What is Green Guard? The Best Way to Protect Your Carpet, Rugs, & Upholstery

One question we are consistently asked is, “Now that the new carpet/rug is in my home, how do I care for it?” Let this Blog post serve as a guide on best practices for caring for your new carpet or rug. To begin, the best thing you can do is add what we call Green Guard to your order. What is Green Guard?

It is a protective coating applied to carpets, rugs, and upholstery which helps protect the piece from stains. It is a solvent based, non-toxic product and will not change the touch, feel or breathability of the piece to which it is applied. Green Guard will not readily wear and will hold up to numerous cleanings. With it comes a 1 Year Service Contract on any carpeting and/or upholstery we treat. The contract covers spot cleaning of any accidental spills and/or stains, at no cost, within our service area. This topical solution is safe for kids and pets while ensuring the color of your carpet doesn’t fade and looks newer for longer! Keep reading to learn more about to how to take care of your already protected carpets.

Green guard is formulated with the following features:

  • Non Toxic
  • Skin Friendly
  • Biodegradable
  • and No Fragrances!

How To Take Care of Your Carpets with Green Guard

The first step is to vacuum! It is important to vacuum your rugs daily. If the material is wool, please be sure to avoid any vacuum with a beater bar or rotating brush.
Blot any spills with a white towel or paper towel and a little bit of cold water. Never rub aggressively!
If any spot/stain can’t easily be removed, just let us know! Service calls are covered at no extra charge for 1 year after being guarded.
Annual maintenance cleanings are recommended (at additional, but discounted rate).
