Carpet And Furniture Lasts Longer With Fiber & Fabric Protection!
To complement the State of the Art Cleaning Services program,
we offer Bridgepoint's Maxim Fiber and Fabric Protection.
This application assures you of the best protection possible
against resoiling and stains. Maxim Fiber Protection has two protective
properties. The first is an acid dye blocker that is basically a clear dye that
fills the extra dye sites in a fiber. This helps to keep "foreign"
dyes (such as red dye in a beverage) from penetrating the carpet fiber. The
second property is called a "fluorochemical". It’s commonly known as
3M Scotchgard® or DuPont Teflon®. This treatment helps keep spillage from
actually getting to the acid dye blocker, but its biggest job is to resist dry
By resisting dry soil, less soil bonds to the carpet, therefore, more soil is
being picked up by your vacuum. Making sure you have a sufficient amount of
protector on your carpet will help keep the soil from bonding to the carpet. Once
it bonds to the carpet, it acts like sandpaper on your traffic area. Once the
traffic area yarns are broken down, there is no way to bring them back to their
Bridgepoint's Maxim Fine Fabric Protector can be applied to just about any type
of furniture fabric including delicate fabrics such as silk. We can protect new
or just cleaned furniture. Bridgepoint's Maxim Fine Fabric Protector has a
solvent-based carrying agent that will not water mark delicate fabrics. Once
the product dries, it will leave a layer of protection that will help the
homeowner maintain furniture with ease.
Two Primary Ways That Protector Is Removed From A Carpet
1. Regular foot traffic. Over a period of 6 months to 2 years, depending on the
traffic, a significant amount of protector can be removed from your traffic
areas and needs to be reapplied.
2. High alkaline cleaner. Uneducated, uninformed and sometimes downright
unscrupulous carpet cleaners use harsh chemicals on the carpet that will strip
its protection. If one of these rascals has been in your house, you may want to
have the carpet re-protected.
Four Mistakes Other Cleaners Make In Applying Protector
1. Not using high quality protector. Discount protectors are not as effective
and sometimes void the carpet warranty. Our company uses only the highest
quality, recommended protectors.
2. Not using a dedicated container. Using the same container for carpet
protector as other cleaners can contaminate the carpet protector making it
gummy and ineffective. Our vans have a dedicated container reserved ONLY for
3. Not applying the product properly. Some cleaners either under apply or over
apply the protector. Under applying it doesn't allow for complete penetration
of the carpet yarns. Over applying it causes the carpet to become overly stiff
and crusty. Our company technicians are diligently trained for proper
4. Not grooming the carpet. For the best performance, the product should be
groomed into the carpet for maximum penetration. This ensures contact with all
surfaces of the carpet yarn and proper distribution and drying. Our company
thoroughly grooms the protector into the carpet pile.
Six Reasons You Should Always Get Carpet Protector
1. Reduces permanent stains. A great looking carpet can be ruined by a single,ugly
spot. Unprotected carpet doesn't repel spillage as well as protected carpet.
Protector will allow you to remove spots and spills more effectively, therefore
helping you to avoid permanent staining.
2. Helps save your traffic areas from becoming destroyed. Traffic area soil is
very abrasive and cuts carpet yarns like a knife. This damaging soil can easily
bond to an unprotected carpet. By applying protector, you will increase the
life of your carpet dramatically. When you vacuum your protected carpet the
soils will release from the carpet pile much more effectively.
3. Make spots easier to remove. The easier a spot is to remove, the less
cleaner you will have to use. The less agitation you will have to use, and the
less time it will take. Many spots can be removed easily with just water.
4. Makes your next professional cleaning more effective. Having protector
applied to your carpet will enhance your next cleaning. More soil will be
removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned.
5. Helps avoid costly service calls. Although you want to call us to handle any
spot you cannot remove immediately, carpet protector helps you remove more
spots than you could without protector. You may be able to save a minimum
charge by removing the spot yourself.
6. Your carpet will look better and last longer when it is protected.
