Why Pet Owners Need Professional Carpet Cleaning

If you’re a pet lover, you know how much joy and comfort they bring to your life. But you also know that they can make a mess on your carpets from time to time. Whether it’s muddy paw prints, urine accidents, or spilled food, pets can leave behind stains and odours that are hard to remove with regular vacuuming.

But did you know that there’s more to worry about than just the visible dirt? Pets can also shed dander, hair, and skin oils that can accumulate in your carpets, creating a breeding ground for allergens, bacteria and dust mites. These microscopic invaders can trigger asthma, allergies and other respiratory problems, as well as damage your carpet fibers and reduce their lifespan.

That’s why professional carpet cleaning is essential for any pet owner who wants to keep their home healthy, fresh and beautiful. At Statewide Carpet Cleaners, we have the expertise, equipment and solutions to tackle any pet-related carpet issue, from stains and odours to deep cleaning and sanitising. Here are some of the benefits of hiring us for your carpet cleaning needs.

Pet dander is one of the most common causes of indoor allergies, affecting a large proportion of the population, and consists of tiny flakes of skin that animals shed, along with their hair or fur. These particles can become airborne and settle into your carpets, where they can trigger allergic reactions such as sneezing, coughing, itching and watery eyes.

To effectively remove pet dander from your carpets, you need more than just a regular vacuum. You need a professional carpet cleaning service that can use powerful steam extraction and HEPA filters to eliminate up to 99% of pet dander and other allergens from your carpets. This will not only improve your indoor air quality, but also make your home more comfortable and enjoyable for you and your furry friends.

Pets can be unpredictable, and sometimes they can leave behind stains that are hard to remove with DIY methods. Urine, vomit, blood and feces can all cause permanent damage to your carpets if not treated properly. They can also leave behind unpleasant odours that can linger for weeks or even months.

It’s at times like this that may require a professional touch to ensure these stains and unpleasant odours and neutralised effectively. Of course, using pet safe and eco-friendly solutions. With our help, you can restore your carpets to their original beauty and freshness, without any trace of your pet’s mishaps.

Even if your pets don’t have any accidents on your carpets, they can still contribute to the overall odour of your home. Pets can produce various smells from their skin oils, saliva, sweat and food. These smells can then transfer to your carpets and upholstery, creating a musty or stale aroma that can affect your mood and comfort.

While professional cleaning is the best way to keep your carpets in top shape, there are some things you can do in between cleans to maintain their health and appearance. Here are some tips to follow:

Regular Vacuuming: Vacuuming at least once a week can help remove pet hair, dander, and dirt from your carpets, preventing them from accumulating and causing problems. Use a high-powered vacuum with a rotating brush and a HEPA filter to ensure the best results.

Pet Grooming: Grooming your pets regularly can reduce the amount of shedding and dander they produce, as well as keep their coats and skin healthy. Brush your pets daily, and bathe them every few weeks or as needed. Trim their nails to prevent them from scratching your carpets and furniture.

Entryway Doormats: Placing doormats at the entrances of your home can help prevent dirt and mud from being tracked inside by your pets and guests. Choose doormats that are durable, washable, and absorbent, and clean them frequently.

Spot Cleaning: If your pets have any minor spills or stains on your carpets, act quickly and blot them with a clean cloth or paper towel. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing, as this can spread the stain and damage the carpet fibers. Use a mild detergent or vinegar solution to dab the stain, and rinse with water. Repeat until the stain is gone, and let the area dry completely.
