A Rainy Spring, Plus Pets, is a Bad Combination for Carpets, Floors and Furniture

A Rainy Spring, Plus Pets, is a Bad Combination for Carpets, Floors and Furniture

It’s been a very rainy spring in Western New York, which is bad news for homeowners who also own pets. Yards with poor drainage are looking a lot like swampland these days, which means Fido’s paw prints can likely be found all over your once clean floors, carpets and furniture.

“We know it’s not the dog’s fault, but these can be difficult days for all the pet owners out there, especially those who like to keep a clean house,” said Edmund Bedient, owner of Clear Choice Carpet Cleaning Services in West Seneca. “Even when the sun does come out and the yard dries up, the damage has already been done, and all the brooms, mops and vacuum cleaners in the world aren’t going to bring back the look you’re looking for. Therefore, it’s time to call in a professional cleaning service.”

Following are some tips from Clear Choice for returning your home to its former glory:

The holiday season is a joyous time of year for many families, but joy can turn to tragedy if pet owners don’t take simple precautions to ensure the safety of their pets.

This holiday season, Pet Sitters International (PSI), the world’s leading educational organization for professional pet sitters, advises pet owners to consider their pets when decorating and sharing holiday treats.

“Simple holiday traditions, such as trimming the tree and decorating the house, can pose potential problems to pets if not monitored carefully,” warns PSI President Patti J. Moran.
