Pets are a welcome addition to any family home. But along with their cuteness comes a steady supply of dirt, odor, and hair. Thankfully, there are things you can do to stay ahead of it. Here are a few cleaning strategies to help.

1. Groom Your Pet Frequently

Animal friends are notorious for shedding volumes of hair, releasing dander into the air, and tracking dirt and dust across the house. If you have a pet in the home, it’s almost inescapable! Even if you can’t stop it from happening, you can influence where the majority of it happens. By frequently and consistently grooming your pet in a controlled space, you can stay ahead of the problem. When possible, do it outside.

2. Clean the House More Often

Homes with pets will want to increase the frequency of your cleaning efforts. How much cleaning depends on how many (and what kind) of pets you have. Got some really cute but messy fur babies? Plan on regularly cleaning up after their adorable drool. During the fall and spring months, you may need to be even more vigilant, a many pets shed a whole lot more during these seasons.

3. Use Quality Cleaning Tools and Products

Good tools and products can go a long way in helping you keep the house clean and safe for your animals. A vacuum cleaner with a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter will help you remove pet dander. Better air quality will keep dust and allergies down. It’s also a good idea to use pet-safe cleaning products on all your surfaces. Curious critters are not above sniffing and licking chemicals, so be sure to use pH balanced solutions that are mild and easy to rinse or wipe away.
