Home owners that have pets know that they are much more than just a pet, but soon become a full fledged member of the family; providing joy, laughter, companionship and the occasional accident. While we love our four legged friends, what we do not love is picking up an occasional accident and attempting to keep our carpets from being completely damaged from the wear and tear that a family pet brings into the home. Newly installed carpet look and feels beautiful, and unless you take the proper precautions to keep it that way, your pet can ruin the quality of your carpet very quickly.
Pet Stain Prevention
There are a few simple steps you can take as a pet owner to help preserve the quality of your carpet and keep it looking fresh and new. When your pet comes into your home do your best to dry their paws. Keep a towel near your door or the doggy door of your home. This will assist in cleaning off any excess mud, dirt or water from off the bottom of your pet’s paws. Most pets will not like having their paws physically dried off by you, but wiping off their paws will help prevent stains or dirt getting embedded into your carpet.
Pet Accidents on Carpet
Your pet having an accident on the carpet is bound to happen at one point or another. One of the most important steps to take when this happens is to clean the mess up immediately. The longer you wait to clean up the mess, the longer the pet’s feces and urine will soak into the fibers of your carpet. Not only will this leave an unsightly stain, but it can also leave an awful smell that will linger throughout your home. If the feces or urine soaks into your carpets padding, it will become even more difficult to remove the foul odor that will be left behind.
Area Rugs & Runners as Carpet Protection
Putting down area rugs and carpet runners is another great way to protect your carpet from the daily wear and tear that your pet brings into your home. High traffic areas often experience dirt, dust and grime that is embedded deep into your carpets fibers. Paws and feet alike, constantly bringing in soil and grease from the outdoors can leave unsightly shadow looking stains in hall ways and entry ways. By simply putting down a rug, runner or mat, you can help avoid these unsightly stains.
