All Westex Carpets have a Stain Resist treatment applied. Stain Resist protects your carpet against the majority of water based and oil stains - giving you more time to attend to the more easily removed stain.
An active formula forms bonds with the fibre. It provides protection against dirt and damp and therefore makes caring for the carpet easier. Stains cannot penetrate the fibre. They remain locked on the surface and can easily be removed. The breathable properties of the fibre are not affected.
Shampooing and professional carpet cleaning products cannot break the bonds between the active chemical and fibre. The performance of the Stain Resist will last 5 years, subject to normal, reasonable use.
Stain Resist is free from CFCs and is dermatologically tested. The Stain Resist polymers show no toxicity even at the highest applied levels and no bioavailability, metabolism or hydrolysis.
Stain Resist is not a stain blocker. Stain Resist slows the staining down giving time to get the carpet cleaned. It also holds dirt up making it easier to clean off.
Aggressive stains such as turmeric and red wine may be more difficult to clear.
Chemically active stains such as urine or bleach may actually damage the fibre itself; the Stain Resist cannot stop these chemically active products.
