Keeping your pet clean will help you keep on top of the hygiene of your houses. For larger pets like dog and cats, regular bathing and grooming prevents excessive moulting. But if the moulting persists, consider trimming their coats (if they are long-haired) or place old sheets and towels in places they tend to rest.

Cats are also renown for shredding things with their claws. Ensure to buy scratching posts to prevent this. Dog claws sometimes are just as troublesome for your furniture, thus occasional nail-clipping is advised.

Smaller pets like hamsters should never be allowed to run completely free in your home as not only will they poop in the rooms, they may also chew on wires which is a serious threat to their well-being.


Vacuum Cleaning

Pet hairs have become such a common issue many brand-name vacuums have created series of models specifically designed to combat this conundrum. Hoovers such a Dyson are expensive but worth every penny. But take into account what kind of floor you have, if it’s carpet or wood. If your pets go on furniture, make sure to get one that has a nozzle you can attach to clean upholstery.


Cleaning up After Pet’s

Nature calls at even the most inopportune times. Owning a dog, it is expected you will come down stairs one morning to find them cowering in shame as you see the mess they made while you slept.

Cleaning it up is not a glamorous job, but it is necessary. Urine has an acidic quality which chews through carpet and even wood eventually. Thus if your pet messes clean it up as quickly as possible. Urine should at least be blotted with a cloth dampened with hot water. But it is recommended to clean it with a cleaning spray safe to use on the surface.  

Fecal matter should be picked up using doggy bags, and then the area treated with carpet cleaner and plenty of hot water. Ideally use a scented cleaner, to drown out the scent because dogs will revisit places they have done their business previously as they can smell it.

For cats, ensure you have a litter laid out where they can easily access it and empty at least twice daily or as soon as your cat has done their business.

Other pets like hamsters and gerbils should be cleaned out daily or you might find it difficult to keep on top of their mess.  


Clean Your Pets Belongings

Beds, blankets and even toys can build up bad odours. Beds and blanket should be machine washable, but toys will have to be hand-washed in the sink. Make sure to use hot, soapy water, but rinse thoroughly.
