To complement the PREMIER Professional Services cleaning 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 is 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 soil. By resisting dry soil, less soil bonds to the carpet, therefore, more soil is being picked up by your vacuum. Making sure that 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 original state.
At Premier we use the best cleaning and protective cleaning agents money can buy. We use DuPont Teflon Carpet Protection. When carpeting is made, it has two protective properties. One is a “dye blocker” or “stain resist property. This is simply a clear dye that fills in the empty dye sites, so that it is difficult for a spill or spot to penetrate the fiber. The second is a "soil resistor." This is a product that is sprayed on and baked at a high temperature. This helps to resist against common dry soil, and as a barrier between the spill and the dye blocker. The carpet manufactures recommend re-applying protector after every cleaning. After applying DuPont Teflon to the carpet, more dry soil will be removed with vacuuming, spots will be removed easier and your carpet will last longer and look better.
