Staingard Protection

We recommend and offer Stainguard Protection with all of our sofas.

Staingard Protector is a highly advanced formula designed for application to your upholstery fabric. It works by locking onto fibres to create an invisible, durable shield providing superb resistance to oil and water based spills. This means stains caused by normal household spills can be easily removed by simple methods even when dried in. The action of Staingard Protector also means that dirt particles do not adhere to fibres as easily, making cleaning easier and reducing fibre wear due to soil abrasion.
