Remember those little projects you put on the back burner earlier this year? In the summer months when the weather is nicer, and schedules aren’t as busy, is the best time to tackle those diy projects. As we all know with any diy project, comes diy mistakes. You may then find yourself googling how to remove paint …. from …well everything. Hopefully, that search lead you to us on your first try, if not don’t worry because we’ve still got you covered! We would like to go over a couple of the basics on how to remove paint from our carpet.
HOW TO REMOVE PAINT THAT IS LATEX BASED 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 cup of lukewarm water with one teaspoon of dish washing detergent – just make sure the detergent is mild.
- 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 vacuuming.
HOW TO REMOVE PAINT THAT IS OIL BASED FROM CARPET:
- If the paint stain is dry, you’ll want to use a steamer to soften the stain.
- Apply steam directly to the stain.
- Simultaneously pick at the paint stain with a needle or a pin to try and break it up.
- Continue until the stain is removed, without damaging fibers.
So the next time you see a paint stain on your carpet, follow these handy ways to eliminate it in minutes.
Note: If you do not know which type of paint is on your carpet, treat it as latex paint first before moving on.
