Pets make our lives better in so many ways. However, they can wreak havoc on your tile floors, carpets, and upholstery. Regardless of if you rent or own, there’s usually some tell-tale signs of pet homes. Here’s what to watch out for and how to minimise any damage that your beloved furry friends may cause before calling your professional carpet and tile floor cleaner.

How can your pets damage the surfaces in your home?

Cats and dogs seem to have a talent for shedding year-round. No matter the season, you’ll find your black clothes, couches, and carpets covered in pet hair. Over time, this hair can become engrained in the carpet and upholstery fibres, making it very difficult to get out. Long nails can also scratch and wear away on hard surfaces over time. Lastly, if your pet frequently has accidents, this can also cause issues with your floors. Regardless of if it’s tile or carpet, these surfaces are often porous and will soak up liquids. This can damage not only certain kinds of tile floors but also the grout in between the tiles. 

Tips to help minimise pet damage to your home

Regularly groom your pets. Always keep a hairbrush around so a cuddle can easily turn into a brush – chances are your pets will love it! It’s also important to keep your pet’s nails trimmed. This will minimise the scratches to surfaces, leading them to become more porous and damaged over time. It’s also a great tip to placemats at the main entrances. For the same reason these mats take the dirt off of your feet, they will help clean the dirt off your pet’s paws. It’s also a great idea to place a mat under your cat or dogs water and food bowls. This will help minimise a lot of the food and water spillage.
