Keeping the House Clean with Pets – 5 Tips

Pet Cleaning ServicesThose of us who are pet lovers are constantly receiving love and companionship from out pets, and so we tend to overlook the hair, dust, dander, odor and other issues that often come with having a pet as part of the family.

Keeping the house clean with petsBut, if you’re planning to host the office, neighborhood, or community group in your home during the holidays, for best results you’ll want to use these cleaning tips so that your guests (even those who are not pet lovers) have a great time in your home.Before you begin, make sure to ask about all cleaning products that will be used in your home, and verify that they are pet safe.

1. Clean the Carpets and Rugs

Have a professional company clean your carpet and rugs. Both hold stains and dirt that you can see, but they also hide the source of odors and other pollutants that are not visible. You’ll be amazed at how good they look and smell once they’ve been professionally cleaned. Look for seasonal coupons in your mailbox that offer this service. It’s true that you can rent equipment and do it yourself; but unless you’ve done this kind of cleaning before, trying it for the first time just before the party may not be the best idea, and could possibly end up costing more with results that are not as good.

2. Clean Windows
If your pet drools on your windowsills and/or leaves nose prints on windows, the glass on your storm door or sliding doors, be sure to clean these away, particularly in the rooms where your guests will spend most of their time. As pet owners we may find their nose prints endearing, but others might not see them as being so appetizing from across the buffet table.

3. Clean, Vacuum, and Roller Upholstered Furniture
If your pets are allowed on the furniture, make sure you have your furniture cleaned if there is an odor. Vacuum the pet hair and dander with the soft brush attachment, and finish by using a sticky roller to remove the last bit of hair to avoid having your pet’s hair come off on your guests’ clothes when they get up from the sofa or chair.

4. Engage a Home Cleaning Service
Having a cleaning service come in and clean your home before the party is a real treat and a fair exchange for all the extra work that hosting the gathering creates. Many services are reasonably priced, and having someone else clean your home will free up your time to be creative with decorations and food. You may find that you like it so much you’ll continue to have this done throughout the year.

5. Clean the Air
Use a high efficiency particle arresting (HEPA) air purifier to remove airborne hair, fur, dander and odor that are a part of being a pet owner. That first impression is crucial to the success of your party, and you want to be the only one that greets your guests at the door, rather than having an embarrassing pet odor beat you to it. Cleaning the air is a great way to freshen your home every day and make it a nicer place to be for you, and for those who may not be the pet lover that you are. Your guests will think you’re a fabulous home maker–your friends and family will really know and appreciate the difference the air purifier has made.
