Upholstered furniture is beautiful when it's new and clean. Over time it can get generally grubby and less attractive. If you have kids and/or pets, the time it takes to get nasty shortens significantly.
Good furniture is too costly for most people to consider disposable. That's where a solid routine of cleaning and protecting comes in.
Scotchgard and other protectants are great for preventing spills from becoming actual stains and should be reapplied every two to three years depending on wear and usage.
At Carbonated Carpet Cleaning we use all-natural cleaning solutions and 3M Scotchgard protectant ONLY. It's the best on the market and that's why it's our only choice.
