Founded in 1971 by Steve Nelson
Fiber-Seal is much more than just a fabric protection company. In 1971, consumers were just beginning to embrace the concept of fabric protection. It was an innovative product that could be applied to fabrics, carpeting, and rugs, which would repel liquids and keep fibers cleaner longer—without changing the color or texture! Other protective fabric treatments were available in the marketplace at that time; however, problems were not always prevented, and stains were not as easily removed as expected. In other words, consumers were left to fend for themselves whenever stains or soils occurred. No one was there to help.
Then, our founder, Steve Nelson, took one giant step beyond fabric protection. He saw a need for a specialized company and added local Service Centers as a more convenient way to get our great stain-resistant products into client homes and offices. In addition, having local Service Centers ensured that for more difficult problems or spotting emergencies, help was just a phone call away. In an unprecedented move, he promised complimentary service calls for any spots or spills the client could not remove during the service commitment. Even today, that concept remains a part of our service policy!
