Carpet & Upholstery Protector FAQ
Q. How often should I protect my Carpets and Upholstery?
A. We recommend re-applying the solution once every two years. Or, reapply it whenever the items are thoroughly cleaned.
Q. How do I protect my cream-coloured fabric sofa?
A. Firstly, the Protector works on all colours of fabric. From new you should use our Carpet & Upholstery Protector as soon as your sofa arrives. This will help against everyday staining. As it is a light colour, we recommend wiping it down once a week with a damp cloth to remove surface dirt and dust.
For an old or used sofa, you should first give the sofa a deep clean with our Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner to remove any dirt. If your fabric is stained, use one of our fabric stain removers. Once clean, apply our Carpet & Upholstery Protector. We recommend using our Carpet & Upholstery Care Kit.
QI have new fabric shoes – will this work on them too?
A. Yes. Our Carpet & Upholstery Protector will work on any fabric item. It will also protect canvas, textiles and all upholstery.
Q. Will the Carpet & Upholstery Protector alter the look or feel of my material?

A. Yes, it is completely safe to use around children and pets. Our Carpet & Upholstery Protector is water-based.
Q. What should I do if I spill coffee on my new protected item?
A. As the material has been protected, the coffee will not be able to penetrate the fabric. Using a clean, dry cloth, blot the coffee from the surface of the fabric to remove excess liquid.
You should then use our Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner to clean the area, removing any residue left – always blot the area, do not rub. Once dried from cleaning, reapply our Carpet & Upholstery Protector to this area.
