Sometimes you’re even left with a little souvenir on your rug. Blood stains can be some of the toughest stains to remove from a carpet. It’s easier to take it out fresh than when it’s been sitting in your upholstery for days. Even though it’s always best to call a professional like All Star Chem-Dry carpet cleaning professionals, here are a few tips and tricks that will make your carpet look new!

For The Stain You Couldn’t Stop

Pets and children are more likely to be the instigators when it comes to blood stains. Dogs unknowingly will bring in dust, dirt and blood all over their fur. Children love to play and sometimes get injured while doing all sorts of fun activities. To get rid of the stain, start by spot treating it so you can minimize the damage on your carpets until you can call a professional.

Follow These 3 Quick Steps!

  • Scrape any blood not soaked into your carpet and then apply cold water to the stained section. It’s important to only use cold water. Luke-warm water will make the stain worse. After the cold water has soaked into your carpet wait patiently. This will loosen up the dried blood.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide to create a bubbling effect. Soak a sponge with hydrogen peroxide and dab it on the stained section of your carpet. Leave it to sit for a few minutes and then soak up all the liquids with a dry rag.
  • If the hydrogen peroxide doesn’t take out the dried blood, spray the soiled section with liquid laundry detergent. Massage the detergent into the stain with your finger. After, apply cold water to the area and soak up the liquids with a dry rag.

If these tips still haven’t removed your stain give All Star Chem-Dry carpet cleaning professionals a call. The technicians are knowledgable and will assess your carpet, treat it and apply a protectant solution to keep it clean.
