Our experts will use 5 different ways of removing blood stains from carpets.
Way 1: Using cold water: Our experts will be able to remove the bloodstains from your carpet with the use of cold water, more so if the stain is fresh. In this method, our experts will fill up a spray bottle with cold water, (cold means…cold!).
Now, they will spray the water on the stain and then would wipe the entire area with the use of a dry, clean towel or a moist vac. They will repeat this procedure quite a few times, till the stain is completely removed. Once done, our experts will steam clean the area thoroughly till the moisture is gone completely. And lastly, they will use a hair drier or a similar device to dry out the area.
Way 2: Using detergent and water: When it comes to treating a dried out bloodstain, our carpet cleaning experts in Brisbane would prefer using a solution containing cold water and liquid dish-washing detergent. They will thoroughly soak a clean, white piece of cloth in the solution, and apply that solution to the stain comprehensively. Once done, they will simply scrub the stained area with the help of an old toothbrush, and then use a moist cloth rinsing and blotting the area.
Way 3: Using Ammonia and water: This is another very effective way of removing blood stains from the carpet, provided the carpet is NOT woollen. For woollen carpets, this method is a strict NO-NO!! Our carpet cleaners in Brisbane would mix two tablespoons of ammonia in a spray bottle full of water. Now they will spray the solution on the stain and wait for about 5 to 10 minutes. Now, they will use a clean rug, to blot the spot and then dry it out by blowing hot air from a hairdryer.
Way 4: Using Salt Paste: Another extremely effective method that we use is using salt paste. Our experts, using carpet cleaning services in Brisbane would put some cold water in a bucket, and add enough salt, which will create a thin salty paste. Thereafter, the paste is applied to the stain, and the paste is then left to sit on the stain for about 10 minutes. After that, our experts will blot the stain till it is entirely gone.
Way 5: Using H2O2: Using Hydrogen Peroxide is another extremely effective way that our professional carpet cleaners would adopt, to clean your bloody carpet. They will moisten the stained spot, with the use of Hydrogen Peroxide, before they allow it to stand for about 30 minutes or so. They will repeat the procedure till the entire stain is gone.
