Facts – Other Guys vs. MicroSeal Permanency

Facts from the Industry:
“Removal of the Fluorochemical treatment will occur because of abrasion. It is recommended it be replenished after cleaning.” 

Carpet Cleaning Technician; An IICRC training manual.

“Note: If your carpet is protected by our PermaShield topical stain and soil resistance treatment it will help your carpet resist many wet, dry and oil-based soils. Although these treatments typically withstand up to three deep cleaning cycles, re-application of similar approved topical stain resistance treatment after each professional carpet cleaning will help keep your carpet looking newer longer and make it easier to clean.”

Q # 3, How often should protectors be applied?
A # 3, Since the biggest enemy of the protectors is abrasion from traffic, and traffic varies with each situation, the general recommendation for re-application is after each cleaning. The same conditions that led to the cleaning probably have led to the need to refresh the carpet protection.

Q  How long does Scotchguard Protector last?
A  Under “normal” conditions and with reasonable care, Scotchguard Protector will provide long lasting benefits. However, performance will diminish somewhat over time with each hot water extraction cleaning. For optimal soil and stain protection, 3M recommends that Scotchguard Protector be reapplied after every hot water extraction, plus using a reputable professional cleaner.
