Removing candle wax from your carpet may seem impossible, however there is a simple method to handle this problem. For this reason at Cleanpro in Tacoma we would like to share useful tips to get rid of this common carpet stain.

Getting Candle Wax out of Carpet

Apply Ice on the Stain

We can't overstate the importance of cleaning the stain immediately, otherwise it will be more difficult to remove. Place several ice cubes in a resalable plastic bag and place it on the affected area for a few minutes.

Scrape the Wax

Once the stain is hardened, use a blunt knife to scrape as much wax as you can. Remember that you should be gentle, otherwise you may damage your carpet. Keep in mind that you should always test patch your cleaning solution in a inconspicuous area.

Clean the Area

Use your regular cleaning solution to clean the area. Remember to apply fresh water to rinse the area and use a clean cloth to gently blot the stain, this way you will remove any lingering moisture. You can also use your fingers or vacuum cleaner to restore the carpets fibers. Remember that you should place your candles on a sturdy place, as they can end up on your carpet and lead to fires. Also, fall is here there are certain chores that you should perform to keep your home tidy over this season, so be sure to read our guide containing helpful fall home keeping ideas.
