Vomit Removal

Vomit is made of stomach acids as well as any ingested food or beverages. One difficulty in removing some vomit is that it may contain dyes, which can permanently stain the carpet.

Basic Option:

  1. Apply Matrix Release undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  2. Apply Matrix Target Tannin Stain Remover undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel.
  3. Apply Matrix Spot Out undiluted. Tamp and blot with a spotting brush and spotting towel
  4. Using an extraction machine, rinse thoroughly with water.
  5. If there are dyes in the vomit, use Matrix Advanced Stain Remover. Mix equal parts of solutions A & B together and apply to the spot. Place a damp clean white towel over the spot and use an iron set at the lowest steam setting. Allow 4 minutes of dwell time, and then check the towel to make sure the carpet dye is not being removed. Continue to apply the iron and check it until the stain is gone.

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.
