Remove Shampoo From Carpet
Soap spills can quickly become sudsy unfortunate occurrences if not cleaned up adequately. Before letting a drop of water hit your discharge, observe the measures below. Surely make this clean up a task for spilled shampoo as easy and quick as possible.
Things Needed for Spilled Shampoo Removal:
- Start by removing as much of the shampoo as possible BEFORE adding any water to the location. Use a bowl and spoon or dustpan to scrape the shampoo out of the surface.
- Apply pressure when you are scraping to eliminate as much of the shampoo as possible.
- After that, use a paper towel to blot the area. Soak up much of the remainder of the shampoo.
- Keep on blotting, using fresh paper towels as required, until they not any longer absorb any moisture.
- Right now, there should be small amounts of soap/shampoo left in the carpet.
- Work with a wet/dry vacuum to suction out any remaining shampoo that could have soaked further down into the carpet.
- Spray the area with a light coat of water.
- Use the wet/dry vacuum to pull the water and remaining shampoo out from the carpet.
- Proceed until no more shampoo is left.
- A little bit of suds are okay, but if they start to become overwhelming, sprinkle them with salt. The salt does away with the soap foam.
- As soon as all of the shampoos removed, blot the area using dry paper towels to remove any remaining moisture.
- Allow for the area to air dry.
- It is significant to remove as much of the shampoo as possible before adding water. The water will activate the soap and start to form suds.
- In case no wet/dry vacuum is available, blot the area by using paper towels instead. You may want to opt to rent a carpet shampooer, and running it over.
