Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the questions we are generally asked about Scotchgard Protector. If you have additional ones, please ask a BowTie Carpet Cleaning professional.

Scotchgard Protector is perfect for carpets in your home, office, and car.

Yes, carpets require reapplication of stain protection after each cleaning as indicated in the carpet's warranty.

Yes, it is safe for use on NON-WHITE wool carpet and rugs.

On a dry day, the carpets will dry overnight. Light traffic while drying is tolerable, but it's best to avoid any traffic until completely dry.

During the cleaning process, BowTie uses fans designed to dry the carpet, which significantly reduces drying time. Ventilation will reduce drying time when temperatures are near 70°F and humidity is at or below 50%. When humidity is high, air conditioning can reduce drying time.

Re-application is recommended annually or after deep-cleaning. Scotchgard Protector does, however, wear away with abrasive soiling which is more prevalent in the open areas of your carpet. When your carpet requires a vigorous cleaning due to heavy soiling, we recommend a re-application of Scotchgard Protector.

If you have BowTie perform a "freshen up" cleaning, approximately six months after a deep extraction cleaning, the choice to re-apply the Scotchgard Protector would depend upon the degree of soiling and amount of traffic wear.
