Spring Cleaning Tips with Pets!
Spring cleaning is a great way to refresh your home and get rid of clutter. However, if you own a pet, there are some additional considerations to keep in mind. Here are some tips to help you master spring cleaning your home so you and your family (pets obviously included) can feel fresh and clean!
Deep Clean Your Pet's Bedding
Your pet's bedding can get pretty dirty over time, so it's important to give it a deep clean using a pet specific laundry cleaner. Wash any removable covers or bedding in the washing machine with pet-safe detergent. If the bedding is too large to fit in the washing machine, use a spot cleaner to spot-clean it.
Pet hair and dander can quickly build up in your home, so it's important to vacuum regularly. For those hard to remove spots use a pet-safe carpet cleaner. Don't forget to vacuum under furniture and in corners where pet hair and dander can accumulate.
Clean Pet Toys and Accessories
Your pet's toys and accessories can harbor bacteria and germs, so it's important to give them regular deep cleanings. Wash any machine-washable toys in the washing machine, or use a pet-safe cleaner to wipe them down. Use a pet-safe cleaner to clean food and water bowls as well.
Get Rid of Pet Hair on Furniture
If your pet likes to snuggle up on the couch or bed, chances are there is pet hair on your furniture. Use a lint roller or a pet hair remover tool to remove pet hair from furniture. You can also use a vacuum with an upholstery attachment to remove pet hair from furniture.
Check for Any Hazards
Spring cleaning is a good time to check your home for any hazards that could be dangerous to your pet. Make sure any cleaning products you use are pet-safe and keep them out of reach of your pet. Check for any loose cords or other items that your pet could chew on or swallow.
Clean Carpets and Rugs
Carpets and rugs can trap pet hair, dander, and odors, so it's important to give them a good cleaning. Use a carpet cleaner with a pet-safe cleaner to clean carpets and rugs. If you don't have a carpet cleaner, you can rent one from a home improvement store.
Take care of your home and pet like a boss this spring! Happy cleaning!
