Until you have owned a pet you will not have experienced the joy they bring and the love they endow upon you but the price of those is that you must care for their every need. As they say, every up must have a down, and the downside of pets is that they can be messy, and that often means a greater emphasis on carpet cleaning than you would find in a house without pets.
Now, many pet owners say they would gladly put up with ten times the amount of cleaning around the house as long as it meant they could have their pet with them. However, that should not be necessary, especially when it comes to carpets, as there are actually some steps you can take to either reduce the amount of carpet cleaning required and which also prolong the life of your carpets, even if you have one or more pets.
These tips and the advice we are about to give will not suddenly turn your pet into a spotlessly clean animal who wipes their paws on the doormat every time they come in the house, but it will reduce the amount of dirt, stains, and pet hairs that your carpet has to endure.
