Protectors, Sealers & Coatings
Upholstery also comes in a wide variety of fabric, fibers and construction styles. In contrast to rugs we’ve found that a majority of upholstered pieces will have some type of fabric protector applied when the piece was made. Or applied before installation into your home. Re-application of a protector to upholstered fabric is critical to the long-term performance of the fabric. Upholstered fabrics tend to be relatively flat and thin compared to both carpet and rugs and the protector tends to wear off much quicker, especially in the high contact areas such as seat and back cushions and arm rests. Because of the delicate nature and wide variety of fabrics used, your service technician can recommend the right choice of fabric protector for your upholstery.
Outdoor furnishings such as awnings, patio furniture and umbrellas are typically made from tough fabrics that are designed to be able to weather the elements. However, the combination of uV from the sun and the moisture from condensation and rain does call for an annual deep cleaning and application of sun fade and moisture repellent products to keep them performing well over the long-term. Zerorez offers you a choice of Solar Shield or Ray & Rain. A single application will create or restore superior waterproofing, stain and soil resistance.
Treating your grout with a penetrating sealer after cleaning will give you a longer lasting clean. The grout will clean-up easier.
We see a lot of natural stone installations and it’s surprising to find out that a lot of them did not get properly sealed after their installation. From travertine, marble, limestone and even granite they all benefit greatly from being sealed properly. Penetrating sealers will do this beautifully without changing the look or feel of the stone.
Any hardwood flooring installation will have a coating applied to protect it. These days it most likely will be a factory finish of Aluminum Oxide. However hard wax oiled flooring as well as polyurethane site cured floors are also found quite commonly. Applying a protective urethane coating after cleaning might make sense on a case by case basis.
Although vinyl flooring is not very common in residential settings we do find it quite a bit in medical offices and kitchen areas of office building. Whenever you hear the term “strip & wax” that usually refers to the process of a restorative cleaning (stripping) and then re-applying an acrylic wax as a finish coating to these type of floors.
