Hey!

I have a residential building and the top floor all commercial carpet, the roofers tracked roof cement on a ten foot by four foot area! Is there anything to get this out speedy. I'm using a few solvents with a rag but it's taking forever and not completely removing it to an acceptable point.

Any help appreciated.

I had this exact problem. This is where I found out how good Prochem Pro spotter is. It will get that out like a hot knife through butter.

I mix a little of the black prosolve spotter with the yellow. It stays wet longer and seems to work better. Wd-40 works too and keeps the carpet from squeaking.
