How to Avoid Area Rug Disasters from Fireworks and Pets – Prescott Valley AZ

How to Avoid Area Rug Disasters from Fireworks and Pets – Prescott Valley AZ

The news reports always come on every year to remind us that the loud, booming firework noises tend to scare our pets.  They always remind us to keep our pets inside and not leave them in the back yard so they don’t get really upset and end up running away trying to find shelter from the booming, unfamiliar noises.

I’m Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care and I definitely agree we need to protect our pets.  In our homes the noise becomes much less frightening, BUT you should also keep in mind that they hear far better than we can and will likely still become scared from the noise.  Not only should you protect your pets, but you should also protect your area rugs, too!

It isn’t uncommon for a nervous animal to urinate.  And if a nervous animal as access to your beautiful area rugs, you may become disappointed when you find a puddle of urine on that rug.  Who knows why rugs head straight for our soft area rugs to have accidents on, but they do.

Perhaps it’s best to quarantine your dog in a single room of your home instead of giving them free reign of the house.  A room that has a hard surface floor and their bed may be the best place, especially if you’re able to put on some soft music through a radio to help calm your dog.  This also keeps them away from your area rugs and prevents any accidents.

If your dog does happen to have an accident on your rug, you should have your area rug professionally cleaned as soon as possible to prevent any damage to your rug’s fibers from the acidic urine deposit.  Arizona Oriental in Prescott specializes in removing animal urine and odors in Persian, Oriental, wool, silk, synthetic, and all kinds of area rugs.

Happy 4th of July to you and your pets!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floors and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
