StainSafe® 20 Year Warranty
Balta carpets with the 20 Year Stain Warranty will resist stains by foods and beverage for a period of twenty (20) years when recommended carpet care and cleaning procedures are used. Regular carpet care and routine maintenance is essential to maintain your warranty coverage. It is important that you give immediate attention to any accidental spillages using clean water and a proprietary carpet cleaner. Over time, normal foot traffic and general soiling of your carpet will cause a change in any carpet's appearance. Hot water extraction either alone or in combination with cleaning is required to maintain your Balta warranty. This service must be performed by a professional carpet cleaning technician at least once every 24 months to retain your receipts for proof of maintenance service should a warranty claim arise. Balta carpets with the 20 Year Stain Warranty are manufactured from high performance polypropylene under the exclusive ‘Stainsafe®’ brand name. These carpets are inherently anti-static and do not absorb moisture.
