Botanical Carpet Cleaning Spot Removal Guide

Use this spot removal guide to remove spots in an emergency situation. Continue using the first cleaning solution until the spot improves, then move on to the next cleaning solution after blotting dry with a clean white towel. Pretest all cleaning solutions in an inconspicuous area on the same carpet to insure that it won't damage the carpet or the dyes within the carpet fibers.  Do not vigorously scrub on the carpet, this can cause severe damage to the carpet fibers. Thoroughly blot the stain with a clean white towel in between all spot removal steps.  Due to the wide variety of carpet compositions and carpet spotting agents, Botanical Carpet Cleaning cannot assume any responsibility for any damage occurring to carpets .  Always use caution when trying to remove stains on your own, and only after pre-testing all carpet spotting agents before using them.
