Fiber Protection

Fiber ProTector® is the most technically advanced and effective fiber protectfpaion system available.

We are the regional applicators of the world’s most advanced environmentally safe fiber protector for fine rugs and fabrics. Our product is designed to help keep fibers clean and stain free. This treatment will help to maintain
 a textile’s original appearance while extending it’s service life cycle. It has a long residual effect and is completely harmless to humans, animals and the environment. Fiber ProTector® has, for years, been the preferred anti-soil and stain treatment for numerous hotels, cruise ships, aircraft manufacturers, public transportation, theaters, corporate offices and custom made manufacturers of carpet and fabrics. Fiber ProTector® forms an invisible shield around textile fibers providing an effective barrier against all kinds of organic matter, fluids, dust and debris that on unprotected textiles would result in permanent stains. Fiber ProTector® adds UV protection, it is bacteriostatic, reduces static electricity, inhibits the growth of mold and mildew and does not affect surface texture or breath-ability.

Home Owners

Home owners use Fiber ProTector® for wall-to-wall carpet, cloth and leather upholstery and chairs, curtains and draperies, bed linen and blankets, rugs (including Oriental, Persian and Navajo).

Interior Designers

Interior Designers use Fiber ProTector® for hotels and restaurants, hospitals and institutions, shops and office environments, ships, planes, trains and buses, theatres and concert venues.


Fiber ProTector® products are used and approved for hospitals, retirement homes, doctors’ practices, hotels and exclusive restaurants, assisted living facilities, public areas, and conference halls.

Professional Care System

Through Fiber ProTector Carpet protection and Fiber ProTector Textile protection, we have developed a revolutionary system that encapsulates every fiber in the fabric. This prevents dirt and fluids from penetrating and sticking to the fabric.

Unlike most fabric protection services, Connoisseur does not farm out our spot cleaning service, rather we do all the servicing to protected pieces ourselves. Having been cleaning fine upholstery for 30 years, it is very rare come across a spot or stain we cannot improve.

All carpets and upholstery protected when new or not, will require maintenance. Fiber ProTector treatments will not keep spills and dirt from landing on a carpet or chair; it simply provides easy stain removal and reduced intervals of deep cleaning; thereby achieving considerable savings in cleaning and replacement costs. The net effect is that the original appearance can be maintained by routine cleaning.

Fiber ProTector will not affect the natural properties of textiles either in appearance or by feel. Unlike competitive Silicon based products, Fiber ProtecTor does not leave a film behind to attract soil.
