Pet owners are you tired of the hair, dander, and toys everywhere? You probably are and you might be looking at six ways you can clean your home quickly and with a minimum of effort. The following six tips will help you keep your home cleaner with a less fuss on your part.
Training your Pet
You know dogs can be trained, but did you know cats can be trained too? Your cat can learn quite a bit. They may be stubborn about it, but they can learn just as much as dogs. Cats have the ability to learn names, to learn to stay off certain surfaces, and even to eat in an appropriate location. For example if you own more than one cat each cat can have their own area of the kitchen or other room to eat. They will even go there, sit down, and wait with enough routine and training. The start to cleaning efficiently is to train your pets to help you.
You might train your pets to pick up their toys and put them away. You may train them to clean up their food area or keep off the furniture. Have you had a cat that drops food everywhere and another who comes up and cleans behind them? It’s fun to watch and just one way to keep things clean.
Now your Turn
You have given rules to your pet, so now you need to follow a few yourself.
· Have a bin for your pets toys
· Have a room or area of a room for all pet related items
· Groom your pet daily
You have a start on cleaning sufficiently. The next step is to get a vacuum that is rated for pets. A vacuum that cleans the carpet deeper ensures the pet dander and hair is always removed. It is the most efficient tool in your arsenal.
By training your pets to keep off other things like cats off counters and dogs off the furniture you can run your vacuum with ease and use soap on the counters without issue.
Here are some main products to have on hand:
· Disinfectant wipes for counters
· Swifer like mop where you do not change out the dirty water, but a dirty pad for a cleaner floor.
· Vacuum that removes dirt appropriately with all the accessories for furniture, windows, and curtains.
Now you know what you need on hand. It is time to build a routine for cleaning.
· Run the vacuum once a day
· Use a broom on all other floor surfaces each day, particularly with cats to reduce litter tracking
· Groom your pet to keep dander and fur down, ensuring you always pick up clumps with the vacuum each day
· Reduce the items you have in your home and laying around so you can wipe surfaces with ease instead of moving everything first
· Use dusters for the higher places first then clean the lower areas
· Give your pet a bath before they come in doors to alleviate the collection of dirt that comes in.
By keeping things clean in the first place, training your pet, and sticking to a routine you can make cleaning more efficient. Also having the proper products to clean with makes it easier and quicker.
