The longer the delay, the more difficult it becomes to remove any carpet stain and there is no stain-resistant carpet yet. With the blood, the clotting process makes it particularly difficult to remove the stain if it is old and dried.
How to remove blood stains from the carpet
1. Rinse and extract the blood stain with cold water. Apply just a little at a time so as not to spread the stain. Hot water can fix the stain, making it permanent, so only use cold water.
Add the water, then wipe it off with a clean white cloth or white paper towels. You can also aspirate the solution with a shop vacuum, which means less chance of spilling the stain.
2. Remove the remaining stain with a solution of a few drops of Dawn Dish Detergent in a cup of cold water. Bring it into the blood stain, but be careful not to smear the stain.
