About Scotchgard™ Fabric Protector
How does Scotchgard™ Protection work?
Scotchgard branded products are innovative carpet protection treatments developed by 3M. Applied by the carpet mill, they provide an effective protective treatment by surrounding each individual carpet fiber with an invisible shield. Scotchgard protection improves the fibers' resistance to water-based stains, as well as soiling from everyday use.
How long does the Scotchgard protection last?
Under "normal" conditions and with reasonable care, Scotchgard protection will provide long lasting benefits. However, performance will diminish somewhat over time with each hot water extraction cleaning. For optimal soil and stain protection, 3M recommends that Scotchgard protector be reapplied after every hot water extraction. 3M recommends using a reputable professional cleaner.
