  1. Before entering the work area, put on the disposable apron and gloves.
  2. Place warning signs at the extreme of the work area to warn people of your presence.
  3. Place all of the equipment within easy reach, taking care that none of it comes into contact with the stain to be cleaned.
  4. Standing over the stain, take the absorbent granule container and sprinkle it liberally over the stain, making sure it is completely covered.
  5. After giving the granules time to absorb the majority of the liquid, check that it has been drawn from the carpets and is beginning to take a more solid form.
  6. Once you are satisfied, take the cardboard spatula and agitate the stain.Using the cardboard spatula and working from the outside of the stain in, scrape the residue into the scoop and place it into the waste bag. Place the scoop and spatula in the bag for disposal.
  7. After taking as much of the stain up as possible, take up the rest of the powder using the dry cleaning cloth and dispose of it in the waste bag.
  8. Once the majority of the stain has been removed, spray the area liberally with the anti-septic solution and allow a couple of minutes for it to act.
  9. Taking another clean cloth dry the area and dispose of it in the waste bag.
  10. Before finishing place apron and gloves in the waste bag.
  11. Wipe your hands thoroughly with the ant-septic wipe and place it the waste bag.
