Carpet Cleaning Mistakes Made by Pet Owners

Dogs on thecarpe

When you have a pet living in your home, it takes a toll on your carpet. Pets create stains that their owners make worse by making three common mistakes during the clean-up process. Those mistakes include:

1. Scrubbing the Carpet

It is a natural reaction for a person to scrub at dirt and stains on fabric and similar materials. Scrubbing dirty clothes will help, but it does not work the same way for carpets. If your pet tracks in mud or has an accident on your carpet, don’t break out the scrubbing brush and apply elbow grease to remove the mess.

What you need to do is carefully lift off the dirt from the surface. Spray it with a solution of dishwashing soap and water and dab the stain or remaining dirt off with a paper towel or rag. Don’t scrub because scrubbing will only make the stains sink in deeper into the carpet.

2. Not cleaning the carpet immediately

Letting your pet stains sit for hours on your carpet is another big no-no. The moment you see a hint of a stain or dirt on your carpet, take care of it immediately. Letting a pet stain remain on your carpet for a few hours will damage the carpet and create an unwanted odor.

3. Not steam cleaning your carpet

Using regular cleaning methods on your carpet just won’t do. It won’t remove the deep-seated gunk buried deep within your carpets. To get your carpets thoroughly clean, you need a professional carpet cleaner who can steam clean your carpets every three to six months.
