Ice Melt Removal

Ice melt is tracked onto carpet during the winter months. The heaviest buildup is usually in the entry areas of a building. It will appear white and crusty on carpet.

Basic Method

  1. Vacuum carpet thoroughly.
  2. Combine Matrix All Fiber Rinse at 6 oz per gallon of water into a pump-up sprayer, and spray on affected carpet.
  3. Agitate with a pile brush or a Grandi Groom. Let it dwell on carpet for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Extract area with Matrix Target Tannin Stain Remover diluted at 6 oz per gallon of water. 

Warning and Cautions: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
