If you choose, 3M Scotchgard ™ Protector can be applied to your freshly cleaned carpets and furniture. 3M Scotchgard ™ Protector is the premiere product in fiber protection. Nothing can surpass its performance.
Scotchgard ™ Protector will make your regular vacuuming easier and more effective, so you can keep your carpets and furniture cleaner. When a spill occurs, Scotchgard Protector will keep the spill from penetrating as quickly, giving you more time to wipe it up more thoroughly before it soaks in and becomes more difficult to remove.
These benefits keep your carpets and upholstery cleaner longer, allowing you to have professional cleaning less often, while keeping your home cleaner. Scotchgard Protector does not reduce or eliminate the need for regular, thorough vacuuming and prompt spill cleanup.
Having Scotchgard Protector applied to your freshly cleaned carpets and/or furniture will, however, extend the drying time. We are happy to leave a fan with you, at no charge, to help speed the drying. Scotchgard Protector does a wonderful job of helping you maintain your clean, healthy home.
Where did Scotchgard originally come from? Scotchgard was discovered by accident. A 3M lab technician, working to develop a liquid coolant, spilled a fluorocarbon formulation on her sneakers. Scrubbing with soap and water, alcohol and solvents did not remove the substance, which led her to realize that a product that could repel water could also offer protection from stains on fabrics. Today, Scotchgard is formulated for specific uses such as furniture, carpet, auto upholstery, shoes, leather jackets, and even on NFL footballs.
Scotchgard Carpet and Upholstery Protector is a protective coating for the fibers, which keeps soils and spills from penetrating. Scotchgard also makes your vacuuming more effective. When you vacuum you will get more out.
If a spill occurs, they keep it from penetrating the fibers, giving you more time to clean it up more thoroughly before it penetrates and becomes more difficult to remove. They also make professional cleaning more effective next time you have professional cleaning. However, they do not eliminate you need to vacuum regularly and spot clean promptly and professional clean periodically.
