Carpet Cleaning Tips for Pet Owners
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!
Choosing the Best Pet for your Carpet
If you are in the market for a new furry friend to join your family, the options are endless! If you are prioritizing the cleanliness of your carpet, there are definitely some pet options that are better than others. For starters, more intelligent animals, such as the following dog breeds, will help your carpets stay cleaner. Dog breeds such as German Shepherds, Labs, Collies, Poodles, and Golden Retrievers are considered the smartest and most trainable. Smarter dog breeds are easier to potty train, which is a wonderful thing for your carpets because there will likely be fewer accidents! When it comes to urine, dogs urinate in a stream so it is easier to clean. Cat sprays fan out making it more difficult to clean after. Another pet factor to consider for carpet and home cleanliness is hair. Longer-haired dogs and cats tend to shed more, so 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.
Cleaner Pets Equal Cleaner Carpets
If you already have a pet, but want to do better about keeping your home and carpets clean, it isn't too late! The first thing you can do is make sure to take them to the groomers regularly for trims to keep their fur well-maintained. Additionally, remember that a clean pet equals cleaner carpets! Prioritize bathing your furry friend regularly, whether it is by you or by the groomers. Third, both cats and dogs should be brushed several times a week to help reduce shedding and snarls that trap dirt. You can also opt to clean their paws regularly to keep your floors free from dirt and mud getting tracked in from outside. Lastly, you can even train your pets to stay off of carpet and furniture entirely to keep them in the best condition!
Pet Stain Remover
When all is said and done, spots and odors from pets are sometimes inevitable. When you consider how different carpet is from home-to-home, paired with different biological contaminants that come from pets, pet stains and spots are tricky! 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 Zerorez® professional with extensive training. If not properly treated, biological matter, such as urine, can create a breeding ground for bacteria and an unhealthy indoor environment, causing odor and discoloration in your carpet.
