How To Remove Floor Wax From Carpet





To clean floor wax from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

1.  Use a dry cleaning solvent such as Carbona or Energine. Dry cleaning solvent should never be used on polyester.


This is a problem that primarily effects only new carpet owners who are unfamiliar with proper carpet maintenance and care.  Most people never have to deal with this problem more than once.  Usually after waxing their carpet for the first time, people then realize that floor wax should only be applied to "hard" flooring surfaces.

As nice as having a freshly waxed carpet may sound, don't be tempted to give it a try.  Floor wax doesn't belong on carpet.
