Apex Carpet Cares Discusses Problems Caused byMan's Best Friend

Innocent Puppy

DID YOU KNOW that man’s best friend can actually become your worst nightmare?

That’s right. He’s cuddly, cute and you love him, but sometimes he has a problem with “accidents” and pretty soon, you start to notice the… ummm… odiferous situation.

Besides the obvious occasional accident from Fido, his hair can also be an issue. Once he shakes a bit off, it goes into the carpet and furniture and sticks to it all and it can be quite a problem.

Then you have the issue of “I want in. I want out. I want in.” You know it… Fido is always on the move and the constant going outside and then back inside brings in all kinds of dirt.

What can you do about all this?

1.    Clean messes up quickly. Once you discover an “accident,” it’s important to grab a few paper towels and blot up the mess before it sinks down into the padding of the carpet. A good enzyme deodorizer like you might get from the vet helps with lingering odors, but of course it’s best to have a professional carpet cleaner come over to handle these odor challenges. Apex Carpet Care in Charleston, SC specializes in pet stain and odor removal. “If you don’t absorb the stains quickly, it could result in replacing the carpet, pad and sealing the subfloor.

2.    A hairy situation can be tamed by brushing your dog often. Loose hair that’s about to go into the carpet and furniture can be easily pulled from Fido with a good grooming brush. And guess what? He probably likes the attention! It’s difficult for the best beater-bar vacuum cleaners to pick up hair and dander imbedded in carpet fiber.

3.    While you may not have the time to wipe off Fido’s muddy paws each time he wants back inside, it is a good idea to place mats inside and outside the door. When Fido want’s back inside, let him beg a little bit on the outside mat because some of that dirt is definitely going to come off. In addition, vacuum those pet traffic areas regularly to head off the dirt accumulation.

Do all of this and man’s best friend is going to be a dream to live with, not a nightmare! But if you need help, call Apex Carpet Care.
