Our pets are important to us, whether you have dogs, cats, rabbit, chinchillas, or any other variety of furbabies. There is a special and symbiotic relationship. We take care of their needs, and in exchange for our love and provision, they give us companionship and loyalty. There is no argument that having pets can greatly enrich your life and those around you.
Clean Pet Care
However, with pets there is always extra mess. Pet owners don’t usually mind cleaning up after their furry friends, and accept the added odors, dirt and stains as part of the bargain. But keeping your home clean is not an impossible expectation, and can be managed with some strategic planning in order to deal with the inevitable messes that come with having pets.
The most common thought when people think of pets is shedding. Shedding is a natural process for your pet, and hair from your cats or dogs can end up anywhere and everywhere. Hair can coat your bed, chair and couch, and even float in the air landing on your dinner plate or in your glass. One strategy for dealing with shedding is to plan ahead when you are looking for a dog or cat. There are breeds that do not shed. Before you decide on your new pet, check into what choices you have if shedding hair is a concern.
Extra Steps for Shedding Pets
Another strategy for dealing with shedding is to make brushing your cat or dog a regular part of your routine. Hair on the grooming brush means there is less on your furniture, and it minimizes the amount of hair floating through the air in your home. Brushing your dog or cat once a day when they are shedding the most can cut down dramatically on discarded hair in your home. Another good hint is to groom your pet outside if possible. Any hair that doesn’t get stuck to the brush won’t land in your home, but float away outside.
Breathing in hair from your pet can be a concern, especially for those with allergies. Using an air filter with High Efficiency Particle Arresting (HEPA) is an effective tool in is minimizing the problem. Be sure to clean or change the filter as recommended to maintain the best results.
Another way to deal with your pet’s shedding is to invest in a vacuum cleaner that is good quality and easy to use and maneuver. Even with bathing, brushing, and using an air filter, shedding can still become a problem. A small hand held vacuum is convenient for quickly cleaning sofas and chairs. Other tools to use include microfiber cloths, broom and mops for hardwood floors.
Pet Care Plan for Your Home
Accidents will happen with any pet, so the best strategy is to clean up any messes immediately so stains and odor don’t have a chance to set in. You may also limit which rooms your pet has access to, as well. Keeping your home clean with pets is possible when you plan ahead and use the right equipment for the task.
