Pets are very important for home. They make you feel relaxed and healthier, but at the same time, they give you more work to do as you need to keep your house tidy and clean. If this is your case, don’t worry. There are quite a few utensils and techniques you can implement to keep your home perfectly clean and without unpleasant odors:
1Delimit spaces. It’s important not to place your pet’s food in the kitchen; your animal moves around the area constantly and the food cans may attract insects.
2Vacuum the sofa, floor, carpets, and other surfaces regularly. These areas are particularly affected by the dirt your pet carries in its paws. If your pet is moulting its hair, then repeat this activity twice a week.
3Take care of fluff. You can’t keep your pet from hair shedding, but you can control the amount of it in your house. To remove the fluff, you can use a pet hair remover, rubber gloves, adhesive tape, or a wet cloth or sponge. Make sure to clean the tools after you use them.
4Tidy up and clean your pet’s objects. Wash the fish tank regularly. Clean your pet’s bed and remove the stool from the sandbox on a daily basis. Clean the area around their food plate and put their toys and food away. You can add a little apple vinegar to the water when cleaning these things to make the good smell last longer.
5If your pet ‘goes” into an unusual or inappropriate spot, remove the stool right away. Then use some disinfectant and aromatic product. You can also use a little baking soda diluted in some vinegar. The vinegar acts as a disinfectant substance, and the baking soda helps to neutralize and eliminate the odor. Leave the mix to stand for a while and then dry. Make sure to check the components in the products you use to clean. If you use some product that contains ammonia, for instance, it will not only intensify the smell instead of eliminating it, but also it will be toxic for your pet.
6Brush and comb your pet regularly, at least once a week, and do it in an open space. You can dilute a cup of apple vinegar in a liter of water and then spray the mixture all over your pet’s hair, and then brush it. Another option is to sprinkle some baking soda on the hair before brushing it. Either of these tricks will help you keep the bad odors away and you won’t need to bathe your pet so often, not to mention that you will save a great deal of hair and dirt from floating around your home.
