  • Creates an invisible barrier between fabric and stains

Carpet Professionals Must Be Certified To Apply Scotchgard – Accept No Imitations

There are other carpet protection products on the market and many carpet cleaning companies will products that don’t delivery the results we’ve seen from protecting furniture with Scotchgard. But it’s not just about choosing the right product for the job. Application can be complex depending on the material and environmental conditions. The product needs to be diluted correctly and yet be applied in effective amounts to provide the right coverage. Additionally, carpets must be groomed immediately after application to ensure optimal coverage and improve drying times. As certified professional Scotchgard applicators in Ocean County and Monmouth County, New Jersey, we are well versed in exactly how to obtain the best results for your carpet, rugs and upholstery investment.

How does Scotchgard make carpet and upholstery stain resistant?

This powerful fabric protector creates an invisible shield within the carpet or upholstery fibers to provide a deep down protection from spills, spots, and everyday soiling.  

Though carpet is typically treated with carpet protection when it’s being made, that protection eventually weakens. It’s the inevitable outcome of daily foot traffic, vacuuming, and soil and dirt.

This product doesn’t adhere to the fibers but instead penetrates and is absorbed into each individual fiber, from top to bottom creating a truly stain resistant carpet, rug or piece of furniture.  

Once dry, this coating prevents spills from penetrating the fibers, giving you more time to remove the spill before it becomes a permanent stain.  It makes carpet and upholstery easier to clean, allowing you to wipe them up faster and more thoroughly.  It also helps reduce sun fading and molding.

What are the benefits of using Scotchgard™?

According to 3M™, Scotchgard™ uses a unique, patented one-step co-exhaustion application process that treats the entire surface — from the tips of the fiber all the way to the backing — to deliver superb repellant performance. Carpets and furniture treated with Scotchgard™ Protector Advanced Repel Technology are more resistant to staining and soiling and easier to clean.

3M Scotchgard™ creates an invisible shield, protecting your carpet and furniture against dirt and soil. This allows your vacuum to pick that dirt and soil up easier during regular cleanings.

3M Scotchgard™ also provides deep-down protection, increasing your carpets and furniture’s stain resistance and allowing them to look cleaner, fresher and brighter, longer.

Commercial Scotchgard™ Applications

Office carpets, furniture, rugs, upholstery, branded mats, and more can all be treated and protected with Scotchgard™ Protector Advanced Repel Technology. Treated items are more resistant to staining and soiling over time and remain easier to clean. This is because Scotchgard™ acts as a barrier between your office furniture and everything else, shielding it from the outside world. 

6 Reasons You Should Have Stain Resistant Carpet Protection

Reduces Permanent Stains

A great looking carpet can be ruined by an ugly spot. Unprotected carpet does not repel spillage as well as protected carpet.  Red wine or hot liquids will soak into unprotected carpet almost immediately. When the protector is present it becomes hydrophobic and suspends the liquid which discourages the stain from setting in the fibers. Protector buys you time, so you can easily remove the stain. Being able to remove spots and spills more effectively prevents permanent staining.

Helps Save Your Traffic Areas

Traffic area soil is very abrasive and cuts through carpet yarns like sand paper. Another great advantage of protector is that it allows abrasive soil to be easily removed from the carpets, and this prevents the carpet fibers from being destroyed. Vacuuming the carpet and releasing the soils from the carpet fibers will help but by applying protector, you will dramatically increase the life of your carpet. Less dirt in the carpet = Less damage to the fibers.

Make Spots Easier To Remove

The easier a spot is to remove, the less cleaning solution you will have to use, the less agitation you must use, and less time it will take. With help from our rug cleaning company in Ocean County and Monmouth County, New Jersey, dirt will be easier to vacuum after it has undergone Scotchgard protection. Many spots can be easily removed with just water. Since Scotchgard repels liquids, stains are removed much easier. Spills are blotted up in seconds!

Stay Clean Longer

Once our technicians apply Scotchgard to your carpet or upholstery, your carpet will become easier to vacuum, and it will be stain-resistant. It also reduces static electricity. Carpet fibers are naturally resistant to dry soil and water-based stains, but carpet protection helps to improve that resistance.

The very best time to get Scotchgard protection is after a cleaning done by our carpet cleaning specialists. This application will keep your carpet, rug, or upholstery clean for far longer.

Makes Your Next Cleaning More Effective

Having carpet protector applied to your carpet will enhance your next cleaning. More soil will be removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned.

Helps Avoid Service Calls

We would be happy for you to call on us to handle any spot or spill, but Scotchgard carpet protector helps you remove spots that would be set and problematic in unprotected carpet. You may be able to save a minimum service charge by removing the stain yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does It Take To Dry?

If it is colder or more humid, your surfaces will likely take longer to dry. Ventilating the area by opening windows or using a fan will help Scotchgard™ dry faster. The typical drying time for normal applications in between coats is 2 – 4 hours.

How long does a professional Scotchgard treatment last? 

Over time, the protective layer formed by a Scotchgard application is bound to wear down. As a result, 3M recommends that a Scotchgard-protected surface with regular use and wear, carpets, rugs and furniture should be professionally treated with Scotchgard every year for best protection.

Is there a difference between DIY Scotchgard application and professional Scotchgard application?

Scotchgard should be applied after professional carpet cleaning after hot water extraction carpet cleaning. The DIY product offers less protection. The surface tension created by the product which causes liquid to bubble up and stay on the surface provides stronger results from the professional application.
