Why a Carpet Cleaner Company can’t Clean Blood from Carpet

September 20, 2017

When it comes to blood cleanup, many people underestimate the amount of work and equipment it takes to properly remove it. Even small amounts of blood in the porous material is a biohazard. It may seem that a big-name carpet cleaner company is the right way to go but that is never the case when it comes to blood cleanup. The large name companies don’t have to train, proprietary equipment or proper know-hows to fully remove blood and the risks associated with it. When you need blood removed, call a local professional. Spaulding Decon, Fort Lauderdale has the training, tools, and business knowledge needed to make sure your space is habitable again.

A typical carpet cleaning machine – used by standard carpet cleaning companies use either a steam method or a shampooing method. While both may sound like they work, neither is able to remove all the blood properly from my carpet. A steamer attempts to use the heat of steam to kill bacteria and then vacuums up the excess water and remains from the carpet. The shampooing method machines do just what it sounds like – shampoos the carpet. The problem with this method, the cleaners are pushing the blood deeper into the carpet and into the subflooring. When it comes time to vacuum it up, the vacuum removes the top layer of detergent and maybe some blood, but most of it will be too deep to reach.

With both these techniques, there is blood left behind on the floor. Though the carpet may appear clean, the blood is just embedded deeper in the carpet. Eventually, the blood will bubble back up through the carpet and stain it again. In the meantime, it will begin to decompose and start to smell. Many times this is even worse when the carpet should’ve been removed. Blood can carry pathogens that are dangerous to your health and the carpet should have been removed.
