Why Invest in Scotchgard? While most modern carpet initially includes stain-resistant protection applied during manufacturing, traffic and vacuuming reduce the effectiveness of this protection over time. Regular applications of Scotchgard™ Protector for your Carpet, Upholstery and Area Rugs is an essential protective measure, extending the life and maintaining original beauty over time. Scotchgard keeps your home cleaner, fresher, brighter, longer because it:
Improves vacuuming. Vacuuming is actually more effective with Scotchgard protector. Dirt is more easily picked up, and fewer passes are required with the vacuum because carpet fibers actually resist soiling.
Simplifies spill cleanup. Scotchgard™ protector helps keep spills from becoming hard-to-remove spots or stains. It repels liquids, so spills can be blotted up quickly and easily. Stains release more easily when carpet and upholstery is cleaned and it is effective protection against fruit drinks, soft drinks and frozen fruit treats.
When should Scotchgard be applied? The best time to apply Scotchgard™ protector is right after cleaning. Pro Clean technicians can do it for you right after the cleaning process is complete. Regular vacuuming and prompt cleanup of spills will help maintain the bright, freshly cleaned look for a long time.
Why Should I Apply Scotchgard Protection?
Scotchgard to your carpet, upholstery or rugs is very much like waxing a car after cleaning. Car wax creates a protective barrier on a car’s finish that resists acid rain damage, soiling and road abrasion. Just like wax, Scotchgard is a protective barrier for carpet fibers that resists staining and abrasion from soil and foot traffic.
Scotchgard should be applied after every cleaning because it…
• Helps protect carpet from both oil and water based stains
• Provides stain resistance for most common household spills
• Helps carpet fibers resist soiling and abrasion
• Helps spills blot up before they become stains
• Helps stains release more easily when carpet and upholstery is professionally cleaned
• Effective against fruit drinks, soft drinks and frozen fruit treats
– this one was a special clear dye designed to fill in any open areas of fiber that the colored dye did not quite penetrate. That colorless dye is what makes your carpeting Stain Resistant.
Just before your carpet left the mill it was treated once more, this time with a protector like Scotchgard – your carpet’s final line of defense. The only problem with the carpet mill’s protection is that after time it wears away. That’s where a professional application of Scotchgard saves the day.
Why carpets “ugly” out before they wear out?
The average carpet is replaced every twelve years even though it begins to show signs of poor care within only five years. The Industry refers to this as “Uglying Out vs. Wearing Out.” This condition typically hits heavy use areas called the traffic lanes first, causing carpet in these areasto look dull and dirty. Today’s lighter carpets need professional care to keep them looking great until they truly wear out. Over the course of time, soils will be trapped in between carpet fibers. To the naked eye dirt may look smooth, but under a microscope most soil shapes are sharp, jagged edges. These soils act like tiny saws, cutting into the protector and exposing the delicate fibers. With scratched and cut surfaces, spills and soils can penetrate deep into the heart of your carpet fiber and cause your carpet to “ugly” out before it “wears” out.
New carpet from the mill arrives shielded with a carpet protector like Scotchgard. By reinforcing your carpet’s original factory protectant with Scotchgard, carpet spills are easier to remove, vacuuming is easier, and your carpet will look better for far longer than they would with the original protectant alone.
Regular professional cleaning, every 6-18 months depending on use, and reapplication of Scotchgard fortifies your carpet’s primary line of defense, efficiently resisting soil, liquid and oil-based spills, while protecting fibers from damaging fiber abrasion.
