How to keep your home clean with pets around

Are you intimidated by the mess your pets make? Clean home with pets, is it possible? Check out our useful and easy tips on how to tackle that issue.

Everyone who’s ever owned pets knows that they’re great companions but also a big responsibility. One of those includes keeping your house clean in order to maintain a high comfort of living and avoid allergies. Even though it might require some time and efforts, the effects will be worth it.

Check out useful tips provided by SPIC AND SPAN. experts to keep yourself and your pets happy, and make sure you both live in a clean and healthy environment.

Wash and brush your pets regularly

Unless you happen to own a hairless sphynx cat, brushing your pet on daily or semi-daily basis is necessary to maintain a clean house – the hair that would end up on your carpet or furniture will be simply brushed out. At the same time, giving your pets regular baths will prevent spreading dirt and odor around the house. If you are a dog owner, please focus on cleaning its paws after every walk, especially when it’s rainy and muddy outside.

Designate a feeding area

Since some pets make quite a mess while eating, it might be a good idea to feed them in an area which is easy to clean (which means away from walls and preferably on a tile floor.) Consider putting your pets’ dishes on a plastic tray to avoid spills and splashes on other surfaces, and wash all of them on a regular basis to avoid smells.

Stock up on lint rollers

Lint rollers are awesome tools that can be used to clean in-between vacuuming. You can use them on clothing, sofas, or pillows – alternatively, adhesive tape may serve the same purpose.

Cleaning with pets means vacuuming regularly

Yes, it might be time-consuming and tedious; however, this step shouldn’t be omitted if you want to keep a spotless home. It depends on how many pets you own, how much they shed, and what kind of floors there are at your place, but vacuuming twice a week is usually a minimum.

Carpets tend to absorb odors easily, so apart from vacuuming, using baking soda to absorb them is a great idea. It is really simple – it just needs to be sprinkled on top of the carpet and vacuumed after a few minutes.

Keep your pets’ beds and toys clean

Toys and beds tend to pick up odors, especially when they’re used by a dog. Be sure to clean them regularly: most pet beds are machine washable, and toys can be cleaned and disinfected with white vinegar solution. It’s safe for pets!
