The two main types of stain protectors are water-based stain protectors and solvent-based stain protectors. Always bear in mind that not every fibre can be cleaned by water-based products therefore always make sure which products best suits to your carpets and upholstery.

How to use these protectors?


  1. Measure the area you want to protect then work out how many protectors you need to put down onto the carpet by using the instructions in the product label. Always check the dilution ratio on the label, if the product is not ready-made, measure out the right amount and mix your protector. I would recommend you to use a pump-up sprayer to evenly apply the stain protector.

 2. Pump up the sprayer to the right pressure and spray onto the carpet or upholstery evenly. Wipe away any overspray with an absorbent cloth. It’s very important to use just enough product to cover the fibre, over-spraying can cause shrinkage and on the carpet.

When choosing the pump-up sprayer never use a regular garden sprayer because you won’t be able to apply evenly the stain protectors. The best to get a sprayer which is chemical resistant and with a T jet sprayer nozzle.

3. Finally gently brush in with a pile brush. Drying time depends on the fibre and the amount of the spray protector.
