10 Year Silk Testimony

In July of 2000, Susan K. (Seattle) had both of her sofas MicroSealed (back and pillows are 100% silk, seat decks are 100% wool). The sofas sat in the same solarium of her High-Rise downtown Seattle Condominium for over 10 years.

"I was so impressed at how our sofa's had not faded, that I called Lance again to MicroSeal our recently installed furnishings including all of the wall to wall 100% Wool carpeting"

12 Year Silk Testimony

“Twelve years ago I had my 70% silk (and the rest poly-cotton) blend sofa MicroSealed. We allowed this beautiful delicate sofa, believe it or not, to be used constantly by our children and their friends! I remember easily wiping up coffee spills during their teenage years. Not once did I need to have it professionally cleaned. Other than minimal sun fading on a few small areas, the sofa looked new even after twelve years of heavy use! After our children moved out, I did have the sofa re-upholstered to match our new decor and of course had all of the new furnishings MicroSealed. I highly recommend MicroSeal to my friends and clients"

“I had just purchased a new Ford Flex for personal and business usage. The dealership tried to sell me their treatment, but being that it wasn’t a permanent fix for spills, AND that it was slightly toxic, I did not purchase it.

I did, however, want my car protected inside, as I have young twin boys, and I knew just who to go to—T.J. at MicroSeal of Los Angeles. I called T.J. to see how soon I could get the treatment done, and he told me that it could be done right away, and that HE would be the one treating my car. I loved that. He explained that it was non-toxic, and that it would permanently seal the fabric in my car as well as provide UV sun fade protection. Wow! Within the week that the treatment was applied, I was driving my children to school. They were cranky and started fighting with each other. I overheard one say to the other that he was going to spill juice on his brother if he didn’t stop calling him names. Before I could tell them not to do that, the juice was thrown and my son was soaked. The one that had thrown it piped up that I shouldn’t be mad because the seats were protected. When I went to clean the car, I was surprised to see that the juice was sitting on the seats in droplets, much like mercury would in my hands in the old days. I blotted the juice drops with a towel, and it came right up. It was so easy. I wish I could say the same about my poor son who was stained in orange juice all day. My experience with the MicroSeal product has been nothing but positive, and I highly recommend MicroSeal's services to anyone who wants to keep their car interior looking new, or who wants to protect their home from the neverending antics of children. Thank you.”

“In our automobile interior applications, suede fabrics sun fade quickly without MicroSeal. We put swatches of a treated and untreated fabrics on our store windows and saw a big difference. Before we had MicroSeal, customers brought their cars back to us. After MicroSeal, we had no returns. Consequently, we wouldn’t sell an installation without MicroSeal.”

Moe Pilgrim, Former Owner of Superior Auto Trim in Bellevue, WA.

“Shortly after having my pride and joy (a Mercedes C-320) protected, the following occurred: My dog bled all over it (her first heat cycle)… and I spilled my coffee. Both accidents cleaned up easily!”

RENAISSANCE Festival Dance Director Puts Microseal Through
Thorough and Brutal Testing

costumes

My name is Susan Von R. I’m a performer and director of Court Dance and a seamstress for Scarborough Renaissance Festival in Waxahachie, Texas. (Website) I’ve spent 30 years recreating 16th century clothing for myself, fellow renaissance festival cast members, museums and a member of the REAL royal court of Spain, The Infanta Cristina, 1st Duchess of Palma de Mallorca (Cristina Federica Victoria Antonia de la Santísima Trinidad de Borbón y de Grecia).

Every year millions of people all across the country attend and perform at renaissance festivals wearing recreations of period 16th century clothing. These festivals require cast members to wear heavy, ground length gowns often costing thousands of dollars. These clothing recreations (costumes) must be worn at least 10 hours a day in all kinds of inclement weather from snow and rain to 105 degrees heat in the blazing Texas summer sun.

These extreme weather conditions are very hard on expensive velvets, brocades and are ruinous to fine silks, satins and chiffons. Fabric protection is an invaluable tool in the longevity of these pricey fabric art forms. I spent years looking and testing fabric treatments that would: Increase fabric natural strength, minimize staining from rain or ANY liquids, some sort of protection/ANY kind of protection from fading due to sun (a Sun Inhibitor).

I needed something to protect my costumes from rain, body sweat, little kids nasal drippings and greasy fingers prints, slopped beer and sodas, mud, mud and MORE MUD, not to mention delicate fabrics arch enemy - THE BLAZING TEXAS SUN.

For years I researched and tested different fabric protections, with very disappointing results until 2004 when I found MicroSeal. I tested MicroSeal by cutting two, 4×4 inch squares of 100% cotton, dupioni silk, silk velvet, poly/cotton blend velvet, blended brocades, metallic blends, brushed suede, and boot leather. Each 2 squares were in the colors of white, black, red, peacock blue, emerald green and yellow. MicroSeal was sprayed on half of my fabric and color samples and then I subjected all the fabric samples through what a completed costume would endure during the run of an 8 week renaissance festival. I ground mud and dirt into the samples, left them in the rain, dumped dark beer on them, dropped blood, smeared them with food grease and suntan lotion, I even sewed them to the underarms of a tee-shirt and went hiking for 6 hours in the Texas heat. After each separate abuse I used each fabrics recommended cleaning process by either machine wash/dry or dry-clean. MicroSeal had caught my attention. Then I did the ultimate test by taping all the samples to sheet of cardboard AND LEFT them on the shelf of the rear window of my car, in direct sun….for A MONTH, IN JULY……..IN TEXAS!

I was ASTONISHED by these results. The dark fabric samples which were NOT TREATED WITH MICROSEAL had completely faded to gray, the whites looked burned and yellow, and reds were now pale pink. What truly AMAZED me was the actual feel of the fabrics. Most of the untreated samples shredded at the merest touch; the delicate and metallic fabrics literally turned to dust in my hands.

The samples which WERE TREATED WITH MICROSEAL were as strong as when first purchased and showed little to no fading. I was sold on MICROSEAL.

I really love the court gowns I make and wear and I know my fellow cast members feel the same about their costumes. We’ve spent a king’s ransom on fabrics, trims, pearls and semi-precious stones and yet we subject our beloved costumes to the worst weather conditions Mother Nature produces. I will always treat my costumes with MicroSeal and after a long hot rainy day I know my gown will look great for years.

Thank you MicroSeal from the bottom of my mud soaked silk gown to the tip of my pearl crowned head.

Sincerely,

Susan Von R.

MICROSEAL CITY (Sun Fade Protection for Flags and Outdoor Banners)

Vernal City banners

Dear MicroSeal,
I just wanted to write and tell you how totally in love we at Vernal City are with your product. We have seen dramatic results in how it protects our Vernal City banners from dirt (it just cleans off so well) and Ultra Violet rays (the colors don't fade).

Vernal City maintains $140,000 worth of banners in our banner program which we rotate through the various seasons of the year in the business district. For a number of years I tried without success to convince the city to move away from using the vinyl banners (which we hated for a number of reasons) to the fabric digital print. Our banner distributors warned us over and over that we would love the fabric digital print banners when they first arrived but would not be happy with their long-term performance. This was because although the digital print is vibrant and beautiful when first made, the ultra-violet effects of the sun causes them to fade very quickly when compared with screen print vinyl, and the fabric (unlike Vinyl) catches and holds the dirt so the banners wear fast and don't clean up very well by comparison.

Both of these problems were solved once I found MicroSeal. I then was able to convince the city to purchase one seasonal set of beautiful fabric banners for the down town section of our city as a test run. We then had the banners MicroSealed before they ever went out into the elements the first time. The result was so overwhelming that today the only kind of banners Vernal City buys are the fabric digital print. The MicroSeal does such a great job of protecting them we now get all the positive qualities the fabric digital prints have to offer with none of the negative as they are out-shinning and out-lasting the vinyl banners by far. Never at any time have I found any discoloring of the fabric or other problems associated with the applying of MicroSeal on our banners. Every outcome has been positive.

Now each time someone from another city calls or talks to me wanting to know how we make the fabric banners work so well I tell them about MicroSeal and that anyone would be foolish to even think about trying them unless they were willing to protect them with MicroSeal from the start.

I'm sure that people think I sound like I am a salesman for MicroSeal but I don't care, I really believe in this product and what it can do to protect from the natural destructive forces of nature. I just tell it like it is.

Thanks MicroSeal for making a product that really does do everything you say it will.

Expo MicroSeal Test

Pettyjohnss's in North Carolina (www.rugwasher.com) decided to stick their necks out and really show everyone what MicroSeal can do!

We were so impressed by the results; which are not only a testament to MicroSeal, but also their skill as rug cleaners; that we asked if we could share them with you.

(Disclaimer: No rugs were harmed during the testing process!)

WARNING:
We do not recommend putting your rug through this much stress, however if you feel you must, we'll be happy to wash it for you!

Pre-Expo. Photo taken after Microseal Application

Pettyjohn attended a trade EXPO with the MicroSealed rug pictured above. They encouraged everyone visiting or passing their stand to leave some food or drink on the rug, resulting in the mess photographed below:

rug mess

The liquids sat on top of the rug for at least 5 minutes before wicking in and since it was all set up on a plastic sheet - the rug also sat in a pool of cherry limeade, sweet tea, red and white pasta sauce, BBQ sauce, mayonnaise, pepperoni pizza, various types of soup and squished-in brownies!

Back at their facility, they removed all of the food and rubbish and washed the rug. After washing rinsing and sanitising, the rug was then treated to a spin in their centrifuge, before grooming and drying. You can see from the photograph below that the rug shows no sign of it's ordeal, having been restored to it's fromer glory!

What you can't see is the Microseal still protecting the rug from day-to-day wear and spills etc, as it will for many more cleans to come.
