How does dry solvent stain protection work?

Professional dry solvent stain protection works by forming a durable microscopic, fluorocarbon barrier around each fibre to lock out dirt, grime, water and oil-based liquids. Spills on your furnishings will immediately bead up and can be easily blotted away.

No stain protection treatment is completely impenetrable; however, they will give you an extended window of time to blot up the spill.

Is stain protection worth having?

Whether your soft furnishings are brand new or freshly cleaned, it is almost guaranteed that you will have those whoops moments for time to time where you accidently kick over a cup of tea, coffee or glass of wine or the kids nudge their plates onto the floor leaving unsightly marks from food.

Unfortunately, if left for too long those marks can become permanent stains that no amount of professional cleaning will ever remove. Stain protection extends the window of time you have to tend to the spill and can extend the lifespan of your furnishings considerably.

Will stain protection prevent all stains?

Every spill is different and has its own unique characteristics. They can even vary based on temperature. A piping hot cup of tea, straight from the pot for example, if spilt can instantly heat set to the fabric or fibres making it very difficult to remove. Generally speaking though, as long as you tend to a spillage promptly and correctly stain protection typically has an 85% success rate
