• Attend to spots and spills as soon as possible. Fresh spots are significantly easier to remove. Stains that are left too long can become permanent on fibres that have been applied with Fibre Guard. Using the wrong product can also set the stain or permanently damage the fibre.
• Fibre protectors do not guarantee against all staining. Good maintenance procedures must be followed and all spills and stains removed immediately for the best result. Fibre protectors are designed to make cleaning easier and offer an improved level of water and oil based stain repellency.
• For best results use freshly diluted solutions only. Discard diluted/mixed solutions that are more than 24 hours old.
• Always test first in an inconspicuous area before using any cleaning solution. Play it safe, especially when you use a product for the first time. Better to be safe than sorry. Some surfaces can be sensitive to moisture and particular chemical types.
