PAINT STAIN REMOVAL

Note: Using a wet/dry vac can be used for extraction instead of a towel.

How to remove water-based paint stains from carpet:

  1. If the paint stain is still wet, simply blot the spot with a wet paper towel  – don’t scrub, just blot.
  2. If the paint stain is dry, use hot water and a little bit of dish detergent. Let the solution sit for a few minutes to soften the paint.
  3. Once the paint is softened, use a knife or pin to scrape the paint stain. Continue to add more solution as you scrape.
  4. If the paint is still not softening, consider using a handheld steamer while you scrape to eventually remove the paint stain from the carpet.
So the next time you see a paint stain in your carpet, follow these handy ways to eliminate it in minutes.

How to remove latex paint stains from carpet:

  1. Blot the spot to remove as much wet paint as possible – don’t scrub, or you’ll push the paint further down into the carpeting.
  2. Mix a cup of lukewarm water with one teaspoon of dishwashing detergent – just make sure the detergent is mild.
  3. Work from the outside of the paint stain to the inside, gently blotting the affected area.
  4. After letting the area dry completely, follow up by vacuuming.
Remember to always do a spot removal test on a portion of carpet or upholstery that is normally not visible.
