4 Myths about Cleaning Pet Stains

A pet is a valued member of any household. Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of owning a pet is that they are prone to accidents in the house, even if they are fully housetrained. These can cause unsightly and foul smelling stains which can do significant damage to your carpets. With proper cleaning and prevention, though, the worst effects of most pet stains can be avoided. However, many homeowners may be misled by a number of common myths about cleaning pet stains. The following list is meant to correct four of the most common of these myths:

  • Myth #1: Pet stains are just something I’ll have to live with if I want to own a pet.
  • Fact: There are many different things that homeowners can do to prevent pet stains in the home. Housetraining, paper training, or litter training your animal is a good first step. Cleaning accidents as soon as they happen, with the proper cleaning materials, can also help to prevent pet stains. Finally, supervising crated animals when they’re first let out is an important measure that can help prevent pet stains.
  • Myth #2: If I just use the right carpet cleaner, my pet will stop going in the house.
  • Fact: Carpet cleaning alone is not enough to ensure that your pet won’t have accidents in the house. It is important for preventing future accidents, but proper training and supervision is the only guaranteed way to prevent your pet from going in the house.
  • Myth #3: I can just use my normal household cleaning products to remove pet stains.
  • Fact: Many household cleaning products contain vinegar or ammonia, which don’t effectively cover the stain’s odor and may actually encourage your pet to continue their undesirable behavior.
  • Myth #4: Carpet cleaners judge homeowners with pet-stained carpets.
  • Fact: Many homeowners are afraid to hire a professional cleaning company because they are worried that the cleaning technician will judge them for the bad state their carpet is in. This is simply not the case. Carpet cleaners know that accidents happen, and that even the best pet owners can have problems preventing pet stains from occurring.
