At Modernistic, we like clean carpet.
That’s right, I said it. Go ahead and take a moment to absorb that declaration… Good. Now that it’s had some time to sink in, let me explain.
We don’t clean carpet because of the fabulous riches that come with being a cleaning company. We clean carpet (and upholstery, and air ducts, and tile) because it’s the best way we know how to bring delight to our customers. Having a clean home makes people happy, and keeping a clean home helps keep people happy for longer. You know what doesn’t make people happy? Spots and stains. Especially spots and stains that appear on carpet and upholstery that previously didn’t have spots and stains!
Since we’ve been in the business of keeping our customers happy since 1973, we’ve learned that the best way to protect carpet from stains is applying 3M Scotchgard protection after every professional cleaning.
What Does 3M Scotchgard Do?
3M Scotchgard protection creates a barrier on your carpet and upholstery, helping prevent liquid and soil from absorbing into the fibers. It’s an odorless, invisible application that makes spills and dirt bead up at the surface of your fabric, making it simple and quick to clean up messes.
What Does 3M Scotchgard Smell Like?
Absolutely nothing! Scotchgard is designed to be odorless, so nothing gets in the way of that “freshly-cleaned” smell.
Ok, Then What Does It Feel Like?
Again, absolutely nothing. 3M Scotchgard won’t affect the texture of your carpet or upholstery in any way (save being slightly damp when first applied). Once it dries along with your freshly-cleaned carpet, you won’t even know it’s there – until you spill something on it!
So How Do I Know It’s Working?
3M Scotchgard will make liquid bead up on the surface of the fibers, giving you more time to clean up after a spill. Also, vacuuming will remove much more dirt and soil than before, making your regular cleaning chore much easier!
How Long Does It Last?
How long 3M Scotchgard will last on your carpet or upholstery depends on a few factors – like foot traffic, usage, and cleaning schedule – but a good rule of thumb is that you should get it cleaned and reapplied every 6 months for optimal protection.
The best thing about 3M Scotchgard is what it does for the longevity of your carpet. When you compare the cost of applying protectant vs the cost of replacing your carpeting sooner than you have to.. Well, let’s just say you’re saving PLENTY of money going with Scotchgard! So the next time you get your carpets or upholstery professionally cleaned, make sure you ask about the best way to protect carpet from stains – 3M Scotchgard!
