As with all spot treatments, it’s important to first test a spotting method in an inconspicuous area and wait to see how it dries. If you detect any change in the original color of your fabric or a water ring forms, do not proceed. Instead, contact our office.
While there is a vast array of spotting products on the market, many of these can cause more damage to your fabric than good. Therefore, the safest spotter we regularly recommend to our customers is Folex. This gentle, residue free spotter is safe for carpet, upholstery and even area rugs! For your convenience, we carry bottles of it at our office and on our trucks. In case of emergency, you can also purchase it at most grocery and hardware stores.
- Blot up excess moisture from the spill
- Lightly blot with cool water (warm water may set the stain)
- Lightly dampen a white cloth with cool water and then spritz the cloth with Folex.
- Gently blot the affected area of your upholstery being careful not to rub and fray the material.
- Let the spot dry.
The steps above can be repeated as needed. If the spot still remains after following these steps, contact our office for further instructions or to schedule an appointment. Our IICRC trained and certified team is here to help you!
