Scotchgarding Carpet

Protecting Your Carpet

Whether you’ve bought a new carpet or you want to ensure your existing carpet lasts for as long as possible, Scotchgarding your carpets will protect them from stains and soiling.

What Is Scotchgard?

Scotchgard is an environmentally, child and pet friendly chemical coating applied to the carpet either at the mill or in your home. It coats the fibres of the carpet, making the surface of the fibres more-or-less non-stick, and therefore less absorbent.

It allows dirt, liquid and oil to be more easily cleaned up, as they are far less likely to penetrate the fibres of the carpet.

  • Child and Pet Friendly
  • Can be applied pre-delivery or at your home
  • Carpets fibres are made more resistant to staining
  • Makes spillages easier to clean up

Does It Work?

The simple answer is yes it does work. Scotchgard, applied onto newly laid carpet, has been proven to significantly increase the life and stain resistance of your carpet.

However, please don’t expect miracles. There are limitations. Liquids such as red wine, if left, will stain. We would advise that you put together a rudimentary stain spot kit to tackle spills immediately. We also recommend regular vacuuming.

Is Scotchgard Worth It?

Absolutely. In fact, at James for Carpets Ltd, we believe that it is an integral part of carpet care, and have therefore integrated Scotchgarding into our 9-step deep cleaning process.

This restores any previous protection and will help improve the durability and resilience of the carpet.

Scotchgarding new carpets is the best way to keep them looking and feeling their best. Our fitters are fully trained and experienced in applying Scotchgard.

Do I Need It?

Some carpets are pre-coated with carpet protection, whilst others have a stain resistance built into them, and others still have no protection at all. This is something we would discuss with you during our Mobile Carpet Showroom consultation.

Constant use, children, pets, visitors, accidents, and even cleaning affects the condition of your carpet and the effectiveness of the protective coating.

We would recommend that Scotchgard is re-applied regularly to restore its protective properties. This would be particularly effective after a deep clean, which is why we include it as part of our 9-step deep clean service.

What our Customers think...

"Both rooms look fantastic. The work was completed quickly, efficiently and with almost no disruption to us at all. James was also happy to make good an edge of carpet left raw and fraying by another tradesman at no extra cost to us. We were informed about times of fitting before hand and given exact times on the day. A company which has its customer service exactly right!"

Customer in Horsham

"Very professional and helpful with choosing the right carpet. Great range and quality of products! Courteous and polite fitter. Did a great job! Very good service! Would definitely use again."

Customer in Horsham

"A first class service from choosing the carpet through to fitting. Exceptional attention to detail and very careful in and around the house taking pride in getting the job well done. A professional turnkey service with no need for us to tidy up afterwards. Will definitely be seeing James and his friendly team again in the new year. Definitely recommended."

Customer in Petworth

"Excellent personal service from being able to choose samples at home. The two fitters, Jack and Lewis could not have been more polite."

Customer in Southwater

"Very pleased with the new carpet fitting. All the work done was to a high standard, James was very courteous and was happy to explain what he was doing when work got underway. They also cleared up any mess that was made during the fitting of the carpet in the hall and we would definitely contact him in the future for any similar work."

Customer in Horsham

"Excellent work, on time, tidy and quick. Even put the bed back up (as it was disassembled). I would highly recommend!"

Customer in Arundle

"The fitters turned up on time, worked continuously to fit the carpet, left the whole area clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend this company compared to previous fittings we've had from a well-known nationwide company. A great service."

Customer in West Chilltington

"James and Lewis fitted our carpets last month and we could not be happier with the result. From the initial consultation (where he took as much time as we needed to help us choose)... James was so thorough, knowledgeable, professional and really friendly. They hoovered and helped to move all furniture back afterwards. Nothing was too much trouble... I would thoroughly recommend him and his mobile showroom. Seeing the carpets in our home helped us to make the right choice. So much better than viewing in a shop!"

Customer in Dorking

"Perfect to have a mobile carpet company, especially if you work full time. Excellent customer service, sound advice, the work carried out quickly and efficiently."

Customer in Billingshurst

"Absolutely brilliant service and end result! Very efficient, they took all of the old carpet up and disposed of it, they left the house looking clean and tidy (no mess) the guys that we're doing the work we're very friendly and polite. I would highly recommend them to any friends or family and would use them again if I needed more carpets doing. Great job!"

Customer in Horsham

Customer service is at the heart of what we do...

Move any large and heavy items of furniture from each room requiring fitting.

Cut and lay the underlay, gripper rods and flooring, keeping the existing underlay and rods where possible (James will discuss this with you during his initial visit).

Trim the bottom of doors (where necessary) to ensure they move with ease.*

Remove old flooring* (this can be arranged prior to the fitting itself).*

Remove all rubbish and vacuum each room, ensuring all affected areas are left clean and tidy.

*These items, if required are chargeable.
