Pets are like family for all of us and we need to treat them well and also take good care of them. When we bring them home we need to be assured that they get well adjusted to the new house and the new people. At the same time it is also very important to make the house also get adjusted to the new pet.
Cleaning of home with a dog being a part of the house is a challenging task as they come up with their own kind of various cleaning problems like mud, dander, dirt and hair. If we follow careful cleaning habits then living with dog becomes more of fun then hard work. Depending on the kind of breed the dog is you can always plan to bathe the dog at least once a month which will help to reduce the shedding and also dander. Always place a doormat at the entrance which your dog always uses. This doormat should be absorbent.
It is a good idea to eliminate the carpets and instead opt for hardwood or even tiles as flooring which is an easy option to clean. Carpets are bound to harbour dirt and also hair. If you want a carpet at home then it is advisable to invest in vacuum cleaner which is specially designed for pet owners.
You can also install HEPA air filters in your existing air conditioning system and also the heating system. These filters play an important role of catching all the debris that passes through the duct and also stop them from entering the air and also settling on the surface of home. Keeping the door of the bedroom closed is also a good idea as this will help to keep the dog away from entering into the room. If you opt to sleep with the dog then a comforter should be used in order to make the dog lie on it which in turn will help to keep the bed clean.
Leather furniture is also a good option to use for furniture as compared to fabric because pet hair is bound to get stuck to leather more than fabric. If in case you use the fabric upholstery then hair from it can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
