How to remove blood stains from carpet?
Accidents happen at home unexpectedly. It can be a bruise from knocking into your favorite couch, a small paper cut or a cut leading to bleeding. When bleeding happens, more than often, the blood will stain your carpet or fabric sofa. Here’s some tip on how to remove blood stains from your carpet/sofa.
Before you decide to engage professional for help, you can try the self-help stain removal steps below:
- Act fast, the longer the blood stain stays in your carpet or sofa; the harder it is to remove it.
- Brush the blood stain with a gentle brush to loosen the dry blood particles. Do this with a steel brush.
- If the blood stain is still wet, use a dry paper (kitchen towel) to blot the affected area to reduce or remove the blood. Do not scrub, gently blot.
- Dilute a small amount of detergent with water and wet a clean white cloth with this mixture.
- Blot directly to this blood stain spot repeatedly and wet the cloth when necessary. (This step should remove most of the stain).
- If step 5 cannot fully remove the stains, try diluted ammonia solution.
- Dilute the ammonia in 1:10 portion with warm water.
Repeat step 5 using the diluted ammonia until the ammonia solution is fully absorbed into the blood stain.
- Use a slightly wet sponge to blot on the treated stain spot till dry.
If all the above fail to remove the blood stain, you can consider seeking carpet cleaning professionals at 98860178 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org (www.artofcleaning.com.sg).
- Reminder: the faster you wash your stained carpet, the higher the chance for the stain to be fully removed.
