  • When keeping a house clean with pets, everyone has their own preferences for scooping up hair: Swiffers, hand-held vacuums, dustpans. But you can minimize how much cleaning up you have to do if you start with proper grooming. “Brushing your dog or cat regularly will decrease the amount of hair in the air and on the floor,” says Nancy Katz, DVM, a veterinarian in Montclair, N.J. “Ideally, you should brush your pet a few times a week, just a quick brushing to get the coat out. If you collect it on the brush, it’s not on the floor.” – Pets and a Clean House: Can They Coexist?
  • Pet Hair on Clothing and Upholstery – For clothing, your best bet is to use a tape roller. Loop a ribbon through the handleand hang one from the doorknob inside closets throughout the house so they’re always available to use. For furniture, use the vacuum’s upholstery tool or a hand vacuum with a motorized beater-bar attachment. Lint brushes designed for clothing and dry sponges (sold at pet-supply stores) also work well. –  Clean-House Tips for Pet Owner

    CLEAN UP A MESS AS SOON AS IT OCCURS – One problem that you’re likely to encounter if your cat has yet to be spayed or neutered, is the smell of urine beyond the litter box as your cat sprays furniture, curtains and walls to mark their territory. As soon as you are made aware of this problem, clean it up and take your cat to the vet (to be spayed or neutered – unless you’re planning for kittens). – 8 WAYS TO KEEP A CLEAN HOUSE WITH A CAT

  • Protect rugs with old towels on rainy days. When the weather is bad, I cover the few rugs we have with old towels. This works for a while, until Eden decides that the rugs are playthings set out just for her pleasure and enjoyment. – Keeping your house clean with two big dogs
  • Purchase furniture that is tightly woven and/or has a smooth surface, like leather. Furniture of this sort will not only make it easier to clean pet hair, but will also mitigate damage against claws and scratching. With smooth surface furniture, you can simply squeegee the hair fibers right off. – How to Clean a House with Pets
  • My dogs will chew grass on occasion only to come inside and aim their vomit on a rug, ignoring all the hardwood floors and tile that surround them. Or they get a nick on their skin and before we realize it, there is a trail of blood throughout the house and on the floors, rugs, carpet and bedding.

    First, maybe you smell it, but can’t figure out where your pet had their accident or decided to mark. Black lights have more of a purpose now than just for a 70’s theme party. A black light will spot the “glow” of urine allowing you the first stop toward clean up. – Grandma Knew Best, Cleaning a Pet Friendly House
