Carpet Cleaning and Pet Care Tips

By Carpet Cleaners Yuma

There is a good chance that you have experienced at least one 'accident in your household' if you own pets, such as a cat or dog. While tiles and other types are easier to clean, cleaning carpets and rugs are more difficult. High-quality carpet cleaning equipment is required to restore badly stained carpets to their original condition. You can extend the life of your carpets by maintaining a high standard of carpet hygiene.

How is carpet care different for pet households than for households without pets. Here are some tips to help carpet care.

Different Carpet Contamination Types by Pets


  • Contamination in urine and feces

Carpet Cleaners Yuma is often called upon to clean up pet stains. Urine stains are sometimes odourless, and can smell. They can be seen as a surface stain but urine can easily soak into the carpet fibres, floorboards, and underlay. Once they become set they can become more difficult to remove, and may develop a bad smell over time.

  • The dangers of shedding

Even though their hair is shorter than that of long-haired animals, "non-shedding" pets still shed. All pets shed skin and oils. This can cause carpet and upholstery to become soiled.

  • Stains made of dirt or grass

Pets are more able to bring in soil or other organic material from outside since they don’t wear shoes. However, a quick wipe of their paws will reduce the amount they bring in the dirt. It won't do enough to stop bacteria growth.


Top Tips For Pet Owners with Carpets


  • Avoid putting food, water, or other items on carpets

Use sealed flooring surfaces for food and water, such as tiled and laminate floors in the kitchen. These floors are easier and less likely to get stained or water damaged. It is a good idea to not give pets treats in carpeted areas.

  • Encourage good bathroom habits

To help your animal learn to use the potty, place absorbent mats across your carpets. Check out our "New Arrivals" package if your pet has recently arrived in your home.

  • Good grooming

Regular grooming reduces pet shedding.

  • Organize professional cleanings

A commercial hot-water cleaning unit is the best option to clean pet stains. Old stains are more difficult to remove. It's tempting to use a strong chemical to treat the stain but this could cause permanent damage.
