Has anyone had this product applied to their carpets for stains?

We have a 100% wool striped Karastan rug in our basement that I would like to protect from stains. The Microseal would be a bit too pricey considering the size of this rug. The application company suggested this Maxim product, which works differently and is half the cost of the Microseal. I'm not affiliated with any of these products, I'm just looking for comments as to the efficacy of it and, most importantly, the safety of it in terms of not making colors run, etc. Thanks

When I was looking into Microseal I read everything I could about the various products, including Scotchguard w/ teflon, Maxim, and Ultraseal. I found an interesting conversation among people who clean and treat carpet for a living (their online forum) below.

I can't be any help but I can tell you that a wool Karastan wears like iron. You will love it!
