We love our pets! But sometimes our furry friends do what they do where we wish they wouldn’t. At FiberCare, we’re accustomed to the challenges that go along with having a pet in the family. We have the expertise to deal properly and safely with the odors and messes that are bound to happen sometimes.
Sometimes, a pet accident is a simple fix, but often, particularly with urine, the challenge is a little more difficult, and patience and persistence is required. Whatever the situation, rest assured that we’re a phone call away, and we know what to do!
Remember: the key to success is dealing with the mess immediately and with the proper cleaners and methods. Often, if we’re not able to remedy a stain, it’s because of the homeowner’s too-aggressive attempt at removal.
Don’t forget: when you protect your carpets and furnishings with Fiber-Shield, these messes become a lot more manageable.
DIY tip: If you have a pet, and an accident happens, here’s a solution you can make for immediate and safe spot removal: Mix warm water 50/50 with white vinegar. The vinegar is for acidity, which is necessary to avoid damaging your carpet fibers. Add a tiny amount of non-bleach laundry detergent (we don’t want suds!). Blot up what you can of the original mess, then saturate with the cleaning solution. You may agitate a bit with your fingers (you probably want to wear gloves for this part! ). Blot and repeat, but do not scrub! If there’s still a problem, give us a call and we will either guide you over the phone or arrange for a service visit.
