How to Remove Blood from Carpet Tampa FL

This video shows you how to remove blood from carpet using one of my favorite carpet cleaning ingredients, baking soda. The example in this video focuses on how to remove a fresh or recent blood spill on the carpet. If you're looking for a way to remove dried blood from carpet you will have to add another step in the cleaning process. As a professional carpet cleaner in Tampa FL this is what I recommend.

How to Remove Blood from Carpet:

To clean fresh or still wet blood from carpet follow the instructions in this video with one small addition. Add some vinegar to the water. Adding vinegar will increase the reaction with the baking soda, creating more bubbles and generating a better cleaning agent. It will also act as a neutralizer for any bacteria in the blood. So take one cup of water and add 1/4 cup of vinegar to it and mix it up.  I would also suggest putting the water/vinegar into a spray bottle so it can be applied more evenly.

To clean dried blood in the carpet you will need to add one more step to the process. Clean the blood spot as shown in the video, with the vinegar added. You should be able to remove most of the blood that way. For the remaining spot on the carpet you can use some Hydrogen Peroxide mixed with water. One cup of water along with two tablespoons of Hydrogen Peroxide. Apply the Hydrogen Peroxide mixture to the spot with a spray bottle or a towel. After the spot has been made slightly damp let it sit for about 30 seconds then blot it dry with another towel. Most of the remaining stain should come out with the Hydrogen Peroxide mixture.  Make sure to check the color fastness of your carpet by trying all these solutions to inconspicuous area first. Hydrogen Peroxide is a bleaching agent and should not be over used in your carpet. If the blood spot still persists call a professional carpet cleaner.
