GUIDE TO SPOT & STAIN REMOVAL

The following are the procedures for removing Spots & Stains from Carpet & Upholstery.

In general, remove spots as soon as possible following a spill or other causes. When working on a spot or stain, a bone scraper is recommended to remove caked soil or light agitation with a soft brush or towel. Always exercise caution not to fray, scratch or damage fibres with aggressive rubbing or agitation.

Always work from the outside edge to the centre of the spot to avoid spreading the problem.

Remember that scissors are the ultimate stain remover. Burns often can be fixed acceptably by careful scrapping and trimming of burnt fibres.

NOTE: In all cases start with ZIP IT Spot & Stain Remover. If ZIP IT is unable to remove the stain, proceed with a stain remover from the list below.

Be sure to rinse the treated area thoroughly with CFR hand tool to promote faster drying.

Pre-test all chemicals on carpets and upholstery for colourfastness before using them in any cleaning procedure.

Apply all spotting agents with a hand held trigger sprayer. Thoroughly wetting is normally required however taking care not to soak the stain deeper into the fabric.
