One of the top questions our team gets from our customers is “does Scotchgard™ work?” or “is it really worth the extra money?”. The answer is yes to both questions and here’s why. Does Scotchgard™ work? Yes, Scotchgard™ does work to help protect your carpet against spills, stains, and liquids. Some customers believe that Scotchgard™ does not work and is not worth the extra expense. However, we’ve learned that those who believe Scotchgard™ does not work, do not have the correct expectations of what Scotchgard™ does. Scotchgard™ does not guarantee that your carpet is 100% stain-proof. Scotchgard™ does guarantee that there is an extra layer between your carpet and the stain. Scotchgard™ does work to lessen the severity or impact that the spill, stain, or liquid has on your carpet. The topical solution gives you time to get to the stain so it doesn’t sink deep into your carpets. By allowing you extra time to address the stain, the stain will have less of an opportunity to soak into the roots of the carpet and pad which is what causes a stain to become permanent. To learn more about what you should do immediately after a stain happens, check out our blog post “What is the first thing you should do when a spill happens?“. And when you clean with Woodard, we offer a Spot & Spill Guarantee with your purchase of Scotchgard™ adding to the value of the product.

To make sure Scotchgard™ is included with your cleaning, be sure to mention it when scheduling. At this time we can provide an estimated price for the application.
