Prochem protects £5000 rug

Pre-party protection for a £5000 rug at a prestigious London kitchen and furnishing retailer has been resolved with an application of Prochem's Fluoroseal® CF Carpet Protector.

The owners of Valcucine's showrooms reasoned that some added insurance would be desirable given guests attending a new product launch would be enjoying their drinks and canapés on its showpiece rug.

Hotels and restaurants specialists Carpet Preservation Services (CPS) recommended and applied innovative B130 Fluoroseal CF from Prochem Europe using a spray, and then brushed the solution into the rug and allowed it to dry.

"This was a very prestigious location with very high quality fixtures and fittings, and notably this enormous rug," says CPS Director of Operations, Nick Bull. "It was clearly sensible of the owners to get us in to protect an investment like this."

Demand for carpet protection work is on the increase for CPS, which provides professional carpet, upholstery and curtain cleaning services predominantly to four- and five-star hotels throughout London and the outlying Home Counties.

"As always, quality contracts demand quality solutions and Prochem offer a very comprehensive range of chemicals like this that get the job done effectively and quickly," adds Nick Bull.

Woolsafe-approved Fluoroseal CF uses cationic fluoropolymer technology for durable soil and stain resistance and comes ready-to-use without dilution on most wet-cleanable fabrics and carpets after extraction cleaning. Application is straightforward, using a pressure sprayer fitted with the correct fan tip spray and a suitable carpet or upholstery brush.

A high quality professional carpet protector, Fluoroseal CF coats and protects fibres, providing excellent repellency and protection against oil and water-based soils and spills, with the added benefit that the product can be used on both carpets and upholstery. It is suitable for use on most new or freshly-cleaned wet-cleanable carpets, rugs and fabrics, subject to pre-testing and assessment.
