This video shows an easy way to remove wax from your carpet. Spilling wax in your carpet almost sounds traumatic, especially if it’s a red candle, but here is the easy fix. We have used this on several jobs and it works quite well. The trick is making sure the iron is hot enough to melt the wax without melting your carpet fibers. At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL we recommend a very low heat setting on your iron and about 4 layers of paper towels, just to be safe. Make sure to keep the iron moving at all times. Don’t let the iron sit for even a couple of second on the carpet. Feel free to use a clean white terry cloth towel instead of paper towels, it will work just fine. This trick also works for soder and other solids that have made their way into your carpet. If this solution does not work for you call a professional carpet cleaner and they will be happy to remove it for you.
