Permanent Protector / MicroSeal
Fabric and fiber protection that is safe enough for all
MicroSeal of Houston
Your home’s carpeting, rugs, furniture and textiles are important investments that say a lot about you and your lifestyle. You want to protect them. And you want them looking as perfect as the day you brought them into your home. We have the perfect solution.
MicroSeal of Houston is a full-service textile cleaning and sealing company exclusively licensed in our area to apply MicroSeal — a non-toxic and non-allergenic fabric protection formula for permanent stain and sun fading protection.
Your home’s expensive textiles, fabrics and fibers will all benefit from this unique product. Initially developed by researchers in the United Kingdom to imitate the natural protection scientists found in sheep’s wool, it is, quite simply, the perfect protectant.
Non Toxic – Non Allergenic – Sun Fade Resistant
MicroSeal provides fabric and fiber protection, this is key in prolonging the lifetime of your textile. The most expensive textiles are benefitting from the application of this unique product. MicroSeal dramatically increases the life of all natural and synthetic fibers. MicroSeal Permanent Fabric Protection has been used for over 30 years worldwide. Originally developed by researchers in London, England to imitate the natural protection of sheep’s wool, its unique formula requires a perfect balance of high grade ingredients along with a trained and practiced
Internationally recognized companies have unsuccessfully thrown millions of dollars and decades of research into an effort to produce a fabric protection that is effective and yet is not hazardous to the environment. Today, the MicroSeal secret formula is created in a state of the art, carbon-free, USA facility.
Recognized Worldwide As The Best
The MicroSeal secret formula was originally developed many years ago by researchers in London, England to imitate the natural protection of sheep’s wool. Just like Coca-Cola, a deliberate decision was made to keep the formula a trade secret rather than file a patent that could be partially copied or obtained upon its expiration. This unique formula requires a perfect blend and balance of high grade raw ingredients combined with a trained and practiced manufacturing process that would be nearly impossible to reverse engineer.
MicroSeal is a safe product for you family, home and environment. It has been recognized by the EPA as a safe carrier. The non-toxic and non-allergenic formula is safe for any home, but it is also biodegradable and environmentally friendly. MicroSeal is waterless, therefore cannot shrink or discolor surfaces. It actually helps strengthen fibers while remaining odorless and colorless and can be applied to soiled fabrics, as the formula will not lock in dirt.
Resists Wear and Abrasion
Treated fibers are up to 60% more resistant to wear and abrasion, as the soil must wear off the protection before causing wear on the fibers. Similarly, fibers would have to wear off the protective MicroSeal finish before they can wear on each other. This “wear resistance” promotes longer fabric life and less frequent replacement.
The MicroSeal formula can be used on virtually every type of fibrous material including wool, cotton, nylon, polyester blends, silk, natural suede, synthetic suede and even smooth finished leather. The MicroSeal formula is not effective on vinyl.
Resists Soiling and Staining
With the protection provided by MicroSeal, soil remains on the fiber surface. This allows for easier, faster and more efficient cleaning thus reducing labor and cleaning costs. MicroSeal’s also prevents sun fading (by nearly 100% on many fabrics), mildew, static electricity, smoke density and flame spread.
MicroSeal was specifically and expressly designed in England many years ago to permanently replenish the natural protective agent that a sheep produces for its own coat. In addition to wear and stain protection, MicroSeal provides substantial sun fade resistance for the wool.
Without MicroSeal soil is naturally absorbed into the center of the wool fiber, hiding the dirt from the naked eye. Often consumers don’t realize their rug is dirty because they can’t see it. Unlike a typical fabric protector that only “coats” the fiber and then breaks up easily, MicroSeal penetrates the wool fiber to its inner cortex and protects it from the inside out. Not only from permanent stains and wear, but also from sun fade damage.
The Bead Test Comparison
A simple bead test of a coater solution (fluorochems or PTFE Resin) vs. MicroSeal (a penetrator) will sometimes result in the “apparent superiority of the coater.” This is because the coater will cover more of the space between the fibers while MicroSeal will penetrate and seal the individual fibers. Further testing simulating wear (manipulating the fabric, rubbing it, cleaning it, etc.) will result in the coater quickly breaking up and permanent stains on the fibers occurring thereafter. Even ordinary dirt can be difficult to vacuum because the broken coater material “hangs on” to the dirt.
The MicroSeal will not break up, wear off, or clean off and will continue to protect the fibers from permanent stains and sun fading for many years.
Is MicroSeal safe for my home
Yes. MicroSeal is EPA-rated safe, non-toxic and non-allergenic. In fact, MicroSeal has even earned the EPA’s coveted Design for the Environment label, which according to the EPA, “helps consumers identify products that perform well, that are cost-effective and are safer for the environment.” And if that isn’t enough MicroSeal is also California VOC compliant, which means MicroSeal adheres to the nation’s most stringent safety standards.
How does MicroSeal work?
Instead of coating the surface of a fabric or fiber, like all other stain protectants, MicroSeal actually penetrates to protect the fabric or fiber from within. In fact, MicroSeal was engineered to mimic the natural protection that wool possesses before it is sheered from the animal. And MicroSeal works in much the same way. It is difficult to imagine something like wine permanently staining an animal’s coat. This is because the fur is protected from within by oils. MicroSeal actually offers these same properties to virtually all fabrics and fibers. And because MicroSeal does not coat the surface of the fabric or fiber, it cannot be washed away by regular cleanings.
Will MicroSeal change the way my fabric or fiber smells, feels, or looks?
No. After MicroSeal dries and cures there is no odor, and even vibrantly-colored silks look and feel exactly the way they did before MicroSeal application.
Can MicroSeal be applied to heirloom fabrics and fibers?
Yes. MicroSeal can be applied to all of your prized heirloom fabrics and fibers. This is because MicroSeal does not “seal in” stains or dirt. Application of MicroSeal will only extend the lifespan, benefit cleaning and prevent future staining of all of your heirloom fabrics and fibers.
