Useful Tips on How to Get Paint Out of a Carpet

So, you’ve decided to do a little DIY painting project and repainted your guest room a cool shade of Paris Grey. While proudly admiring your impressive paint job, you suddenly realize Paris Grey is not only on your walls but on your carpets too! Even though you’ve used newspapers and plastic to protect your floors from paint splatters and spills, somehow, it always seems to find its way onto your carpet. What now? While it seems like an impossible task, you can remove paint from your carpets. The cleaning process may take a bit of patience and some elbow grease, but it can be done.

Before we dive in, when dealing with a paint spillage, the crucial factor to consider is time. So, try to clean up the spilled paint as soon as it happens. Another important detail? You need to understand what paint type you’re dealing with. Water-based paints will require different cleaning, tools, and techniques compared to oil-based paints. Because each of these paints has different ingredients, chemicals, and properties, the carpet cleaning methods will vary. Once you’re armed with the right cleaning tools and understand all the stain removing steps you need to take, you can get to work on cleaning up the mess.

Below we take a look at the best ways to get paint out of a carpet, what to do with wet and dry paint, as well as a few at-home remedies and hacks that will have your carpets paint-free in no time at all.

What is the Best Way to Get Paint Out of a Carpet?

As mentioned above, identifying the type of paint used is crucial. Most paints fall into two categories: water-based paints and oil-based paints. Knowing which of these has toppled over onto your carpet will help the clean-up process significantly. The type of paint should be clearly marked on the paint can or container. Otherwise, you can ask the store where you bought the paint from or find the details online.

  • Oil-based Paint: Unsurprisingly, natural or synthetic oils form the base of oil-based paints. While oil-based paints are extremely durable when it comes to painting your house, the oil present in these paints makes them all the more challenging to remove from your carpet.
  • Water-based Paint: As the name suggests, water-based paint uses water as its base. Because of this, water-based paints (also known as latex paints) are easier to remove from your carpets and rugs when either wet or dry.

Now that we’ve covered the difference between oil and water-based paints, let’s take a look at how to clean each of these when wet and dry,

How to Get Wet Paint Out of a Carpet

We’ll discuss how to deal with water-based paint and oil-based paint.

How to Get Wet Water-Based Paint Out of a Carpet

  1. Unsure of how to get latex paint out of carpet?  For water-based paint that’s wet, use a damp paper towel to blot and absorb the top layer of paint.
  2. As tempting as it may be, don’t scrub the area. This will push the paint further into the carpet’s fibers.
  3. If you’ve run out of paper towels, use a clean cloth instead. It should be a cloth that you don’t mind staining or throwing away after you’ve used it.
  4. After blotting up the surplus paint, splash hot water over the area to wet it.
  5. While the spot moistens with water, mix 8 (fl oz). luke warm water and 0.50 (fl oz). of dish soap to create a gentle warm water cleaning solution.
  6. Grab a scrubbing brush, massage the area until a gentle lather appears. Work your way from the stain’s outer parts moving towards the stain’s center, this will avoid spreading the stain over a wider circumference.
  7. Keep scrubbing, and you’ll start to see the paint slowly starting to disintegrate. Feel free to use more soap solution if necessary.
  8. After you’ve finished washing the area, vacuum the spot thoroughly. This will stop mildew or mold growing within the fibers.

How to Get Wet Oil-Based Paint Out of a Carpet

  1. When it comes to wet oil-based paint, try to pick up as much of the messed paint with a paint scraper or butter knife. Do this by carefully placing the knife beneath the paint and raising the knife or scraper to lift the paint.
  2. Don’t scrub bits of the paint into the carpet, as this means it will be even trickier to get rid of.
  3. With a heavy-duty paper towel (or a clean cloth), begin blotting up the paint. Only stop blotting once there is no more paint being lifted.
  4. Next, dab your cloth with some turpentine or paint thinner, and keep on blotting. The chemical composition of turps or paint thinner will help loosen the pain and dissolve the stain.
  5. Remember to open windows and doors in order to get some fresh air when working with turpentine.
  6. When the stain has completely dissolved, you’ll need to get rid of the paint thinner. To do this, mix 8 (fl oz) warm water with 0.50 (fl oz) dish soap. Gently rub the area, and then use your cloth to lift any remaining moisture.
  7. Finally, run your vacuum over the previously stained spot.

How to Get Dry Paint Out of a Carpet

We’ll again discuss how to deal with water-based paint and oil-based paint.

Removing and Cleaning Dry Water-Based Paint

  1. With a utility or butter knife, carefully scratch off all the dry paint you can manage. Scraping the paint off this way will remove any big, dry pieces of the paint.
  2. Use your hands to pick up the larger paint chips and a vacuum to suck up the finer paint chips.
  3. Mix a 8 (fl oz) of water with 0,5 (fl oz) dish soap in a spray bottle. Lightly spritz your mix onto the dry paint stain, and leave it to soak for a while.
  4. Using a hard brush, massage the spot, increasing the solution as and when you need it. If the paint has sunk far into the carpet, redo this process a few times.
  5. Finally, vacuum the area. It might be a good idea to use a store-bought carpet cleaning product afterward to freshen up the spot.

Removing and Cleaning Dry Oil-Based Paint

  1. When it comes to oil-based paint stains that have dried, use a knife to lift off the hardened top layer—disposing of the paint pieces so they are removed from the soiled space.
  2. Next, use a strong needle to further loosen up the paint. You can use a vacuum to suck up the smaller paint chips.
  3. Then your steam cleaner should lift up any excess paint.
  4. Next, dab a cloth with acetone or paint thinner and use the cloth to blot the stain lightly.
  5. Then try steam cleaning with a mild dish soap/warm water solution.
  6. If the tops of the carpet are still stained, try to trim the tips with a razor or pair of scissors.

What About Other Types of Paint?

Now that we have covered how to remove and clean up water-based and oil-based paints, what are the best methods to clean up other types of paint? Let’s explore how best to get rid of spilled acrylic paint, emulsion paint, and washable paint off your carpets.

How to Get Acrylic Paint Out of a Carpet

  1. Using an eyedropper, squeeze a couple of drops of acetone on the acrylic paint stain.
  2. Then using a dry cloth or paper towel blot the spot to lift any visible paint.
  3. Apply a good carpet spot remover, and after a couple of minutes, use a steam vacuum to lift the solution. Finally, leave the carpet to dry completely.

How to Get Emulsion Paint Out of a Carpet

  1. Soak a splash of rubbing alcohol on a clean cloth and use it softly dab the stain.
  2. In order to clean the area around the stain, opt for a wet vacuum cleaner.
  3. Take glycerin-soaked paper towels and use them to blot the stain. Continue until all the emulsion paint has eventually lifted.

How to Get Washable Paint Out of a Carpet

  1. With a moist sponge, blot the paint stain, wash or change the sponge as it becomes soaked in the paint.
  2. If any stain remains, apply the rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball and blot again until the cotton ball soaks up the washable paint.
  3. If needed, you can lift the solution with a steam vacuum.

How to Remove Paint from a Carpet with Home Remedies

On top of the methods mentioned above, several additional home remedies may be sitting in your bathroom or kitchen cabinets. Let’s take a closer look at each home remedy below:

Nail Polish Remover / Acetone

Many nail polish removers have acetone as a main active ingredient. Acetone works as a powerful solvent for both oil-based and latex-based paint and can be used to remove paint from several different types of surfaces, including your carpets and soft furnishings.

  1. Put some nail polish remover on a clean cloth and dab the stain with it.
  2. Be sure to keep the area where you’re working well ventilated. Prolonged exposure to acetone fumes can be harmful to your health.
  3. Blot until the paint is lifted and then clean with a mild cleaning solution.

Rubbing Alcohol

Because alcohol is a degreasing agent, it helps break down the components of many greasy stains, including oil-based paints.

  1. Wet the stain with some warm water so that the stained spot becomes damp.
  2. Then apply the rubbing alcohol to a clean white cloth, white paper towel, or cotton ball.
  3. Next, use the cloth or paper towel to dab up the paint stain. Rinse it with warm water and repeat the process as needed.

Using Turpentine to Remove Paint from a Carpet

Turpentine will help separate spilled paint from the carpet’s fibers, allowing you to remove more paint without scrubbing.

  1. Wet the stain with some warm water so that the spot is damp.
  2. Then apply turpentine to a clean cloth, paper towel, or cotton ball.
  3. Next, use the cloth, paper towel, or cotton ball to dab up the stain.
  4. Rinse it with warm water and repeat the process as needed.

Does WD-40 Remove Paint from a Carpet?

A versatile product, WD-40 has a wide range of surprising uses. One, in particular, is removing paint from your carpets. The solvents in WD-40 help to break down oil stains—loosening stubborn oil molecules from fabric fibers.

  1. Add some WD-40 to the paint-stained area, and watch as it starts to soften up.
  2. Gently rub the WD-40 with a clean rag, then let it soak the stain for around twenty minutes or so.
  3. Following this, the stain should have dissolved. Next, you can add  a smidge of dishwashing liquid and water to clean the area.

Can Carpet Cleaning Products Get Paint Out of a Carpet?

Indeed, some of them can. This will depend on the type of paint stain, whether it’s wet or dry, and the volume of paint. Unfortunately, large deposits of paint are usually hard to remove with regular household carpet cleaners. You may want to start with something like acetone or rubbing alcohol to loosen the paint and follow with a carpet cleaner to help remove the stain afterward.

  1. Apply the carpet cleaner directly to the carpet, then gently scrub with a brush or toothbrush.
  2. Let the carpet cleaner sit for five to six minutes after scrubbing.

Note: Before using it to remove a paint stain, read the cleaning product’s label to make sure it’s safe to use on paint and carpets.

Professional Carpet Cleaning

While these DIY methods have shown success, the surest way to remove paint and preserve the integrity of your carpet is to call an IICRC certified carpet cleaner like Carpet Tech. While harsh chemicals or soaps may remove the paint, it could damage your carpet or the padding underneath.  Be sure to reach out to a professional to discuss your options.

So, there you have it. Everything you need to know about getting paint stains out of your carpet: Remember, the sooner you get to cleaning the stain, the better. The longer it’s left to soak into the carpet fabrics and harden, the more likely you’ll have permanent Paris Grey stains where they shouldn’t be. Happy cleaning!

DIY disaster? Need to know how to get paint out of carpet? Given the amount of time we’re all spending at home, getting on with a bit of DIY or getting creative with your acrylics and chalk paint is a great idea, that is, until you started painting without laying down anything to protect the floor. .. Now you’ve got paint in the carpet, have spent the last 45 minutes-1 hour verbally berating yourself and need to know – as a matter of some urgency – how to get the paint out of the carpet before someone else notices or worse, before it dries…

Fear not, friends. We’re here with all the tricks of the trade in a bid to help you right this wrong, whether you’ve been using gloss paint (oil-based), emulsion paint (water-based) on your walls, or if you’ve been dabbling in a little art with acrylic paints (containing plastic particles) or even chalk paint (containing calcium carbonate powder).

How to get dried paint out of carpet

This is very easily done, especially with acrylics and latex paint as they dry super fast. So, if you let your paint dry into the carpet while you panicked (and furiously googled) how to remove it, or if you only just spotted it (aka someone or the kids spilt paint on the carpet and conveniently forgot to tell you) rest assured, there is hope.

  1. First you want to try and gently scrape as much away as possible with a knife and without damaging the fibres of your carpet. 
  2. Then you want to grab your best vacuum cleaner and pull up all the debris you can.
  3. Next, we’d recommend using a steam cleaner to lift as much of the stain as possible from the carpet. If you haven’t got one, saturate the paint stain with water and use a wet/dry vacuum (or your cloth and some elbow grease) to pull up more debris.
  4. Next, blot the stain with white spirit. You can use a mixture of white vinegar and water for a more natural alternative (1/4 teaspoon vinegar to 3-4 C. water) or replace the vinegar with dish soap.
  5. This will help loosen the paint from the carpet, so you can then take a stiff brush to scrub the area down with.
  6. Continue applying your solution and scrubbing until the stain starts to lift.

How to get gloss paint out of carpet

The first thing you should do again, is try to manually remove as much of the paint as possible using a scraper, or a similar tool. Between each scoop, remember to wipe your tool completely before repeating the process. Be mindful that you’re trying to lift the paint out of the carpet, as opposed to spreading it further.

Next, take a paper towel and gently – again, taking care not to spread the paint further – try to blot away as much of the paint as you can.

When this is done, you’ll need to move on to using white spirit in a bid to lift the stain. As gloss is generally oil-based, you’ll need to use a solvent like paint thinner (white spirit), acetone, hydrogen peroxide in order to remove it effectively although you can use dishwashing soap also. 

Using a solvent to remove gloss paint

Dampen a clean cloth, or piece of kitchen roll, with your white spirit solution, acetone or hydrogen peroxide and gently blot the affected area. This should loosen the paint and make it easier to lift away. You’ll likely need a lot of cloth, or kitchen roll, for this as you’ll need to take care not to spread the paint further once it becomes saturated with paint.

Once you’ve removed the paint using white spirit, use a simple soap and water to clean up the carpet. You can also use baking soda to reduce the smell of white spirit.

Using dishwashing soap to remove gloss/oil paint

This will be fine on light patches but embedded paint will better benefit from the above method. Mix a few of drops of dish soap like Dawn or Fairy Liquid (UK equivalent) with cold water and soak a clean cloth. Press this onto the paint traces and blot off excess water and repeat as needed.

  • How to clean paint brushes if they are looking messy too.

How to get emulsion paint out of carpet

As emulsion is water-based, it shouldn’t be too difficult to remove it from carpet using a simple soap detergent and plenty of water.

  1. The first thing you should do is try to manually remove as much of the paint as possible using a scraper, or a similar tool (a spoon or kitchen spatula will do). If you don’t have this kind of tool to hand, you could use kitchen roll to blot away as much of the paint as possible.
  2. Next, make up your water and detergent solution then apply this using a clean cloth, or kitchen roll. Wait for a few minutes for the stain to soften furthermore and then blot. Remember, your aiming for the cloth to soak up the paint, so it will need regular replacing.
  3. You can also use your knife or pin to keep pulling up the paint stain, adding more solution as you do this.
  4. If you’re not getting anywhere but have a steam cleaner to hand, try using this to lift the paint out of the carpet furthermore.

How to get chalk paint out of carpet

A fairly recent DIY favorite, chalk paint in no longer reserved just for the classroom, but that doesn’t mean it belongs on your carpet either! Try and get to it while it is still wet and there are a couple of methods you can try to lift it: one with vinegar, the other with dish detergent.

  1. Wipe up what you can with a scraper and paper towel.
  2. Blot the stain with white vinegar, working from the outside in. 
  3. Use a clean area of cloth to continue to blot until all the stain is removed.
  4. Rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly.

How to get chalk paint out of carpet with dish soap

  1. As above, remove as much of the paint from the carpet’s surface as possible.
  2. Then, mix 1/4 cup liquid dish soap with warm water, about one cup, using an electric whisk (if available to you) or a lot of elbow grease as you’ll want to create a lot of foam.
  3. Take the foam and apply it to the carpet, leaving it for five minutes or so.
  4. Vacuum the area with a wet/dry vacuum if you have one, or wipe up the loosened paint debris with a clean cotton cloth.

Ask the experts: How do I remove blue paint out of the carpet? 

Lynsey Crombie aka Queen of Clean recommends ‘If the paint stain is dry, use hot water and a little bit of washing up liquid. and then once the paint is softened, use a knife to scrape the paint out.’ And this should work on black or another colored paint also.

More tips for when you’ve got paint on your carpet

  • Snip the stain: You could also take to your carpet with a pair of scissors – much less scary than it sounds – and attempt to trim the paint on the tips of the carpet fibres, snipping just below the paint.
  • Dry completely: After your stain treatment, apply paper towel to the area and lye a book or something heavy down to ensure that any excess moisture is totally absorbed. 
  • Consider a reshuffle: Switch up your room so that a piece of furniture sits on top of the paint stain. If it’s in the middle of the room, a coffee table or foot stool could be your new best friend.
  • Prevention is key: Don’t let kids go about arts and crafts hour unattended and cover your carpet when you start your next DIY project, it’s as simple as that!

  2. We clean various types of paint
    1. Watercolor or gouache
    2. Latex or water-based paint

What to do if there is a paint stain on the carpet? Next, we will tell you how to remove such complex pollution without sending the product to dry cleaning.

It is better to remove the paint before it dries, otherwise it will penetrate deep into the pile and harden. But even a fresh stain requires proper handling:

  1. Liquid paint should be blotted immediately with a paper towel or cloth. In this case, the spread of the stain should be limited by covering it with a folded cloth along the edge.
  2. Thick coloring compound (sour cream consistency or thicker) must be quickly collected with a spatula, teaspoon, blunt knife, modeling stack or other thin object without a cutting edge.
  3. When picking up or blotting out the contaminant, move from the edges of the stain towards the center.
  4. When removing the contaminant from the pile, do not rub it into the pile, otherwise the dye will penetrate deeper, making subsequent cleaning more difficult.

Only after removing the bulk of the paint, you can start washing off the remaining traces on your own or turn to specialists.

Carpets made of delicate materials (silk, viscose, microfiber) should be dry-cleaned immediately, as there is a high probability of spoiling the product.

The method of removing the stain depends on the composition of the coloring agent. Next, we will look at different types of paint and how to deal with stains from them.

All methods imply that the paint that did not have time to be absorbed at the time of the start of cleaning has already been removed from the pile. At the end of the work, it is necessary to blot the pile with a paper towel, napkin or soft cotton cloth and dry thoroughly.

Watercolor or gouache

Watercolor and gouache art paints are the easiest to remove:

  1. Dissolve a teaspoon of colorless liquid soap in a glass of water, stir well.
  2. Carefully moisten the soiled pile with soapy water, rub with a soft sponge until foam appears.
  3. Remove foam, wash off soap with clean water.

Professional art materials are characterized by increased concentration and durability of pigments. It is better to wipe the stain formed from such paint with a two-phase waterproof makeup remover, and then use a soap solution according to the instructions already given.

Latex or water-based paint

These types of paint do not create significant difficulties in removing fresh stains.

Dampen the sponge with clean water and try to wash away the marks. If the stain is very small and fresh, this may be enough.

In the case when the contamination is not washed off with ordinary water, mix it with a colorless dishwashing gel (2 teaspoons of detergent per 1 glass of water). Then proceed in the same way as when removing stains from watercolors and gouache.

Do not use dishwashing liquid on wool carpets. In this case, prepare a solution based on liquid soap.

Acrylic paint

Water-dispersion acrylic paint cannot be washed off with clean water, but hydrogen peroxide copes well with traces of it.

Moisten a piece of cotton or flannel with a 3% peroxide solution, wipe the contaminated area. If necessary, repeat using a clean cloth. Then rinse the remaining product from the pile with warm water.

It is undesirable to clean dark and bright products with hydrogen peroxide – they can shed. It is strictly forbidden to use this product for silk and viscose carpets.

Oil paint

This type of paint and varnish products leaves the most difficult stains, well removed only by solvents, which in 95% of cases irreversibly damages the carpet. The safest alternative to them is glycerin. How to wash oil paint with it:

  1. After mechanically cleaning the fluff, blot the remaining stain with a dry white cloth to collect the oil.
  2. Pour glycerin generously onto a soft cotton cloth or cotton swab. Wipe the stain, changing the napkin or sponge often so as not to stain already cleaned areas with paint.
  3. After removing the stain, treat the area with soapy water as described above. For preparation, use dishwashing liquid or soap, depending on the composition of the carpet. Remember to rinse the pile with clean water.

A silk or viscose carpet should be immediately dry-cleaned – its delicate pile will not tolerate such cleaning.

How to get hair dye out of carpet

A stain from hair dye or tonic should be removed as quickly as possible – due to the ongoing reaction of the composition, the pile can change shade in a matter of minutes. Apply hair shampoo to a damp sponge, rub the contaminated area until foam forms, then collect it and wash it with water.

If there is a stain left on the pile, use a remover (hairdressing lotion to remove traces of hair dye) or a two-phase make-up remover. Moisten a cotton pad or pad with it, gently wipe off the dirt. Change the sponge as you color the cotton to avoid smearing the stain. Rinse the area with clean water.

With such contamination, it is better to contact the dry cleaner. If this is not possible, you can try to solve the problem yourself.

All kinds of paints except oil

Scrape the crust with a spatula or knife (carefully so as not to pull out the villi), prepare a soapy solution, moisten the soiled area with plenty of it, leave for 10-20 minutes. Wipe off dirt with a sponge. If the paint does not separate, apply glycerin to the pile, leave for 3 hours. Repeat the procedure using a soap solution.

Glycerin can be replaced with a mixture of 1 cup water and 1 tablespoon 9% vinegar. Apply the solution to the contaminated area, cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap, leave for 1-3 hours. Then wash according to the already described scheme.

Oil paint

Remove easily detachable pieces by hand or with a thin, non-sharp object (very carefully, there is a high probability of damage to the pile), ensure the room is thoroughly ventilated, and then moisten a clean white cloth with turpentine and lightly, without pressing, apply the liquid to the stain. Rub lightly – the paint will begin to separate from the fibers, so change the napkin more often. At the end of the treatment, wash the pile with soapy water, then with clean water. Blot wet area, leave to dry.

Do not use aggressive solvents (acetone, white spirit, etc. ). The result of their use can be a discoloration of the pile or even a literal melting of the fibers.

Silk or viscose carpet cannot be cleaned of paint at home – only dry cleaning. Cotton is difficult to clean – often traces remain, and wool in about half of the cases is well cleaned with improvised means of all types of paint. Most types of synthetics are easy to clean, since the pigment does not penetrate the synthetic fibers so deeply – with such carpets, you most rarely have to go to the dry cleaner.

If the exact composition of the product is unknown or there is no certainty that it will be possible to remove the stain on your own, this is a good reason to turn to specialists.
