Believe it or not Scotchgard can be your best defense when it comes to protecting carpets, rugs and upholstered furniture . Read on to learn the benefits of Scotchgard along with an easy way to make sure you are getting what you are paying for.
4 Reasons To Use Scotchgard
1. Scotchgard is a fluorochemical that protects your carpet and upholstery from both spills and dirt. Just like a coat of wax on your car it provides a protective coating on your carpets and upholstery. Most people don’t realize the benefits of carpet protector in the case of drink spills. If applied correctly it will prevent liquids from penetrating the fibers. If you spill coffee, juice, soda, wine, etc. on your carpets the spill will bead up on the surface instead of soaking in. Many times you can take a paper towel and soak up the spill.
2. Another important and often less advertised benefit of carpet protector is in the protection from household dirt. Dirt is abrasive and can actually scratch the surface of carpet fibers leaving a dingy or faded appearance. Scotchgard helps prevent dirt particles from doing any long-term damage.
3. Although carpet protector does need to be reapplied every six to eighteen months (depending on traffic), you can be rest assured that carpet protector plus a thorough, consistent vacuuming regimen will add years to the life and beauty of your carpets. This can save you hundreds to thousands of dollars over the lifetime of a carpet.
4. Be aware that unethical carpet cleaners will dilute the Scotchgard to a point that it is ineffective. There are many ways to incorrectly apply protectant. Make sure the carpet cleaning company you are working with has been certified and has a reputation of high standards.
