The Shaw Floors R2X stain and soil resistence system has proven to be the premier stain and soil treatment within the carpet industry. This patented system offers a variety of benefits, the first being its protection against wicking by providing total fiber coverage from the top to the bottom of the yarn. Another benefit is that it is proven to have continued protection even after a professional cleaning, which can ruin the effectiveness of stain treatments. One other benefit of this system was its ability to offer one of the most consistent odor reducing benefits on the market. Overall carpets treated with the R2X system offer greater carpet protection against household spills and soils while providing easier cleaning.
