Almost any pet owner knows – it can be extremely hard to keep your home clean with furry friends around. Dogs and cats alike present unique challenges that make it seem almost impossible, at times, to keep a home clean.
But here’s the fact of the matter – it’s NOT impossible! While it does take dedication to the cause, you can get back on top of your house so that it stays consistently clean and fresh-feeling.
Keeping On Top of Pet Hair
Out of everything we’re going to cover here, pet hair management is probably the most important. Let pet hair get out of control and you’ll find it just about everywhere – even in the places that your pet rarely seems to go.
Instead of living with the build-up, take a stab at staying on top of it.
As you might assume, vacuuming plays an essential role in this. You might find that you have to vacuum a whole lot more often than you’re used to in order to keep up, but here’s the good news – there are other things that you can do to reduce the amount of vacuuming that may be necessary.
If you don’t already, start brushing your pet just about every day. You’ll be able to get ahead and capture all of the hair that would otherwise be sure to end up on your floor.
You’re probably already aware, but there are special brushes made for pets that make this process much easier and more effective too. Be sure to pick one up next time you’re in a pet store!
Another key part of keeping up with pet hair is running your laundry machine often. Pet hair tends to cling to both bedding and clothing, and you might discover that the lint roller can’t even keep up at times.
By the time you’ve hit the rhythm doing all of this, ensure that you also do the necessary work to clean out your air filter regularly and your furniture from time to time too. If you’re not sure what to clean off your furniture with, try a specialty tool from the pet store. There are some products that function similarly to a lint roller but with much more success.
