UPHOLSTERY FABRIC PROTECTION
- SCOTCHGARDING FURNITURE Scotch Guarding Furniture service or purchasing Scotchgard in a can for do-it-yourselfers comes to mind when Interior Designers suggest furniture protection. Scotchgard by 3M has been around for a long time, and it’s the operative word for stain furniture protection. But looking closely at the chemical makeup, you will find the word silicone. Silicone has been known to discolor over time or with re-application, which is necessary as it easily abrades off and cleans off. Scotchgarding fabrics have also been known to attract soil to the fabric’s surface, thereby requiring frequent cleaning, which adds more expense to your fabric care. The interior designer’s choice in fabric protection is a formula called STAIN FREE which is the stain guard used by Ultra-Guard, Inc. Ultra-Guard’s formula is a nano-tech Stain Protection formula that also, by its nature, contains an ultra-Violet inhibitor that reduces sun fade on fabric and yarn systems.
CARPET STAIN PROTECTION
- GUARDING YOUR CARPETWhen the idea of stain guarding carpet comes to mind, Dupont Teflon puts out a carpet protector used by many carpet cleaning technicians because it is an inexpensive water-based stain protector. Since it is a water-based product, it quickly wears off with use and requires replacement every time it cleanses. We apply Ultra-Guard’s nano-tech formula to protect the carpet by bonding with the yarn fiber, creating a PERMANENT STAIN GUARD barrier. This barrier prevents soil and staining agents from penetrating the fabric or yarn surface, providing lifelong stain protection and resistance against soiling.
- SCOTCHGARD PROTECTION FOR SELF APPLICATIONFor those who have small projects or small budgets and don’t mind doing it themselves, think of Scotchgarding upholstery or Scotchgarding carpet is the thing to do, but doing it yourself doesn’t make the product work any better. If you want a water-proofer for your fabrics, Scotchguard is fine, but if you want to protect your furniture and rugs against staining or sun fade, I recommend going that route. Stain Free by Ultra-Guard is not a water-proofer and will not protect outdoor furniture from direct sun or rainstorms. While we protect door or patio furniture against staining, we explain to our clients; it is not a waterproofer! If you can afford the extra expenditure, having our certified technicians apply our STAIN-FREE fabric protection is always better. Not only is it the Preferred Stain Guard in the interior design industry, but professional application assures a consistent and even application to the whole surface of your furniture or rugs. Plus, no warranty comes with self-application, whereas Ultra-Guard offers a 5-Year service warranty, so if you have a soiling or staining issue, you have someone to call with experience in removing spots and marks on the fabric or carpet. Our Ultra-Guard technicians have a 97% success ratio in removing spots and spills. Remember, our STAIN-FREE formula is not bullet-proof, but it will dramatically reduce the chances of having a permanent stain.
