Carpet Cleaning: How to Remove Dry Paint From Carpet

Spilling paint on carpet, especially when you have new carpet can be a very traumatic experience. Hiring a professional carpet cleaner may be an option, but if it is not, knowing the proper procedure and solutions to use can make that ugly spot on your carpet disappear.

Here is a list of items you will need:

  1. Spatula or large spoon.
  2. Wet Dry Vac.
  3. Terry Cloth Towels.
  4. Steam Iron.
  5. Solvent: Any paint oil grease removal product will work fine. Most hardware stores that sell paint will have this. I recommend Pro-Solve Gel and Power Gel by Pro’s Choice.
  6. Please be very careful when using a liquid form of a paint oil or grease removal product. This solution can cause the carpet backing to separate.

If the paint is still wet use this procedure:

  1. Apply Pro Solve Gel to spot. “Pro Solve can be substituted with a paint oil grease removal product”
  2. Gently agitate spot using the edge of spoon.
  3. Apply Power Gel and agitate gently.
  4. Thoroughly extract using Hot Water Extraction. ” A sprayer with hot water and a wet dry vac will work”
