DID YOU KNOW that one of the best ‘feel good’ experiences you can enjoy is having freshly-cleaned carpet or furniture?
And one of the most frustrating experiences you won’t enjoy is when, within just a few days, something like red wine, coffee or tea is spilled on that freshly cleaned carpet or furniture.
So you feverishly apply all kinds of household cleaning products and scrub in desperation. That spot does look a little better but it is still there. You have an important appointment so you give up. When coming home a few hours later… it has grown! (This is another mystery and you might want to ask your carpet cleaning pro why this happens.)
This frustration can be avoided with the preventative measure of using fabric protection on your carpet and furniture. Spectrum Carpet uses the trusted brand of Scotch guard. It essentially repels spills away from the surface so it does not seep into the fabric or carpet.
Yes, fabric protection does cost a little bit more but… it’s worth investing in your furniture.
Despite actively preventing spills and severe damage to your carpet and furniture, it is important not to skip regular cleaning. Anything that is dirty will wear out prematurely. Fabric protection enhances a good cleaning. It’s an added step that you want for your carpet and furniture in your home.
So you want peace of mind? The next time you have your carpet or furniture cleaned, ask Spectrum for protection. You will like it… and so will your carpet and furniture.
