Spot Treatment

Simple Emergency Spot Treatment

1. ACT QUICKLY

Scoop up solids with a blunt knife or spatula.

Blot up liquid spills with paper towels or clean white toweling (such as a nappy or face washer, or even a tea-towel).

DO NOT RUB OR SCRUB.

2. APPLY SPOT REMOVER

Use a general carpet spotting agent:

Apply the spot remover to a clean white, wet towel or sponge,
then sponge it onto the spot.

DO NOT RUB OR SCRUB.

OR

If a spot removal chart is available:

Apply the appropriate spot removal agent to a clean white wet towel or sponge, then sponge it onto the spot.

DO NOT RUB OR SCRUB.

3. BLOT UP EXCESS CLEANING AGENT

with paper towels or clean white toweling, or sponge.

4. RINSE

Wet out, with clean lukewarm or cold water, clean white towel or sponge, sponge the clean water onto the spot

DO NOT RUB OR SCRUB.

DO NOT OVER WET, OR SATURATE.

5. BLOT DRY

With paper towels, or clean white towel or sponge.

6. DRY

Place a pad of clean white toweling over the patch, then place a weight (such as phone books) on top of the pad. Excess moisture is drawn up into the toweling.

Change the pad every 15 minutes to half an hour, until touch dry, then allow to dry naturally.

8. FINALLY

If any stain remains, we recommend that you do NOT keep treating it, and certainly do not try using whatever you can find in your cupboards on it. You will set the stain and possibly make it worse.

Ring a professional carpet cleaner to come out to treat it, or wait until the next time you have your carpets cleaned for the cleaner to treat it properly then.
