How to Have Dogs AND A Clean House This Summer
Although we love our furry friends, having pets can make it hard to keep your home fresh and clean, especially during the summer season. With summer being full of outdoor activities, our homes can quickly become filled with dirt, pet dander, mud, water, pollen, grass, and so much more. Follow these tips and tricks to learn how to have dogs and a clean house this summer so you can enjoy the season without the stress!
Watch the Weather
One tip for how to have dogs and a clean house this summer is to watch the weather! Schedule outdoor activities when the weather is more dry and less humid to keep you and your pets healthy while also reducing the amount of muddy feet and paws.
If you do go out when it is muddy outdoors, prepare ahead of time! Set aside extra towels by door mats to keep your pet’s paws clean, remove your shoes before right when you get in the door, and always have extra cleaning supplies on hand for quick cleaning of small messes.
Groom & Bathe Pets Regularly
During the summer months, your pets may be shedding more fur than usual to stay cool and comfortable. Also, all the outdoor activities can make your pets’ fur get dirtier quicker. Groom and bathe your pets regularly to work towards keeping your home clean throughout your fun filled summer.
Frequent Vacuuming & Dusting
Homes can quickly collect pet dander and fur. This can not only impact some people’s allergies, but also can make your home dirtier. To fight the fur, frequent vacuuming and dusting are great tricks to keep your home feeling fresh! Dust regularly to aid in reducing pet dander in your home. Once a week, wipe down all surfaces of your home to keep it feeling fresh all summer long. Or, designate specific rooms to clean on each day of the week so you don’t have to do it all at once.
Investing in a robotic vacuum cleaner is a great way to get rid of the fur efficiently and regularly. Using a robotic vacuum cleaner is as easy as the push of a button! Simply turn it on once a day or every other day, and watch the fur magically disappear!
Air Purification Systems are also a great step in the right direction to having dogs and a clean house this summer. Not only do air purification systems help reduce air contaminants in your home, but they also help reduce pet dander in your home. Cleaning the air in your home will help you, your family, and your furry friends breathe easier all summer long.
