Tips & Techniques for Tricky Stains


Removing Insecticide Stains from Carpet

These liquids can very rapidly permanently discolor carpet, so act quickly. Wear impervious rubber, nitrile, or thick latex gloves and use clean paper towels or white cloths to blot (do not rub) as much of the spilled dye as possible without spreading it. After blotting up the majority of the liquid, keep working with fresh clean toweling to blot up as much of the liquid that has penetrated into the carpet as possible by using your palm to press the clean towel into the carpet. Call a professional to remove as much of the remaining stain as possible.
