If you have pets in your home, you'll know it can be difficult to keep your carpets looking clean and hair-free.
There are, however, a few things that can help keep your carpets in good condition between professional carpet cleaning appointments.
Use door mats
It sounds obvious, but using door mats can help trap debris before your pet scampers from outside into the home.
For an entrance that links to your garden, it makes sense to have a mat inside and outside the entrance.
Regularly replacing these mats will help maintain their effectiveness at trapping dirt.
Treating a pet stain
You simply can't avoid the odd pet accident, particularly with puppies!
With urine stains, it is vital to act as fast as possible and treat the stain while it's still damp.
Once a urine stain dries, it will often prove to be a permanent stain and may only be slightly improved with professional treatment.

Keep on top of pet hair
Carpet fibres are magnets to pet hair.
And once the hair builds up and becomes embedded, it can be difficult to fully remove, no matter how many times you vacuum your carpets.
A simple but effective way to remove embedded pet hair is to is to use a standard window squeegee!
All you need to do is to run the squeegee through the carpet fibres and it will pull the hairs out in clumps that you can vacuum up easily.
