Blood Stain Removal Tips

Blood Stain Removal Tips
I hope that you will not have to deal with blood stain removal from your carpets. However, if an accident happens then you will need to know how to deal with the problem.

Ideally, you will not be dealing with a severely injured person. Obviously, the carpet will have to wait!

Here are the steps for blood stain removal:
  • Rinse the spot with cold water
  • Apply a little a time so the stain does spread across the carpet
  • Do not use hot water as it could set the stain thereby making it permanent
  • Blot it up with a paper towel or cloth or shop vacuum
  • Once you have finished blotting, use a mild dish detergent diluted with cold water
  • Gently work it in so you do not spread the stain
  • Blot again with a paper towel or cloth; be careful not to rub as that could damage your carpet
  • Repeat these steps as needed
Be sure to remove all excess water so the carpet does not start to form mold or mildew. If you have a good, strong fan then turn it on and let it dry out the area. Alternatively, you can place a stack of paper towels on the stain and leave something heavy on top of the paper towels to sop up the remaining water in the carpet. These are some of the basic steps in blood stain removal.

If you happen to have an article of clothing that does not require dry cleaning and it requires blood stain removal then here are a few tips if the blood is fresh:
  • Put article in a container and pour peroxide over the spot and allow it to foam
  • Wait until foaming stops
  • If stain is still on clothing repeat these steps
  • If it is clean, rinse it with water
There are many people that swear by the soda club method of blood stain removal. Alternatively, if all other methods fail then try soda.
