Fireworks and Your Pets

Setting off fireworks on Halloween night is a common tradition, but our pets don’t always find them as enjoyable as we do. Taking pets to a fireworks display is not a good idea. The loud noises can hurt their ears and cause them to panic. Leave pets at home if you are going to a fireworks show.

Here Are A Few Helpful Hints To Protect Your Pets This Halloween.

  • Do not take your pets with you to any outdoor activity where there will be a fireworks display.
  • Take your pet out for plenty of active exercise an hour before the fireworks start, then home for a good meal and lots of water. A tired and well fed dog will be far less anxious during the night.
  • Leave your pet inside your home (in a room that is safe and familiar) with the television or radio on to help cover noise from fireworks. Close the blinds and curtains so bright flashing lights do not further alarm your pets. Crate your dog if it is used to being in a crate.
  • Dogs who panic can choke themselves on a collar or lead, so never use a choker chain or slip collar to restrain your dog.
  • Never leave your pets in the car; they could suffer serious health effects, including death, within a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air but do provide an opportunity for your pet or vehicle to be stolen.
  • SPCA officials also say it’s not a good idea to fully costume a family pet. Costumes can inhibit an animal’s ability to move and communicate, and may cause anxiety or aggression.
  • Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags so an owner can be contacted if the animal does escape. This includes current licenses for dogs.

Please share any of your ideas for keeping our pets safe during the fireworks. Have a safe and happy holiday!

Pet Urine Soiling

We Love Our Pets

There are over 100 million households worldwide with at least one pet. Our pets are glad to see us no matter what we look like, how we’re dressed or if we have even brushed our teeth yet. We love our pets so when they are naughty or sick it is frustrating to know it can be potentially very damaging. Sometimes even the most fully trained pets still have accidents, it happens and cannot be avoided. The important thing is to know how to deal with the accidents quickly and efficiently.

Urine Soiling

Pet urine is not only unhealthy in an indoor environment but it can also cause permanent damage to your carpet & upholstery.

When your pet pees on the carpet or upholstery it leaves an odor that can linger forever unless properly cleaned, and your pet may be prone to frequently reoffend that same area. Once the urine dries, it becomes more difficult to remove. If left for days or weeks, depending on the fabric or floor type, it can cause a permanent stain.

Clean The Spot

At good at home method to prevent permanent staining is to immediately absorb the pet urine spots by blotting up the urine with a white terry cloth towel or plain white paper towels until all the moisture is transferred.

Mix 1 part white vinegar to 2 parts water and dab (don’t rub) into the spot with a white terry cloth. Once you have dabbed up as much of the urine out as possible, blot with dry cloths until dry to the touch.

If you have an at home cleaning remedy you think works great I’d love to hear about it.

We would love to hear any of  your cleaning solution tips.

** Warning **
Do not use over the counter products, general spotters or extraction detergent.
Some of these may set the stains.

Carpet cleaning in Nanaimo

Carpet cleaning in Nanaimo
Carpets create a warm and cozy feel to our home interior setting, and they are available in a wide array of colours, patterns, and textures. Carpets require delicate care; dirt can build up over the years of usage through foot traffic, chemical or food, and water spillage. Do you want to increase the lifespan of your carpet in Nanaimo? Then it is advised to rely on classic care carpet and upholstery cleaning as they offer professional carpet cleaning services in Nanaimo and nearby cities like Parkville and Qualicum Bay. Vacuuming your carpets on a regular basis prevents the buildup of dirt, hair, and bugs. The area that is more often used in hallways and living room requires more cleaning attention. If dust particles are allowed on the carpets for long enough, it rubs and wears away the carpet fabric leading to degradation and damage. Giving immediate attention to spillage helps avoid long-term stains on the carpet—always remember to ensure your family members and visitors remove their shoes to reduce dust and rely on a professional carpet cleaning in Nanaimo.
Hiring a professional Upholstery Cleaning service in Nanaimo is much cheaper than you think. Suede furniture, for example, can get damaged during DIY cleaning as the material is made up of tiny fibers and strands that make the material porous. For this reason, most people in Nanaimo, Parksville, and Qualicum go to an expert Upholstery Cleaning service to handle their upholstery cleaning. During general home cleanup, most people concentrate on other parts of their home to weed out harmful germs and bacteria but often miss out on cleaning the upholstery.

The top benefits of regular upholstery cleaning include

1. To remove harmful bacteria. You may use hand sanitizers and other cleaners in your home but neglect the breeding ground for germs. Usually, people sit down on the upholstery when they are sweaty coupled with food or drink spills. Making the upholstery fertile ground for harmful bacteria to thrive.
2. Not only does bacteria thrive on your upholstery when you don’t clean up but dust, mud, and different allergens. If you’re allergic to dust or mildews, your reactions may be as a result of these particles lodged in-between your upholstery.
3. Breathing problems may arise as a result of dust lodged in your furniture, carpets or blind. When you neglect cleaning for an extended period, these particle’s get into the air and pollute the air quality, resulting in respiratory issues on a long run.
