Fiber-Seal specializes in fabric care for all types of furnishings, but we are most well known for our fabric protection products and fabric protection service. The fabric care experts at Fiber-Seal have been protecting furnishings since 1971. This blog will tell you everything you need to know about fabric protection.
What is Fabric Protection?
Fabric protection will significantly reduce the absorbency of a fabric or floorcovering without changing the color, texture or feel of the fabric. This allows most spots and spills to be easily blotted away on protected furnishings, making spot cleaning a breeze. Fabric protection takes the worry out of owning fine furnishings.
How Does Fabric Protection Work?
Our skilled technicians will come to your home, office, jet or yacht and apply our proprietary treatment product. When spills or soiling occur, use a white cloth to blot up as much of the spill as you can. Often, this is all you will need to do. Fiber-Seal will supply clients with a Fabric Care Kit, containing cleaning agents and a guide for cleaning up minor everyday mishaps. If spots persist after blotting, and using your Fabric Care Kit items, there is no need to worry! Fiber-Seal offers complimentary spot cleaning on protected items.
For example, let’s say you recently had a rug protected, and you accidentally spilled red wine on it. You blot up as much as you can, but remnants of the spill are still visible. You use the products in your Fabric Care Kit as instructed, and the wine should be completely gone! Different types of spills can be more difficult to remove from certain fabrics— even with the best fabric protection for furniture— which is why we offer a complimentary spot cleaning service. In this case, if even the slightest amount of red wine was still visible, you would call your local Fiber-Seal Service Center to schedule a time for a technician to come out and work on the spot ASAP.
What Can We Protect?
We primarily do fabric upholstery protection and rug protection, but can also protect outdoor fabric, carpeting, window coverings, office panels, car interiors, leather and more! If it’s a soft surface, the odds are we can protect it. If you have any questions regarding what we will protect, reach out to your local Fiber-Seal Service Center and they will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Are Fabric Protection Products Safe?
Our most popular fabric protection spray products are GREENGUARD Gold Certified, meaning they test low for chemical emissions. GREENGUARD Gold Certification is a program that verifies that products contribute to healthier, cleaner air by reducing chemical exposure and improving the quality of air indoors. This certification process includes helping reduce indoor air pollution and minimizing chemical exposure to create healthy indoor environments. As soon as the furnishings are dry, people and pets can freely walk and sit on them safely since there is no off-gassing with our products.
