Of course, something sticky can be spilled or spilled on the carpet. The important thing is to immediately remove the stain or what has fallen on the carpet. If you do not act quickly, there is a risk that the stain will penetrate the carpet and therefore become more difficult to remove.
In this paragraph, we provide some advice on how to behave in the event of an accident.

10 things to remember in the event of an accident:

  1. Deal with the stain immediately.
  2. Collect liquids carefully using a spoon.
  3. Dilute everything with cold water if necessary.
  4. Gently tap ( do not rub ) liquids or anything that has been spilled using paper towels or a clean cotton cloth.
  5. Always work from the edges towards the centre of the spilled liquid.
  6. Use a small amount of dish soap and cold water, but only if necessary.
  7. Gently brush with a clothes brush if necessary.
  8. Repeat step 2 if necessary.
  9. You may need to dry the wet area with a fan or hairdryer set on low speed.
  10. Finish by restoring the fleece using a clothes brush (in the direction of the fleece itself).

If you want to avoid any problems, we recommend that you keep a mild and powerful stain remover at home.
Acting quickly increases the chances of saving your carpet and removing the stain completely, without having to take the carpet to a specialized dry cleaner. Remember to choose a stain remover that is gentle on the fibres, so as not to damage your carpet!
