If you have pets, you know how much of a challenge it can be to keep your home looking and smelling clean. Pets can be messy and, while lovable and fun, they don’t usually clean up after themselves or wipe their feet when they come inside. And, as is the case with an older pet or a new puppy, there are always going to be accidents and that can lead to bad odours, carpet stains and more. If you want your home to smell fresh and clean even with pets, keep reading as we share some of our favourite house cleaning tips that will make your home look and smell fresh and clean again. Let’s get started:
5 Tips To Keep Your House Super Clean With Pets
Clean The Litter Box- one of the strongest pet odours you will find in your home is your cat’s litter box. To keep your home smelling fresh and clean, keep the litter box clean and wash it on a regular basis with a 50:50 mixture of vinegar and water.
Clean Furniture And Carpets- your furniture and carpets can become dirty or stained from your pets leaving your home looking and smelling bad. For a super clean home, use an enzyme-based cleaning product such as Naturally Gone® which is designed to remove pet stains and odours from carpets, furniture and area rugs. Once you have these clean, be sure to treat them with an anti-stain furniture and carpet treatment to avoid any future stains and make cleanup easier. You can also use Pet Proud Carpet Freshener to keep your carpets smelling fresh and clean between vacuuming.
Remove Pet Hair- to remove everyday pet odours around the house, remove any pet hair that is let when they shed or sit on the furniture. Excessive pet hair will not only leave your home looking dingy, it can also make it smell like your pet. Use a special pet hair remover roller or duct tape wrapped around your hand or a sponge to remove pet hair quickly and easily from any surface.
Clean Floors With Baking Soda- baking soda is safe to use on any hard surface and it can neutralise pet odours on contact.
