Any type of oil spill will create a continual wicking problem over time. Petroleum based oils can cause damage to the backing and adhesives. Quick action is important to the success of the removal.

  1. If the spill is fresh, scrape or blot up as much of the oil as possible.
  2. Apply a generous amount of HOST to the area. Work it through the yarns thoroughly and then pack it down. Allow the packed HOST Dry Extraction Cleaner to dry.
  3. Only the HOST Dry Extraction Cleaner that have not absorbed the oil will look dry. Scrape up and remove the HOST cleaner and then apply fresh HOST as a poultice and pack it down. Repeat this procedure until the spill is removed.
