Blood Stains in Carpets
Blood can be one of the most difficult staining substances to remove, and it can cause considerable damage to your carpets and floors, especially when allowed to dry. Being comprised of iron and proteins, blood coagulates as it dries, bonding with the fibers in your carpet and making it exceptionally difficult to remove. Plenty of home remedies exist for removing these stains, but it is likely that professional cleaning may become necessary.
If you or someone you know has blood stains in your carpet or upholstery, our team of experienced cleaning professionals may be able to help. Contact the Austin carpet cleaning specialists of WOW Total Cleaning today at 512-291-0048 to discuss your cleaning needs with a trained member of our professional staff.
Tips for Cleaning Blood From Carpets
The key to effectively removing a blood stain is treating the stain immediately, before it has had an opportunity to dry. After an accident, follow these steps to quickly and effectively remove the stain:
- Dampen a cloth with cold water and blot the stain to sop up any excess blood from the carpet.
- Mix a 1 tbsp to 2 cups solution of liquid dishwashing detergent with cold water, and sponge the stain with a clean white cloth, then blot the solution out of the carpet. Repeat until the stain is no longer being absorbed onto your cloth.
- If the stain persists, move on to an ammonia solution of 1 tbsp ammonia to ½ cup warm water, and repeat the process.
- Finish the process by sponging and blotting with cold water.
For severe stains or dried blood, even an ammonia solution may be unable to remove the stain, and professional care may be necessary.

- Extremely professional company! The crew did a phenomenal job today on our ceramic tile floor, getting rid of the wax, steaming, and polishing the floors! It was a long job but they left our floors immaculate! The front desk, Ivy, gave us updates on when they would arrive and communicated with us on any changes in their schedule. I highly recommend this company, and we will definitely use them again!!!
- We just had our tile flooring thoroughly stripped and cleaned. They did an amazing job and me and my husband are very pleased. They worked very hard and took almost no breaks. They arrived on time and the staff were extremely professional, respectful, and pleasant. I wish we knew about them before. We would have used them yearly. I highly recommend their service. They are a bit pricey but well worth every dime as they will leave your house immaculate. We will recommend them to all our neighborhood. It is rare to get such stellar service. We look forward to using them soon.
- I called Wow Total Cleaning's Emergency Hotline and the owner Gustavo immediately picked up. It wasn't some calling center that I had to wait for, it was a direct line to his cell phone which I really appreciated. They offered to come immediately in the middle of the night, but I was working with the insurance claims and so we started first thing the next morning.
- While on a 3 week vacation we had WOW come to our 4200 SQFT house and what can I say.............INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!! Even the Schmootz in the corners that accumulates was REMOVED!

- They did a fantastic job and were very professional. You could tell that they did it (and did it well) because they actually cared about helping more that just the money. They answered all our calls and were quick to get there after we first called them. Our house flooded, and they were quick and compassionate in their work to extract the water and take out damaged carpet and ceiling. I definitely recommend them.
