Private Jet Case Study

Project Details

The Challenge


A private jet company wanted the current carpets of their Bombardier Global 5000 to be protected with FiberProtector protection. Since the carpets have been used for some time, the usual procedure is to do an extraction of the carpet before applying the protection, however, the carpet was mainly made up of silk and would not be able to be extracted due to the use of water.

The Solution


After the carpets were removed from the private jet, vacuuming and protection of the fabrics could start.

  1. Vacuum cleaning - since the carpet was mainly made up of silk, extraction of the carpet was out of the question. A thorough vacuuming of the carpet was done instead to prevent any damage or change in the carpet texture and color. Although vacuuming does not replace an extraction, it is still able to liven up the carpet and remove grain and gravel found at the base of the fibers when done thoroughly.
  2. Protection - the protection of the carpet was performed using a Solvent Based product instead of a Water Based. This was again because of the type of farbic we were dealing with (silk).

The Result


Apart from two stains that we were unable to remove before the protection process, the carpet did liven up as a result of the complete fiber protection and spills can now be removed without staining. The carpet was successfully re-installed into the Bombardier Global 5000 and the owners were very happy with the result.
