Scorch Guard Protection is an inert treatment applied directly to the fibers that make up your carpet. This treatment protects your carpet from stains and soil. Treated carpet with Scotch guard is more resistant to staining, it is also much easier to clean as the fibers of your carpet repel the materials which create the stain. From the top of your carpet to the bottom, Scotch guard delivers deep-down protection and keeps your carpet looking good longer. Scotch guard is ideal for high traffic areas such as carpet, rugs, stairways and hallways. It will not change the look or appearance of your carpet or rug. If there are heavy traffic lanes or areas on your carpet, we recommend Power Scrub for your carpet, which will help to scrub the dirt out from the carpet and provide the best look possible.
