Fly­ing Fur

Pet hair is a big chal­lenge for cat and dog own­ers. Place a towel or throw in their favourite spot to help keep the prob­lem con­tained, and shake it out or pop it in the wash. Use lint rollers to re­move sur­face hair from fur­ni­ture be­fore vac­u­um­ing for a deeper clean. For hard floors, use an elec­tro­static mop rather than a vacuum. Finally, groom your pet on a reg­u­lar ba­sis, brush­ing them out­side if pos­si­ble.

MUCKY PUPS

Paw prints are a com­mon sight for most pet own­ers, but by fol­low­ing a few sim­ple steps you can keep your floors tidy. leave a towel or a pack of paw wipes by your front door to clean mucky paws after a walk. Pop your an­i­mal’s food and water bowls on a mat so it’s easy to clear up any spillages, and in­vest in a good qual­ity fresh­en­ing spray to elim­i­nate any strong odours, par­tic­u­larly in their bed or bas­ket.

SAFETY FIRST

Keep med­i­ca­tion and clean­ing prod­ucts away from pets in a cup­board, and al­ways close the toi­let lid when you’ve been clean­ing it with chem­i­cals. Hide cords and wires be­hind fur­ni­ture or un­der rugs, or buy strong cord cov­ers so they can­not be chewed through. a lot of house­plants can also be dan­ger­ous for an­i­mals, so en­sure they are out of reach and don’t let pets drink out of the plant’s saucer.
