Having your pet in the house could sometimes prove to be challenging when you consider how much effort you need to put into cleaning. This is not made any easy if you have got a smelly dog on hand. Aside the fur flying around and stains being left on the floor or couch; the reality of the room being filled with stench could leave you with more than what you bargained for.
In the first instance, while it may be easy to keep the flying fur in check by providing one of those cheap dog kennels within the home, getting rid of the stench [emanating from the dog] could be a little difficult. And you need to ensure that you have cleaned up the dog before showing it to its new home (that is, kennel) – there wouldn’t be so much unpleasant smell if the dog had been bathed in the first place.
3 Tips for pet owners who want to keep their home clean
So, I assume you must have bathed your dog – and that you do so regularly; now let’s the other things you need to do to have a clean home.
- Sweeping and Vacuuming: Make sure you sweep hard floors on a daily basis and diligently vacuum the carpets and rugs; touching every inch of them. This act will enable you to get rid of the furs that might have fallen off the dog’s body. Also, see it to that you vacuum every part of the couches – especially the ones where the dog often seek refuge. You can also use spot removal when necessary.
- Clean up the dog’s bedding: It’s no brainer that the dog’s bedding contributes much odor to the home. Hence, it is necessary that you wash the bed regularly and get it air-dried.
- Allow some fresh air in: This is yet the most basic way of ensuring that your home is odor-free. So, open up the windows and maybe your doors on some occasions. You should also consider using air filters.
