Green sparkly slime, chocolate pudding and a wet dog. Can Fiber-Seal® tackle the aftermath of a day in the life of my wild five and three-year-old boys and naughty cockapoo? Their antics regularly remind me that at this stage in my life, I cannot have nice things. But I do need my current things to look presentable. As I tidy up for holiday season hosting, I need to vanquish my stains and prepare for the new ones that will inevitably come from my “the more the merrier” style of entertaining.
Enter Fiber-Seal. For over 50 years, Fiber-Seal Services helps families keep soft surfaces, like carpets, upholstery and window treatments, stain free. Its most popular products are Greenguard Gold certified, meaning they have less impact on human health by reducing chemical exposure and improving indoor air quality. As Fiber-Seal puts it, their treatments “make your materials less absorbent so that spots and spills can blot away,” maintaining a clean, healthy environment for family and guests.
Before I bust out the red wine and permanent markers, I consulted my community of Scarsdale mom friends for real talk on Fiber-Seal. True or false, Fiber-Seal can keep gunk off my junk? Or more importantly, my white living room couches?
Several years ago, the Benedek family moved from Los Angeles to Scarsdale with their twin baby boys in tow. Fearful that New York winter grime and two toddlers would destroy their West Coast California Cool aesthetic, the Benedeks called Fiber-Seal to treat their white and neutral-toned furnishings. Years after their cross-country move, the Benedeks boast that their whites are still white, allowing them to parent their now four-year-old busy boys without anxiety and entertain with confidence.
Success stories like the Benedeks’ make Fiber-Seal a secret weapon in the interior designer’s toolkit. Elissa Grayer, founder of Elissa Grayer Design, recommends Fiber-Seal to all of her high-end clients as soon as the soft surfaces arrive in a home. Home designers know that accidents happen. When they do, clients must replace a carpet, reupholster a chair or buy a new sofa, resulting in more expense and material waste. Fiber-Seal gives clients the guts to live in their beautifully designed spaces. She recalls that “one client was having a big party, and thought she was going to have to roll up the carpet to protect it. Fiber Seal gave her the confidence to leave the carpets in place so all of the guests could admire the beautiful room!” Fiber-Seal’s after care solutions demonstrate its commitment to extending the life of your furnishings. Once Fiber-Seal cleans and protects your home, the Fiber-Seal team provides you with a Spot Cleaning Kit and a complimentary follow up service so your fine furnishings stay spot free.
For fast-paced young families like mine, Fiber-Seal knows that every room must be performance grade. Their safe stain solutions and exemplary customer service keep your home looking fancy and fresh all year round, but especially during the holiday season when indoor entertaining and food splatter reach its annual peak. To support effortless entertaining and preserve beautiful interior decor, Fiber-Seal offers new customers 10% off services over $500 (designer referrals not included). And I am here for that.
