Default HELP!, Nitro Fuel on wall and carpet.

Hi, around 30mins ago my friend was filling his fuel bottle for the first time and didnt know how to properly do it, and he sprayed nitro all over my desk, walls and carpet. The carpet is dry, and ive wiped off the desk and walls with a moist cloth twice. in light, you can still see the nitro drops on the walls but is otherwise dry.

Now my question is, should i clean it more in depth or should it be fine as is. Im just gonna leave the carpet and use our carpet cleaner sometime this week on it.

Im not exactly a nitro noob, but is there a chance that static on carpet could ignite the nitro, or somehow anything mentioned above ignite?

It won't burn instantly.

The alcohol will dry and and there will be just oil left.

It will eat the finish off of nice wood tables very fast. (almost instantly)

My buddy Ron told his wife he spilled Coke on the table and it ate the finish off. I didn't know his Serpent Impact had Coke in the tank.
