    Directions for Removing Spots from Carpets, Rugs and Upholstery with APS:

    • Pre-test in an inconspicuous location for dye stability and upholstery shrinkage.
    • Always ask what has already been used on the spot or stain.
    • UNLESS soot or other insoluble powder, simply clean first.
    • Don’t do anything to void warranty.
    • Remove excess debris with spoon, spatula or towel.
    • Apply APS to spot and work it into spot with a tamping brush, bone scraper or Carpet Shark.
    • BLOT, don’t rub - rubbing may distort the fiber tips.
    • Work from edges to center to keep from spreading the spot.
    • Blot using clean, white, absorbent towels.
    • Brush fabric to align fibers.
    • Don’t over-wet (causes wicking).
    • Avoid doing anything to make the spot or stain YOUR problem by making it bigger or making it a different color or by causing any damage!
    • If spot cleaning upholstery, clean entire cushion, not just a spot.
    • If you are removing a spot on a zippered cushion, place a towel under fabric under the area while spotting and remove later - to reduce wicking.
    • Always rinse thoroughly after use.
    • If a large or heavy spill, apply Stain Blotter to keep the stain from wicking back up and reappearing.
    • If wool, cotton or other natural fiber, apply Brown Out™ after spotting and cleaning to prevent browning.
    • Dry as fast as possible.
    • Be patient!
    • Under-promise & over-deliver!
    • CAUTION: Some medicines such as acne medicine contain oxidants such as benzoyl peroxide. These medicines will bleach the carpet dye when spotted with any water-based spotter such as APS. USE SPARINGLY.

    Stain Removal Tips For the Professional Carpet Cleaner

    • Unless the spot or stain problem is soot or other carbon material, it is normally best to simply clean the carpet first and then treat any remaining spots and stains - because most will come out with the cleaning, plus the excess material must be removed for the spotter to be fully effective.
    • Pretest all spotters in an inconspicuous area. Particularly check for colorfastness.
    • Avoid over wetting. Over wetting may cause damage to the backing and may result in the spot wicking back up within a few days.
    • Do nothing when trying to remove the spot or stain from the carpet to void the warranty.
    • BLOT, do not rub! Rubbing will distort the fibers and “blossom” the tips.
    • Work from the edges of the spill to the center to prevent spreading of the spill.
    • Use clean, white, absorbent towels.
    • Use drip-spout bottles and apply to the towel - do not pour spotters onto the carpet or upholstery. Solvent spotters may dissolve fabric adhesives or backing. Keep your spotter bottles in your spotting kit and off the carpet.
    • If working on a zippered upholstery cushion, place a dry absorbent towel under the fabric.
    • Never put wet cushions back onto the sofa or on carpet.
    • To avoid water rings on a cushion when removing a spot, clean the entire cushion face rather than just a spot.
    • Unless otherwise instructed, extract after removing spots and stains from carpet, rugs or upholstery.
    • Unless otherwise instructed, dry as quickly as possible. Use extra dry strokes and blowers or hair dryer.
    • For a heavy spill, after blotting and extraction, leave a folded weighted white towel or Stain Blotter on the area overnight to prevent wicking as the last step. This is because MOST of the spot is actually in the pad and backing!

    For extreme wicking problems from spills, such as in a cafeteria or lunchroom, on level loop carpet, dry bonnet the area after cleaning, do a Brown Out rinse and apply ARA. Cleaning with SCR Soil Crystallization Rinse instead of your normal detergent may also very significantly reduce reappearing spots and stains. NOTE: Do not run a DRY bonnet on olefin (polypropylene) carpet or rug - olefin has a very low softening point!

    Increase fresh airflow when using solvents and avoid breathing the vapors.

    When using solvents such as Saf-T-Solv™ always wear rubber gloves.

    Avoid doing anything to making the spot or stain YOUR problem by making it bigger or making it a different color or by causing any damage!

    BE PATIENT!

    ALWAYS under-promise and over-deliver (most cleaners do the opposite).
