Cleaning is part of having a pet; every pet parent knows that fact. It is amazing and warm to have a cat or a dog. However, it is challenging to keep your home clean having a four-legged family member. You have to deal with fur, hair, allergens, pollen, sticks, and other things that may affect your family members and cleanliness of your home. We have made a list of the best tips and tricks you should follow in order to keep your home clean. Let’s explore them together.
1. Prevent Dirt from Invading Your House:
Here is how to keep the dirt outside.
•You will not prevent all the dirt from entering your house. However, most of the dirt can be prevented by placing mats outside and inside your home. Teach your pets how to use them and they will learn to clean their legs before entering the home.
•Place a towel at the favorite entrance of your pet and clean their dirty legs.
• Your pets can be trained easily not to enter certain areas of the home or to wait until getting their feet wiped. This will help a lot to keep most of the dirt and grime outside your home.
2. Fur & Brushing:
Every pet parent should obtain these items.
• Lint roller.
• Handheld Vacuum.
• Pet Parents Vacuum.
Every item has its unique uses. Lint rollers are designed to remove fur from your upholstery, beds, and window treatments quickly and effectively. A handled vacuum can be used if you have guests to cleaning any spots or stains. Having a pet requires regular vacuuming. You have to vacuum thoroughly at least twice a week.
Besides all of this, you will need commercial pet carpet cleaners. If you do not want to spend money on commercial products or want eco-friendly products, make your own pet cleaner. White vinegar is a great carpet cleaner. Put it in a spray bottle and remove spots and stains from carpets and upholstery.
3. Pet Beds, Collars, and Toys:
The first rule of having a pet is to buy pet beds with removable, washable covers. You will simply remove the cover and wash it. Use laundry detergent and baking soda. Baking soda works as an odorant and has antimicrobial effects.
Collars and toys can be washed using a dishwasher but read the manufacturer’s instructions first.
If you want to clean the toys and collars thoroughly, add a pet’s shampoo to warm water and soak them for an hour. Rinse well and leave them in the air to dry.
