NAIL POLISH REMOVAL
Nail Polish Removal
1. Immediate Action. As soon as you notice the spillage/stain act immediately to avoid the nail polish seeping further into the carpet fibres or dry up. The longer you wait the worse the stain will be.
2. Blot Stain. Grab a lint free white rag. DO NOT RUB the stain as this technique can actually push the nail polish further into the carpet and ruin the carpet pile, so it’s important that you blot the stain instead. Start on the edges and work inward as well, so that the stain doesn’t spread.
3. Remove Excess. Using a rag or paper towel, blot the excess nail polish from the carpet.
4. Remove Stain. Before you start applying cleaning products on the stain, test them in an unseen and inconspicuous area of your carpet. This is especially important if you have a dark-coloured carpet, because some products will remove the carpet’s dye along with the nail polish.If your carpet is a very light colour, try using a non-acetone nail polish remover. Pour some onto a rag and blot the stain, slowly removing it. If your carpet is dark, try using hair spray or rubbing alcohol instead. Again, spray/pour them onto a rag and blot. DO NOT SPRAY/POUR STRAIGHT ONTO CARPET.
6. Rinse. Once the stain is removed, rinse the area with water and dab with a cloth to dry AGAIN NEVER RUB THE CARPET.. If the stain smells strongly of nail polish or nail polish remover, you might want to wash the area with a mixture of liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water before you rinse (APPLY TO A CLEAN RAG. DO NOT PUT STRAIGHT ONTO CARPET). Place clean dry white rag over the area and place a heavy item on top to soak up the excess water.
7. Contact Australian Carpet Cleaning Services P/L: for further assistance or if the stain is still visible. It is imperative that no other carpet cleaning chemicals are applied to any stain as this will set the stain in the carpet making it impossible and/or difficult to remove.
