Lifestyle and Home Improvement with Your Pet

Last updated 1 year ago

At Hadeed we understand that pets are like family. They’re a bit hairier and can sometimes forget that their bathroom is outside- but they’re family nonetheless. We’d like your household to be harmonious and clean, so that’s why it’s important to learn the secrets to pet stain and odor removal.

Many pet stains go unnoticed or forgotten, creating a bacteria playground that will eventually manifest into health problems. Here are some common myths on cleaning pet stains:

Myth #1: “I can use household products, so there’s no need to hire a company to clean my carpet.” True, for mild and minimal markings, there are six steps to remove urine stains from your Oriental carpet.

  • Soak the stain in a solution of one quart warm water, one-half teaspoon detergent and one tablespoon of ammonia for 30 minutes.
  • Rinse with clean water.
  • Soak in a solution of one quart warm water and one tablespoon vinegar for one hour. Blot occasionally with clean absorbent material.  Continue for as long as any stain is being removed.
  • Rinse with clean water. Dry.
  • Apply alcohol and sponge. Keep stain moist with alcohol and occasionally with clean absorbent material. Continue as long as any stain is being removed.
  • Remove with water.

But remember that to completely remove a stain depends on a number of factors like the type of carpet, amount of time the stain has been in the carpet, the type of pet, etc. So although there are ways to “do it yourself,” hiring a professional will eliminate the chance of spreading around more bacteria.

Myth #2: “If I can’t see the stain and there’s no odor that means my carpet is clean.” False. Unless you vacuum at least twice a week and dust regularly, bacteria associated with pet stains can manifest and contaminate anything in its proximity, leading families to health problems. The best advice is to get a thorough deep carpet cleaning at least once a year. That way the breeding ground for germs is eliminated.

Myth #3: “There are just some stains that can’t be removed and I’ll just have to live with it.” False. Because most household cleaners aren’t strong enough, many people assume that they’ve exhausted their resources and are just out of luck. The good thing about professional carpet cleaning companies is they use unique techniques to rid carpets of hard-to-get-rid-of stains, and here’s how:

  • Say something here
  • And something here
  • And then say some more here

Hadeed Carpet & Rug has a long tradition in the Washington area of cleaning, repair and restoration of carpets and rugs. The company was started in 1955, in Alexandria, Virginia serving the Washington, DC metropolitan area including Northern Virginia and Maryland. Shipping throughout the entire United States is also available. The family philosophy is that the best results come from keeping the cleaning a hand washing process. So much of the job is still done carefully by hand, much like it was done almost fifty years ago. Many modern plants insert the rug or carpet into an automated assembly line of machines that might damage a valuable rug. Hadeed’s process allows for careful checking at every step.
