Pet owners often consider their dogs or cats as true members of their family. These furry friends bring endless joy and comfort to their homes. They do, however, come with the responsibility of cleaning up after them.
Pets can defecate anywhere, leaving odors and other unpleasant sensations in their wake. In addition, they may also shed excessively. These factors and more can make it challenging to maintain the cleanliness of your home.
Here are some tips and tricks you can use to resolve these issues quickly.
Washing and Drying
It is highly important to wash and dry all the items that your pets use daily. Otherwise, they can hold on to odors and bacteria. Make sure that the following items are regularly cleaned:
- cushion covers on your furniture
- bedding, blankets, sheets, and linens (if you allow pets on your bed)
- food bowls and toys
- collars and leashes
Regular baths are necessary to give your pets a clean scent. Whether you choose to set an appointment with a groomer, bathe them at home or both, you should follow a regular weekly schedule. This will help maintain your pet’s cleanliness and hygiene.
If your pet has sensitive skin, you may want to use probiotic dog shampoo. Like regular dog shampoo, it will remove dirt. However, unlike some dog shampoos, probiotic dog shampoos won’t upset the pH balance of your pets’ coats and is great for his digestive system.
Baking soda is an amazing odor neutralizer for your home. However, you may not know that it can be also use to deal with your pets’ odors. Simply sprinkle the baking soda on your couch cushions or pet’s bed, then allow it to sit for a few minutes before vacuuming it up.
For more serious pet odors, you can also use vinegar as a natural cleaning option. Dilute the vinegar with a bit of water and spray it on your carpet or floor. Vinegar can be combined with baking soda on your bedding or cushions for that odor-eliminating power.
HEPA Air Filter
If you have allergies, a HEPA filter can tackle any pet odor or dander issues. This mechanical filter traps harmful particles by forcing air through a fine mesh. HEPA filters are available for some air purifiers and even vacuum cleaners.
Hydrogen Peroxide and Citrus
Another great option for getting rid of pet odors is hydrogen peroxide and citrus. Hydrogen peroxide helps neutralize odor, while citrus acts as a natural enzymatic cleaner.
