When attempting to remove stains always ensure that the carpet, fabric or bedding is dry before proceeding to the next step in the treatment.
Firstly, remove the source of the stain using one of the following methods:
(a) - Blot up liquids by applying pressure with non-coloured terry cloths, tissues or dry absorbent cloths
(b) - Scoop up solids with a knife or spoon.
(c) - Brush burn or scorch marks from surface.
Take a small piece of sponge or clean white cloth and apply the 1st treatment from the Stain Removal Chart using a small amount of the cleansing agent at a time. With blotting or dabbing motion, work inwards from the edge of the stain to prevent it spreading. Do not over-wet - excessive soaking may cause rings on the surface, spreading the stain further and may also damage the fabric. Do not rub - rubbing will spread the stain over a larger area and distort the surface texture.
If the cleansing agent has removed the stain, commence with procedures 5 to 9.
Should the stain still be apparent after the carpet cleaning the 1st treatment (and further treatments are recommended on the Stain Removal Chart) remove excess moisture from the treated area by applying pressure with non-coloured paper towels, tissues or absorbent cloths and apply the next treatment from the chart suing the procedures outlined in 2 and 3 above. Continue with recommended treatments, blotting up moisture between each new cleansing agent, until stain is removed. Call a professional cleaner if stain has failed to respond to any of the relevant treatments. Haphazard attempts at spot removal can cause permanent setting, surface distortion, matting and loss of colour.
Once the cleansing agent has removed the stain, blot up excess moisture from treated area by applying pressure with non-coloured paper towels, tissues or dry absorbent cloths.
Rinse by applying clear tepid water using a small piece of sponge or clean white cloth, again working inwards from the edge to the affected area. DO NOT RUB or tear.
Remove excess moisture as outlined in step 5.
Hasten drying by placing a clean cloth on top of the area and blow dry with a fan or reversed cycle vacuum nozz
