Carpet Cleaners Can Remove Tough Oil Paint Stains From Your Carpet

If you’ve been doing a spot of do it yourself redecorating in the house you may have noticed the odd splash of oil paint on your carpet.  This might seem like a disaster as oil paint is trickier to remove than water-based paints, but rest assured that your carpet can be saved.

Just like any type of stain, the sooner you act the easier it will be to clean it.  If the paint is wet then wipe as much of it up as you can before it dries and sets into the fibres.

Unfortunately when we’re “in the zone” we tend not to notice these little accidents, unless of course it’s a big enough spill, like half a pot…guilty!

If the paint has already dried then you should use a dull knife to remove the excess hard bits.  Dip a clean towel in rubbing alcohol and blot the stain to break it up and lift it off the carpet.  Repeat the process until the paint stain is completely gone.

Removing the odd blob of paint from your carpet is easy enough, but if you’re clumsy like me and you do happen to knock over half a pot of paint onto your carpet, then it’s probably time to call a cleaning company London that offers carpet cleaning services.

Carpet cleaners London have specialized equipment and cleaning supplies that will lift even the worst stains from your carpet.

Of course, you shouldn’t wait for big accidents to occur before you hire carpet cleaning London.  For a healthier home you should hire a carpet cleaner at least once a year or every six months to prevent a build up of allergens and dulling of its colour.  You can call the carpet cleaning companies for a free quote or go online to calculate your own, specific carpet cleaning cost before booking.
