Paint Removal from Carpet


How to Remove Paint from Carpet

Paint that has spilled onto carpet can be a tricky spot to remove. Sometimes that spots can be thick droplets that have dried, or it can be smears ground into carpet from a customer's attempt to wipe it up.



  1. Apply Matrix Breakdown POG (Paint Oil and Grease Remover) undiluted to a clean, white towel. Tamp and blot the towel against the stain with a nylon spotting brush.
    Note: Do not apply Breakdown directly to the carpet or allow Breakdown to penetrate through the backing; this can potentially cause delamination.
  2. Apply Matrix Release undiluted. Work in with a bone spatula. Tamp and blot with a spotting towel and tamping brush until no more transfer is observed.
  3. Rinse the area thoroughly with water.


Warning: Always test materials for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix products unless specified in the label directions.
