However, when you take some small steps to put measures in place, you can still keep your carpet clean and in great condition, while enjoying the company of your furry friends. Able Carpet Repair is here to share tips to help you keep your carpet clean and looking new, and still have inside pets.

Brush & Bathe Dogs to Reduce Shedding

As mentioned above, there are several ways that a pet can make a mess in your home. Some of them are completely avoidable though. Creating a regular bathing and grooming schedule with your pet can help to eliminate the dirt and debris that pets often track in the home after spending time outside. If your animal is a shedder, you would be surprised at how much of that hair you can remove by simply brushing your pet a couple times each week. Also, wiping your pet’s paws off before they track any dirt or mud through your home can help you avoid staining as well.

Quality Vacuum for Pet Hair

When it comes to choosing the best vacuum for your home, you will want to look for one that is going to help you keep the pet messes under control. This means you will need to look for a vacuum that has a high-quality filter. The suction on your vacuum will also need to be stronger than normal to effectively clean up after your pet. And if your pet has a coat that sheds, you will want to make sure the beater brush to pick up the hair out of the fibers in your carpet. Not only will you need to have a quality vacuum, but you need to use it regularly as well. At the very least, you should be vacuuming your floors twice a week to keep them clean.

Clean Dog Urine & Poop from Carpet

If your pet has an accident on your carpet, it is incredibly important that you work to clean up the mess quickly. Even the most well-behaved pets have occasional accidents.
