The Joy of Cleaning

Hello and welcome to my cleaning blog. Cleaning can bring you a lot of joy. Without it, our homes and businesses would literally be covered in old food, dust, and garbage. My name is Penny, and in this blog, I'm going to cover cleaning techniques and tips for staying organized. Whether you are trying to wash a stain out of a shirt or keep on top of the vacuuming, I hope these posts help. I also plan to write about hiring professional cleaners for your home, office, or even your industrial facility. My hope is that this blog brings you as much joy as a clean space.

Carpet And Pets

Catherine Edwards

There are reasons many people prefer carpet when it comes to their home and a lot of these people will have pets. You can learn some of the things about carpet that can make it right for your home, some of the things you want to know as a pet owner with carpet, and things you should understand about how you can keep your carpet in great shape. This guide will cover these topics for you. 

Why carpet can be the right flooring

Carpet flooring can help make a home look great by adding more texture, as well as colors that complete the decor. It is comfortable to walk on, sit on, and even lie on. It also works as an extra form of insulation helping to keep it warm inside while it's freezing outside and helping to keep the noise down. 

Carpet also gives you a soft flooring that can protect someone from being more injured if they fall, and this is something someone with a baby or with a household member who is at risk of falling will be very happy to hear. 

What pet owners should know about carpet

Carpet can also be a pet-friendly flooring to have in a home with pets. For one thing, when pets get rambunctious in the house, it can be quite loud. Carpeting can help to keep the noise level down. This means when the cat knocks things off the counter, there won't be a startling crashing sound, or when dogs run through the house, it won't sound like horses galloping through the house. 

Also, hard flooring can be difficult for some dogs to walk on, such as aging dogs with arthritis. The carpet will prevent them from slipping and hurting themselves. However, carpet can look dirty fast due to shedding pets and it can hold on to pet odors that can be noticeable as soon as you enter the house. The good news about this is that there are things you can do about the odors. 

What can be done to keep the carpet nice with pets

You want a good vacuum with a filter that will pick up the fur with ease, and you want to use it at least once a week or more if needed. You also want to work closely with professional carpet cleaners. They will let you know how often they should be coming out to help you keep the carpet looking good and free of pet odors. When the carpet cleaners come out, they will come with the right solutions and the know-how to get rid of the pet odors that are in the carpet.
