Carpet should be vacuumed and cleaned using SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo to remove, as much as possible, the petrochemical residue from the fibers. After cleaning, seal carpet with SafeChoice Carpet Seal, then allow the carpet to dry thoroughly before proceeding with application of SafeChoice Lock Out. For old carpeting follow the same procedure of vacuuming and cleaning with SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo. For carpets exceeding four years in age use of SafeChoice Carpet Seal may be optional. Carpet must be completely dry whether or not SafeChoice Carpet Seal is required.
Using a hand-held pump sprayer (similar to a garden sprayer), spray a fine mist of SafeChoice Lock Out evenly and uniformly over the entire carpet surface. Do not oversaturate. Work SafeChoice Carpet LockOut into the fibers with a rotary brush, polishing machine or clean garage broom, just enough to assure complete and uniform contact. UPON COMPLETION, CLOTH DRY FIBER TOPS TO PREVENT FORMATION OF WHITE FILM AS PRODUCT DRIES.
