The steps of scothguarding furniture and carpets

At some point we’ve all heard of scotchguarding and its benefits. The process essentially dirt and waterproofs the item. If you want to scotchguard it is important that you follow certain steps so the process goes smoothly.

The items should be cleaned and allowed to dirt. If you don’t clean the furniture or carpet when you apply the scotchguard solution you will be essentially locking in some dirt and dust. If the item isn’t properly dry the scotchguard solution won’t stick to the item as well and you will be locking in moisture into the material.

For carpets, it is recommended that you have the carpets steam cleaned. This carpet cleaning process gets deep within the carpet material and removes dirt at the base of the carpet. The carpet cleaning process also helps condition and protect the carpet pile.

Carpet cleaning is best left to a professional cleaning service. Store bought equipment doesn’t give a deep cleaning to carpets. At most it only provides light surface cleaning. In addition, the store bought machines do not have a vacuum for extraction. Your carpet can be become oversoaked and can potentially attract mould.

After professional carpet cleaning and after a proper drying period you should then apply the scotchguard or have the service done for you. Scotchguard can be expensive and you may want to consider applying to it hallways and entrances which get the most foot traffic.
