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 services professional.

How long does it take the Scotchgard Protector to dry?

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 professional carpet 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.

How often should I reapply Scotchgard Protector?

Re-application is recommended annually or after deep carpet cleaning services. 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 floor cleaning due to heavy soiling, we recommend a re-application of Scotchgard Protector.

If you have BowTie perform a “freshen up” professional carpet 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.
