I have a £60k content insurance but they treat this as an incident claim and I don't have a incident insurance so not cover.

you want to clean the carpet off spilled emulsion paint!!!!

you need to scrape up as much as possible
lay a thick dust sheet on top roll the carpet back scrape up any underneath lay a bit off plastic ontop off the underlay with a thick dust sheet/old towel

roll the carpet back flat and try removing the paint with a sponge wet the area then hoover with your wet and dry cleaner keep repeating this prosess untill clean place a new thick dust sheet/towel on top then roll back and repeat underneath
replace the towel/sheet underneath roll out flat again and wet and remove any more traces

or if you are fully insured pay the excess and claim :D

Always pays to read the small print on cheap insurance, especially quotes from “on line” price comparison sites; they keep the premiums low by exclusions & restricting cover. Depending on your personal circumstances, you may also find that £60k contents is nowhere near enough; list all your contents & their replacement value on a spread sheet, many will be in for a shock! ;)
