A common question we get asked after we’ve cleaned a carpet for customers, is it worth having a stain protector applied to the carpets?
The most common stain protector known is Scotchgard. This is a brand name, but there are other quality brand available to professional cleaning companies.
We always recommend that you have stain protection applied after cleaning, and even to new carpets which is really beneficial. But stain protector is not armour plating. What it does do, it gives you more time. It helps make spots and stains easier to remove from the carpets. It also prolongs the life of the carpets, reducing abrasion from soiling and foot traffic.
So yes, it is worth having stain protection applied to your carpets.
