Having a friendly (and fluffy) companion in your home is a wonderful thing, it can boost our moods and even promotes good brain health.
That being said, having a pet in your home can also feel like having a roommate who can’t clean after themselves. Whether you have a cat, dog, guinea pig, rabbit or any other common house pet, you’ve probably already realized just how quickly things can get dirty.
From pet dander to fur, cat litter, pet stains, and everything they can bring from the outdoors, cleaning after your pets can feel like being stuck in a revolving door with no exit.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way! With some helpful cleaning tips and a little bit of effort, you can make your home the paradise you’ve always dreamed of. Here’s our ultimate cleaning checklist for pet owners.
The Home Cleaning Checklist for Pet Owners
1. Don’t Forget to Brush Your Pet
Brushing your pets regularly has many benefits that are not only beneficial for them, but also beneficial for you as a pet owner who wants a clean home.
By actively brushing your pets every few days, or once a week, you are taking a proactive approach to removing pet hairs before it leads to matting and clumps of hair around your home.
2. Stay Ahead with Regular Cleaning & Vacuuming
This probably isn’t a surprise, but keeping up with your regular home cleaning will go a long way.
Be it lint rolling, dusting, vacuuming or cleaning surfaces and floors, regular cleaning will get rid of a lot of visible debris and pet hairs.
Be sure to shake out all blankets and surface rugs to get more dust and hairs out before vacuuming.
3. Allergies? Get Duct Cleaning & Air Scrubbing
If you are allergic to your pet, we highly recommend that you get your home’s ducts professionally cleaned.
Ducts and vents already get quite filthy and full of dust as it is. With a pet, this only intensifies, leading to poor air quality and even making your HVAC systems less efficient in the long run.
When was the last time you cleaned your ducts? Contact your local duct cleaning professionals to improve your home’s air quality. By choosing Enviropure, you can also get access to our air scrubbers, which removes pet dander, pollen, dust and other contaminants from your home’s air.
4. If Your Pet Goes Outside, Invest in Outdoor Rugs
It’s natural for pets to love going outdoors. It’s the one place where they can roam free and burn some energy.
But in doing so, they can get quite dirty. Especially under their paws, where dirt can be trapped and later introduced into your homes carpets, rugs and unfortunately, furniture.
That’s why we recommend getting an outdoor rug or doormat, they can really help clean your pets paws following their outdoor adventure.
5. Professional Carpet & Furniture Cleaning
Even if you don’t have pets, your carpets and cloth furniture are bound to get dirty over time.
Though when you have pets, they get filthy much quicker, trapping pet dander, dust, dirt and more. With regular vacuuming, there’s only so much you can get out.
That’s where the benefit of professional carpet cleaning comes in. Commercial grade vacuums can clean the oldest, most worn out carpets and furniture to remove all dust, dirt and other buildup.
If you find that your carpet or furniture cleaning efforts nearly go unnoticed, it’s time to call up a professional carpet cleaner.
6. Odor Removal & Pet Stain Removal
No matter how well trained your pet is, accidents can happen and they can affect the cleanliness of your home by either leaving stains or unpleasant odors.
Whether it is pet urine, pet feces or vomit, the odors that follow are extremely awful and can be difficult to control and remove.
While you might get used to the odours, guests and visitors will certainly notice it. For the most effective odor removal or pet stain removal services, Enviropure Home Services is here!
