Fresh, clean upholstery and furniture is what everyone wants, yet when the pets jump up on them and "do their thing" there could be a problem.
Spots, stains and odors are common with upholstery and furniture when pets are involved.
Here are a few housecleaning and furniture cleaning tips for you:
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.
Hair is an issue. Brush your dogs or cats often. Loose hair is a problem for carpet and furniture, so keep your pets brushed as often as you can.
Dogs and cats that go in and out are a challenge as well. Muddy paws add soil to the home. it is a good idea to place mats inside and outside the door.
