What is the difference between All Clean FiberShield® and Fiber-Seal®? We receive many calls from Designers and prospective clients asking us that question. We are happy to answer! We acknowledge that the Fiber-Seal® product is well accepted and they operate a successful franchise providing products similar to FiberShield® in chemical makeup, but also proprietary in nature just like us. Beyond the names, however, what are the differences?
All Clean FiberShield® Area Coverage – All Clean is a private non-franchised company serving the Metro New York, Westchester, Northern New Jersey, Long Island and Southern Connecticut regions on an everyday basis. All Clean has also completed projects in Palm Beach Fl., Marco Island Fl., Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Newport, Rhode Island. We will travel! This is important when choosing a service provider in your territory.
Fiber-Seal® Area Coverage – Fiber-Seal®, on the other hand, is a franchise with four Fiber-Seal® franchises in this territory. There is New Jersey Fiber-Seal®, Fiber-Seal® Metro (Manhattan only), Long Island Fiber-Seal® and Fiber-Seal® Connecticut. If you are a Designer in the metro area which would be your choice?
Spotting Warranties – Both All Clean FiberShield® and Fiber-Seal® offers an 18-month spotting warranty. As a full-service cleaning company, however, All Clean FiberShield® can clean everything they protect. Fiber-Seal®, on the other hand, is an application only franchise which means all other services are contracted out to other companies. Their spotting warranty, for example, is provided by a second party cleaning company and can vary in all aspects. With this model should there be unseen problems or damage of your client’s furniture of textiles, who is responsible? Mmmmmmm!
Certified Trained Technicians – All Clean FiberShield® is staffed by American Society of Cleaning and Restoration (ASCR) certified highly trained technicians who are also full-time employees. They are visible throughout the tri-state region in their fully wrapped mobile vans. All Clean FiberShield® offers a state-of-the-art cleanroom warehouse/work room facility capable of treating bulk fabrics or any other fabrics requiring pre-treatment, cleaning, drying, restoration, and storage. Fiber-Seal® is an application company so they simply apply protectant to fabrics or textiles. In contrast, All Clean FiberShield® is a full-service company performing both cleaning, application, and restoration – That is the All Clean FiberShield® difference!
