Nashville is full of pet lovers. Dogs and cats can bring such joy to both commercial and residential spaces, but they can often be a hairy mess. And when it comes to floors, the upkeep of your flooring becomes a little more complicated with pets. No matter what flooring you have, if maintenance isn’t considered with pets in the home or office, your floors can damage and wear quickly. Having a few cleaning tricks in your back pocket is a great way to keep your space clean, smelling nice and to allow your flooring installation to last longer.
Here are a few cleaning tips to consider when your little furbabies take residence:
Deep clean carpet regularly -- It’s no secret that one of the best things you can do for your residential or commercial carpet is to have it deep cleaned about once a year. This is definitely true if you have pets! You can only spot clean so much, after all. Hot water extraction and other methods are popular to deep clean your carpet and get your carpet back to looking as good as new.
Sweep and vacuum frequently -- This might seem obvious, but it’s necessary! It doesn’t matter if you have hardwoods, vinyl or carpet, sweeping the floors all the time is a must. If you swept your flooring once every couple weeks before pets, attempt to vacuum or sweep once a week with them. Increasing your cleaning habits once you get new flooring or a new pet is crucial to the longevity of your floors.
Spot treat when necessary -- Mistakes happen when you have an dog or a cat. Maybe they track in dirt from outside, or perhaps they have an accident. Whatever the case, spot treating the stain is crucial in ensuring your floors stay stain or damage resistant.
Having a pet is such a rewarding experience, but Ozburn-Hessey doesn’t want your floors to suffer. Be sure to take care of them no matter what kind of floor installation it might be. Keeping it swept and cleaned regularly not only improves the overall look of your home or business, but it increases the lifespan of your floors. Give your commercial carpet or hardwood some TLC and your floors will thank you.
