How to clean cigarette ash on carpet?

Posted By: admin  //  Category: Carpet Stain Removal

How would I go to cleaning a spilt ashtray on a carpet? My little brother pushed the ashtray off the desk and it went all over the carpet now theres a big grey stain. I sweeped most of the ash up now its just stuck in the carpet. I tryed OXYGEN stain removal spray and that just made it greyer. Also if I dont get it out right away will it cause mold?

Hi

I would recommend using a wet vac and slowly pour hot water (almost to the boiling point) on the spot and vacuum it up at the same time (this will open up the dye ports on the carpet fibre releasing the stain. and remove the residue from the carpet). If the stain is still visible than use a little carpet spotter on it or Dawn dishwashing liquid (2 or 3 drops into one cup of water) and repeat step 1.

The stain may come back in a few days so you may have to do this a few times. Please DO NOT put anything on the carpet that was not made for carpet. At this point if the stain is still there please call a carpet cleaner. Carpet cleaner of 14 years

Vacuum thoroughly then use OXY CLEAN , vacuum again preferably with a wet and dry vac or shop vac and repeat with another round of OXY CLEAN may take some elbow grease
