Spot Removal Tips

1) Act Quickly - the sooner you clean the spill, the more likely the chances of preventing a permanent stain. Remove as much of the spill as possible, scooping up semi solids with a spoon and vacuuming dry debris with a vacuum. Make sure you start with the edges of the spill and work toward the center to prevent the stain from spreading and getting bigger.

2) Blot - Don't Rub!Rubbing the carpet to try to remove a spill can cause damage to your carpet fibers. Blot liquid with a clean dry cloth or paper towels until the area is dry.

3) Pretest Spot Cleaner - When using a spot cleaner/removal agent make sure you test it first in an inconspicuous area to make sure that the solution will not damage the fiber or dye.

4) Use Spot Cleaner - Apply a small amount of your spot cleaning solution to the stain and let sit for about 10 minutes. Using a clean white cloth work the spot cleaner gently into the carpet. Continue blotting and using the cleaning solution as long as there is a transfer of the spill to the cloth. Patience is key here as complete spot removal may require repeating these steps several times.

5) Rinse The Affected Area - After the spill has been completely removed, rinse the area thoroughly with cold water and blot with a dry cloth until all the solution has been removed. If not completely rinsed out, the spot could attract more soil and leave you with a dirty spot on your carpet.

6) Allow The Area To Dry - Cover the newly cleaned area with a clean white towel or 1/2 inch layer of paper towels and weigh down with a flat heavy object. Continue to change towel/paper towels as needed until no more liquid is being absorbed.
