Child and Pet Safe Spot Removal Guide

Removing spots from carpet can be simple or tedious depending upon the spot and how long it has been on the carpet. At times multiple applications of the spot removal solution, or a second solution is required. Listed below is a general spot removal procedure.

 

• Never use a circular motion to remove a spot as this destroys texture

• Blot Stain with towel and appropriate solution.

• Only use a white towel or paper towel to clean with (color towels can bleed).

• Spotting solutions from BioKleen can be found at Fred Meyer, Haggens Market, New Seasons or online.

Soot, graphite, copier toner -

1. Vacuum using crevice tool of vacuum cleaner to remove the soot.

2. If all, or most, of the soot has not been removed, call Eco Clean at 503-332-9046. If vacuuming has removed all particles go to step 1 of general procedure to remove any traces.

 

Lipstick, nail polish, and makeup -

Do not attempt to remove, this can spread it and make difficult or impossible for the professional cleaner to remove.

 

Ink

Do not attempt to remove, this can spread it out and make it difficult or impossible to be removed by a professional. Trust us on this one. You might get lucky, but chances are if you attempt it, you will get some or even most of it out. However, whatever is left will be there forever.

 

Stains That Can’t Be Removed  -

Acid toilet bowl cleaners, acne medication, alkaline drain cleaners, chlorinated bleaches, hair dyes, iodine, insecticides, mustard with turmeric, plant fertilizers and stains of this nature cannot be removed as they have permanently altered the carpet’s color. Most likely the only solution is to insert carpet from a closet, or some other area into the area where the spot was cut out.
