The most important thing to remember when getting blood out of carpet is to clean it right away. It is much easier to remove a wet blood stain than once it has dried into the carpet. Blood stains are one of the most challenging stains to remove. Here are a few tips from Andrews Carpet Cleaning in Tyler, Texas to share with you on the removal of blood stains in carpet.
First, rinse the stain with cold water. Use a clean white towel to blot the stain. Never rub the stain as this will only push it deeper into the carpet fibers. Keep blotting with your towel until you do not see anymore residue transferring from the carpet to the towel.
Mix a solution of 1 tbsp. amonia with 1 cup of cold water. Saturate the blood stain with the amonia solution, wait a few minutes for the solution to absorb. Then blot the carpet with a clean dry towel. Keep blotting until all the stain is removed.
If the amonia solution does not work , try using club soda to remove any portion of the stain that is still left on the carpet.
If this method does not remove the stain entirely call your local carpet cleaning professional, Andrews Carpet Cleaning in Tyler, Texas to assist in removing the blood stain from your carpet.
