Again this is not what stain protection is designed for, and direct sunlight for extended periods can affect the stain protection itself. Colour fade will happen with most classes of carpets, and stain protection will have no effect on that. It is a transparent coating, after all. This angle however can also be addressed with the correct carpet colour correction expertise.
So you have all the truths. Now you just ought to choose if stain protection will aid you to prevent stains in your home? Personally, We suggest stain protection downstairs, in a lounge and dining room. This helps to ensure that you can respond fast enough to any spillages, with many young kids racing around.
Upstairs, however, even with carpets that are 80/20 wool, some don’t bother if you don’t let drinks upstairs; there is minimal risk of staining upstairs. But we are all different, so give this some thought. We hope we have answered your questions and you still feel it may be worthwhile.
There is just one final question How much does carpet stain protection cost? But that one carries slightly more research as it’s a how long is a piece of string scenario! The cost will depend on if it’s a new carpet or an existing installed carpet, the size of the room and surroundings.
We can tell you that stain protection applied as part of professional carpet cleaning can cost as little as £10 per room. If the risk of staining is high, it’s probably a minimal investment.
