If you have a pet, you may want to follow some of these house cleaning tips. That is if you’re going to keep your house nice and clean without your pet’s presence taking over every inch of the home.
Keep carpets clean
Wet or smelly pets can soon have an effect on all of our carpets and rugs. Thankfully, there are some simple and pet-safe ways to get them looking brand new and smelling fresh. All you need to do is sprinkle over a little baking soda and leave it to settle in for half an hour. Vacuum it up, and those smells should be gone. If there’s still a scent, then spray a little white vinegar over your fresh carpet to remove any odors.
Invest in a towel
This might sound simple, but a towel by your door could help to save plenty of cleaning in the long run. This can be great for when you come back from a walk or let your pet in after they’ve been playing in the yard. Simply dry their paws and fur on the towel before letting them loose in the rest of the house.
Some of our pets love to lounge on the couch. If this is the case, then why not invest in a blanket? This can keep our furniture safe from pet hair and stains, and can easily be removed and washed whenever it needs a little freshening.
Brush your pets
Thankfully, brushing your pets can have loads of benefits. It can help you bond with your pet, keep their coat nice and healthy, and prevent their hair from dropping all over the house. Be sure to research how much grooming your pet needs to keep them healthy.
Would you believe you can get special pet hair attachments for your vacuum? These are perfect for getting into all those tight spaces and getting the hair out of material. If you vacuum regularly, then it should stop hair and mess from building up in the first place.
This means the sheets on your bed if you let your pet snuggle down with you and the covers on their pet beds. Hair can quickly build up in both of these places and cause a smell we’d rather not experience. Plus, keeping them both clean should hopefully mean that you have less mess to clean up at the end.
Remove pet hair from clothes
It might not be long before a lint roller becomes your new best friend. This helps to remove all that pet hair from your clothes. As well as freshening your outfit, this can help to keep your washing machine nice and healthy as all that hair could block up the pipes.
