3M Scotchgard Fabric Protector is a product of the 3M™ Company. It is used to treat office carpet and furniture coverings to repel stains and keep the material clean over a longer period of time. It is applied over wet surfaces. Application of 3M Scotchgard™ after cleaning is applied to protect from the carpet from stains and excessive soiling. Stoll Rug & Furniture Cleaners uses only 3M Scotchgard™ to treat carpets and furniture fabrics.

Commercial Scotchgard™ Applications

Office carpets, furniture, rugs, upholstery, branded mats, and more can all be treated and protected with Scotchgard™ Protector Advanced Repel Technology. Treated items are more resistant to staining and soiling over time and remain easier to clean. This is because Scotchgard™ creates an “invisible shield,” that acts as a barrier between your office furniture and the outside world. Scotchgard™ also provides “deep-down” protection, increasing your carpets and upholstery’s stain resistance and allowing them to look cleaner, fresher and brighter, longer.

Frequently Asked Scotchgard™ Questions

How Can I Spot A Rip-Off?

Unfortunately it is common to find even professional cleaning cleaning companies claiming to use Scotchgard™ that use a different product instead. The information below will help you protect yourself and spot rip offs easier.

Sometimes a company will advertise a product with a name similar to “3M Scotchgard™,” but the spelling of the name will be slightly different; such as Scotchguard or Scotch Guard. This is usually an inferior product with a lesser cost to the company and ultimately at the expense of the client. We only use authentic 3M Scotchgard™ on our customer’s carpets and furniture.

Another common ripoff technique is intentional improper mixing of the product. Scotchgard™ requires a specific ratio of water to cleaner to be effective for the intended purpose for which it is being applied. If you notice staining soon after application, this is often an indication of incorrect mixture or application.

One test to determine proper application is to wait for the rug/fabric to dry, then apply a small amount of water to the treated rug/fabric. If the water beads up on the tips of the fibers, the 3M Scotchgard™ is doing its job. If it soaks in rapidly, the material was probably improperly treated by the cleaner. Please contact Stoll Rug & Furniture Cleaners today if you have any questions.

Does Scotchgard™ Leave Odors or Films?

Scotchgard™ has a light floral fragrance when applied and does not have a harsh chemical smell. The product dries clear and odorless.

Is Scotchgard™ Safe Around the Office Mascot?

Once the product is dry, it is safe for children and pets. Products comply with all applicable laws and regulations and are safe for their intended use.
