What is Fabric Protection, Commonly Called Scotchgard? Carpet Deep Cleaning Specialists,Victoria BC


What is Fabric and Carpet Protection?

Fabric Protection is a professionally applied deep-penetrating protective finish for fabric furniture, carpets, rugs, and other fabrics.  When applied correctly Fabric Protection penetrates deep into the fiber to form a molecular “lock” inside the fiber. Fabric Protection is great because it  effectively resists soil & stains and makes cleaning MUCH more effective.

How does protector work?

Fluorochemical treatments are  designed to improve carpet and fabric fibers’ resistance to oil- and water-based stains, as well as soiling from everyday use.  It will not change the look, feel or breathability of fabrics or carpets.

How long does the protection from these products last?

Under “normal” conditions and with reasonable care, Protectors  will provide long lasting benefits. Victoria Carpet Care Cleaning Specialists  research has shown that protectors are  very durable to foot traffic. However, performance will diminish somewhat over time with each hot water extraction cleaning. For optimal soil and stain protection, Victoria Carpet Care recommends that they be reapplied after every hot water extraction.

Why doesn’t water “bead up” on some carpets treated with protector?

Some carpet fibers may not exhibit the beading characteristic typically linked to protector. This can be caused by spaces between loosely woven carpet pile. This does not affect the stain and soil resistance of the protector application. The liquid can be easily blotted up even if it does not bead up.

Does protector “waterproof” carpet?

Protector is not intended to be used as a waterproofing agent for carpet. However, it will provide improved resistance to water-based substances.

Does protector contain formaldehyde?

No, there is no formaldehyde in any products Victoria Carpet Care uses to protect your carpets.
