Keeping your Carpet Safe for your Dogs

As pet owners, it’s easy to think about how our pets’ messes affect our lives, but we should also consider how our home environments affect our pets’ lives. Often the two go hand in hand, when your dog tracks in dirt and mud, that ends up in your carpets and upholstery, which in turn can cause various health issues for both you and your pets. Unless you’re able to teach your dog to vacuum and spot clean after themselves (tell me your secrets if you’ve figured this one out), it’s a good idea to hire a professional carpet cleaning service to make sure your home stays clean and healthy for both you and your pets.

This infographic from the experts at Chem-Dry of Omaha details different kinds of health hazards that could be living and growing in your carpets.

If your carpets are looking a little less than fresh, take some time to call your local carpet cleaners and set up an appointment. While you may not think about it too much because you don’t spend a lot of time lying on the floor, your dog spends a lot of his time on the floor and you want to make sure he doesn’t develop any rashes or allergies due to a dirty carpet.

Thanks for reading and happy training!
