Carpet Cleaning Tips and Care Tips for Pet Owners

If you own a pet such as a dog, cat, or another animal, it's likely that there has been at least one "accident". While tiled and other types of hard flooring are easy to clean and maintain, carpeting and rugs can be more challenging to clean. Carpets with stains need high-quality cleaning equipment in order to bring them back to their original condition. Carpet care and hygiene are essential to maintaining a healthy environment in your home. This will also extend the carpet's life.

So, how is carpet care for pet households different from that of households without pets? Here are some tips on carpet care and the ways that pets can stain or cause damage to your carpets.

Carpet contamination by pets: Types


  • Contamination of urine or faeces

Carpet Cleaners Yuma can help with this type of carpet damage that many people associate with pets. Urine stains might have a strong odour, but can also smell. Although they are visible as a stain on the surface of carpets, urine can penetrate the carpet fibers and underlay and floorboards. If left to set, they become hard to remove and can develop a bad odour.

  • Weed contamination

Even though the fur isn't as long as that of longer-haired pets with shorter hairs, it can still be shed. All pets shed dander (skin), and body oils that can be absorbed into your carpet or upholstery.

  • Dirt and grass stains

Pets bring in soil, dirt, and other organic matter much easier than if they are wearing shoes. You can try wiping their paws to reduce the dirt they bring into your home but it won’t be sufficient to stop the bacteria.


Top Tips for Pet Parents with Carpets


  • Avoid putting food/water on carpets

Food and water can be kept on sealed flooring surfaces in kitchens, such as laminate or tiled floors. These floors are easier to clean, and they can be less likely of getting stains or water damage. It is a smart idea to avoid giving your pets treats if you have carpeted floors.

  • Encourage good bathroom habits

You can place absorbent carpets on your floors to teach your pet how to properly potty train them. Our 'New Arrivals' package is available for pet owners who have recently added a pet to their home.

  • Good grooming

Regular grooming of your pet will minimize the amount of shedding.

  • Professional cleanings are available

A hot water unit commercially available for pet stain removal is the most efficient way to ensure that your carpets are clean and safe. Old stains can be more difficult to remove. You should not use a strong chemical solution to stain your carpet.
