Rather than heat, I'd look at cooling between shows.
But in the end I think disinfection is an unlikely solution.
I'd focus on:
Can the set and effect be done with less than 1500 gallons of blood. And, I hope the set designers have looked at the floor loads....that's 12,000 lbs+ of liquids and doesn't include the set itself or the actors. Can the tank _look_ full? If the audience watches blood flow from other parts of the set can it be recirculated? etc.
Can the amount of blood that is actually contaminated be reduced? Designing the sets and working on blocking so that the blood the actors walk through isn't circulated with the rest of the blood.
And finally, can costumes put in some sort of waterproof barrier in the footwear and pants to reduce the contact with the skin?
Can you give us an overview of the set and scene?

That information is coming. And that's an area I know pretty well and one of my concerns.
