Pet Stain Carpet Stain Removal in Portland and surrounding areas

PORTLAND, OR –  If you’re a pet owner, you know that having a furry friend in your home is one of life’s greatest joys. However, with pets come the challenges of maintaining a clean and odor-free living space. Pet hair, stains, and odors can accumulate quickly, making it difficult to keep your carpets looking and smelling fresh. That’s why regular carpet cleaning is a must for those with pets.

Did you know we have our own family/office dog? Amber is often sitting at our feet while we answer the phone (we like to think she is listening in). She loves to sleep, to play, and to meet new people. She has brought many laughs, but has had her fair share of accidents, especially as a puppy. Not only do we have experience with pets as professional carpet cleaners, but we happen to have a special four-legged friend of our own.

At A+ Carpet Cleaning in Portland, we understand the struggles of pet ownership. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of four reasons why you should schedule regular carpet cleaning if you have pets.

Pet Stains and Accidents

Pets, especially puppies and kittens, can have accidents indoors. Even if your pet is fully house trained, accidents can happen. Urine, feces, vomit, and other substances can stain your carpets and create unpleasant odors. Regular carpet cleaning can remove these stains and odors, preventing them from seeping deep into your carpet fibers and padding. At A+ Carpet Cleaning, we frequently get frantic calls from clients new and old, saying their pet had a recent accident and they need services as soon as possible. Any of these sound familiar?

  • We had someone house sit and they didn’t let the animals out
  • Our pet ate something they shouldn’t have
  • We cleaned up an animal spot but it smells/looks worse than it did in the first place 

Unfortunately, part of having a pet can sometimes mean having to clean up quite the mess. Calling in a professional is not only a great way to save yourself the time and effort, but it will also lead to better results. We have specific products that can change odor on contact, or oxidize any enzymes left behind so that your pet is less likely to return to that area for a unsolicited potty break.

Pet Fur and Dander

No, my pet doesn’t have dander. They are hypoallergenic!

Unfortunately, that is not exactly true. The common misconception is if your pet doesn’t shed a lot, they don’t have as much dander. In reality, pet dander is tiny bits of skin, and can be shed by pets like cats, dogs, rodents, and birds. Even though they’re really small, these particles are often the true culprit of “pet allergies.” The main reason for these allergies is a protein found in the skin, urine, and saliva of animals. When pets groom themselves or shed skin cells, this protein becomes airborne, and it can stay in the air for a long time, but will eventually be pulled down into the fibers of your carpet.

However! Regular vacuuming and professional carpet cleaning can remove pet fur and dander, reducing the risk of allergic reactions and respiratory issues. If you have a shedding pet, you know that the fur problem is real. One swipe over  your carpet and your vacuum is full of the little hairs. Even if your pet is “hypoallergenic,” they still have dander that can disturb and corrode the carpet fibers if left to their own devices. It’s important to make sure that you are staying on top of vacuuming and sweeping if you have a pet. Nowadays, they have cordless vacuums, which make it a lot easier! You can also use hand tools on your upholstery or other fabric surfaces that your pet lays on or walks by.

Pet Odors

Pets have a unique smell that can permeate your carpets and furniture. The odor can be particularly strong in high-traffic areas, such as hallways and doorways. Regular carpet cleaning can remove pet odors, leaving your home smelling fresh and clean.

Our technicians will notify you if they smell an odor during their walk-through of your home. Sometimes we don’t notice the scents happening right underneath our noses! It is easy for our sense of smell to be dulled to certain odors if they are always present. Bringing in a professional allows you to know for sure the state of your carpet, and we have products that can help if there is a significant odor present.

Extended Carpet Life

Regular carpet cleaning can extend the life of your carpets, especially if you have pets. Pet hair, dander, and stains can wear down your carpets, making them look old and worn. Professional carpet cleaning can remove these substances, reducing wear and tear and keeping your carpets looking new for longer.
