Who Likes Dirty Carpets…?
The Scotchgard™ treatment works by locking in protection from the tip of the carpet fibre to the carpet backing and keeps your carpet cleaner 2- 3 times longer than an unprotected carpet. Its protective fluorochemical barrier helps prevent soiling agents form penetrating the carpet fibres which means a cleaner, brighter carpet for you. Even loose soil and everyday carpet debris is easier to remove. Scotchgard™ will keep most everyday spills from becoming hard-to-remove stains.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Scotchgard™ Protector work?
A: Scotchgard™ branded products provide a protective treatment by surrounding each individual carpet fibre with an invisible shield, making the carpet resistant to water-based and oil-based stains, as well as soiling from everyday use.
Q: How long does the Scotchgard™ Protector last?
A: Under normal usage, Scotchgard™ Protector will provide long-lasting benefits. However, performance will diminish every time the carpet is cleaned using hot water extraction. So, 3M recommends that Scotchgard™ Protector be reapplied after every hot water extraction cleaning. Professional cleaners are best equipped to perform such after-treatment.
Q: Why doesn’t water ’bead up’ on carpet featuring Scotchgard™ Protector?
A: Not all carpet fibres show beading when liquid is spilled- this depends upon the carpet weave. However, this does not affect the stain and soil resistance of the treated carpet.
Q: Does Scotchgard™ Protector ’waterproof’ carpet?
A: No – this is not its primary objective. However, it will provide improved resistance to water-based substances.
Q: Is Scotchgard™ Protector safe for children and pets?
A: Yes – the products have been extensively tested and have been safely used in homes for over 20 years.
Q: Are competitors’ products the same as 3M Scotchgard™ branded products?
A: No. 3M is known worldwide for its technology and product innovation. Dozens of Scotchgard™ branded fabric protection products have been developed, marketed and sold for over 50 years. Scotchgard™ is used to treat natural and synthetic carpets and rugs, upholstered furniture, linens and clothing.
