How To Protect Your Upholstery and Carpets From Pets

While most homeowners know that carpet and upholstery cleaning is necessary to the upkeep of a house, many do not realize that this service is recommended at least once a year. But when you have pets, you might be dealing with constant messes that can lead to increased costs of caring for your carpets and your furniture. We love having pets in our lives, but they can be hard on surfaces in your home. At LCI Services, we can help you protect your upholstery and carpet from pet damage in between cleanings.

Wipe Feet Off

While it might seem like a hassle, wiping mud and moisture off your pet’s feet when they come inside is important to the cleanliness and longevity of your carpet and upholstery. You can do this by hand with a towel or you might invest in some specialty rugs that are made to clean your pet’s feet as they come indoors. An ounce of prevention can be a big benefit to the condition of your carpet and furniture.

Trim Nails

This tip is particularly beneficial for those who own cats since cat claws can cause a lot of damage to all kinds of surfaces in your home. Trimming dog nails and cat claws frequently can make a big impact on the well-being of your carpet and your furniture over the course of a year. While some pets might not let you do this at home, there are some great and affordable services that will take care of this need for you for a small fee.

Apply Protection to Your Surfaces

Not every upholstery item or carpet type comes with Scotchguard or an equivalent stain and moisture-resistant layer on it. You can add this protection with our help so that your furniture and your carpets can more readily handle tough challenges. Preventing messes from penetrating into deeper layers of fabrics and carpets is important to their overall lifespan.

Cover High Traffic Areas

Sometimes the best solution for preventing damage to your carpet is to place rugs or other protective items over locations, like the entryway into your home. This will protect the carpet from muddy dog feet and it will keep stains from being ground into the deeper layers of the carpet as people and animals walk over this area.
