How to Keep the Peace (and the Tidiness) When You Have a Pet

Raising a pet is like raising a baby, except the baby never grows up. Therefore, you’re left to contend with presents like dead mice on your porch and pet hair everywhere, even on your contact lenses (true story!).

It’s always better to call our residential cleaning services when your pet’s latest shenanigans leave an unholy mess. However, here’s what you can do the rest of the time.

Start with Your Pet

There is no such thing as an introverted dog. They have all made peace with going out for the odd pee break and walk. When they get back, things might get gnarly for their parents.

If your dog has rolled through a muddy trail or wet their coats, they’re bound to bring it home. You can keep them confined to one area before they cause too much damage. We’d choose the kitchen or laundry room because they’re made for easy cleaning.

Once there, you should give them a quick rinse with tap water and only use a pet shampoo if they’re due a grooming routine.

Change or Cover Your Couch

The slightest stain or pet hair can show up on a couch with too light or too dark upholstery. It’s even worse for those who own cats and have leather or textured couches. Kitties love fraying at leather, and their claws usually get stuck in a textured upholstery.

Architectural Digest recommends flat fabrics in a neutral color for pet owners looking to replace their couches. You could also match your couch with your pet’s coat to disguise hair and stains.

The paper also recommends placing a scratching post near the couch or, if you can’t bear to scooch them off your couch, placing a clean throw over the upholstery and chucking it in the washer at the end of the day.

Clean Your Pet's Property

There’s no denying that having a pet turns you into a loving parent, and you want to provide them with everything, like a decent bed, several leashes, and toys. Since these things can draw odor and dirt, they can spread throughout your house through your pet.

Therefore, you must clean/wash these items every week. If they aren’t machine washable, you can hand wash them at the sink and leave them out to dry naturally.
