Has anyone here tried Dupont Teflon Advanced carpet and upholstery protector? Just wondering if there's any feedback on the product...

My personal opinion is that Dupont Teflon & 3M Scotchguard are as good as each other. Most likely the best in the marketplace. What small company would have the resources to come up with better products? But SCOTCHGUARD is a buzz word that 3M has created just like Coca-Cola. Name recognition.

If I was selling hamburgers I'd want my sign to read McDonald's. You may notice that many cleaners say their product is LIKE Scotchguard or better.

This is a name that self sells.

How do you guys feel about Teflon carpet protector? Dupont is looking for a partner to take this stuff into the grocery stores. How badly can the average consumer screw this up?

Take my advice, I know what I'm talking about.........listen to Ted the Carpetologist and CEO of KleenKuip. When Ted speaks..........Everybody listens............Ted really knows his hambergers.........when he says he would want the McDonalds sign outside his door.......he's a man of action.

LET'S ALL MEET AT MCDONALDS, THANKS TED

Can you tell the difference just by looking if a carpet has been protected........lately ? If you had the carpets in your house protected how would you change the frecuency of deep cleaning them ? I assume that dirt accumulates no matter how protected a carpet is and must be extracted periodically. Is that right ? Or does protecting repel dirt and stains at different  levels of intensity ?

And last does a pad cleaning, or TM cleaning or portable cleaning take away the Teflon or Scotchguard.  Thanks.

Do you know why no one likes to give information???because you could be wrong...lol

I can't tell the difference...just by looking at a carpet ...I can tell you if I'm cleaning...lol

The average carpet with Gard should still be cleaned at least once a year...less with number of people in the house...even less with pets...

Dirt does accumulate no matter how protected the carpet is...but if the customer has gard and vacs daily a lot more of those dry dirt particles will be sucked away...

If the Carpet is a thick ouncage ie 70+ oz carpet with gard it is more likely to repel dirt and stains better than a 35 oz carpet with gard...

only 5-15% of gard is removed during cleaning...but gard is also lost in high traffic area just from walking and the friction transfer

please someone correct me if I'm wrong

Thanks Mr Steamer. Interesting concepts. I just wrote some facts from your answer and one of them is that probably a person would be re-garding  a carpet from 2 to 4 years from the first protection date. That is if you ad all those %'s you mention: 5-15% taken away from cleaning, and let's say 15 to 30% taken away from traffic depending on how much traffic.  Dry vacuum of course has to be done probably as frequently as a non-garded carpet. Soil gets into both inevitably.

Our firm uses dupont teflon.   We have had very good success with it.   They started out using scotchguard and had a few problems with the carpet getting stiff so they swithched to teflon and have not had any problems since.   just wipe off all those baseboards and furniture.

I am confused about the wipe off baseboard and furniture part. Why would you have to do that?
