What We Do.

We protect and clean your home furnishings, carpets and draperies, while using eco and ozone friendly, hypoallergenic elements derived from pure organic compounds. We kill the germs, wash out the soil, rinse out the spill, and leave the item clean.

MWI’s cleaning system is the most comprehensive fabric and carpet maintenance program in the industry. What makes us different is that all of our products are biodegradable and Green Seal Certified. Our protection products help to repel liquids,soil and help block UV rays that fade color and drastically improve cleaning better than any other protector.

Fiber-Shield protectors can be applied to all types of soft surfaces: fabric and leather upholstery, rugs, carpeting, window treatments, wallcoverings, etc, without changing texture or appearance. Fiber-Shield protection can be applied to new furnishings and freshly cleaned ones as well.
