Carpet and upholstery cleaning tips for pet owners
If you own a cat or dog, you know that pet hair, dander and the occasional accident means that you need to regularly clean your carpets and furniture. Here are some tips for pet owners to keep their homes clean:
Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. Use the attachment on your vacuum meant for upholstery, as this will help you lift the pet hair that has become embedded in the fabric. Vacuum multiple times per week to prevent a buildup of hair that becomes difficult to remove and is hard on your vacuum cleaner. Use a lint roller or tape to pick up hair in places where the vacuum can’t reach.
Clean up accidents right away. Unfortunately accidents are unavoidable, but being prepared to clean them up right away will help to prevent permanent stains from setting in. Without applying too much pressure, try to blot up the mess with a dry cloth, then apply some soapy water to the area and gently blot again with a clean, dry cloth. Repeat this process until the area is clean. Use an odour neutralizer to finish cleaning the stain.
Neutralize odour. Products are available to help mask odour, but there are also many options for homemade solutions. Try using vinegar and water (50/50 ratio), apply to stain, blot, then sprinkle baking soda to eliminate odours. Whatever you use, remember to do a small spot test first to be sure the solution won’t damage the material.
Use a pet bed. To limit the amount of hair on your furniture, try to encourage your pet to sleep in a pet bed or on a blanket. This means your pet will shed the majority of its hair in one location, making the cleanup more manageable. You can shake out the bed or blanket before washing.
