Pet-Friendly Cleaning Tips

Keeping a clean home with pets can be a challenge, but it’s definitely achievable with some thoughtful strategies. Here are some pet-friendly cleaning tips to help you maintain a clean and healthy living space:

    • Keep lint rollers handy to quickly remove pet hair from furniture and clothing.
    • Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to trap allergens and pet dander. Vacuuming regularly is essential for maintaining a clean home with pets.

    • Keep paw wipes near the entrance to clean your pet’s paws after outdoor activities. This helps prevent dirt and also mud from being tracked into your home.
  10. Train and Establish Boundaries:
    • Train your pets to stay off furniture or certain areas of the house if you prefer. Positive reinforcement and also consistency are key to successful training.
