You may follow the below steps for removing blood from carpet: Step 1: Fill a spray bottle with cold water. Spray the wet blood area repeatedly. Step 2: Dab it dry using a cotton towel. Be sure to blot the affected area, rather than rub it. Step 3: Repeat these steps until the wet blood disappears. Allow it to air dry or use a wet vac to dry the area.

Mix one tablespoon of scent-free liquid hand dishwashing detergent with two cups of cold water. Using a clean white cloth, sponge the stain with the detergent solution.

Cleaning blood from a carpet can be challenging, but it's important to address the issue properly to ensure it doesn't return. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you remove blood stains from a carpet effectively:

Act Quickly: The sooner you address a bloodstain, the easier it will be to remove. Blot up as much of the fresh blood as possible using a clean, white cloth or paper towels. Do not rub the stain, as this can push it deeper into the carpet fibers.

Prepare a Cleaning Solution: Mix a solution of cold water and mild dishwashing detergent. You can also use a specialized carpet cleaner designed for removing organic stains. Make sure the detergent is mild and doesn't contain bleach or any strong chemicals.

Test in an Inconspicuous Area: Before applying the cleaning solution to the stained area, test it in an inconspicuous corner of the carpet to ensure it doesn't cause any color or texture damage.

Apply the Cleaning Solution: Gently apply the cleaning solution to the bloodstain using a clean cloth or sponge. Blot, don't rub, the stain, working from the outer edges toward the center to prevent spreading.

Rinse with Cold Water: After the stain starts to lift, rinse the area with cold water to remove any remaining detergent. Blot the area again to remove excess moisture.

Use Hydrogen Peroxide (if necessary): If the stain persists, you can try using hydrogen peroxide. Apply a small amount (3% concentration) to the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, and then blot it up. Test this on an inconspicuous area first, as hydrogen peroxide can lighten the carpet color.

Repeat as Needed: You may need to repeat the cleaning process several times until the stain is completely gone.

Dry Thoroughly: Ensure the carpet is thoroughly dried to prevent mold or mildew growth. Use fans or open windows to speed up the drying process.

If the bloodstain keeps returning, it's possible that there is still some residue left deep in the carpet fibers. In this case, you may want to consider professional carpet cleaning services. They have specialized equipment and cleaning agents that can penetrate deep into the carpet to remove stubborn stains.

We always make sure to ask the customer beforehand if there are any stains that need addressing before we book the job. Always make sure you have plenty of spot removal products. The worst case scenario is arriving at a job and not having the proper product or know-how to remove the stain.

Good Luck!
