Blood stains on carpet are not a common sight but it happens from time to time. Stains cannot be avoided. All you can do is to remove them immediately so that they do not set in carpet. Here an easy method of removing blood stains is given:

  • If blood stain has not dried out yet then blot it away immediately. Remember that longer the blood remains on carpet, tougher it would be. So use tissues or paper towels to blot blood from carpet. Just try to blot the blood. Do not wipe it as it will spread the stain and make it difficult to clean. Begin blotting at the outer edges of stain and then working area around stain, move towards its center. Never push too hard while blotting as it will push blood deeper into carpet. When a tissue soaks up enough blood, replace it to have a better cleaning.
  • Now use a damp cloth to rinse out affected area. For rinsing blood stains, nothing is better and perfect than water. Always use cold water to rinse blood stains because warm water will make stain tough. Blood is primarily a protein and hot water will make it hard. After rinsing, use the above method to blot excessive moisture. If you have a wet vacuum cleaner, use it to suck up water from carpet. If you do not have vacuum, then use old towel for this. Keep washing the carpet and blotting the water until blood stains are removed.
  • If blood stain is really tough and still visible then use a solution of water and ammonia to remove blood stains. Take 1 tablespoon of ammonia and dilute it in one cup of water. Spray this solution on blood stains. After that, you can blot this solution.
  • If ammonia is not available, use dish-washing soap or a laundry cleaner. Use your fingers to rub soap solution on stains but take care not to spread the stain. After several minutes, scrub stains with sponge.
  • The last step is to dry the carpet. Cover the wet area of carpet where there was stain with a rag. Turn on the fans and keep on blotting until carpet becomes dry.

Use these tips to remove blood stains from carpet. In case you are unable to remove blood stains, you should hire professional services.

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something that I feel I’d by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very wide for me. I am taking a look forward in your subsequent publish, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!
