Today i’m going to be showing you how to remove paint from your carpet.
Spilled Paint on Your Carpet
If you have ever spilled paint on your carpet, you know it stands out like a sore thumb. Paint can be very difficult to remove and if it has sat on the carpet for a long period of time it can be near impossible to get out. At that point you’ll want to call a professional. But if you get to it right away, you’ll have a better chance for removal.
Use a white absorbent cloth to remove as much of the excess as possible. This will keep most of the paint from going into the carpet fibers, just blot as much as possible until you have removed as much of the paint as possible. Tip: A wet/dry vacuum is much better to use if you have one, you can extract the paint from the carpet without risking the paint from soaking down into the backing.
Nail polish remover is great to use for cleaning up any residue left behind. Just apply to a clean absorbent cloth or towel and blot.
Apply water to the spot and blot with a clean absorbent towel or use a wet/dry vacuum to remove and residue left. This will rinse and flush out any residue.
If there are still some staining, repest steps 2 and 3 until the stain is gone.
If are unable to remove the spot after doing all of this, call a professional. Most professional carpet cleaners in Memphis should be equipped with speciality spotters to handle situations like this. For more free information like this, visit our tumblr blog, our blogspot blog or our wordpress blog
