If you have a small teething puppy, or any other dog craving a firm chew around the house, go ahead and ever-so-lightly, sprinkle black pepper across the surface of your Persian rug (http://rugandcarpetclinic.com). Yes, we know it doesn’t sound very orthodox, but it is an ancient practice confirmed by several thousands of years of its application – and dozens of years of our Denver rug cleaning expert recommendations. It really works quite well, and will prevent damage from smaller animals and even some insects. There is no need to worry about pepper damage to the rug either, it is a non-reacting natural herb and we know now that it has a relatively neutral pH reading.
Mind you of course, that we are rug restoration specialist and not veterinarians. So do consult your veterinarian if you chose this method for your rugs health.
