How to Get Blood Out of Carpet

Key Points


  1. Unique Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator is completely safe for your pet. It contains no harmful chemicals or unsafe additives! All our ingredients come directly from nature and work to remove stains and odors in a safe manner using bacteria and enzymes.
  2. The first step in removing a blood stain is to identify the effected area. This can sometimes be a larger area than you might first suspect!
  3. Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator concentrate will need to be diluted before use. Water activates the bacteria in the product, allowing it to work effectively. You can also choose to purchase the pre-diluted version of the product, Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator Ready-to-Use. 
  4. Saturating the stain with plenty of water helps to make sure that you don’t miss any of the stain. It also ensures that the product penetrates all the way through the carpet and the pad. 
  5. Agitation (using the bottom of your Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator bottle) helps to drive the product all the way through the carpet and into the pad, making sure that it reaches the entire stain.
  6. After agitation, we recommend that you cover the stain with a damp white or cream colored towel and leave it for 6-8 hours. After this treatment period, remove the towel and allow the area to air dry. Enjoy your stain-free carpet!

Despite how yucky a topic like this might sound at first glance, many pet owners nevertheless run into situations where their furry friend deposits some red-colored DNA into the carpet. This can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, pets’ toenails are clipped too short, resulting in bleeding. Other times, as cat owners can attest, their fluffy feline will bring in a potential dinner and soil up the carpet in the process. Regardless of the reason, the question most people have is, “How do I remove the blood?”


Well today we will answer this question the Unique way, showing you how to completely remove blood stains from carpet using Unique Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator!

Safety First

Before we get started, it’s good to know that Unique Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator is completely safe for you and your pet! None of our products (including Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator) contain caustic chemicals or overpowering fragrances. Instead, we use direct-from-nature ingredients, most notably, aerobic bacteria and enzymes. When they work together with enzymes, aerobic bacteria (which release only carbon dioxide and water as they break down pet stains) are an excellent odor eliminator. 

Now that we’ve established that Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator will not harm your pet in any way, let’s jump into the steps you’ll need to take to remove that blood stain!

Identify the Effected Area

The first step in removing a blood stain from your carpet is to identify the effected area. A lot of the time, the stained area is actually larger than you might initially think. As is the case when a pet’s toenails bleed, a pet will trek around and leave blood stains in quite a few locations. It’s best to identify all of these before moving on to the next step. 

Prepare Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator

Before you can remove that pesky blood stain, you’ll first have to get Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator ready to apply. We do not recommend that you use the concentrated version of this product without diluting it with water. The bacteria contained in the product need water to activate them, and water helps the bacteria to survive. 

We recommend that you add water to Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator concentrate according to the prescribed dosage amount. For example, a 4 ounce bottle of Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator will make 1 quart of usable product!

If you don’t want to mix Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator yourself, you can always purchase the pre-diluted, ready-to-use version of the product, which can be found here

Saturate the Stain

After you’ve diluted Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator or purchased the ready-to-use version, you’re ready to start cleaning the stain! Pour the product onto the effected area, making sure to saturate it. This is a crucial step. You want to ensure that the product penetrates all the way through the carpet and into the pad. Some blood may have seeped down to this level, and you’ll want to make sure you remove it as well! 

Agitate the Area

The agitation step might seem unnecessary at first, but in order for Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator to penetrate all the way through the carpet and the pad, getting to the heart of the blood stain, you’ll need to agitate the area! This is relatively easy. Simply use the bottom of your Pet Odor and Stain Eliminator bottle to scrub the carpet over the effected area. If you’d like, wearing gloves during this step can be very helpful!

Cover With a Damp Towel

Next, lay a white or cream colored damp towel over the stain and let sit for 6-8 hours. Using a white or cream towel is important because a colored towel may bleed into the carpet. After the treatment period, remove the towel and let the area air dry. Your stain should be completely removed—it’s that easy!

My dog loved his bones, and they were great for his health, but that blood, marrow, and other “bone stuff” wasn’t fun to clean up!
