We all have mishaps from time to time, or maybe we have that ONE friend over who tends to be more careless than one would prefer and over time, all carpets take a beating.

Carpet Advice For Pet Issues

We have clients who have more extensive pet issues than others and as pet lovers ourselves, we try to offer some light at the end of a dim tunnel. The first step to ensuring your carpet looks great is to have your pet trained and a specific area established that is dedicated to them. It is always a good idea to stay prepared for accidents and other mishaps, especially with a new or young pet. More specifically, if you have male dogs, you may encounter pee problems that need to be dealt with. Dogs mark their territory, as do cats, and a great way to minimize this is to make a solution of two parts Listerine and one part water. Place this solution in a spray bottle. As soon as you spot the area that has dog urine blot it dry and place 1/2 cup of warm water and 1/2 cup of vinegar if the area is large if not just put one part water and one part white vinegar and scrub it and then use a vacuum to suck all the moisture out. Lastly spray the area with the Listerine and water solution. This should help get the smell out and prevent further markings of territory in the area.

Carpet Advice For Growing Families With Children

Regardless if they are small toddlers or careless teenagers, children can wreak havoc on your carpets. Personally, I’ve yet to meet a kid (small or big) to come in a house, remove their muddy shoes or clean up a spilled soda when they “accidentally” do it. No, most of the time, they trudge through your beautiful soft carpets and realize after they come back out of their room. Or, that spilled soda, gets covered up by moms favorite pillow. It happens. No matter how you’d like to slice or dice it, children add a significant amount of time and energy to your carpet cleaning efforts. The good news is that there is a solution to almost everything. The first step is to try and catch the problem as soon as it happens so you can act on it. If you are in the middle of something that cannot be left unattended wet a towel thoroughly and place it over the area until you can deal with it later. The moisture of the towel will keep the problem area moist and it will be easier to deal with later. Next, blot up or absorb as much of the liquid as you can. If it is something that is not all liquid, such as mud or juice with pulp, you should first pick out the small pieces of mud or other particles that can be removed with your fingers. Once you removed particles and are left with a more dry stain you can then select your weapon of choice.

For mud and other common stains scrubbing the area with dish soap and baking soda might be the solution. However, for other problems such as marker stains and other ink stains you may need to go out and buy a cheap lacquer hairspray, specifically one without oils and spray the area with the hairspray until it moistens the stain then using an absorbent cloth blot the area, until you can remove some of the color off the stain, repeat this as many times necessary, wetting the stain with the hairspray and removing as much ink as possible with the cloth. The stain should be able to loose all the color this way, if there is still a faint marking on the carpet you may try adding baking soda and leaving it for a bit then scrubbing the area and vacuuming it.

Having a clean carpet is harder when you have kids or pets, the carpet suffers a lot more wear and tear and is constantly begging for attention. Scrubbing and blotting, cleaning and vacuuming can take up much of your time and strength, not to mention patience. Stop fretting over all the problems and stains that need to be dealt with and leave the carpet cleaning to us.
