Essential Apartment Cleaning Tips for Pet Owners
May 7, 2021
Whether you’re a new pup parent (congrats!) or just trying to get a better handle on your household, these cleaning tips will help to keep your apartment nearly spotless.
- Invest in a quality vacuum (maybe a robotic one). Cat and dog hair can become pervasive quickly, so a top-notch vacuum is essential. Find one with an upholstery attachment to tackle furniture, or consider investing in an automatic vacuum you can run easily each morning with just one touch of a button.
- Bring outdoor rugs indoors. Outdoor rugs are designed to repel water and dirt, which is what makes them so ideal for lounging pets. Place a small one in front of your door to help clean muddy paws, and sprinkle them throughout your home wherever your pets like to get cozy.
- Get into a grooming routine. A clean home actually starts with a well-groomed pet! The more frequently you brush your pup or cat, the less they’ll shed. Regularly trimming their nails will prevent scratching of furniture, too.
