Carpet cleaning tips for living with your dog.

  1. Dog hair and fur cause problems in your carpets if allowed to build up. Frequently vacuum your carpets, especially where your dog sleeps and spends most of his time. If you do not remove the fur it will build up in the pile of the carpet, this becomes a big problem because it then can not be removed by carpet cleaning alone. Having an annual deep steam clean will also prevent build up where your domestic vacuum cleaner can’t reach into the pile of your carpet. If the hair and fur is not removed it will wear away your carpets, causing them to age prematurely.
  1. Don’t ignore pet urine as even though it looks dry, it can stay wet under your carpet and into the underlay which can cause a lot of damage. You need to mop up pet urine as soon as possible so it doesn’t soak into your carpet. Blot up with a paper towel as much as you can then clean with cold water. If this is more than a one off accident, you really need to call a professional carpet cleaner to make you’re there is no ongoing damage to your carpets, underlay or the floor boards under the carpet.
  1. Having a dog in the house will cause your carpet to smell over time. The real problem is you won’t smell it, but your guests will. Having a deodorising treatment applied to your carpet is the perfect solution, this can be done with your carpet clean and will neutralise any objectionable odours.

You can have your dog and carpets too, just follow these few simple tips and everyone will live happily together.
