I remember the first time I brought my tiny Yorkshire puppies home like it was yesterday. First thing they did when I put them on my carpet was pee all over. At the time, I had no carpet cleaners and I didn’t know what to do… I ended up using… oh the thought brings back painful memories. I used paper towels.
Two years later and I discover that Arthur, my lovely male, likes to mark every corner of our house. He is neutered but that is not stopping him (he was neutered at 6 months of age).
In general, smaller breeds have small bladders and tend to have more accidents.
I made this post to share what I, personally use to clean my carpets
Long story short, Bissell has all my money
Here’s a list of what I am currently using depending on the “mess” size
*Click the name of the product to be linked to its amazon page*
- Price: $89.00 on Amazon
- Portable with cord
- Light weight
- Must be cleaned frequently otherwise it will be a nightmare to clean
- Over all, saved my life at the beginning of potty training
- Price: $75.00 on Amazon
- Super light
- Easy to clean
- Good for smaller messes
- Much easier to handle than the one above, but it gets full fast
After a while of doing spot cleaning, I noticed lighter carpet and darker in places that I haven’t cleaned. So I got a carpet shampooer that I use few times a year. This one is heavy duty. The alternative is to rent a carpet shampooer from a store in your area.
- Price: $137.24 on Amazon
- Large and heavy
- Has a warming functionality to keep cleaning water warm
- Easy to use
- Too heavy for me to use often but I still use it when needed
Hope this helped!
The cleaning formula that I use changes but I have used most scents until I get tired of them and change them up.
Pet Stain & Odor formula is one that I am currently using
