Carpet Cleaning For Pet Issues Cape Coral

Pets and Carpet: An Ongoing Tug of War

Pet owners around SW Florida are engaged in a constant war with their carpet. Homeowners find themselves continually cleaning up after their pets between fur, odors, and messes caused by energetic or clumsy critters. When vacuums are a useless weapon, and the DIY tricks barely make a dent in the pet odors, it is time to give in and schedule a professional carpet cleaning.

With so many products on the market for home carpet cleaning, homeowners may be tempted to skip a professional cleaning and rent a machine and do it themselves. However, with pets, neglecting the expert care of the carpet in the home can, in the end, lead to more expensive problems, i.e., permanent stains, reduced indoor air quality, carpet life shortened, and odor.  On top of this, a rental carpet cleaning machine can never match the deep clean, agitation, heat, or cleaning power of a professional truck-mounted system.

Why Professional Carpet Cleaning Is a Must for Pet Owners

A clean, fresh carpet makes for a happy, healthy family, pets included. Many pet owners, especially cat owners, know the frustration of getting ready for work or school in the morning, only to realize that pet hair is all over everything. Most cats and dogs shed fur everywhere, and it can find its way into nearly any crack and crevice. For people who have allergies or are sensitive to contaminants, this excess hair, combined with pet dander, and possible urine, can be uncomfortable at best. Vacuums only go so far when removing hair and dander from the carpet and will do nothing to rid the bacteria of pet urine.

A Few Ways To Reduce Pet Hair In The Home:

Regular grooming. Most pets shed fur. To stay on top of this shedding, make sure to regularly brush the dogs or cats to ensure that loose hair is collected before it has a chance to fall off on the carpet.

Pet beds. When dogs and cats have their beds to lay in, they may get on their bed and furniture less.  By providing pets with beds, homeowners reduce damage to carpeting and upholstery.

Rubber brooms. Rubber brooms create a static charge when they contact the carpet. Pet hair is attracted to the rubber pad, and thorough vacuuming can remove any remaining hair.

Accidents and Pet Odors

One of the most challenging aspects of owning pets is potty training them. When pets and their owners move into new homes, this can be a challenge all over again. And that is even when the pet is already potty-trained! When an animal enters a new home or area for the first time, it is unfamiliar. Smells and sights that prompted them to potty outside may be disrupted. Many pet owners find their pets having accidents or “marking their territory” in new homes.

While there are carpet pet spotters you can purchase in grocery and big box stores, most of these products are watered-down versions of professional-grade solutions. They are worthless at removing stains and bacteria.  Many contain deodorizers that mask the odor to humans, but to pets, the scent marker remains.
