Protect Your Investment
Modernistic uses 3M Scotchgard™ as a protective post-treatment for carpet and upholstery. 3M Scotchgard™ is a protective barrier that repels soil, oil, and grease by penetrating the fibers of your textiles and leaving them with a protective coat. Most carpets and some upholstery come from the manufacturer with a protective coating already applied. This wears off with traffic and use over time. With an application of 3M Scotchgard™, spills will bead up on the surface, providing you with more time to blot them up before they soak in. In our over 50 years in business, we can state without question that cleaning results are dramatically improved if the carpet or upholstery was previously treated with 3M Scotchgard™ protection.
75% of the soil in your carpet or upholstery is dry particulate (sand or dirt). These particles embed themselves in the fibers of the textiles. The particles are sharp and act like sandpaper, abrading the fibers over time. This is what creates wear patterns. Applying 3M Scotchgard™ will prolong the carpet or upholstery’s life by allowing the dry particulate to vacuum up more efficiently. In fact, one application of 3M Scotchgard™ will allow for 2-3 times more removal of dry particulates, with regular vacuuming. Removing this soil reduces the wear and tear of the carpet fibers, ultimately prolonging the appearance and life of your carpet and upholstery by more than 50%!
