Frequently Asked Questions
How does Scotchgard Protector(TM) work?
Scotchgard products are flurochemical treatments developed by 3M. They provide an effective protective treatment by surrounding each individual fibre with an invisible shield. Scotchgard Protector improves the fibres resistance to oil and water-based stains, as well as soiling from everyday use.
How long does the protection from Scotchgard products last?
Under “normal” conditions and with reasonable care, Scotchgard Protector will provide long lasting benefits. 3M research has shown that Scotchgard carpet protector is very durable to foot traffic. However, performance will diminish somewhat over time and with each hot water extraction cleaning. Scotchgard Protector should be reapplied by after the second hot water extraction clean. Re-applying after every cleaning can only enhance the protective properties of the treatment.
Does water always bead up on Scotchgard treated products?
Some carpet fibres and some upholstery fabrics may not exhibit the beading characteristic typically linked to Scotchgard Protector. In the case of carpets this can be caused by spaces between loosely woven carpet pile. With upholstery certain fabrics with a polyester content may not exhibit the beading up effect. This does not affect the stain and soil resistance of the Scotchgard protector application. The liquid can easily be blotted up even if it does not bead up.
Does Scotchgard Protector “waterproof” carpets?
Scotchgard Protector is not intended to be used a waterproofing agent for carpet. However, it will provide improved resistance to water based substances.
Is Scotchgard Protector safe for children and pets?
Yes, all Scotchgard Protector products go through extensive testing and can be safely used in homes.
Does Scotchgard Protector have an odour?
Scotchgard Protector is odourless. Once applied to furnishings it does not release chemicals into the air. However, other components in newly manufactured furnishings may cause an odour for a short time. Proper ventilation will minimise this.
How should carpet treated with Scotchgard Protector be cleaned?
Regular vacuuming is essential. Scotchgard(TM) Protector helps keep dry soil and oily residues from sticking to the carpet fibres. This makes routine vacuuming more efficient and delays the need for a general hot water extraction cleaning. 3M recommends professional hot water extraction cleaning and Scotchgard reapplication after 2 hot water extraction cleans.
