How it Works…
Teflon Advanced delivers its protection by forming a molecular shield around each carpet fiber. The shield lowers the surface energy of the carpet fibers causing them to repel liquid spills and dust and dirt. This helps prevent dirt and stains from being ground into or
absorbed by the fibers.
Undetectable by sight, smell or touch, Teflon protects all kinds of carpets. The repellent characteristic of Teflon keeps dirt from sticking to the fibers, making carpets easier to care for. This helps your carpets look cleaner and fresher longer.

- Does Cleaning Remove the Teflon?
Some Teflon Advanced carpet protector is removed from the fiber from heavy traffic or aggressive cleaning. Some product may also be removed by strong cleaning agents and chemicals. Check with your supplier to determine which cleaning agents you may need to avoid. It is generally recommended to re-apply Teflon Advanced each time the carpet is cleaned.
- How often should protectors be applied?
Since the biggest enemy of the protectors is abrasion from traffic, and traffic varies with each situation, the general recommendation for re-application is after each cleaning. The same conditions that led to the need for cleaning probably have led to the need to refresh the carpet protection.
- Is Teflon appropriate for all fibers?
Yes, Teflon Advanced provides protection from soil and stains on all types of carpet fibers. A special formulation of Teflon Advanced carpet protector has now been developed for use on wool fibers.

Teflon Advanced is suitable to protect upholstery made from most cotton, nylon, polyester, and blends of these fibers. But if water damage is a possibility or a concern, do not apply the product.
