Carpet Cleaning 101 for Pet Owners
The Difficulty of Keeping Carpet Clean with Pets
When you have a dog or cat, keeping your carpets clean can sometimes be a difficult task. Pets have accidents, track in mud, and leave hair in your carpet that can cause allergies. But no matter how messy your little furball is, we know that you still love your pet! So is it possible to have the best of both worlds: clean carpets and a messy pet? Having clean carpets and a pet is possible if you are willing to put in the work. Here are some tips on how you can best take care of your carpets when they receive too much love from your pets!
A Cleaner Pet Equals Cleaner Carpet
There are all types of dogs, cats, and other pets to choose from. If you are among the 73% of pet owners who choose to have a dog, you know that some dogs are naturally going to leave your house cleaner because they do not shed (or do not shed much). The cleanest dogs out there when it comes to shedding are the Tibetian Terrier, the Maltese Terrier, the Shih Tzu, the Portuguese Water Dog, and the Poodle. Aside from shedding, some dogs are naturally smart. Dogs with high intelligence include the Border Collie, the Poodle, the German Shepherd, The Golden Retriever, and the Doberman Pinscher. Intelligent dogs are easier to train; therefore, they will likely have fewer accidents on the carpet. If you are considering adding a new little furball to your family and are also concerned about keeping a clean house, you may consider getting a pet that sheds minimally and is easy to train.
No matter what kind of dog or cat you have, there are quite a few things that you can do to keep your pet cleaner. These things include:
Giving your pet a regular bath to clean off all the nasties they are carrying around from outside before they get comfy on your carpet
Brushing your pet to reduce shedding and remove dead skin
Groom your pet regularly
Keep your pet off the carpet. This could mean making their bed in an area with wood or tile floors instead of carpet.
Clip your pet's nails as often as recommended to keep them from snagging your carpet
Wipe off your pet's paws before letting them into the house
Cleaning Up After Pet Stains and Odor
