Defender improves the quality and appearance of indoor environments through soil and contamination reduction.
As the most advanced, multi-function carpet protector, Defender benefits you in 5 powerful ways:
For normal stain and soil protection: Dilute 1 part Defender into 5 parts water (26oz. product per 1 gallon of water).
For problem areas where rapid soiling and/or wicking occur: Dilute 1 part Defender into 4 parts water (1 quart product into 1 gallon of water)
Apply the Defender solution following your cleaning procedure while the carpet is damp. Use a pressure sprayer equipped with a .04 Tee Jet style tip to achieve an even over-spray of protector solution to the damp carpet surface.
Use overlapping passes to assure uniformity of solution coverage. When treating problem areas, increase your solution application to match the severity of the problem that exists. Coverage for normal usage should be 1600-1800 sq. ft. per gallon of concentrate.
Technical Note: Expect cut pile carpets to be slightly stiff when completely dry following treatment. This is normal and will disappear the first time the carpet is vacuumed or groomed.
