Quick call your travel agent!
Better yet just take a deep breath. There are 3 things I want you to do. That’s it just 3.
- Take another deep breath. Panic is the mind killer, stay calm and it will all turn out ok.
- Take a wet towel and drape it over the spill. I know you will feel compelled to try to mop it up or try to remedy the problem your self, but in my experience most of the time this is just making matters worse. The wet towel will keep the paint from drying. This is what is important! Once the paint is dry it will be very difficult to remove from your carpet.
- Call a professional. Even the biggest spills can be cleaned up through hot water extraction if the paint is still wet.
That’s about it. I am sure a wet dry vac might help but at the end of the day I feel that your best bet is to call a carpet cleaning company that has dealt with this situation before.
I had an experience where a lady was painting her living room and her dog bumped into the step ladder where the gallon of paint was. The dog knocked it over spilling the entire gallon and the proceeded to walk, repeatedly, through it! Well she was not very happy with the little dog but the paint did come out through hot water carpet cleaning.
Until next time
