Vancouver Carpet Cleaning: Carpet Care for Homes with PetsMay 29th, 2018 | by Angelo | 0
The team at Angelo’s FabriClean know that pets are a part of many people’s lives. As a Vancouver carpet cleaning company, there’s no doubt that cleaning up after furry friends isn’t always an easy job. To help homeowners, here are some tips and tricks for easy cleanup that will keeps rugs and carpets in tiptop shape.
First of all, pet owners should be aware that it’s necessary to vacuum more frequently to get as much pet hair and dander out as possible. This is especially important if there are occupants with allergies.
It’s important to clean up new messes quickly, before they have a chance to set and stain. There several options for what to use here. A common household solution using hot water and detergent, vinegar and ammonia is a quick and easy way to deal with the problem.
For other stains, an organic cleaner with enzymes is the best choice. There are many options for pet stains that will clean, sanitize, and deodorize. In this case, a little scrubbing might be necessary, but remember to be gentle.
If homemade solutions aren’t enough, should look for cleaning products with the CRI Seal of Approval, as they are specially designed for pet stains and odours.
Remember to blot the stains, which draws the mess out rather than drive it in deeper. Dab the stain with one of these cleaning solutions. And blot from the outside in using a clean, colourfast cloth, paper towels, or a sponge.
Even with quick and regular cleaning, those messes are going to need proper tending to. We recommend having your rugs or carpets cleaned by a professional rug cleaner at least once a year, or more frequently if necessary.
One pitfall to look out for is DIY steam cleaning. This is a mistake to use on urine stains, as the heat and steam will not only set the stain, but make the room smell. Use a wet-vac and rinse with cool water instead.
