Blood Stain Removal Requires Specialist Skills
Our carpet technicians are trained in the removal of blood stains from carpet, fabric, upholstery and other soft surfaces. Blood spots in the carpet can be unsightly and you’ll have some odd looks from visitors if you don’t get them out asap.
Blood stains on carpet or upholstery are one of the trickier types of stain to remove. Blood contains organic compounds such as plasma, hemoglobin (making it red) and iron making it hard to remove.
The biggest mistake we see is the owner or tenant using hot water on the blood stain to try and remove it. This has the opposite effect and ends up bonding the stain to the carpet making it all but impossible to get out even using professional chemicals.
KLEVER carries 2 specialist chemicals designed to break down the blood using enzymes that “eat” at the organic compounds in the stain.
There are 2 key factors in removing the blood from your carpet.
- The amount of blood matters. A few drops or blood that are on the surface of the carpet will be a much easier job than blood that’s had a chance to pool and sink deeper into the carpet fibres.
- Duration. It’s best to get all stains including blood, attended to as quickly as possible. Leaving any stain sit for too long make its far more difficult to break down and remove.
It’s not uncommon for heavy blood stains to disappear when cleaned, only to resurface as a ‘shadow’ in the carpet a few days later. This happens when the blood has penetrated deeply into the carpet pile. We’re able to remove all the blood we can get to, but if it’s gone below the carpet backing, the carpet acts as wick and brings it back up to the surface. We use a commercial grade acidic after spray to prevent this from happening.
Our Blood Removal Process Is As Follows…
- Assess the stain for depth and blood quantity. We also verify the type and style of carpet to ensure the right approach is used.
- Apply pre-treatment chemicals. These chemicals are designed for organic matter such as blood.
- Extract using COLD water only.
- Clean surrounding area and deodorize carpet.
- Apply acidic after spray to prevent recurrence and eliminate any small particles left behind.
