Life happens – often when we’re almost not even looking. Oops, your beloved puppy had an accident on your new carpet! Oh no…your 4-year-old spilled juice on your new carpet! Not me too…just spilled my morning coffee!!!
When it comes to flooring options for your home, at Barry Carpet we believe in offering products that combine the best in style and innovation – so your new flooring not only looks beautiful but will also hold up to everyday life in your home. And when there’s something new and great out there in the marketplace, we work hard to get it on our showroom floor and get the word out to all of you.
That’s why we’re excited to tell you about the latest development in the world of carpet – LifeGuard from Shaw. If you have pets or small children and are especially concerned about spills, stains, and other damage to your floors, you’ll want to check out this amazing new carpet technology.
So what exactly is LifeGuard? Here’s a bit of the technical info:
LifeGuard is a revolutionary carpet protection system in that it covers the entire product – from the carpet fibers all the way through to the carpet backing.
On the face of the carpet is Shaw’s exclusive R2X stain and soil resistance system. Unlike conventional repellents that protect only the surface of the carpet, R2X provides complete carpet protection – from the top of the yarn to the bottom. With R2X, spills that reach the base of the yarn don’t penetrate the fibers. This provides superior initial stain protection and allows you more time to react when an accident occurs. Another significant benefit is that even after repeated cleanings, R2X continues to perform well.
On the back of LifeGuard carpet, you also get a 100% thermoplastic commercial-grade backing. This highly water-resistant barrier literally keeps spills from soaking through the carpet and damaging the subfloor below. LifeGuard is the first residential-use carpet to offer this waterproof technology.
Flooring Protection…or Magic?
We all know what a mess coffee can make when spilled on carpet. So what happens when hot coffee is spilled on a LifeGuard carpet? We did the test, and it blew our minds. The coffee quickly balled up on the surface of the carpet. I took a dry white towel and blotted. Then I took a wet white towel and blotted. The carpet was clean – and no coffee went through to the backing! It was quite honestly unbelievable. Except that we all witnessed it.
