Pets are great! They bring so much joy into our life until they make a mess in our home. We love our pets, but we don’t love the dirt and odor they can bring! So we wonder, how do we keep our home clean AND have our pets live indoors. Let us reassure you that there is a way to have both. There’s just a few things you need to know.
Our Top Tips for Cleaning Your Home With Indoor Pets
- Add Doormats. Adding doormats helps absorb dirt, mud, and water from your pet’s paws and decrease it from spreading around your home.
- Regularly Bathe Your Pets. Routine baths keep your pets smelling fresh and can decrease allergen levels by 84%!
- Clean Pet Stains Right Away. The worst thing you can do is wait! Treating pet stains quickly keeps it from seeping into your carpet padding and causing permanent damage. Dogs will go right back to the same spot if not cleaned properly.
- Get Your Carpet Cleaned Professionally! Vacuuming and spot cleaning always help. The tips above are a good start as well! However, the EPA recommend that homes with children and pets should have their carpet cleaned professionally every 3 to 6 months for the best results and cleanest home.
