Why Professional Carpet Cleaning Is Essential For Households With Pets

Sharing our homes with four-legged companions can be an enriching experience that creates countless treasured memories. In fact, it may be unsurprising to discover that about 69% of Australian households are shared with furry friends, with dogs winning out as man’s best friend at 48%, and cats trailing close behind at 33%. However, what many pet owners don’t realise is that while their furry companion may be well out of their litter-training years, they can still wreak havoc on floors, especially carpets. Surface-level blemishes such as muddy paws are self-evident, but what of the hidden impacts of pet dander, pollutants, and microscopic pests? In this blog post, we’ll explain exactly how pets impact the health of your carpets and give you a better understanding of why professional carpet cleaning should be an essential part of any Adelaide pet owner’s home maintenance checklist.

Professional carpet cleaning alleviates allergies by removing pet dander

When discussing the importance of carpet cleaning in homes shared with pets, we believe it’s best to start small. All mammals that sport coats of fur shed dander; minuscule skin particles that can easily become airborne and travel throughout your home before accumulating on a wide variety of surfaces. Unfortunately, carpets are especially susceptible to attracting pet dander.

While many of us may simply shrug off the presence of pet dander in our carpets, for those sharing a home with allergy sufferers, pet dander becomes a far more pressing issue. According to HealthDirect.gov, an estimated one in five people have a pet allergy, and the symptoms, which can be directly triggered by dander, can result in a wide range of symptoms, from sneezing to coughing, itching, and even the eruption of a rash. Fortunately, the specialised equipment used in professional carpet cleaning services can penetrate deep into a carpet’s fibres, successfully eliminating pet dander. This results in much-needed relief for those vulnerable to allergies, and a cleaner, healthier environment for everyone.

Professional carpet cleaning removes stains to revitalise tired carpets

Pet-related stains can occur for a wide variety of reasons that pet owners probably wish they weren’t quite so familiar with. Urine is first on the list, especially for those adopting puppies and kittens or looking after ageing individuals. Other common stains include vomit, from those unlucky enough to suffer illness or culinary curiosity, and accidental spills of coffee, wine, or dinner by nosy pooches that just don’t know how to take “no” for an answer.

Luckily, tackling challenging stains is our forte. At Refresh Carpet Care, we specialise in removing a wide range of tough stains from carpets on a daily basis. Our skilled technicians employ a wide variety of techniques and specialised cleaning solutions to deliver outstanding results that will leave your carpets soft and reinvigorated.

Professional carpet cleaning neutralises nasty odours to keep your home smelling fresh

Have you ever entered a room in your house, only to do a double-take just to make sure your nose isn’t misleading you? You’re not the only one. Bad odours are one of the most common issues that we tackle for Adelaide’s pet owners. While there are a multitude of potential culprits that can result in your carpets smelling worse for wear, some of the most frequently encountered include urine, skin oils and sweat, shedding, and spilled food products.

What can I do to help out my carpets in-between professional cleans?

There are several steps homeowners can take to ensure their carpets. These include:

Vacuuming regularly

Regularly vacuuming your carpets can help remove some of the accumulated pet hair, dander and spilled food particles. We highly advise using a specialised brush and opting for a high-powered setting to more effectively separate pet hair from your carpet’s fibres.

Ensuring your pet is well-groomed

Grooming your pet’s coat can help reduce the amount of shedding, and help keep your carpets looking fresher for longer. If your pet has sensitive skin or suffers from dandruff, then opting for a specialised shampoo and regular washes can be an excellent strategy for reducing dander and loose fur.

Using good old-fashioned doormats

Door mats can go a long way to helping keep mud where it belongs; outside. We recommend opting for placing doormats at all entrance points to your home to help keep dirt at bay.
