Set aside some time on April 11th to show your pet some extra love, because it’s National Pet Day! And if things get messy in all the excitement, check out these helpful tips on removing pet stains and protecting your floors. While we love our pets, we understand that they can make life at home a little messier than usual. When pet accidents occur, there are some at-home solutions for removing carpet stains or cleaning up hard surface floors.

Baking Soda

Baking soda can absorb smells from your fabric or other upholstered furniture.

Door Mats

Placing doormats where pets come in and out of the house can help collect some of the dirty from outside before it makes it indoors. Frequently check underneath the mats to make sure that the carpet or hard surface floor remains dry.

Food Mats

Place dog food bowls on a mat to prevent water and food from damaging the floors.

Location

Feed your dogs or cats in the kitchen or dining area.
