Handling Carpet Pet Stains and Odor
Pets are an integral part of most households. They are cute, loyal and very dear. The problem however is with the ugly stains that mark your carpets and area rugs, especially during the formative years of your pet. Stains from pet urine and solid waste could be a real problem. They smell heavily, leaves a suffocation odor in your leaving room and the stains are very hard to remove later. If the stains are left unattended, the patch areas on the carpet could fast turn into a breeding ground for bacteria, termites and germs. So unless you train your pets to go outdoor or if you have too many pets at home, prepare yourself for a rather heavy-duty cleaning drill every other day.
Animals have a tendency to repeatedly dirty the patches where they detect the scent of urine or feces.
Pet odor removal must also be done immediately because if the soiled patch of carpet is allowed to sit for too long, it will require more dramatic methods to get rid of it.
If the animals are allowed to soil the flooring for weeks at a time, and the fabric is not cleaned thoroughly every time, the carpet may need to be replaced, which is significantly more expensive and obnoxious than dealing with the issue in the first place.
Norovirus, popularly known as Norwalk Virus, often found occurring in dirty carpets and upholstery causes stomach problems and digestive problems. Salmonella, another notorious virus is often associated with contaminated food. However, the virus can be tracked right at your home, your carpet and vacuum cleaners. So if you have kids who pick up fallen food from the carpet and pop it into the mouth, its time you take precautions.
