Removing Stains From Carpet

The rapid cleaning of spots and spills is essential in preventing permanent staining of carpet fibers. The use of a good universal spotter is recommended as a 1st approach on all types of spots. Read the instructions before using any product for safety and proper use, but the following procedure is typically suggested:
  • Remove any solids with a spoon/putty knife.
  • Blot up liquids with white terry or paper towels.
  • Spray the stained area with spotter.
  • Wait a few minutes for the product to dwell or work.
  • Repeat above until stain is removed.
  • If spot remains, then try set stain removal procedure below.
Some spots and stains cannot be removed using a universal spotter. The spot may consist of a very difficult to remove material, or it simply has been allowed to age for too long. There are two approaches possible in this situation. The first option uses the same universal spotter, but in combination with a steam iron:
  • Moisten stained area with universal spotter. 
  • Wait a few minutes for the product to dwell or work.
  • Place a white towel over the stained area.
  • Place a steam iron at medium setting on the toweling above the stained carpet (do not place on towel longer than 45 sec.).
  • Move toweling occasionally to provide a clean wicking area to absorb the stain.
  • Repeat this procedure until stain is removed.
  • Dry the area using a hair dryer after stain is removed to prevent the stain from wicking back into the surface of the pile.
