I’m sure it’s a daily struggle for all of us pet owners -the constant shedding from almost every kind of dog and cat is bound to happen. From the day you welcome a new puppy or kitten into your home you know the task of keeping up after them is there.
Finding the solution to work in your home to control the smell and cleaning can be hard. Here are a few things I do that seem to help a lot.
Spot Scrub: Wherever the scene of the crime is I start with spot scrubbing. Odor killing and stain removal for pets are the two biggest things I look for in a spot cleaner.
Baking Soda: It definitely helps to deodorize a room. If it’s my carpet I start by sprinkling around the area and if the smell is still pretty bad I let the container in the room to absorb the smell. This also works wonders in kitty litter boxes. When I change them, I sprinkle it in the bottom of their litter box and on the floor under the box. Baking soda and vinegar water is a perfect stain remover when steam cleaning and scrubbing your carpet.
Grooming and bathing your dog: Oh yes! It makes a huge difference. Grooming is essential for any dog as well as nail clippings.
Vacuum every day: I try to keep up with my vacuuming. I don’t always do it every day but I try to. I also use baking soda before I vacuum and let it sit in the carpet about a half hour before running the sweeper.
Odor control room spray: This one is a big one. I always have a spray bottle of odor control spray to help freshen up the house especially before any visitors come.
Cleaning can be a daunting task as a pet owner but we could never trade that for all the love and affection we get from our loving furry friends.
