Professional Fabric Protector

After your fabric is cleaned, it will need to be protected. Fabric Protector keeps your fabric clean longer and helps avoid permanent staining. Don’t leave your fabric unprotected. The protector will be sprayed evenly on all the fabric, then brushed in. It then “wicks” into the fibers of the fabric creating a protective barrier against soil and stain. Your next cleaning will be more effective as the protector will “en-capsule” body oils and soils that accumulate on the fabric. When it is cleaned, more soil will be removed as a result of the treatment.

Treated Upholstery will: Last longer, look better and keep looking new. 

Fabric Protection Treatment

  • Has no smell and is non-allergenic
  • Does not change the look or feel of the fabric

How to Care for Your Upholstery and Draperies

  • Rotate all loose cushions frequently to ensure even wear.
  • Vacuum dust and dirt from all fabric, cracks and crevasses.
  • Fabric protection is the best possible way to extend the life of your upholstery.
  • Vacuum often to reduce grit that can cause abrasion.
  • Reverse loose cushions weekly for even wear.
  • Protect from the sun. Ultraviolet light can cause deterioration.
  • Keep pets off furniture. Pet’s body oils rub off and are very difficult to remove.
  • Use caution with clothing such as Blue Jeans. Fabric dyes can transfer onto upholstered furniture.
  • All upholstered furniture will become soiled through use. Most spills and soil on upholstery that has fabric protection will clean easily and quickly provided the proper cleaning procedures are followed. A fabric protector application is not an absolute impenetrable barrier and improper cleaning methods can damage both the fabric and the treatment.
  • Blot (don’t rub) spills immediately with a clean absorbent cloth while the spill is still fresh. Dried spills are more difficult to remove.
  • Identify the cleaning code for your type of fabric. This determines what type of cleaning agent to use.
  • Always read and follow the instructions on the cleaning agent.
  • Use distilled water with the cleaning agent if water is called for.
  • Pre-test any cleaner on any fabric in a hidden area. Check for color-fastness and fabric compatibility.
  • Keep a small spill small. Work lightly, blotting from center to the edges. “Feather” the edges by dampening edges irregularly and blotting quickly to avoid rings.
  • Quickly dry a cleaned spot using a small fan or blow dryer on low.

Cleaning Codes

  • Spot clean with water based shampoo or foam upholstery cleaner.
  • Spot clean with a water-free cleaning solvent.
  • Spot clean with upholstery shampoo, foam from mild detergent, or a mild dry cleaning solvent.
  • Clean only by vacuuming or light brushing with a non-metallic brush. Do not use water or dry cleaning solvents.

Always pre-test for color loss and fabric compatibility. Do not over-wet! Always call Buddy for a professional cleaning or if you have any questions!

How to Care for Your Ceramic Tile

Purchase a high quality dust mop and sweep your ceramic tile floors daily. This is especially important in new installations where the grout has not fully cured. Dirt, mud and sand grind into the grout mortar from heavy foot traffic. Dirt collecting mats should be placed in frequently used entrances and shaken out weekly. We do not recommend the use of floor waxes as they can be difficult to remove from ceramic tile floors. As long as your floor is properly sealed and maintained, you should find no need for these products. Shower stall and tub enclosures should have proper ventilation. Stagnant water breeds stain causing mildew as well as other fungal growth. Mop or sponge your tile down 2-3 times weekly. Mix 1 capful of dish washing liquid per gallon of hot water. Mop up excess water and rinse with fresh water. Mop excess water again and allow to dry. Buffing with a dry towel will help reduce spotting.

How to Care for Your Marble and Natural Stone 

Dust mop interior floors frequently using a non-treated dry dust mop. Sand, dirt, and grit do the most damage to natural stone surfaces due to their abrasive qualities. Mats or area rugs inside and outside an entrance will help to minimize the particles that will scratch your stone floor. Be sure that the underside of the mat or rug has a non-slip surface. Normally, it will take a person about 8 steps on a floor surface to remove sand or dirt from the bottom of their shoes. Do NOT use vacuum cleaners that are worn. The metal or plastic attachments on the wheels may scratch the surface.


  • DO must mop frequently.
  • DO clean surfaces with mild detergent or stone soap.
  • DO thoroughly rinse & dry the surface after washing.
  • DO blot up spills immediately.
  • DO protect floor surfaces with non-slip mats or area rugs and counter tops with coasters or trivets.


  • DON’T use vinegar, lemon juice or cleaners containing acids or marble, limestone, travertine or onyx.
  • DON’T use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners, grout cleaners or tub & tile cleaners.
  • DON’T use abrasive cleaners such as dry cleansers or soft cleansers.
  • DON’T mix bleach and ammonia; this combination creates a toxic and lethal gas.
