Carpet Cleaning Tips
Avoid feeding your pets on the carpet. Food and water bowls, as well as snacks should ideally not be given on any carpet. Starting good habits with this is a great way to build boundaries with your pet. Food can easily stain your carpet and water damage can create other issues for carpet fibres.
Encourage positive bathroom habits. Pets are quick to learn. With appropriate training, they will quickly identify not to go to the bathroom within your home. If you have a young pet, then it may be a good idea to use absorbent mats or even carpet protection until you are confident, they will not have an accident.
A regular grooming routine is a really great idea. It will minimise your pet from shedding on the carpet. Furthermore, it will remove all dirt, sand and particles in their fur. It is impossible to remove it entirely, but washing and grooming will reduce the impact. Oils on your pets fur and skin aren’t particularly good for carpets so this will also help.
Ask for the help of a local professional carpet cleaner. We use high powered and intensive hot water cleaning systems.
