5 Reasons to Adopt Your Next Pet

5 Reasons to Adopt Your Next Pet

There is no better joy in the world than to have a pet as your companion. Pets complete our life and make every bad day seem not so bad. Who wouldn’t agree on this? If you have plans to bring home a furry friend, here are 5 reasons to adopt your next pet. Let’s together put an end to pet homelessness for good.

1. Adopting puts a stop to puppy mills

Majority of the pets you buy from a pet store, a local breeder or online come from puppy mills. A puppy mill is a commercial dog breeding home/factory where pets are bred solely for profit. Female dogs are bred over and over again, young puppies are housed in small, wire-floored cages and separated from their mothers at a very young age. Each time you buy a pet, you support these cruel puppy mills. Find out more on where you’re putting your money into the next time you plan to get a pet home.

2. Stray animals deserve better

Every year millions of stray animals are euthanized. Reason being, homes couldn't be found for them. A sad truth, isn’t it? Stray animals freely wandering the streets often have a hard time surviving on their own. Some meet tragic ends with road accidents, others are forced to live with broken limbs and health issues. Some are abused at the hands of uncivilized humans. And a vast majority of them are malnourished and don’t even make it to adulthood. Life on the streets is certainly not all rosy. It’s the survival of the fittest. But every dog or cat out there on the streets deserves a forever home and companion to love them. Why buy a pet from a store when you can give a home to the more unfortunate ones.

3. Shelter pets are cheaper on the pocket

A pet from a shelter home has already had all of its vaccinations. Some shelters also have their animals spayed and neutered before they are put up for adoption. Why go through all the hassle of spaying and neutering, when you can get a healthy pet from a shelter home. Adoption fees are a
lso lighter on the pocket than buying a pet from a pet store. 

4. You save a Life

Adopting from a local rescue shelter gives a pet so many reasons to love you. There are millions of strays in shelter homes, some abused, some rescued from emaciation, some given up by homeowners and some made it there simply because they couldn’t find homes. Each time you open up your home to such strays rather than buying a pet, you save a life and you have something to be proud of. Adopting from a shelter not only saves one life but you also free up a spot at the shelter to save another pet’s life.

5. Shelter pets make great life companions

Often there is a misconception that shelter pets are broken and have temperamental issues. While some may, most pets are simply lonely and in need of a friend. These pets can bond really well and would love you the same way a pure breed would do. You just need to give them a chance. And even if you have an obsession for pure breeds, you can get one at a local shelter at a cheaper price.

Go visit a shelter. Find that waggy tail and wiggly butt you wish to have as your life companion and spread the word about pet adoption. #AdoptDontShop

6 Tips to Avoid Carpet Stains

6 Tips to Avoid Carpet Stains

A new carpet is a big investment, so of course, you want to make sure that you take every precaution to maintain the carpets in their proper state for as long as possible. A properly maintained carpet can have a life as long as 10 years. Carpets undergo a lot of wear and tear in the house. Especially when there are kids and pets running around the house the whole time, some carpet spills and accidents are bound to happen. So even with all this, how do you prevent the carpet from getting spoilt soon and increase its life? Here are some tips for it.

Get a strain resistant treatment done for the carpet

Treating your carpet with a strain resistant protectant will give it an extra protection from wear and tear for as long as the protective surface holds its ground. Many of the recent day carpets come with this, but you can apply one yourself or hire a professional to do it for you.

Clean/Vacuum the carpet regularly

Cleaning and vacuuming your carpet regularly will help prevent stains and remove any dirt present on it. It is very easy for dirt and debris to get trapped inside the carpet's fibres. These dirt particles get accumulated and can accelerate the aging process of your carpet. Make sure you clean your carpet at least once a week (although more often is always better).

No shoes rule for carpets

No shoes or any other footwear allowed on the carpet. Make everyone in the house follow this rule. This will result in a lot less dirt accumulating on the carpet. It will also be easier to clean it.

Make use of plastic mats and rugs

Use a plastic mat under the furniture and in heavy traffic areas of the house. This will prevent the carpet from getting worn out soon. Also, if you eat in a carpeted room, using a plastic mat will help in avoiding any accidental spills.

Immediately treat spills

Any accidental spill should be treated immediately before it sinks in the carpet. Do not rub anything on the carpet. Instead, dab up the moisture to avoid any damage.

Get your carpet professionally cleaned

Even though you can clean your carpet regularly, its best to get your carpet professionally cleaned twice every year. Since the professionals use special cleaning techniques and treating methods for carpets, a professional carpet cleanup will greatly improve the life of your carpet and give it a brand new finish.

5 Things That Hide Deep in Your Carpets

5 things that hide deep in your carpets

Some homeowners believe that carpets that are cleaned regularly and look kempt need no professional cleaning. In order to avoid the expense, they prefer to clean it themselves, which is not enough. There are several things that can get embedded in the fibres of your carpets which can go unnoticed and ruin them as well as affect your health. Below are five things that settle deep into your carpets which you could probably be unaware of.


If you or any family member goes into a sneezing frenzy soon after stepping into the house, it could be due to allergens that are trapped in you carpets. Carpets attract all outdoor allergens that are under the soles of our shoes. These allergens settle on carpets and when stirred up become airborne.


Factories use various dyes, glues and other chemicals in manufacturing carpets. Carpets after installation release these chemicals reducing the indoor air quality.


If the carpet is damp or installed in a high moisture area, it will soon become a home to mould. Mould grows and spreads quickly on damp surfaces and your carpet could be an ideal place for mould growth.


Day in and day out we walk on carpets with our shoes on, not realizing the soles of our shoes come in contact with various surfaces and carry dirt and bacteria. When we walk on carpets using the same shoes, we deposit all the dirt and bacteria on their surface making them not only dirty but also unhealthy.

Dust Mites

These microscopic organisms are responsible for large amounts of allergens in your home. Although relatively harmless, their body fragments and the waste they produce are harmful to human health. These could trigger allergic reactions like sneezing, wheezing and coughing.

The best way to get rid of the things that live in your carpets is to have them cleaned professionally. When it comes to any kind of carpet cleaning, Classique ChemDry is at your service. Call us on 1800 213 006 to know more about our carpet cleaning expertise.
