Man's Best Friend, Carpets Biggest Foe

April 30, 2015

When we think of our pets we probably think of the joy, happiness, and companionship that they bring to our home. We consider them to be part of the family and love them like our children.

What we might not think of however, is the germs and bacteria that they bring to our home as well. Every time our pet walks into our home, they are bringing a variety of dirt, allergens, waste, and other messes with them. Over time, this can be damaging to floors, carpets, and our health.

Just as we love and care for our dog, we also take pride in our home as well. That’s why it is so important to keep our carpets clean and free of pet odors and dander. This infographic is a great resource to provide insight on what your dog is leaving behind in your carpet, as well as some solutions for maintaining a clean and healthy home.

Despite all of your efforts to keep your pet’s paws clean, it is inevitable that some bacteria will be brought into the home. This is why routine cleaning habits play an important role. While vacuuming and mopping are essential, ultimately it is best to have your carpets professionally cleaned every 3-6 months. This is the most effective way to ensure that your carpets are getting a deep clean, and are healthy and free of unwanted pet contaminants.
