Whether you have a menagerie of animals at home or you only care for one little fluffy Fido, odds are you still need to fight the dirt those fuzzy friends create. Pets can wreak havoc on the cleanliness of a home. At Real World Cleaning Services in Logan, we strive to keep the furry creatures in your home from creating mess distress.
Many times animals can track in dirt, shed hairs and create odor in an otherwise spotless abode. We’ve rounded up five quick and easy ways to mitigate the mess caused by four-legged friends:
1.) Fur Fest
Bissell makes a pet hair eraser and Scotch Brite has a fur fighter hair remover but a good old session with the vacuum cleaner will eliminate many loose hairs. Dampened rubber gloves will also attract hair and can be rinsed off following a pickup session.
2.) Furniture Smells
A wet dog smell is not ideal for your chaise lounge or loveseat sofa. To conquer the stink, try sprinkling baking soda on cushions to create freshness and let it soak in for 15 minutes before vacuuming. Or try a product like Febreeze Pet Odor Eliminator.
3.) Urine Stains
It’s not uncommon for indoor animals to have accidents on the carpet. To clear the stain, mix one cup of water with a 1/8th cup of dish soap and then blot with a clean cloth. After blotting, dab with a little white vinegar and water. Need help cleaning up spots and stains? Our maid service crew in Logan, Ohio is here to help! Contact us for a free quote today!
4.) Freshen Up
Keep puppies smelling fresh and clean with a mixture of one part apple cider vinegar with one part water but be sure to avoid eyes and sensitive regions. A sprinkle of baking soda followed by a good brushing will discharge any lingering odors and ensure a fresh and happy scented pup.
5.) Stop and Paws
Pets love to track in all sorts of outdoor grime and dirt. If your furry friend brings in muck and mud from the outdoors, let it dry and then vacuum the area followed by a spray mixture of white vinegar and water. Blot away any remaining stains.
