21 Feb How Pet Owners Can Care For Their Carpets
If you own a cat, dog or house rabbit, it’s likely there has been at least one ‘accident’ in the home. Tiled flooring or vinyl flooring is an easier option for pet owners. It just requires a quick wipe up with a cloth and a quick clean with some detergent. However, pet owners can still enjoy the luxury of carpets, they just need to be a little more careful.
If the carpet is heavily soiled because of pet accidents, you may want to call in the carpet cleaning professionals to get your carpet and upholstery looking as good as new again.
In this blog post we share some tips for how pet owners can care for their carpets. Check out our tips below to see how you can better care for the carpets in your home. By following these tips, your carpets will look better for longer. You’ll extend the longevity of your carpets, rugs and upholstery too.
Food and Water
Avoid putting food and water bowled on your carpets. We would recommend these bowls either go on tiled or laminate flooring so they can be quickly wiped away. Alternatively, use a large mat so spillages are kept on the mat, and not on the carpeted areas. If you give your pets treats, try and keep this to non-carpeted areas of your home too.
From the moment you get your new pet, encourage good bathroom habits. Put out absorbent mats on your carpet until your pet knows where to go to the toilet, or to signal it needs to toilet. Speak to a professional vet or the person you are buying the pet off. They will be able to give you tips and pointers to toilet train your new pet.
If you have a pet with fur, it will shed this fur. It can feel like their fur gets everywhere. By practising good grooming with your pet, on a regular basis, this can minimise the amount of shedding in the home. This will help reduce pet fur and dander across your home and protect your carpet as well as your upholstery.
If you really want to care for our carpet, then why not book a regular professional carpet clean. This ensures that your carpet is safe and hygienic for your furry friends, and any accidents can be removed. This will help make your carpets look, smell and feel fresher. It will also extend the lifespan of your carpets as pet accidents, dander, food and fur are not trodden in.
