dogs, petsHaving pets in the house is not always an easy thing. Many people prefer to have their cats and dogs with them everywhere because home is not home without their pets. There are consequences, however; pets shed and make messes. Controlling the amount of dander, accidents, smells, and more can seem daunting.

Control hair by being prepared.

Pets can shed anywhere, but they often have their favorite spots. Help your pet establish those spots and encourage them to limit the amount of shedding to specific places. That way, you can limit the cleaning to those spots. It helps to place a blanket or bed in that spot which you know your pet will use. So, all you need to do is wash the bedding.

Invest in steam or spot cleaner.

Cleaners now come in many sizes and styles, and some are made for the pet owner. If your pet’s messes are rare and small, a small steam cleaner or carpet washer will suffice. If they happen more often, you might consider a larger steam cleaner. You can find very affordable models that are well-worth the money.

Create a vacuuming schedule.

Vacuuming is essential for a clean house with pets. It is easy to get behind in vacuuming because it is not most people’s favorite chore. Make a vacuuming schedule and stick to it. If you don’t want to vacuuming every week, pick and choose the spots that need it the most. Vacuum those each week, and then the rest every other week.
