Blood stains in carpet, rugs, and upholstery are easily removed
While there are a lot of DIY methods for cleaning up a blood stain in carpet, we really recommend seeking professional cleaning services. Without the proper equipment, cleaning solutions, training, and experience a small situation can become a big problem, fast.
What if I want to try to remove the blood stain myself?
Assume all risk and that our advisement is to leave it to the professionals. We’re not saying you can’t, but we just would rather relieve ourselves from responsibility if it doesn’t pan out for you.
Anytime you are treating a spot, remember:
- Always use a clean white cloth.
- Don’t use too much soap/cleaner.
- Blot, never rub the spot.
- Always work the spot from the outside-in.
- Water works more often than anything. Try blotting with a plain damp white cloth.
Make a standard cleaning solution
- If the stain is crusty dry, then try to break it up as gently as possible – as to not damage the carpet fibers. Back of a spoon, wooden popsicle stick, or something similar will work great.
- Mix 1-teaspoon of dish detergent with 2-3 cups of cold water.
- Dip a small portion of a clean white cloth into the water mixture.
- Blot the blood stain from the outside-in, repeatedly. Rotate the cloth to a new, clean area each time.
- Repeat steps 3-4.
