An indoor pet and carpet is the perfect recipe for stains. However, just because you have an indoor pet doesn’t mean that your carpets need to be constantly stained.

Allowing your pets to spend time in your home is a great way to include them in your family. However, unlike your family members, your pets aren’t aware of what a stain is or, even more, that they were the ones who caused it. But this doesn’t mean that you have to choose between allowing your pet indoors and clean carpet.

How to Keep Your Carpets Clean With an Indoor Pet

If you love having your pet inside your home but are a little tired of the stains, below is a post from Charlotte Cleanpro with ideas which can help.

Shake off the Dirt

As much as you may take it for granted, stomping your shoes on the doormat or kicking your shoes together to remove dirt before you enter your home actually does a great job at minimizing the amount of dirt and debris which will enter your home where it can cause stains. However, this isn’t going to be the easiest trick to teach a dog. Instead, it’s up to your family to take on the task. An act as simple as wiping your pet’s feet with a clean cloth you store at your front door or entrance way can be enough to prevent dirt from entering your home.

A Little More Cleaning

A small amount of dirt on your carpet isn’t noticeable. It isn’t until this dirt is left to accumulate that the problem becomes visible. Of course, by this time a stain will have already been caused. In addition to your regular weekly thorough clean, schedule a range of small quick vacuum cleaning sessions throughout the week to accommodate for any dirt or debris which your pet does manage to bring into your home. If your pet belongs to your children, then this can also serve as a great lesson in responsible pet ownership. Regular professional carpet cleaning in Charlotte is the best way to keep your carpets looking their best and to help extend their lifespan.

Preparation Is Key

Try as you may, there will always be times when accidents happen, such as your pet becoming a little too excited to get inside, leading them to jump over you and track dirt marks all across your living room. Like all stains, when accidents like this happen, the best thing you can do is to act quickly to prevent it from becoming difficult to remove or even permanent. The challenge faced by homeowners is getting the cleaning supplies ready in time. Walk around your home and look for spaces which your pet usually likes and hide a small cleaning station in the area. This includes a bottle of clean water and a cloth hidden:
  • Behind your TV in the living room.
  • Underneath a bookcase in the hallway.
  • On top of a display cabinet in a shared common space.
  • Underneath your laundry basin.
Anywhere else your pet spends much of their time, add it to the above list and make sure that you have the basic supplies at-the-ready.

Pet-Only Zones

Finally, if your pet doesn’t need full access to your house, then consider establishing pet-only zones. These are areas in your home where pets are allowed, with everywhere else being off limits.
  • The quickest and easiest way to do this is to use the doors you already have in your home. Print up small signs which you can attach to your doors which indicate whether a pet can be taken into the room and to remind people to close the door behind them.
  • If you like to keep your doors open, consider small gates which you can easily install into your existing doorways. These gates are easily opened by you and your family members but prevent curious pets from roaming free.
