How To Remove Broken Glass from Carpet

With the correct equipment and methods, you can safely and effectively remove shattered glass from your carpet. The procedure is as follows:

  • First things first: put on some gloves to protect your hands from injuries and a mask to keep any glass shards from entering your lungs.
  • Clean the area by sucking up any large shards of glass with a vacuum cleaner. The vacuum could be damaged if you accidentally sucked up any tiny pieces.
  • Find every shard: If you want to be very sure that you’ve gotten rid of every shard of glass, you can use a flashlight to track down any tidbits that the vacuum might have missed.
  • Once you’ve located all the shards, you can pick them up with a roll of tape. This will lessen the likelihood that the pieces may shatter and disperse across the floor.
  • After picking up all the shards of glass you’re gonna wanna wash the area off with a cloth or sponge drenched in warm water and a little soap. Do not soak the carpet; instead, blot up the excess liquid.
  • After cleaning, blot the carpet with a dry cloth or paper towels to remove any remaining moisture. Let the spot air dry completely.
  • Inspect the area once the carpet is dry to be sure you got rid of all the shards of glass.
  • In conclusion, cleaning up glass from carpet is a tedious chore, but it can be accomplished successfully with time and effort. Seek the assistance of a professional cleaner if you have any doubts or if the glass pieces are too difficult to remove.
