Many people who live in a house with a new pet have to learn how to keep their house clean. In this post, we are going to discuss some tips on how to properly care for your home so that you can keep your pet healthy and happy. Pet owners can struggle with pet messes daily. However, it is essential to keep the house clean for both the pet and for the ownerโ€™s sake. There are a few simple ways that can make cleaning up after your pet much easier. The following post is about tips and tricks for maintaining the house clean with a new pet.ย 

Not all pets are created equal. Some shed more than others, some produce more hairballs, some smell worse than others. For us, shedding is an enormous concern since we have THREE dogs. And theyโ€™re all hairy.ย 

We recently adopted a German Shepherd mix and already own two Chow mixes. Together, itโ€™s a collection of dust and dog hair that needs daily attention. Dogs can be messy and we all know that. They shed, they drool, and they sometimes pee on the floor. So how do you handle a dog who doesn’t clean up after themselves? Well, the best way to deal with this is to plan.

How to Clean Your House With Dogs

Purchase some pet-friendly cleaning products. This will help make the job easier and will also not pose any harm to Fido’s little nose or stomach. These products are also available at most stores โ€” so you don’t have to go out of your way just for your pup!

It is important to remember that when you are cleaning up after Fido; it is best not to use harsh chemicals or cleaners that might harm him and his furry friends (and itโ€™s always good for your own health too.

One big tip that is helping us is by paying attention to floors and carpets. Pets can track in dirt from outside or leave stains on your carpeting from their fur or food – so it’s important to vacuum carpets regularly but also use a carpet cleaner for heavy stains that are difficult to remove.

Vacuum the area where the pet sleeps, eats, and plays. Pets shed, so make sure that you vacuum regularly in those spots too. Shedding can happen anywhere in your home but will be more noticeable on carpets and upholstery. A general rule of thumb is to vacuum every two days with a pet in your home. You should also remember to brush or comb your pets regularly, as this will reduce shedding by removing loose fur from their coats before it falls onto your flooring, furniture, clothes, and bedding.

To save time on cleaning, invest in a โ€‹โ€‹Neato D8 Intelligent Robot Vacuum. Because thereโ€™s a big brush and dirt bin, you can clean faster across surfaces like hardwood, carpet, or tile. The .7 dirt bin can hold dust and pet hair to keep it moving and suck up everything in its way. It can clean up to 750 square feet on a single charge which is PERFECT for our home. We can get the dining room and living room squared away daily with a nightly charge. It has a 100-minute runtime with an auto-recharge function too. The best part is it sucks up 99% of allergens too to help the air quality in your home too. 

If youโ€™re tech-savvy, you can use the MyNeato app to schedule cleanings with routines and set up โ€œNo-Go Zonesโ€ so that you can keep it away from other areas in your home (for example, where my dogs are hiding while the robot does its thing). Have extra messy space? Try turbo mode. It will increase the suction to get down deep into your floors. 

Cleaning Tips For Dog Owners

Keep the area around their food and water bowls dry to avoid food and water spilling all over your floor. If you have hardwood floors, this can be difficult so consider using a rubber mat or newspaper under the bowl to catch any leaks or spills. Itโ€™s also helpful to keep one designated place in our home where your pet eats, drinks, and sleeps to avoid food or hair getting scattered throughout your home.

Consider keeping a small trashcan near their feeding station for easy disposal of items like bones.
