Almost half of us (49%) own a cat or a dog... which can involve flooring mishaps! Here are our top five tips to love your carpet as well as your pet:
1. Use a doormat or a rug in doorways with outdoor access.
2. Use a barrier to keep your pet out of certain rooms with vulnerable flooring! Remember to close the door, or install a baby gate, (works for dogs more than cats!)
3. Sprinkle an odour-neutralising spray - even baking soda - to lift unwanted smells.
4. Get ready to blot any 'accidents' - immediately!
5. Rubber brooms are fantastic for gathering fur from your carpet.
