It may seem counter-intuitive to have carpets and food in the same setting but it actually does make sense for a restaurant to have this. Carpets prevent slip and falls as well as other numerous benefits. Here are essential carpet features that are great in a restaurant setting.

Dark Colours

There are different types of dirt and stains that occur on restaurant carpets. Aside from food, you have frequent traffic from waiting staff and from guests. The high traffic will add ample amounts of dirt to the carpet and will show discoloration. It’s best to stick with dark carpet colors to avoid unsightly stains showing up.

Synthetic Material

The carpet will eventually have to get a professional cleaning. The food that gets into the carpet can attract bacteria and mold. It can also cause unwanted odors. Synthetic carpet is easy to clean and is also safe because it can help prevent slip and falls. Carpet is less dangerous than hard flooring if a spill happens.

Dampens Sound

Pet mess Management – Why pets make their messes on carpets and furniture

Posted on Updated on

dogWhen our pets have an accident it’s almost always on the carpet, rug, furniture or even items of clothing. If you’ve noticed this you may be wondering why they choose these areas over easy to clean tiles or wood floor. There are a few evolutionary theories and ways to prevent the pet accident from happening on the carpet.

For cats and dogs the carpet and soft textures are comforting. They can provide stability while your pet is vomiting. For young puppies they are often brought up in kennels where they are taught to go to the bathroom on puppy pads. Carpets resemble puppy pads and consequently they associate it with a safe place to go to the bathroom or vomit there.

Cats can associate carpets with territory. Square shaped items and structures are boxes and carpet, are perceived as closures to hide in or bring warmth and comfort. Carpets can also resemble grass or soil to come extent. In the wild cats will bury their vomit of feces. The connection is still there when they’re indoors.

Pet messes need careful carpet cleaning treatment. Until help arrives you should soak up urine spills with paper towels. Urine, vomit and poop can be dried with baking soda. This powder also helps reduce unpleasant smells.

Professional carpet cleaners use powerful cleaning equipment together with efficient cleaning solutions. For organic messes produced by your pet, enzyme treatment is needed to break down the mess. Eco-friendly cleaning solutions are also suggested to maintain your pet’s health.

Vivid Cleaning offers excellent carpet cleaning services. We can handle all your pet messes as well as any other steam cleaning needed for your furniture. Our cleaning services are available in Toronto and the GTA. Schedule a cleaning appointment with us today.
