Carpet Care for Pet Owners

If you enjoy carpeted floors, or live in a place where carpets are the only option, you will need to make sure that you care for your floors. Having carpets and pets will mean that you need to spot clean regularly, and locate commercial cleaners in Newcastle for deep cleaning.

Hair Removal

Dogs and cats both shed. Vacuuming the hair will lead to frustrations, as you will find your vacuum hose and filters clogging. You can prevent this from happening by removing the hair prior to vacuuming. Take an empty paint roller and wrap masking tape around it. When you attach it to a pole, you will have a large lint roller. There are also carpet rakes that will help clump the hair for quick removal. After you have removed as much hair as possible, vacuum the floor with a HEPA-filter vacuum. This will remove the rest of the hair and dander from the carpet. Finally, the best way to have hair removed is by contacting commercial cleaners in Newcastle because commercial products have better suction to eliminate the hair from the under layers of carpeting.

Urine

Accidents are something that come with pet ownership. Whether you have a new puppy that you are potty training, or a dog that just does not make it out in time, you will need to know how to properly clean the carpet to prevent damage. The first step to urine removal is to pull as much moisture out of the carpet as possible. Place a towel over the wet spot and apply pressure. Once you have removed much of the urine, combine a couple drops of dishwashing soap with one cup of warm water (around 100 degrees). Using a bristle brush, work the soapy water into the stain to remove any urine crystals. Finally, you want to work to remove the odour and prevent your pet from soiling the area again. This can be done with vinegar water sprayed onto the carpet. However, you can also talk to commercial cleaners in Newcastle about methods available to fully remove the odour from the carpet and padding.

Odours

Unfortunately, carpet fibres are magnets for odours. Even with vacuuming daily, you will find that people can tell you are a pet owner by the smells remaining in your carpets. Prior to cleaning your carpets, you will want to use a product that has an enzyme to neutralize the smells. After you have cleaned your carpets with a detergent, you will want to make sure you clean it thoroughly with just water. Commercial cleaners in Newcastle will make sure that all chemicals are removed from you carpet to prevent damage to the carpet fibres, as well as prohibit the ability to remove all odours.

Stains

Urine is not the only problem pets present to carpeted homes. Faeces, blood, and vomit will all leave a stain if not removed properly. There are small carpet cleaner devices that will help remove the stain, but the best method is a professional carpet cleaner. The extraction a rental carpet cleaner offers gives more force to push water into the stain and better suction. You want to make sure that the stain removal is done without heat, as heat will help set the stain. You can treat the stain by hand first if your only carpet cleaner uses heat. However, outside of elbow grease, hiring a renowned commercial cleaner in Newcastle such as Newcastle Carpet & Tile Cleaning is going to be the best method to rid your carpets of stains.
