Pet owners– we love our animals and would do anything for them, but we could do without their messes! Although we can’t stop our pets from shedding or having occasional accidents, we can at least make cleanup easier. McHardy Vacuum has tools and products to make cleaning up after your pet simple, safe and effective.
The first thing to remember is that the quicker you can get to the mess, the easier it will be to clean up – so try and treat stains and accidents promptly before they set. And when you clean, choose a product that is made specifically for pet messes and pet odours.
Pet Messes and Accidents
Clean and Green Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner removes residual pet messes using natural ingredients rather than harsh chemicals. The natural formula encapsulate stains and odours which then biodegrade naturally, making the process safe for your pets, your family, and the planet. It penetrates deep into carpet and upholstery and is 100% biodegradable, fragrance free, and non-toxic. The best part? Spray it on and leave it; the cleaner does the rest. Clean and Green makes a formula for tile and wood floors, too.
For refreshing upholstery, pet beds, rugs and other fabrics, trust Clean and Green Furniture Refresher. This spray eliminates lingering pet smells in fabrics and leather by trapping and breaking down odours, not by masking them with perfumes. Eliminating smells from prior messes especially is important because pets have a much better sense of smell than humans and my try to mark the site of a prior mess. Fresh Wave Odour Eliminator is another great room or upholstery spray that leaves the fresh scent of lime, pine needle, clove and cedarwood upon spraying – a fresh, clean, natural smell that disappears as it dries.
Pet hair is a fact of life for dog and cat owners so regular vacuuming is a must. But regular grooming is also an effective way to remove pet hair before it even hits the floor. If your furry friend is comfortable being around the vacuum, consider a groom tool that takes hair and dander right from your pet and into your vacuum. Designed by a veterinarian, the Dr.Smith Pet Hair Fantastic grooming tool attachment fits most standard vacuums and doubles as an upholstery tool to keep your car, stairs, furniture and even clothing pet hair-free.
If your home has carpet or area rugs, you may need to use a steam carpet cleaner to loosen and remove pet hair and dirt trapped deep in the carpet’s fibers. The Royal MRY7910 Carpet Cleaner features two agitator brushes, dual suction nozzles, and handle controls so all the switches you need are at your fingertips. For smaller messes and deep spot cleaning check out the Bissell 1400D Little Green Machine, a compact carpet cleaner that weighs in at only 12 lbs.!
Finally, for chasing down pet hair where your power head can’t reach, consider a universal turbo brush hand held attachment that fits most standard vacuum cleaner extension wands or hose handles. Using a high speed rotating brush that operates by a suction-driven turbine, this attachment is ideal for carpeted stairs, along baseboards, on couches and chairs, and even mattresses.
