My bastard plumber has just left a charming green stain on my brand new light beige carpet. I've no idea what it is - it seems to be just a colour mark, it's not a liquid or anything that can be scraped off. What can I do?! I've tried various carpet stain cleaners before but they've been useless (though they were on old stains). Pleeeeease help, I can't bear it!!!
Sorry but I think you're going to have to bite the bullet and pay a professional to come in and steam clean it. Does your bastard plumber know what's happened? If he's contrite I'd get him to pay for cleaning.
I think the plumber should be sorting it out TBH surely its part of his job to protect your things while he is working as someone has said he should be insured. Ha ha the cylinder thing sounds like waffle plumber type people would baffle me with!
Things I have don to fix bad carpet damage in the past though is - shave the area with a razor down to a part of the pile that is clean, and I even once cut the damaged carpet out and superglued an off cut down in its place ...... extreme carpetting behaviour in my household!!
Or, alternatively, it was just green dust and I've hoovered it up and the stain has gone
I was very brave and I asked him if he had insurance to cover it - he said he didn't think he did it (LOL, he said "I'm sure it wasn't the cylinder", completely changing his tune once he realised he could be in trouble over it!!) adn we had a bit of a contretempts over it. I am shaking so much though - I am rubbish at any sort of confrontation. Very pleased with myself that I did it though.
We use 1001 Spot Shot stain remover. It's in a can and is brilliant on all the stains we've used it on. Just make sure you use a white cloth with it, otherwise the colour in the cloth also comes out on the carpet too
