Do You Know What Your Dog is Leaving in Your Carpet?

03 Oct, 2022


A dog has at least 20 species of bacteria in its mouth.

Dog Doodoo and Whoopsies

There are 23 million fecal coliform bacteria in a single gram of doggy poop.

Fleas and Ticks

Keeping ontop of flea, tick and worm treatments are a large expense for pet owners, let alone the admin of remembering to do this. Fleas and ticks love jumping off beloved pets and hiding in carpets and upholstery.


An estimated 10% of the population is allergic to animals, with pet dander being the main cause.


Carpets are a catch-all for dirt with soiling unable to be reached by home vacuum cleaners. Dirt caught in the fibres grinds everytime foot traffic moves across, which wears carpet out prematurely.

How it affects you and your family

When left unattended, dogs will leave all manner of bacteria and allergens in your carpets and upholstery. Only professional cleaning can truly eliminate these health hazards: Allergies, Stomach Illness, Skin Infections and Inflamed Asthma.

How to conquer these health concerns

Add Doormats

By adding doormats, you can absorb water, dirt and muck from your dog’s paws to help your floors stay cleaner, longer.

Bathe your dog regularly

Regular baths for your dog not only keeps their coat shiny, but a weekly bath can decrease the level of allergens by 84% along with decreasing the dirt being tracked into the house. It’s fun bonding and keeps your furry friend smelling nice.

Treat pee stains immediately

Treat pee stains immediately to keep urine from seeping into your carpet padding, causing permanent damage. Dogs will also return to the ‘scene of a pee’ if not cleaned right away. Keep an odour remover on hand for fresh urine and call a carpet cleaning professional to treat older accidents to get rid of strong odour problems.

Have your carpet professionally cleaned

Vacuuming alone is not enough. The EPA recommends homes with young children and pets be cleaned professionally every 3 to 6 months. This is the most effective schedule to remove accumulated dog hair, odour, stains and outdoor contaminants that come with pet ownership.
