Professional Stain Guard Vs. DIY

A carpet technician comes out to your house to give you an estimate on cleaning the carpets in your home. After seeing each area you would like clean he gives you an estimate and asks if you would like to consider having him apply a stain guard. This leads you to think the technician is trying to upsell another product to make more money from the job.

Applying stain guard to your carpet is actually one of the best things you can do for your floors.

2 Nearly every new carpet is applied with stain protector in the manufacturing process but over time the protection wears away and needs to be reapplied
