The carpet in your home covers most of the interior flooring of any house. Carpets are in most bedrooms, living rooms and hallways. Carpeting is a great option for comfort and a great way to add warmth to a home. Most carpets pick up stains and spills throughout the life of the carpet and it can be hard to keep up with. When a spill happens most of the time you know about it or someone tells you when it happens. There are some stains that can sneak up on you and you may not notice right away. We are talking about pets!
Pets are a great part of any family and add love and fun. They also add to the carpet stains and dirt in several ways. One of the hardest things to clean up is urine from a dog or cat. If it is left for too long it will soak in and leave a smell that is hard to reverse. Carpet Care 2000 has some tips on how to keep your carpets clean with pets in the house.
Pet Hair & Fur: If you are a pet owner, you know that one of the biggest problems is the fur that is left on pretty much every surface in your house. It is easy to see and take care of the pet hair on your clothes or counters but the amount of fur that sticks to the carpet could be more than you thought. When fur is left on the floor it can start to buildup and become something that activates your allergies. To take care of fur that has fallen to the floor and on to the carpet, you want to use a vacuum that has a good filter and great suction. It is best to use a vacuum each day so that you don’t allow the fur to build up.
Urine: The hard part about pet urine is that pets don’t come and tell you what happened. This means that you find it by chance. When you find a stain you want to soak up whatever excess moisture there is as soon as possible. You can do this by dabbing with a cloth. The next step is to use a cleaner that you have already spot tested and don’t scrub but dab into the stain. You can allow the cleaner to sit for a few minutes before trying to soak it back up.
