Guards Fabric Protector

Hi, A furniture manufacturer can apply this to a provide this to a fabric three seeter couch prior delivery for $90. Is it worth the money.

Depends on the value of the couch and how the couch is used. An alternative is to apply ScotchGuard, and reapply every 6 months. A slipcover is a better value, as this can be washed and gives some wear protection.

I would say NO. Paying $90 for fabric protection on a $550 sofa seems out of proportion. As has been mentioned, you can get some and do it yourself for a few dollars. The old fabric protection scheme is just an add-on sales technique. I think it is marginally dishonest, especially if done in a high-pressure way or if unrealistic claims are made for the service. I wonder sometimes if they don't just take your money and fail to apply the product. Also, there is a good chance that the fabric already has some fabric protector on it. I agree that if the sofa is going to see much use, I would look into a slip cover. You can get ready-made slipcovers for a sofa for around $60.

I've been told that any brand of this type of coating will only last about a year. Seems like a big waste of money to me.

Hi Ricardo,
This will just be a water proofing agent, either silicone based or water based. We sell a water based one on our site that covers 75 sq/m for around $75, so you can judge the profit element assuming you add something for the time an opperator takes to apply the finish.
You can take a look at the site to see what it does but it would be impracticle to send to the USA.

Hi Ricardo
We had a 2 seat couch (loveseat) and a Lazyboy recliner that were recovered by an upholstery shop. We had the recliner treated with that Guardsman stuff, my wife did the couch with a store brand aerosol, took 3 cans. $60.00 vs $17.00 Both lasted about 8 months before they would absorb spills rather than run off. She got a different product from an Amway Distributor that was actually cheaper and lasted much longer, over a year easily, more like a year and a half. 3 cans did the loveseat AND the recliner. After that she used Scotchguard which also only lasted about 8 months. So from then on, she would only use the Amway made stuff, Diferb? Driferb? Difarb? whatever, something that sounds like that.
I used Scotchguard on an outdoor covered glider, soaked that canopy top and in 2 years it still don't leak on drop through the fabric.
Since then I have learned that there are two types, water based and solvent based. Solvent based is the longest lasting and doesn't build up as the water based type does.
