Have a Pet? Here is How to Keep Your Carpet Clean!
A Parent to a Four-Legged Messy & Furry Friend?
Whether you’re a cat or a dog parent, keeping your carpet clean and tidy can be a challenge. Pets can leave behind stains, urine, as well as cause hair build up in your carpet fibers. Fortunately, at We clean your carpet, we are here to tell you that you don’t have to say goodbye to your furry friends in order to keep your carpet clean.
In this blog, we will cover a few tips on carpet cleaning that will help you keep it fresh and looking good as ever, especially with pets around!
How To Keep Your Carpet Clean When You Have Pets?
1. Get a Stain Repellent / Protection Treatment Done
Getting a stain repellent treatment done for your carpets is an excellent choice when you have pets or even toddlers. This helps by creating a protective barrier that is a part of the fibers and prevents stains from messing up your carpet. It is always best to get this done from a professional carpet cleaning company that knows just the solution to use for your carpet type and to ensure that every fiber of your carpet is treated with utmost care to maintain the structure and keep additional stains from ruining your beautiful carpet.
2. Pet Urine Stain Removal
When you have pets, these sort of things are a given and can be one of the most frustrating situations to go through. Urine spots are really hard to come off, and even if they do, it is the odor that fails to subside. It is best to clean a carpet that has pet urine as soon as possible. As soon as you see a spot, blot it with paper towels and then apply 3% hydrogen peroxide (and don’t worry, man-made carpets will not get ruined by this method). Again repeat it until the spot is dry. This will ensure that the urine is pulled up until your professional carpet cleaner is on their way to perform a cleaning. At Wir inkl. We clean your carpet, we make sure that it is not just the urine stain but also the odor that gets removed for a home that always smells great.
3. Make Sure You Trim Your Pet’s Nails
Sharp nails of a pet (depending on what length they are) can damage carpets. As pets have a tendency to scratch on surfaces when they get excited, it can lead to loosening of your carpet strands. Trimming your pet’s nails not only safeguards your carpet from damage but also protects your hardwood flooring.
4. Vacuum, Twice a Week
Even if your pet doesn’t go through the shedding more often, it can still cause dander, ie shedding of microscopic flecks of skin that can cause allergies. Dander can also cause your carpet to have an odor. To prevent this from happening, you need to get your carpet vacuum cleaned, at least twice a week. Also, don’t forget to move the furniture around, so you vacuum every spot. This will not only prolong the life of your carpet but also remove any particles stuck in the fibers, thus preventing further damage.
5. Disinfect your Carpet by Steam Cleaning
Getting your carpet steam cleaned often gets rid of any dander, pet hair or even saliva that might have got embedded or stuck deep within your carpet. Premature wear of the carpet fibers is also prevented as contaminants are removed.
There are numerous ways one can take care of their carpet when they have pets, such as the few we have stated in this blog. Maintaining the cleanliness of your carpet shows the pride you take in keeping your home a welcoming as well as a happier and healthier place to live for yourself, your family and your pets! The best route to get your carpets cleaned amazingly is to give the job to a professional carpet cleaning company that can get rid of a wide range of issues such as stains, urine as well as hair that come with owning a pet.
