First thing we need to say is that pets and carpets do not match easily. If you have a fury pet, you should think of appropriate flooring such as tiles, hardwood or linoleum. But if you want to keep both your pet and your favourite carpet, you will eventually find yourself in some serious cleaning trouble.
As you know, pets shed almost all year round. Animal fur can easily get stuck in between your carpet fibres and get really difficult to be removed. Professionals, such as carpet cleaning Mayfair, can help you take care of your carpet. But if you do not want to spend money on cleaning services, you could try following our tips:
1. Regular vacuuming is usually not good enough for removing pet fur. You can use a pet rake to get a lot of the fur out of the carpet. The best solution for you is to buy a vacuum cleaner that has a beater brush or a brush roll. They grab the fur and lift it off the carpet which helps the vacuuming process. Grooming your pet regularly will also help you keep your carpet clean longer.
2. Even well trained pets can have accidents from time to time. You should treat the stain as soon as possible. First, wipe it with a clean damp cloth. Then use a solution of two parts clean water and one part distilled white vinegar to soak the stained area thoroughly. Let it stay for a while and blot with a clean towel. Repeat the procedure until the spot is removed completely. The acetic acid in vinegar will not only help you clean the spot visibly. It works as a natural disinfectant and deodorizer and will remove all the unpleasant urine odour and stop your pet from remarking the same spot again.
3. If your pet happens to vomit on the carpet, use the same technique. It might take some more time and elbow grease, as stomach fluids are normally very thick in nature and therefore much harder to clean.
Unfortunately, you want it or not, your carpets need a professional cleaning at least once a year. You cannot keep it allergy-free and healthy without the help of the professionals. So, rely on Mayfair cleaners once a year and live in a clean and healthy environment.
