Stain Removal Tips From PetSafe Vancouver Carpet And Upholstery Cleaning

Oh no! If there’s anything worse than getting a bad cut or injury, it’s finding out after that blood has stained your carpet or upholstery.
Thankfully PetSafe Vancouver Carpet Cleaning Service has some tips and tricks to remove fresh or dried blood stains from your carpet, fabric and upholstery. And the best part is that you probably have everything you need right at home already.
Follow PetSafe Carpet Cleaning Vancouver’s step-by-step instructions to remove blood stains from your carpet and upholstery below. Keep in mind time is a factor, and you will want to act quickly for the best results.

  1. If the blood has dried, use a brush or something similar to loosen the stain without damaging the fabric.
  2.  Fill a bowl with two cups of COLD water, then mix in 1 tsp of dishwashing detergent.
  3.  Take a clean white cloth or rag and dip it into the soapy solution you just mixed.
  4.  Blot directly onto the blood stain and repeat until the stain has disappeared.

If this does not work to clean all the blood off your carpet or upholstery, follow these steps instead.

  1. Mix 1 tsp of ammonia with 1/2 cup of WARM water.
  2. Use a sponge or cloth and dip it into the solution. Then TEST the solution on a non-visible or inconspicuous part of the carpet or upholstery to ensure the solution does not damage the fabric.
  3. After waiting a few minutes to make sure no damage has occurred, use the cloth or sponge and directly apply the ammonia solution to the blood stain.
  4. Have a bowl of plain cold water ready for rinsing.
  5. After applying the ammonia solution to the blood, use a separate sponge, dip it into the clean water and apply to the stain, then blot dry.

If a more natural cleaning approach is more to your liking, and you prefer not to use chemicals or detergents, Follow PetSafe Vancouver Carpet Cleaning tips below.

  1. Fill a spray bottle with cold water.
  2. Spray the blood stain with the cold water.
  3. If the stain is big, spray from the outside and work your way inward. This method will prevent the blood from spreading and bleeding out onto a larger area of the carpet.
  4. Use a wet/dry vacuum to suck out the remaining moisture. If a wet/dry vac is not available, use a dry towel to blot the stain.
  5. Repeat steps 1-4 until blood stains disappear.
  6. To dry the area faster, point a fan directly onto the stain.

frequently Asked Questions

Of course not!  We are happy to clean any carpet. In fact homes with pets are sometimes in the worst condition, which makes us better suited for any job you can throw at us.

We ask that you remove as much small furniture and clutter off the floor before our arrival.  Remove any breakables off shelves that may be in the technicians way. It may also be a good idea also to give it a quick vacuum if there is a lot of debris. Don’t worry about moving your sofas, we will be happy to do that for you.

All carpet takes different amounts of time to dry depending on type and fabric and type of cleaning required but generally between 3-10 hours. 

A single area in the home includes a bedroom, hallway, sitting room, dining room or up to 14 steps. Living room / Dining room combos, rec rooms or great rooms are considered as 2 areas. 

Sorry rooms cannot be combined. Rooms with furniture and hallways can actually be more time consuming than larger areas because the dirt and soil tend to build up a lot heavier over the high traffic areas. Plus with furniture in the room we have a lot more edging to do and moving and putting furniture on protective padding.

Yes and no. We are happy to move things like sofas, coffee tables, and small furniture. Plus anything we move is placed under protective  blocks or pads. Items we do not move under any circumstances are beds, dressers, electronics, china cabinets or any other large heavy items.

PetSafe or no other carpet cleaner can ethically guarantee 100% stain or smell removal. We are trained in a variety of methods and solutions and will try to do our best, but factors such as how long the stain has been there?, is problem in the underlay?, type of carpet?, age? Also if the carpet has been protected in the past can play a huge role if a stain is removable or not. But we do have a policy that if you pay for a specialty spot removal and we cannot remove the stain you will not be charged for that service.

PetSafe stands behind our work and offers a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If there is a concern with any part of your cleaning we will be happy to come back and reattempt any areas free of charge.
