If the blood on your carpet is still wet, then you'll want to take the following approach to removing the blood from your carpet.
What you'll need for wet or fresh blood on the carpet:
- Oxygen Bleach (possibly and if appropriate)
- Peroxide (possibly and if appropriate)
- Baking Soda
- A Steam Cleaner
- Boiling Water
- Shop Vacuum (optional if no steamer)
Steps to remove fresh or wet blood from carpet:
- Start by blotting the area with a damp rag or paper towel; absorbing all the excess blood stain you can.
- Apply a light layer of baking soda to the area and immediatly clean using a steam cleaner, but try and use the steam cleaner on a COLD WATER SETTING. If you don't have a steam cleaner to remove the blood stain from carpet, then proceed to the next step.
- Apply a mixture of cold water and baking soda to the effected area. Make sure to USE COLD WATER first, as hot water will cause the stain to set in.
- Vacuum the area using a wet/dry shop vacuum to remove all the water and baking soda.
- Repeat as necessary as many times as possible until the stain has been removed.
- When all cold water options have been exhausted, then use the steam cleaner on hot settings to remove the blood stain from carpet.
