SPOTTING GUIDE

General spotting

Use all purpose spotter you received from Jimbo’s when your flooring was installed. If you need a refill or don’t have a bottle call or visit us.

  1. Pre-test spotter in inconspicuous area to test for colorfastness.
  2. Remove excess materials by absorbing liquids and gently scraping semi-solids.
  3. Mist spotter onto affected area and blot with clean, dry towels.
  4. Gently agitate area with towel as necessary. (Repeat steps 2-4)
  5. When dry, brush the pile gently.

These next 3 formulas can be used if the all-purpose spotter does not remove the spot adequately.

When Spotting...

Note: If the spot does not come out using the suggestions above, call us. We have professional carpet cleaners
we can recommend. Many home- owners put cleaning agents on their carpet to remove stains. Often
these cleaning agents become more of a problem than the original stain.
