Child & Pet Safe Carpet Cleaning Options
If you are a pet owner, you know that when it comes time to clean your carpets, you want to make sure you use pet safe carpet cleaning.
You know the toll your furry friends can take on your carpet. Dogs and cats both cause their share of damage to your flooring. They often leave you with a home that smells less than fresh and looks dingy.
One of the best solutions for ridding your home of lingering odors and unsightly pet stains and odor is to schedule a carpet cleaning.
If you love your pets like they are a true member of the family, you are obviously concerned about their safety. After all, what is a clean carpet worth if the chemicals your pet is exposed to harm their health?
If you need your carpet cleaned, but you are worried about what carpet cleaning solutions you are exposing your pet to, read on to learn more about our process.
Harsh Chemicals – Carpet Cleaning Safe for Pets & Kids
Worrying about harsh chemicals around your pet is an extremely valid concern. Unfortunately, many over the counter carpet shampoos and cleaning solutions contain chemicals that can be harmful to both pets and humans. These solutions don’t rinse fully from the carpet, even when used correctly. In most instances, we see people just apply the solution in abundance and never rinse it out.
It is better to avoid using these products if at all possible. Dogs, cats, and small children are the most likely to be affected because they spend more time on the carpet.
Use a Professional Machine & Mild Detergents
The other issue is that when you use a small carpet cleaning unit, the kind you would rent at a store, the machine is not powerful enough to remove all the detergent you put down on the floor.
Although, with DIY carpet cleaning machines you will see some water extracted, a lot of chemicals and water are left behind. This is what also leads to the wet carpets left behind when a company does not clean the carpets correctly.
Soak Up the Suds
Leaving behind all these chemicals in your carpet poses a potential health risk for your dog or cat and for any small children. Not only are chemicals left behind, you really aren’t getting a deep clean.
This is extra problematic for those with dogs and cats, since your pets are often the cause of deep level stains.
For example, if you are training an adorable, but accident prone puppy, you are staining your carpet beyond the top fibers. This means those puppy accidents are penetrating even into the padding of your carpet.
Surface cleaning will never rid your carpet of these deep stains.
The Steam Cleaning Difference
Hiring a professional team for carpet cleaning is the best way to ensure the safety of your pets. We use a steam cleaning process that is extremely effective both at leaving your carpets clean and at ensuring no chemicals are left behind. The major difference between using harsh over the counter chemicals and the steam cleaning process we use is found in the equipment.
At Maas Carpet Cleaning we use high quality equipment, capable of high powered extraction. When we clean your carpets, our machines output water that has been heated to higher temperatures than an over the counter machine can produce. This extremely high temperature is what creates the steam cleaning process.
Hot Water Extraction
Using this high powered steam cleaning method, paired with an eco friendly detergent, allows us to clean your carpets at the deepest levels. Then, due to the high power of our equipment, we are capable of extracting all the water and detergent in a highly effective manner.
Instead of leaving behind a pesky residue, we can pull out everything we put in your carpet along with any residue left behind in the past from your own home carpet cleaning remedies. This will leave you with a safe, clean, fresh smelling carpet.
