How to Remove Tar from Carpet

30 Mar

With the summer heat approaching, Hazleton area residents will once again have to deal with fresh tar being tracked into their homes.   Winter has done its damage with pothole patching and crack sealing to soon commence.

Tar is a sticky subject and can be very tricky to remove.   Usually a dry cleaning solvent such as mineral spirits or denatured alcohol can be used to break down the mess.  Never pour the cleaning agent directly on your rug.

Apply some of the spot cleaner on a white towel.   Blotting the spot with a white towel, not rubbing, will aide in the cleanup process.   Your local carpet cleaner carries a professional dry spotting agent if you need assistance

So if you’re passing through Northeast PA, beware of the potholes.   If they don’t get you the tar will.
