Stain Removal

Treat spills and stains immediately as the longer they remain on the carpet, the harder they are to remove.

Spills should blotted up with clean, white absorbent materials such as nappies, towels or paper towel. Solids can be removed with a spatula, or the back end of knife.

Spot and stain removal agents should always be pre-tested in an inconspicuous area. Apply several drops of the solution to the carpet and rub gently with a white cloth. If colour changes or transfers onto the cloth another cleaning agent must be used.

Do Not over wet the carpet and use only small amounts of the cleaning agent. Blot frequently never rub or brush. Always work from outer edge of the stain to the centre. Be patient, some stains respond slowly. Not all stains can be removed due the differences between fibre constructions, dyes and finishes, the type of stain and the age of the carpet and the stain.

In the accompanying chart begin with step 1. Treat the stain with the appropriate solution then follow the indicated procedure until the stain is removed. It may not be necessary to complete the entire procedure, however when the stain is removed, rinse the area with water and absorb the remaining moisture with a super absorbent cloth or an extraction machine.
