When it comes to pets and carpets, they don’t always go hand in hand. However, this doesn’t mean that your carpets need to be in a constantly stained state.

Allowing your pets to spend their time indoors can be a great way for them to become more part of your family and is something which your pets will truly enjoy. However, this comes with a caveat, in that your pets don’t understand the idea of stains or, even more, how to stop causing them. However, this doesn’t mean that a house with an indoor pet means a dirty house.

Keeping Your Carpets Clean with an Indoor Pet

If you have an indoor pet and are looking to prevent more stains from occurring or you are considering getting an indoor pet and want to know what you may need to do to prevent carpet stains, Midland Cleanpro has just the article for you.

A Clean Pet Means Clean Carpet

You may take it for granted, but stomping on your doormat or kicking your shoes against the door frame can actually remove a lot of dirt and debris which would otherwise be walked into your home where it would cause stains. While you shouldn’t expect your pet to learn how to remove dirt from their paws, it is something which you can do yourself quickly before allowing your pet to re-enter your home. By simply wiping your pet’s feet with a clean cloth as you stomp on the mat, you can greatly reduce the amount of stain-causing contaminants entering your home.

More Cleaning

It can often be difficult to clean your home weekly, let alone add extra cleaning to the roster. However, if you have a pet in your home then the reality is that you need to step up your cleaning game. When small amounts of dirt enter your home and make their way into your carpet, they are largely unnoticed. It isn’t until the dirt starts to build up that a stain is caused and you can see the mark. The best way to prevent these stains from occurring is to prevent the buildup of dirt, and the easiest way to do that is with additional vacuuming. Just a few extra quick vacuum sessions throughout the week is enough and, if your pet belongs to your children, can also be a great lesson in responsibility. If you are tired of looking at stained carpets or you can’t remember the last time that you hired a professional carpet cleaning service, now is the time to call Midland Cleanpro at (432) 889-7199. Using a proprietary ION Exchange carpet cleaning method, Midland Cleanpro can not only remove stains and bring your carpets back to life but can do so without causing damage to your carpet and leaving them ready to walk on in a matter of hours.

Get Ready for Stains

If there is one thing which all stains share in common, it’s the point that if you can get to them fast enough, you can effectively stop them from occurring. However, the challenge is getting to a stain in time. Take a walk around your house and identify areas where your pet spends much of their time. Then, create small and hidden cleaning stations near those areas. For example, you can hide a bottle of clean water and cloth:
  • Underneath the kitchen sink.
  • Behind the couch.
  • Underneath a large furniture item.
  • Hidden behind the television
Anywhere else you can think of, be sure to include these areas. With these in place, if you see any type of pet-stain occurring, you will be better prepared to act.

Pet-Zones

Unless your pet needs to access your entire home, consider utilizing pet-zones, which are areas inside your home where pets are allowed. This is a great way to stop stains from happening in the majority of spaces in your home.
  • The easiest way to start is by using the doors in your house. Begin by putting signs on each of your doors which lets people know if they are allowed to bring a pet into the area, and to remind them to close the door behind them.
  • If you prefer to keep your doors open, consider small plastic gates which you can easily install into your existing doorways. These can be easily opened by anybody walking around your home but provide enough support to prevent roaming pets.
Whichever method you use, they will only work if everybody in the house uses them, so be sure to educate your family about what you are doing and what you expect.
