Each pet owner is familiar with the difficulty of cleaning a carpet. It can be difficult to maintain a clean carpet due to muddy footprints or accidental spills. Lucky for you we have the inside scoop on effective, pet-friendly carpet cleaning methods in Mosman. Visit our forum.
1. Always Blot and Never Rub
It’s natural for most of us to begin scrubbing the stain as soon as an accident occurs. The stain can then spread deeper and further into the fibers of the carpet. Blot instead the stain using a dry, clean, lint-free cloth. Work from the outside. The stain will be absorbed as best as possible.
2. The Best Natural Alternative:
Cleaning products that are suitable for pets should be chosen. The combination of baking soda and vinegar is a miracle worker for many types of stains. Combine equal amounts to form a paste. Use it on the stain. Let it set for a couple of minutes and then scrub gently with a toothbrush or cloth. Then, rinse with cool water.
3. Aromatherapy Essential Oils to Combat Odors
It’s not just stains that can remain behind; pets can also emit odors. You can eliminate these smells by mixing a few drops essential oils such as lavender or eucalyptus with water and spraying it in a bottle. Just mist it and let the air dry. Not only will your room be smelling fresher, the essential oils may also calm down your pet!
4. Buy a carpet-cleaning machine that is pet-friendly:
Many carpet cleaning products are designed specifically for pet-friendly households. The cleaners are often enzymes designed to break down proteins that cause pet stains or odors. This allows for a more thorough cleaning without harsh chemicals.
5. The importance of regular vacuuming
In your carpet, pet dander and hair can accumulate quickly. You can keep pet allergens in check by vacuuming at least one time a week, and even more frequently, if there are multiple pets. Make sure you use a HEPA vacuum filter that can capture the tiny particles.
