As most pet owners know, carpet cleaning is absolutely essential to keeping your home looking and smelling its best. Keeping pets in the house can create challenges when it comes to maintaining good hygiene in the home. Pets can require daily upkeep, and getting your carpets cleaned every once in a while can go a very long way.
How do pets affect the carpets in your home?
Pets can have multiple affects on the health of your home’s carpets. Here is a short list of ways pets can affect the carpets in your home:
- Fur shedding
- Debris and dirt tracked in on paws
- Food spills
- Toilet accidents
This is just a short list of the ways pets can affect the carpets in your home. Of course, none of these are at the fault of the pet, they just happen to be common bi-products of having animals in the home. These bi-products can create odors within the home that are not typically found in homes without pets, and the main contributor to these odors are carpets. Carpets can trap particles that are found around pets, mainly dander, pet hairs, and dirt tracked from their paws. For those of us that have pets, sometimes we can become immune to these smells by constantly being around them. We’ve all been to that one house where you can immediately detect the smell of animals just by walking in…
However, these smells can be attributed to more than just what is in your carpets; pet smells can be a result of carpet dander becoming airborne. Wear and tear on carpets can cause particles and bacteria to get tossed into the air. These particles are very small and can be moved around the home. These particles can also cause allergies and asthma to flare up in humans, making the home less hygienic to live in. Through regular maintenance and by getting your carpets professionally cleaned 2-4 times per year, you can keep your carpets healthier longer, and reduce the amount of buildup of particles in the carpet fibers, as well as improve the air quality within your home.
