This question already has an answer here:

Was the blood that was sprinkled on the Ark on Yom Kippur allowed to dry and accumulate through the centuries, or was there a provision for cleaning the Holy of Holies and the Ark in particular?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • Ken, welcome to Mi Yodeya, and thanks for bringing this interesting question here! As @sabbahillel pointed out, pretty much the same question was recently asked and answered here, so this question will likely be designated a duplicate of that one. This is great, since people who search Google using terminology similar to yours will now be more likely to find the material. I hope you'll look around at some of our other beis-hamikdash Q&As and keep posting. – Isaac Moses Mar 6 '16 at 3:05
