Maintaining a clean home with pets

Let’s be honest: when it comes to adding a fur baby to your home, the focus is usually on how cute they will be rather than the mess they’ll inevitably bring. I don’t know much about cats but I can tell you this about dogs: short or long hair, the shedding is problematic.

When we adopted our brindle baby from the shelter in February 2019, happy brindle short haired dog I thought because she was a short hair dog that there would be less shedding and hair clean up. Two years and hours of vacuuming later, I can say with certainty that was a lie! It turns out that even short hair does shed a lot especially during season are changes.  

In addition to the shedding hair,  there are the odors… oh the odors! If the breath isn't kicking, then their skin is funky because of either the food they are eating or just perspiration.

When unchecked, all of these things combined will get your island aunty telling you "yuh house smell like dog!" with the screw face.  Well it doesn't have to be that way!  If we stay diligent in how we care for our pets as well as our homes we'll smell a drastic difference.

Here are my top tips for maintaining a fresh and clean home with pets.

  1. Keep up with your pet’s basic hygiene and oral care. There are a plethora of dental treats, sprays, water additives and more out there to keep your dogs’ breathe smelling fresh. Did you know the smell of oh-so-foul drool stays behind since it can permeate rugs, sofas, and beds? To keep your pet’s fur fresh between baths you can use dry shampoos, powders, and doggy wipes.
  2. Refreshing rugs, carpets, and surfaces that aren't machine washable with baking soda. Sprinkle baking soda on dry

    surfaces and allow it to sit for at least an hour, or overnight if you can. After letting it sit just vacuum and voila. What's important to note here is that you don’t just mask the scent but you truly get rid of the odor.
  3. Wash pet beds frequently. Pets scratch, drool, sweat, and maybe even eat on these beds. Of course, odors will accumulate over time. Try to buy washable beds or at least removable covers and clean them periodically.
  4. Keep hardwood floors clean. When cleaning hardwood floors or tiles etc the first step is to remove hair first. I personally love Swiffers. My mom introduced Swiffers to our household routine when I was a teenager and as an adult, I am still hooked. It’s the best option for removing hair and dust without stirring it up like a broom, especially if you have allergies. The next step is to mop the surfaces. I recommend using a simple Green or Mrs. Myers. They are both green products that leave your space smelling so fresh and so clean, clean!
  5. Set the vibe. After you have done the fundamental cleaning this is where you can have some fun and set a vibe. I usually take an extra step and spray my Elan by Uri Linen Spray on rugs and run the vacuum over it one more time. It helps deodorizes the carpet then leaves a nice odor in the air. Don't rely on them to cover up smells but rather to further uplift a space that has been cleaned. I keep a pretty healthy collection of linen sprays, incense, plug-ins, candles, and scented dried leaves.
