Whether you currently have a dog or are planning on adding one during the holiday, you are in for a treat. These animals are fantastic at giving unconditional love, and they are a great addition to the family. If you are getting a puppy, you are probably aware that you will have to potty train. Dog urine is tough on carpets, and it can ruin your flooring very quickly. If your pooch had an accident on your carpet, give ProGreen Carpet a call. To keep your carpet looking and smelling great, make an appointment today with a professional Burlington Carpet Cleaner.
In the mean time, adhere to the following suggestions in order to best avoid pet stains and odors:
Clean Up Messes as Soon as Possible
Keeping an eye on your new family member will ensure that you catch them right before or right after they go on the carpet. Getting this cleaned up as soon as possible is in your best interest. For wet spots, make sure to blot the wetness, don’t rub. Use paper towels or clean towels to accomplish this task.
If you are dealing with a solid pile, make sure to pick up the chunks with a paper towel, and then you’ll want to use a special carpet spot cleaner for the stain. Talk to a Burlington carpet cleaner to see what product they recommend to take care of this task. You should be able to use the spot cleaner on the wet area, as well.
You might also ask whether the professional has an odor remover that can be used on your flooring. This will get rid of the odor you can smell, as well as what is trapped in your carpet. If the dog can smell where he has gone before, he may think it’s all right to go in the same spot again.
Be Sure to have the Professional Burlington Carpet Cleaner Add a Stain Repellant to your Carpet
It won’t stop them from going where they aren’t supposed to, but it can make clean up easier. Instead of the wetness immediately soaking into the fibers, they will pool on top. It’s still advised that you clean up the mess as soon as possible. The stain repellant will help, but the liquid will eventually soak into the carpet.
Never Forget Accidents will likely Happen during the Puppy Potty Training Process so be Sure to Put Down a Puppy Pad or Two
Constantly keeping an eye on your new dog can be challenging. Even turning away for a second gives them a moment to go on the carpet. To prevent stains, you might consider putting down some puppy pads. These can be found in a variety of retail stores and online.
Puppy pads have an absorbent top and plastic protector on the bottom. They are a better choice than newspapers because the wetness can cause the ink from the paper to run and stain your carpeting. Puppy pads will also reduce the odor that gets into your fibers and encourages the dog to keep going in the same place.
In addition to putting down puppy pads, you might also consider kennel training your dog or confining them to a smaller area at night or when you are gone. This will reduce the places they can roam, which means fewer places you’ll have to clean. It will also keep them safer when you aren’t around to keep an eye on them.
