Shaw Carpet R2X Stain Guard Solution

What is the best carpet cleaner?

The best carpet cleaning solution is always preventative maintenance. It behooves everyone when buying a carpet to seriously consider the factory pre-stain and soil treatment solution. In this case, Shaw Industries has the superior product by far, R2X. R2X from my experience is one of the best carpet cleaners when the soil and stain repellent is applied during manufacture.

R2X® is a Stain and Soil Repellent that protects carpet fibers from dirt and spills.

The R2X Stain and Soil Resistance system was first introduced in 2001 after years of research and testing. It quickly has become the textile carpet industry’s fastest-growing protective carpet treatment. It is a revolutionary textile chemical technology advancement. It is as innovative today as the first carpet stain and soil treatments were decades ago.

Why a Carpet Consumer should consider a Shaw carpet with R2X treatment.

The Shaw R2X system goes beyond the conventional stain and soil repellents that only protect the surface of the carpet. With the R2X technology, your carpets are “armored” with total fiber coverage The R2X system offers complete protection from the top to the bottom of the yarn (the treatment is not just a topical applied stain guard). Rather, R2X provides total fiber coverage that offers an uncomparable protection against household spills and everyday soiling. With the R2X system, the spills that reach the base of the yarn do not penetrate the carpet’s fiber base system and wick back to the top as they do with conventional solutions. This phenomenon explains the typical stain that does not go away with constant cleaning and professional services.

The R2X Stain and Soil Resistance System is an amazing technical achievement.

In testing, R2X demonstrated superior carpet stain resistance on two levels. First, it provides better initial protection. And secondly, it allows more time to react to a problem. Another significant benefit of R2X is its effectiveness with polyester and polypropylene fibers. Polyester and polypropylene carpets have an inherent tendency to attract soil. Meanwhile, topical soil carpet treatments are only “skin deep,” and this limited protection offered eventually wears away after cleaning or normal wear and tear. In contrast, R2X continues to perform well after repeated cleanings. As such, the performance of nylon, polyester, and polypropylene treated with an ordinary system begins to diminish. Moreover, Shaw’s warranty protection ensures customer satisfaction.
