Australia has one of the highest rates of pet ownership in the world. The majority of the population here owns pets. There are an estimated 24 million pets in Australia.

We’re known for our love of pets, wild life, and all other living beings. However, having pets at home makes it a bit more difficult to keep your carpets in pristine condition.

The experts at Adam’s Carpet Cleaning reveal some of the best ways to keep your carpets clean even with your four-legged friends around:

Synthetic carpets are the way to go

There are two main kinds of carpets that can be installed in homes; synthetic fibre and natural fibre. Natural fibres are known to get damaged easily. Any spills on such carpets immediately seeps into the fibres, staining them. Such stains are tricky to remove, whereas with synthetic fibre carpets, moisture doesn’t seep all the way through. Spills can easily be wiped away. Pet urine, and any other accidents can therefore easily be cleaned off synthetic carpets.

Scotchguard application on non-stain resistant carpets

If the carpets in your home happen to be old, the stains cane be removed using Scotchguard. Scotchguard is essentially a fabric protector that can be applied to carpets installed in your home to extend its life. This protective layer prevents stains from seeping deep into the fibres. Have Scotchguard applied by professionals for even coverage of every single fibre of your carpets.

Cleaning all spills immediately

Your pets are bound to have accidents around your home. Make sure you tend to them as soon as possible. Always dab any spills on the carpets with absorbent materials to prevent the moisture from spreading. Make sure you don’t rub the spill; it will only make the stain worse. Any moisture left behind in the carpets can promote bacterial growth within the carpet so make sure there aren’t any damp spots left behind.

Keep their nails trimmed

Cats and dogs tend to have long nails since they grow fairly quickly. Long nails on carpets are a recipe for disaster. They will damage the carpets installed in your home by gnawing and scratching at it. Make sure their nails are trimmed regularly to avoid such situations.
