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?

They could over wet...making the carpets starchy....white furniture brown out...doing great damage....

you know how the customer thinks more is better...and less is just plain ripping me off....so yanno they'll soak it

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.

Somtimes if you dont wipe it off and it dries it could leave a white residue on furniture.  Not somthing we want to get called back for.   If you read the back of the product it says to do so.      Maybe they wrote that for the heck of it?

Maybe your company should mask room out to prevent overspray?

the problem I see with using 3m Scotchguard is that the average Joe can buy it like Cosco and the like. So as a add-on sale itd kinda hard. wouldn't you'all think?

Both have their pros and con. Scotchguard is oil based, teflon is water based.

I'll let in experienced cleaners sort-out the difference.

Oh I'm sorry its Scotchgard not Scotchguard.

 

Maybe you should start putting TM ( Trademark ) with the way your talking.

3M TM Scotchgard that is...

Get yourself lined up to go to
craig jasper's day school and you'll learn most of what you need.  Then, spend the next thirty plus years doing it, and maybe you'll get the hang of it.....

They both are water based SG use to make Teflon.  You would need a lot of the stuff they sell in a can to cover your carpet.  They would also be putting it on dry carpet, works better when carpet is wet.  The stuff you see in the DIY cleaners are also not as concentrated.
