Pets are like family for all of us, and we need to treat them well and 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 essential to make the house also get adjusted to the new pet.
Cleaning of home with a dog is a part of the house is challenging 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 a dog becomes more fun than hard work. Depending on the dog’s breed, you can always plan to bathe the dog at least once a month, helping reduce the shedding and 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 harbor dirt and also hair. If you want a carpet at home, it is advisable to invest in a vacuum cleaner 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 in catching all the debris that passes through the duct and stop them from entering the air and settling on the home’s surface. Keeping the bedroom door closed is also a good idea as this will help keep the dog away from entering the room. If you opt to sleep with the dog, then a comforter should be used to make the dog lie on it, helping keep the bed clean.
Leather furniture is also a good option for furniture compared to fabric because pet hair is bound to get stuck to leather more than fabric. If you use the fabric upholstery, hair can be wiped off with a damp cloth.
