Answer

If you’ve been unlucky enough to get lily pollen on your carpet be very careful not to press it into the carpet fibres.  Also, don’t let the pollen get wet!

Grab a roll of sticky tape and gently place it over the pollen.  The pollen will stick to the tape.  Using a new piece of tape every time, continue with this until all the pollen is removed.

You can prevent it happening again by snipping out the stamens of the lily before it comes into full bloom.  Catch them on a plate or similar and dispose of them, better safe than sorry.

If the above procedure hasn’t completely removed the pollen we may be able to help.  We have a specialist product for Lily pollen, but it’s not 100% guaranteed to work.  If you’ve not got all the pollen all out we’d recommend you contact your contents insurer and see if you have Accidental Damage cover.  If you do they may pay for us to come and attempt the specialist removal.  If we can’t remove it we’ll supply a letter to your insurer confirming that for you.
