HOW TO REMOVE WATER-BASED PAINT STAINS FROM CARPET:
If the paint stain is still wet, simply blot the spot with a wet paper towel – don’t scrub, just blot.
If the paint stain is dry, use 10 oz of hot water and a 2 oz of DryMaster Pre X Trak Detergent. Let the solution sit for a few minutes to soften the paint.
Once the paint is softened, use a knife or pin to scrape the paint stain. Continue to add more solution as you scrape. Once done, go over it with your extractor with normal cleaning procedures to remove any cleaning and paint residues.
HOW TO REMOVE LATEX PAINT STAINS FROM CARPET:
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.
Mix a 10 oz of warm water with 2 oz of DryMaster Pre X Trak detergent.
Work from the outside of the paint stain to the inside, gently blotting the affected area.
After letting the area dry completely, follow up by cleaning with your extractor.
HOW TO REMOVE OIL BASED STAINS FROM CARPET:
If the paint stain is dry, you’ll want to use hot water to soften the stain.
Use your extractor with heater attached or use an hand held steamer as an iron (don’t place the iron on the carpet. You will burn it. just use the hot steam that comes out of it) and go over stain and Simultaneously pick at the paint stain with a needle or a pin to try and break it up.
Continue until stain is removed, without damaging fibers. Once done, go over it with your extractor with normal cleaning procedures to remove any cleaning and paint residues.
