It can be more difficult to take care of your space when you have pets—you can’t watch them around the clock, and they tend to get into mischief. Plan so you can choose the best type of flooring, dedicate some time for upkeep, and deal with spills as soon as you can. Keep reading for your look at a guide to carpet care for pet owners.
Choose the Right Carpet
If you own a pet, you should get your living space in order before you introduce your pet to the mix. Dogs and cats can do a serious amount of damage to your flooring, so think about where in the house they spend most of their time. If you have a living room that children and pets aren’t allowed in, that may be the best place for luxury carpet. However, certain carpet fibers are durable and able to stand up to the foot traffic and pet nails, so they can be put in hallways and bedrooms where pets are allowed in.
Maintain It Regularly
You don’t have to keep your pets out of your carpeted areas, but you should take extra care of your carpet if your pets spend a lot of time on it. Choose a durable carpet fiber that won’t be easy for pets to tear apart and do your best to maintain it throughout its working life.
Clean Messes Immediately
The longer you leave a spill on your carpet, the more likely it will stain. Clean up messes immediately so you can preserve your carpet and your interior design. Even the most acclimated pets have accidents sometimes, but you can avoid stains and damage by cleaning them up quickly.
