Hello Zack,

As a painting company with a few thousand interior painting projects under our belt we've had a couple drops of paint on carpeting over the years. We take two courses of action:

1. We start with the absolute most gentle process possible. Soap and water on a cotton cloth dabbing the spot. Don't ever rub or smear the area as it could result in spreading rather than removing the stain.

2. If we're not able to remove the paint this way we call in a professional. There are too many variables when it comes to carpeting chemistry and weave to risk making the problem worse and ending up with a large carpet replacement bill to gamble.

Carpet cleaners have an entire arsenal of cleaning materials, equipment, and specialized knowledge when it comes to removing stains.

Are you a building professional?
