Puppies are wonderful. Deep cleaning puppy mess from around your house is not. When my boyfriend and I got our Yorkshire terrier about a year ago, there was a three month period of cleaning up pee and poo off the floor, carpets and, occasionally, even the walls. Walk the dog, change the litter or sweep out the hamster cage, but if animal stains are part of your house cleaning routine, here are a few helpful tips for getting rid of the mess and enjoying your pet.
Specialty pet stores will stock puppy-pads for small dogs and other household pets. They cost about 10p each and will last at least a day or two, depending on the size of your pet. Training is essential for these to work, but if you can get your puppy into the habit of using the pet pads, it will save you a lot of time and your beds, carpets, cushions and furniture a serious mess.
If Peter the Budgie has already done the business on your floor, walls or, god forbid his ability to defy gravity, ceilings, a more serious approach is needed. For deep cleaning London companies prescribe specialty stain removal products. Pet centres and specialty cleaning websites stock cleaning products specifically designed for dealing with pet mess. If you are lucky enough to have your animal do its business on the bathroom or kitchen tiles, house cleaning bleach will do. If animal stains end up on your carpets or furniture, invest in a specialty cleaning solution. If an accident happens and you arenít prepared, white vinegar diluted with water is great for urine stains. It helps to break down the stain and will make it easier to scrub out any discolouration that is left over from your pet. For animal poo stains, remove any solids first and use a cotton wall bud to swab away excess soiling.
Remember that the best way to avoid pet stains is to train your pets properly and make time to allow them out of the house to do their business. If you canít manage this, puppy-pads are the cheapest, hassle-free method for avoiding animal stains and you might try these out before calling in professional help. For carpet cleaning London based companies typically offer one-off pet stain removal services at reasonable prices. Check out your local pet shop and enquire about specialty animal stain removal chemicals they might stock, as these will make any pet-related house cleaning work much easier.
