Teflon® Advanced Carpet Protector is applied after a carpet has been properly cleaned. It is applied by spray application, dries quickly, and leaves no odor.
- Use any good quality, clean pressure sprayer, either electric or hand-operated. Stainless steel or plastic tanks are recommended to prevent rusting or staining. Use a #8004 Tee Jet nozzle. Spray pressure should not exceed 60 psi (do not aerosolize or atomize). Teflon® Advanced is also available for in-line sprayers like the Hydro-force* Revolution*. For the Hydro-force the truckmount should be set at 300 psi and use a #8006 Tee Jet nozzle.
- Hold the spray nozzle 12 to 18 in from carpet, and apply half the prepared spray mix over the entire carpet area, spraying in one direction only. Then apply the other half over the entire carpet area, spraying in the opposite direction.
- Be certain to maintain enough spray pressure to ensure a
uniform spray pattern.
- If the pump tank is fitted with a pressure gauge, do not
allow the pressure to drop below 38 psi.
- Note: It is extremely important to obtain uniform
coverage. Uneven application may result in uneven soiling.
- To obtain the best performance from Teflon® Advanced, work the product into the carpet immediately after spraying.
- Use a pile brush on pile type construction.
- Use a shag rake for open shag construction.
- Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe spray from the furniture or woodwork. Dried solid Teflon® Advanced usually can be removed by using a mild detergent solution.
- Allow the carpet to dry. The soil and stain protection of Teflon® Advanced will be fully effective as soon as the carpet is dry.
