Can You Maintain A Spic And Span House With a Dog?

Nothing says “home” quite like having a furry friend greet you at the door each and every time you come home from work or school, but is it sanitary to own a pet? Does anyone really think pet owners across the globe are going to get rid of their cats or dogs over a little pet fur lying around? Probably not, but it is important to recognize when your pet is just leaving around a normal amount of mess, and when it’s time to do a cleaning overhaul and keep your family healthy.

The biggest challenge when living with pets is usually pet dander or fur left all over the house. You don’t even realize how much is really around the house and even your car until you give it a once over inspection. You could never take your dog in your car or truck for any reason and still end up with an obscene amount of pet fur in your vehicle just from what you bring in on your clothes and footwear. It’s usually all over your outfit by the time you arrive at work, and you’re likely all too familiar with storing a lint roller in your desk.

Maybe your dog has chewed up your furniture, or had one too many accidents on your bedroom carpeting. While these situations are bound to occur with pets, leaving certain issues about your home can lead to an unsanitary living environment. Cat and dog urine for instance have a very high amount of ammonia, and leaving it, or not cleaning it properly can lead to quite the gross mess according to experts at Canine Journal.

Cleaning up accident immediately after they happen is a good start to keeping your home spic and span. Getting a solid vacuum cleaner to get even the biggest pet fur puffs out of each corner of the house is also an excellent tip. Keep pets off of cooking surfaces, such as kitchen counters and tables to avoid spreading around whatever they may have on their paws, or trapped inside their fur. Keep them clean by giving them regular baths, and brushing them frequently to give your house the best shot at staying clean and germ free.
