Your pet may be a beloved member of your family, but that doesn't always quell your frustration when your dog or cat tracks mud and dirt all over your house. Trying to keep your carpet clean can become a daily chore when your pet is transferring filth from outside.
The Hindustan Times recently offered tips to pet-owners who are working to protect their carpets and rugs. The news provider suggests keeping your pets' nails short and smooth because longer and sharper nails can damage threads. Also, any stain or soil on your carpet should be tended to as soon as possible with a mixture of water and liquid detergent. The longer the stain stays, the harder it is to remove.
"Another intelligent idea would be to place door mats at the entrance," according to the news source. "This would enable the pet to maybe leave the outside dirt stuck in its feet on the door mat instead of getting it all the way in onto the carpet."
Cape Cod Doormats are durable and stylish. Available in 29 different colors, these mats are offered in a variety of sizes to fit your patio or porch.

If this scenario sounds familiar, it may be time to try and encourage the kids to take their shoes off in the front hall. Try setting up shoe bins or another designated spot for shoes, and make it part of their daily routine.
