How To Remove Fresh Latex Paint From Carpet ~ Carpet Cleaning, Victoria BC


No matter how careful you are, painting walls or a ceiling is a dirty job. Not only do you risk getting paint on yourself, but also on furniture or the floor. If you have carpeted floors, it can be especially difficult to remove the paint. Fresh paint will drip and settle deep into the fibers of carpet.  A paint stain on a carpet can be a very unsightly thing (especially a dark color on a light carpet) and can also be rather hard to remove if it is allowed to dry.

Directions on how to get the latex paint spots out from your carpet:

1)  Remove as much wet paint as you can by blotting with a clean, white, absorbent cloth; work from the outside in to avoid spreading the stain.

2 )  Sponge with cool water and blot again (still from the outside in) until you've removed as much paint as you can.

3)  Mix one teaspoon mild dishwashing detergent in a cup of lukewarm water.

 4)  Blot with detergent solution, using a clean, white cloth, working from the outside in.

 5)  Let the area dry completely and vacuum.
