Top Spring Cleaning Tips for Pet Owners
Millions of pet owners have searched "How do you deep clean a house with pets?" and "How can I keep my floors clean with my dog?" Keeping your house clean with dogs and cats roaming around is a common challenge - you aren't alone! Lucky for you though, we have the top cleaning tips for pet owners on how to get your house and pets ready for Spring.
Protect Against Springtime Pet Hazards
As you start with Spring yard cleaning, beware that not all pesticides are pet friendly. Some can be lethal or cause health problems for animals. The same is true with fertilizer being used for greener grass or gardens. While a lush garden is lovely, Pet Well Being shares that 700 different varieties of plants and flowers are poisonous to dogs and cats, including Lilies, Tulips, Daffodils and Morning Glory’s.
With the help of Outdoor Shields® Plus Solution, you can keep your pet out of anything harmful to themselves in your garden and plant areas.
Stop Your Dog from Bringing in Dirt
In addition to protecting your pet from Spring hazards, you can also use Outdoor Shields to protect your home from dogs tracking mud in your house. Our outdoor avoidance solutions can help you do some "dog-scaping" and make your backyard more dog-friendly. By creating boundaries around your flowerbeds, we can help stop dog's paws from being muddy, which will help you keep your floors clean.
Remove Dog and Cat Hair from Your House
Cleaning up after pets is a lot of work, especially if you have a dog or cat that sheds. But with our Shields® Indoor Solutions, your pet can maintain their independence while keeping areas of your house clean and hair-free. Help your Spring cleaning efforts to last a little longer by keeping dog hair off your couches and cats prints off your counter.
Get Your Dog's Collar to Stop Smelling
The saying goes "out with the old and in with the new", and your pet’s collar is no exception. Dirt and grime can easily latch onto the material of a pet collar and leash, causing them to be unsanitary and carry an odor at times. Swap out your pet’s collar with one of our Reflex Replacement Collars, designed to fit Invisible Fence® Brand’s Computer Collar® Receiver.
You can spot clean your collar throughout the year by adding a few squirts of dog shampoo to a bowl filled with warm water. Soak the collar and/or leash for 15 minutes, then rub it against itself to get rid of ground-in dirt. Avoid using brushes since they might harm the material. Rinse and hang to dry.
These are only a few ways to clean a house with dogs and cats. Invisible Fence offers multiple products for pet maintenance, and we would be happy to create a custom solution to keep your house clean from pets year-round. Schedule your free in-home consultation today to learn more!
