Fabric Protection (Scotchgard)
Following our professional steam cleaning service, you may be asked if you would like fabric protection or Scotchgard. Scotchgarding is a special fabric protection treatment that is applied to upholstered furniture, carpets & rugs, curtains, automotive upholstery and more. The best time to apply Scothgard protection is immediately after the steam cleaning process. Scotchgarding locks in our expert treatment and helps prevent stains.
Our scotchgarding treatment is an optional extra to the basic service, however, we can assure you it is a worthwhile investment as it prolongs your next steam cleaning service.
In technical terms, Scotchgard is a high grade professional fabric protector incorporating fluoropolymer and a special stain block stabiliser which helps prevent soiling and staining. Our Scotchgard application is suitable for use on most carpets and textiles, subject to proper pre-testing and careful assessment from our expert team.
Scotchgard provides a protective shield that surrounds each fibre and protects it from water and oil-based stains. The Scotchgard formula prevents stains and dirt from penetrating carpet and fabric fibers, to a greater extent than non-treatment. So when accidents do happen, you have more time to clean them up due to reduced absorbency.
Scotchgard provides the following key benefits:
- Adds a protective layer which allows for blotting up spills
- Strong fabric protection repels spills for easier cleanup
- Makes vacuuming more efficient by picking up dirt more easily
- Ideal for household items like upholstery, curtains, rugs and lounges
- Dries clear and odourless
- Safe for use on delicate fabrics like wool
- Does not affect the fabric’s breathability
Whether it is a brand new rug, couch or prestige car, our fabric protection (Scotchgard) treatment helps to repel liquids and block stains without changing the look and feel of the fabric. That means you can wipe the surface clean before the mess sinks in for greater longevity of your household furnishings. This makes great sense for all households, especially for families with kids or pets, where accidents are unavoidable.
