of soiling is left, the fibers can be burnt and structural integrity of the fiber changed, it is not merely a mark to be removed with spot cleaning but a permanently damaged fiber. This type of spill would cause instant permanent damage if un protected.
Our products give great Sun Fade protection and independent lab test reports show significant UVA and UVB resistant benefits over a wide variety of synthetic and natural fibers.
Beading: the type of fabric, the type of liquid, hot liquids, or the height of the spill will affect beading. However the application causes the spills to be suspended between the fibers and not absorbed. Oil Based Spills: the spill may not bead because the weight of the oil will drive the stain between the fibers. While still wet, apply a paper towel to absorb the oil. Oil based stains are the easiest stains for professional cleaners to address.
