It is not uncommon for the carpet cleaners to bring up an issue that many homeowners face: keeping furniture and upholstery clean in a home with pets. As much as pets bring us joy and companionship they are also responsible for fur, odors and sometimes accidents that can damage our furniture. It is important to use pet-friendly cleaners for upholstery. This will keep the home clean and fresh smelling, and also provide a safe environment for you and any furry family members – go here!
Regular cleaning of upholstery is key for maintaining it in a pet-friendly manner. When vacuuming furniture, use a special attachment for pets to get rid of pet hair. These regular cleanings are essential in preventing the accumulation of pet fur and dander that is particularly troublesome for those who suffer from allergies.
In dealing with organic stains like vomit and urine, it is crucial to take action quickly. The sooner you remove the spill, the less likely it is to seep deeper into the material. Mixing white vinegar with water is a great way to achieve a thorough clean. This solution is natural and neutralizes odors as well as helping break down the stain. You should test out this solution by first testing it on a small inconspicuous spot of your upholstery to check for colorfastness.
The market is flooded with pet-friendly products that are not only DIY alternatives but also upholstery cleaners. These products can tackle odors or stains specific to pets without using any harsh chemicals. Selecting cleaners with no dyes or strong perfumes can make pets uncomfortable.
A choice in upholstery fabric is something that many people overlook. If you have pets, choosing furniture made of fabrics suitable for them can make maintenance and cleaning easier. Fabrics like microfiber, suede, and leather are both durable and relatively easy to care for compared with more delicate materials.
Further, preventative measures, such as the use of washable covers and throws for furniture on a regular basis can ease cleaning. These covers may be easily removed, washed and reused to keep the underneath upholstery clean.
