Carpet protectors are found in various forms. Some are in liquid form while other are in a thin, clear sheet which is spread over the carpet and tighten so as to look like there is nothing that has been added on top of the carpet. They can be used both at home as well as in the offices. In the office set-up, there are specific carpet protectors that are spread on the surface area where the chair revolves so as to prevent the movable chair from damaging the carpet.
They are made from different materials such as vinyl, plastic, rubber, adhesives among others. These sheet-like carpet protectors are spread over the surface of the actual carpet to cover the whole surface of that particular carpet.

These types of carpet protectors prolong the lifespan of the carpet and also reduce cost of cleaning the carpet from time to time.
The other type of carpet protector is one which comes in liquid form. This liquid is made of chemical compounds that add extra stain resistance to the carpet. In other words, it makes the carpet to repel any kind of dirt and spillage before they get into the fibers of the carpet and form a stain. By doing this, it enables the dirt to stick at the bottom of the shoes or feet rather than being absorbed into the carpet.

Sheet-like protectors can be used for as long as they start to wear out. It can take several months depending on how you are taking care of it. When using liquid carpet protector, the amount that you will need depends on very many factors such as the environment, the type of the carpet as different carpets need varied amounts of the protector depending on the size and again, the amount needed will also depend on the amount of use that the carpet itself gets.
