How to Remove Glue from Carpet
Being a sticky substance, glue obviously attracts a lot of dirt and can appear black in color. Use caution when following the instructions below. The backing of carpet is made of latex adhesive, so if cleaning products are soaked to the backing, delamination can occur.
- Apply Matrix® Orange Power Gel undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
- Apply Matrix® Break Down POG undiluted to a clean white spotting towel. Use the spotting brush to tamp and blot the towel against the spot. CAUTION: Do not saturate carpet with Break Down. This product will dissolve latex carpet adhesive and can cause delamination.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 until no more transfer onto spotting towel is observed.
- Rinse area thoroughly with water.
- Dry rapidly with an air mover or hair dryer.
These Products Are Designed for Professional Use Only. Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
For oil-based stains that refuse to budge, try Matrix Break Down POG. Break Down works quickly to remove grease, paint, tar, even lipstick, and can be rinsed out easily with water or Matrix Citrusolve Spotter.
