Today we want to share a few tips to help you keep bad odors away and your carpet looking fresh.

Carpet Cleaner for Pet Problems

Pets and carpets may not sound like the best combination but it doesn't have to be this way. The first step to keeping your carpet looking great is to have your pet well trained and their area set. But it is also a good idea to always be prepared for accidents and other likely incidents. Specially if you have male dogs, you may encounter pee problems that need to be dealt with. A great way to get rid of dog pee that is usually used by your pet to mark their territory is to make a solution of two parts Listerine and one part water. Place this solution in a spray bottle. As soon as you spot the area that has dog urine blot it dry and place 1/2 cup of warm water and 1/2 cup of vinegar if the area is large if not just put one part water and one part white vinegar and scrub it and then use a vacuum to suck all the moisture out. Lastly spray the area with the Listerine and water solution. This should help get the smell out and prevent further markings of territory in the area. Contact us today on (503) 563-5451 to find out how we can help you maintain your carpet so clean no one will guess you have pets.

Children and Carpets

Whether they are small toddlers or careless teenagers, children can cause a lot of carpet damage. Whether they drag in dirt with their shoes, spill soda and cover it up instead of cleaning it, or decide to do their art project and leave a marker stain, children will usually add significant work to your carpet cleaning efforts. The good news is that there is a solution to almost everything. The first step is to try and catch the problem as soon as it happens so you can act on it. If you are in the middle of something that cannot be left unattended wet a towel thoroughly and place it over the area until you can deal with it later. The moisture of the towel will keep the problem area moist and it will be easier to deal with later. Next, blot up or absorb as much of the liquid as you can. If it is something that is not all liquid, such as mud or juice with pulp, you should first pick out the small pieces of mud or other particles that can be removed with your fingers.

Getting Rid of Problematic Spills on the Carpet

Once you removed particles and are left with a more dry stain you can then select your weapon of choice. For mud and other common stains scrubbing the area with dish soap and baking soda might be the solution. However for other problems such as marker stains and other ink stains you may need to go out and buy a cheap lacquer hairspray, specifically one without oils and spray the area with the hairspray until it moistens the stain then using an absorbent cloth blot the area, until you can remove some of the color off the stain, repeat this as many times necessary, wetting the stain with the hairspray and removing as much ink as possible with the cloth. The stain should be able to loose all the color this way, if there is still a faint marking on the carpet you may try adding baking soda and leaving it for a bit then scrubbing the area and vacuuming it.
