All Clean Fiber-Shield® Interior Design professional Q&A
What is FiberShield®?
FiberShield® is a blended penetrating mixture of specialty polymers contained in a waterborne, or petroleum carrier - (Simply a means of uniformly "delivering the polymer") designed to protect fabrics and carpeting from waterborne, oilborne and soilborne elements.
How does FiberShield® work?
FiberShield® is applied under pressure at 40 psi. Once applied you can expect a dry time of approximately 3 hours (under normal humidity), and a CURE TIME of 24 - 72 hours. During this time FiberShield® works its way from the top to bottom of every fiber, coating, expanding, removing air spaces. This makes a spill or soil less likely to penetrate and stain the fibers, and therefore can be easily removed.
FiberShield® - where is it applied?
  • 1. On site - client’s home
  • 2. Off site - Our cleanroom/warehouse
Is FiberShield® safe around pets and children?
Yes, FiberShield® is a green product and is safe for pets and children. Containing no harmful additives, FiberShield® is blended in a controlled environment under strict quality control standards. All batches have retained samples which also affords the benefit of "NO" technician error, (no mixing required).
How long after application does FiberShield® begins to protect the fabric?
The protection and drying cycle starts within minutes after initial drying, increasing significantly after 24-hours, and reaches maximum stain repellency after 72 hours. Treated surfaces may be used once they are dry to the touch (normally 1 - 4 hours at normal room temperature).
Does FiberShield® block sun and UV rays?
No, though FiberShield® can help to protect your fabrics from sun and UV, it is not designed to block the suns rays or UV rays in that capacity. We recommend utilizing window tints and or curtains which can block 90% of sun and UV rays.
