Ways to Get Wax Out of Your Carpets

candles What to do when candle wax gets on your carpet.

The Holiday season is here and many people celebrate by lighting candles. With the lights down low, candles can add a certain ambiance and soothing effect to any room. But sometimes candle wax can get on your carpet. SERVPRO of North Knoxville recently helped out a local funeral chapel get candle wax out of their carpet. Here's how we did it.

-Go to your local grocery store for some paper bags. Cut the bags so that you can use single sides.

-Get an iron. You want to put the iron on high heat the steam function turned OFF.

-Place the bag over the wax spill. Using the top half of the iron, place it on the bag and begin to gently pull the bag. You should see the wax begin to transfer to the bag. It may take a few bags, but continue this method until you have removed all of the wax.

When we were finished it was "Like it never even happened." At SERVPRO of North Knoxville, no job is too big and no job is too small. We are here to help in any way that you may need us. Call us at 865.947.9992.
