Decorator did not have any better ideas other than suggested above, except if dried in little hard lumps, using a stanley knife to shave off the tops of the pile is the only solution . not too deep mind you

And to be honest it doesn't cost much more to rip up old floorboards and put nice new ones down that can then be varnished.

If the paint is only speckles, them put a comb into the affected pile and use a new disposable razor to shave off the affected pile......this is if the solvents do not work and you don't trust yourself with a stanley knife.

The comb will make sure that the lower part of the pile (that is unaffected) will be protected.
I'm not sure that my explanation is all that clear.

Re: whats gets paint out of carpet ?

Try putting them things you use for a cooler boy on it so zt freezes the paint right through.Then use a nail brush to brush it off.When the paint is hard it lets itself get rubbed off easier.Done it on some clothes and it worked not leaving a stain.As soon as i got the paint off i washed straight away.
