Kids and pets
Kids and pets are messy creatures. It is a constant battle and typically a losing one most of the time. Kids will spill sticky drinks, milky drinks and probably paint their mum and dad’s carpet a new colour. Cats will have no problem scratching a hole in a carpet, and dogs love chewing. It is a recipe for disaster if ever there was one. But don't banish the kids to the garden shed or chase the dog and cat up the street. They have no idea of the cost of a new carpet and after all, they're only doing what comes naturally.
