Ways to Get Wax Out of Carpet

Candles are a wonderful way to create a cozy atmosphere in your home. Like with al things, accidents can happen. We will be discussing what to do if one of the accidents happen in your home. Candles are a practical response in a lot of situations. When candles are not closely monitored, they create problems. If you have ever tried to get hardened wax out the carpet, you know what we are talking about. It is not a pleasant task.

Let Carpet Stretch and Rescue help you out. Here are two trusted methods you can take a crack at to remove wax in a carpet.

Heat

Apply heat to the spot. First cover the area with a paper towel or plain cloth. Use only materials that do not have color or a pattern. Otherwise, you run the risk of transferring or leaking patterns into the carpet. The next step is to grab the household iron and set it on its lowest setting. Press the heated iron over the covered area and evenly distribute the heat by moving the iron in circular motions. The wax will heat up and absorb into the towel. If necessary, repeat.

Scraping

Try gently scraping out the stain after the wax has completely dried. A butter knife should get the job done. Avoid aggressive digging so as not to damage the carpet surface.

Depending on the carpet, we cannot assure all traces of wax will be removed. If you cannot remove the stain to your satisfaction, it would be a good idea to contact professionals like Carpet Stretch and Rescue. We can simply remove the damaged area of carpet and replace it with a donor piece so that the accident looks like it never even happened. We are ready to perform commercial and private services under the safest manufacturing processes. Whether wax, red wine, or pet odors, take the smart step.
