The winter season brings with it a unique set of challenges for keeping your home as clean as usual. For example, the cold winter months are often a time when your loved ones—including your pets—spend significantly more time indoors than the rest of the year. Plus, each time they walk in and out, they’re likely to track whatever was on their feet (or paws) onto your carpets.
So what can be done? The good news is, with a little help from your local Chem-Dry in Lafayette, Indiana, your home can be as good as new. Here are some of our tried and true winter pet cleanup tips.
Cleaning Up After Your Pet In The Winter
We get it—the thought of leaving your pet exposed to the cold winter temperatures is tough. There’s nothing wrong with letting your pup snuggle up with you a little more than usual this time of year. However, it’s important to keep your furry friend’s schedule as consistent as possible.
In order to keep your pet well trained, continue letting them outside to relieve themselves—even when it’s cold. The last thing you want is to undo their good habits by allowing them to bend the rules during the winter season.
It can also help to add durable rugs in high traffic areas of your floors—especially at doorways—and to place protective coverings or blankets over your furniture.
If you do notice a pet stain on your carpet, the key is to treat it as quickly as possible. Keep a specialty carpet cleaning solution on hand and use it on your floors immediately after soaking up as much of the spot as you can with a soft towel.
Of course, it’s unrealistic to assume that all pet stains can be prevented or avoided throughout the winter season, and that’s okay. Even if there are a few you miss, they can be taken care of with your routine pet urine and odor removal service.
Even if your carpets appear to be clean, it’s essential to keep up with professional pet urine and odor removal carpet cleaning from Chem-Dry. Not only are we able to remove tough stains and lingering odors with our revolutionary P.U.R.T. method, but we also remove virtually all bacteria left behind from your pet in the process. Removing the germs left behind by your pet is crucial when it comes to maintaining a healthy, happy home for you and your loved ones.
Make it a rule of thumb to schedule Chem-Dry pet urine and odor removal treatment at least once each year, and you’ll rest easy knowing your home is clean, safe, and protected.
