Taking care of your pet can be a time-consuming process. Dogs like to track in dirt, cats scratch up your furniture and goldfish… well, goldfish isn’t too messy. If you have a dog, cat, bird, bunny, rodent, or any other pet besides a goldfish, then I am sure you know how messy pets can be. Cleaning up after our pets can be annoying, but there are some simple tips that can help you make the process a little easier.
Here are six tips that will help you clean up after your pet in the most efficient way.
If you have a dog, I am sure you love them. Maybe you don’t love them as much when they track dirt from outside into your home, but I’m sure you still love them deep down. Dogs tend to bring in lots of mud and dirt from the outdoors after they are finished playing. Cleaning up after your dog can be a hassle because as you are trying to chase your dog around the house, the dog is tracking more dirt everywhere. One tip for cleaning up after your pooch is to invest in a Swiffer mop and duster. This product will allow you to clean up after your dog effortlessly, and you will no longer have to stress about getting down on your hands and knees to scrub your floors after your dog has made a mess.
2. Pooper scooper
Use a pooper scooper when you are picking up after your pet. When you take your dog for a walk in the park or down the sidewalk, you should always carry some bags and a pooper scooper to clean up after your dog has taken a dump on the sidewalk. If you have never picked up dog poop before, you may not know where to begin.
3. Robot vacuum
If your pet has long hair and tends to leave hair all over the place, you should consider getting a robot vacuum to help clean up their mess. There are many different robot vacuums on the market, and they all generally do the same thing. I personally have a Roomba, which is a robotic vacuum that does a pretty good job of cleaning up pet hairs that are deeply embedded within carpet fibers. All I have to do is charge my Roomba and then set it up in the room. I would like to clean and press start.
By the time the Roomba is done cleaning the room, it had collected a bunch of dog hair that I didn’t even know what they’re. If you need help setting up your Roomba, you should refer to this guide as it covers all the things you need to know. Robotic vacuums work great at cleaning up messes on the carpet, and it is also fun to watch your pet freak out over the robotic vacuum. Just make sure your dog does not destroy your robotic vacuum. Otherwise, you will have an even bigger mess to clean up.
4. Replace kitty litter
It is important to replace your cat kitty litter because if they kitty litter gets too full, your cat may start doing their business elsewhere and trust me. You do not want that to happen. Cat pee in carpet is one of the worst smells in the world, and it is not something that you want to deal with. You may be surprised, but cats are very clean animals, and they care about cleanliness. If a kitty tray is too dirty, then your kitty will find a cleaner place to go do their business, and more often than not, that clean place to be on your carpet. By replacing the kitty litter often, you will ensure your kitty always feels. For more info related to kitty litters, visit ExcitedCats.com.
Pets are adorable creatures that are fun to play with, but sometimes you need to take the time to clean up after your pet. Make sure you use a pooper scooper and carry little garbage bags when you take your dog out for a walk in public. No one wants to step in dog poop on their way to work. If your pet is the type to make a mess at home, then you should consider using the robot vacuum option as it is a quick and easy way to clean up dog hair out of carpets. If you have a cat, you should remember that cats like to keep things clean just like you, that’s why it is important to frequently change their litter box so that they do not find a clean spot somewhere else in your house to do their business.
