1.) The first method that I would try is to gently scrape it up with the edge of a butter knife and then vacuum up the shavings easily.
2.) If scraping doesn't work, try covering the area in a plastic bag full of ice to harden the crayon and try using the butter knife again. Again, vacuum up the crayon shavings from the carpet.

If there is still residue left from the crayon, the next step is to call a professional carpet cleaning company like Victoria Carpet Care and arrange a time for a free in-home cleaning quote.

Frequently asked questions:
What method does Victoria Carpet Care use for cleaning?
The method we use for cleaning is hot water extraction, commonly referred to as steam cleaning. Victoria Carpet Care's professional hot water extraction method removes the toughest, deepest dirt safely and gently. Hot, soft water and a specially formulated cleaning solution are injected deep within the carpet fibers. Then, a powerful suction extracts deep-down dirt, allergens, cleaning solution and 95% of the moisture. It’s the cleaning method most recommended by carpet manufacturers.
Why should I have a protector applied to my cleaned carpets?
As the finishing touch to your thoroughly cleaned carpet or upholstery, specially formulated protector can be professionally applied. These products help carpet and upholstery resist soiling from dry dirt and spills by wrapping each fiber in a protective coating. This extra layer gives you more time to clean up spots and spills before they soak into the fibers, helping you keep your carpet and upholstery looking its best between professional cleanings. Plus, it makes vacuuming and cleaning up spots easier.
The single most important thing we can do for our customers is to maintain an attitude of honesty and integrity at all times, both in our cleaning and our commitment to professional carpet cleaning services. With over 10 years of carpet cleaning experience in Victoria, our goal is to be constantly at the forefront of today's carpet cleaning technology and smart chemistry, to provide you with the very best carpet, upholstery and rug cleaning.
