We understand that your family's pet can be your best friend but your carpet's worst enemy. Dealing with pet odor issues and stains can be tricky! The number one complaint we receive from pet owners is, "How do we get pet smells out of our homes?" Sometimes these messes may cause you to feel forced to choose between your pet or your carpet. Luckily for you, we have compiled some tips to help you have the best of both worlds!
1- Choosing the Best Pet for Your Carpet
If you are in the market for a new dog or cat for your home, there are many options to choose from! If you prioritizing your carpets, there are many different breeds that will help your carpets be cleaner. Opting for more intelligent dogs can be beneficial for your carpets. Smarter dog breeds are easier to potty train, which is a wonderful thing for your carpets because there will likely be fewer accidents! Breeds such as Collies, Poodles, German Shepherds, Labs, and Golden Retrievers are considered the smartest of the bunch. Second, remember that longer-haired dogs and cats shed more. Choosing breeds that have shorter fur and/or are hypoallergenic will make a huge difference when it comes to keeping your carpet and home clean from hair and fur.
2- Cleaner Pets Equal Cleaner Carpets
If you already have a pet but still want to help keep your carpets clean, it is not too late! There are several things you can do! First, take them to the groomers for trims regularly. Second, whether it is done by yourself or the groomers, bathing your dog should be a high priority. Third, both cats and dogs should be brushed several times a week to help reduce shedding. Regular brushing also helps reduce snarls that can trap dirt and other nasties. Fourth, you can opt to clean your pets' paws and claws regularly to reduce the amount of dirt getting tracked inside the house. Fifth, if you want to get extra serious, you can train your pets to stay off your furniture and carpet completely.
3- Pet Stain Remover
It is no secret that pets and carpets do not mix well. That being said, pet stains are inevitable! When attempting to clean or treat a stain, you need to consider the material, density, texture, padding, and solubility of your carpet. On top of that, pet stains can be made from many different types of biological contaminants such as urine, feces, blood, and vomit. No pet stain is the same, and they must be treated very differently. Cleaning pet stains and odors are not as simple as spraying your store-bought or DIY pet stain remover. In order for the problem to be solved, it requires a professional with extensive training.
