Keep That Sun Off Your New Carpeting!

Summer is here and you got that much-anticipated bonus or income tax refund and bought brand new carpeting for your home!  It is clean and crisp and looking good! And you’re worrying about foot traffic and spills staining that new carpeting.  But are you worried about that sunshine?

Now that Summer is here, the sunshine is starting to peak through more and more every day. And while carpet will fade and change color over time, you can keep it lasting longer by keeping those sun rays off.

The carpeting industry refers to it as sun rot, which is the result of sun exposure. This will start that fading as soon as that carpet gets any natural light. Facts you may not realize about your carpeting and the sun:

  • Approximately 40% of carpet fading is from ultraviolet light
  • Approximately 25% of carpet fading is from solar heat and visible light
  • Approximately 10% of carpet fading is from artificial lighting, heat, humidity, and poor dye

With Ultraviolet radiation accounting for the largest percentage of fading, it is a must to protect your carpet from UV light year round no matter what part of the country you live in. Just about the biggest threat for carpet fading comes from the glass doors and windows that are facing southwest.

However, in a six-month period, carpet that isn’t protected from direct, unfiltered sunlight will have noticeable fading. Keep direct sunlight off of your carpet. Using blinds, curtains, and shades, closing them as needed.

Carpet Protector: Your best choice for preventing stains

Carpet Protector: your best choice for preventing stains

Almost all American-made synthetic carpet offer some sort of stain protection, which makes it easier than ever to remove spots. These treatments make carpet relatively impervious to spotting from food, beverages or pet accidents. But over time the protective chemicals can be worn away by heavy traffic. All carpet is ultimately a fiber. When treated with a stain treatment after cleaning, whether it is a stain resistant fiber or not, your carpet will be better equipped to repel stains.

Why You Should Have a Carpet Protector Applied After Cleaning

Over time the mill-applied carpet protectors can lose their effectiveness. This is due to the fibers being abraded during foot traffic. Although protective treatments are very good, they do need to be replenished after a few years of use, especially in high-traffic areas. The protection applied in the mill can wear off over time, and portions of the fiber can be exposed during abrasions that were not exposed during the mill treatment. The application of a carpet protector after cleaning will ensure that the performance of the fiber will be maintained.

Benefits to carpet protector

Applying a carpet protector is always a good choice for preventing permanent stains.
