Has anyone used scotchguard or and other carpet protectant on your carpeting? We are picking up our 99 Chieftain this weekend which is new to us! I have a small Bissell Spot Lifter Power Brush that I thought I would use to freshen up the carpeting. If anyone has any other advise on carpet cleaning that would be great. I was thinking using a protectant of some sort might be a good idea, after cleaning. Any advice? I checked other posts regarding carpet cleaning, but have not seen any posts on using a protectant. Thanks, Mary

Take a look at 303 Protectant website. They make a fabric protector that looks really good. I haven't tried it yet but I have a small container and will be spot testing it soon.

It is a good idea after you get it completely clean. You would not want to seal or protect any residual dirt. Vacuume well so you won't be waisting cleaner on loose dirt and keep at it until it is clean enough to apply the stain guard. If it is badly soiled it may take a few cleanings before you get there.

We've used Scotchguard Oxy Carpet Cleaner for years. Its good for spot cleaning and general cleaning.

Mostly we use it to clean the occasional water stain on the ceiling carpet.
