If you are fortunate enough to have pets then you'll know, as lovely as they can be, they can at times cause your carpets some unwanted stress. Whether it's a small accident or a spread of fur across the surface of your carpets and sofas, they will inevitably cause one problem or another.
Using the following advice from Paramount Cleaning Company, you will be in a position to help your carpets live that little bit longer.
Consider your pets when buying a new carpet
If you have yet to buy your lovely new carpet and you already have pets, or plan to in the near future, consider buying a darker carpet. Darker carpets will better hide any marks caused by you little bundles of joy. If your budget permits, woollen carpets also have excellent soil hiding abilities. This is due to the fibre being porous, so small soil particles are easily hidden. As well as this, wool is incredibly durable and will in most cases out live most synthetic carpets.
Groom your pets regularly
Regular pet grooming is an important factor in the effort to prolonging the life of your carpet. Pet hair can be notoriously greasy if not cleaned on a regular basis. Without a structured grooming regime this hair will be deposited on the carpet. As you walk over the hair, grease can be transferred from the hair to your carpet fibres. Once this has occurred, the grease will attract soil particles and will prove difficult to remove. If you would like your fur baby professionally groomed, we highly recommend this Waterlooville based pet groomer. WAGS Professional Dog Grooming Service.
Regular home cleaning
This may sound really simple, but a regular thorough hoover will reduce the opportunity for pet hair to transfer grease to your carpets, and attract further soil, drastically prolonging their life!
Invest in professional carpet cleaner
Pets spend a lot of their time outside exploring strange new smells. when they come back into your home, your carpets are likely to become dirty, and perhaps even carry an odour. Keep your carpets dirt, odour and germ free by having them professionally cleaned every 12 - 18 months. Not only will this protect your pets and family from potentially dangerous germs carried in from outside, but will also prolong the life of your expensive carpets and keep them looking new for longer.
