Those with pets often feel that it is impossible to keep their home clean. Dogs and cats bring in dirt and debris from outside and make lovely little messes for you to constantly clean up. Not to mention the little accidents your pets may occasionally have. Where you, as well as many others, may feel like you must give up on maintaining a clean home, AAA Cleanco will share a few tips to help you maintain a clean home regardless of your loving pet’s interference.

How to Keep a House Clean with Cats & Dogs that Shed & Have Accidents

Automatic Vacuum or Smart Vacuums: Dogs and cats are constantly shedding hair just like humans. However when your pets lose their fur, your entire home becomes infested with clumps of hairs. Even the same day after you spent time cleaning and vacuuming your home, new hair is found all over your floor. One answer to this problem is an automatic or smart vacuum cleaner. Often referred to as a robot vacuum cleaner, these little wonders of technology can help maintain clean floors. There are many robot vacuums that are designed for pets. They can hold up to all of the hair and dirt better than other robot vacuums.
Lint Rollers: A lint roller is a great tool for removing pet hair that every pet owner should have. To help for quick hair cleanup, a lint roller does a great job to help pick up and remove pets hair from upholstery, curtains and other fabrics.
Stain Removers: There are times when even the best dog or even cat will have their little accidents inside your home. It is strongly recommended you always keep a stain cleaner on hand to tend to those random accidents your pets may leave behind. When it comes to cleaning any stain on any surface, you want to be able to clean messes as soon as possible. It benefits your home to have access to stain cleaners to ensure you rugs, carpet, upholstery, curtains, and cushions get clean if soiled by your pets.
Mats or Door Rugs: Outdoor mats or rugs can greatly reduce the amount of dirt and debris that comes into your home. For both dog and cats owners, it’s a good idea to have a mat outside the main entrances your pets use. Washable mat are recommended to help clean and remove the dirt it traps with ease. Avoid cloth rugs or mats as they don’t catch as much dirt and are a major pain to clean.
Food Mats: Unfortunately not all pets have the best table manners and can make quite a mess when they are eating or drinking. To help keep the feeding area clean, use a large enough mat to help capture the stray food pieces or water drips from spreading across the floor. Each pet varies in feeding habits. You will need to make the needed adjustments to help contain the mess. Some people will use an old sheet and wash it after each feeding.
Pet Sleeping Areas: Pets often leave a mess around their favorite sleeping areas. You will find clumps of pet hair on their bed or around the areas they like to sleep. Many pet owners will provide a bed for their pets. However, the surrounding area still gets affected. It is recommended to have a cover on their pet bed where it can be removed and taken outside to remove the hair and later washed. The cleaner the pet sleeping area is the cleaner your home.
Bathing Pets: You will find the cleaner your pets are, the cleaner your home will stay. By frequently brushing and bathing your pets, the less hair and dirt they will leave behind. When you keep your pets clean it also helps to maintain not only the hair and dirt, but also prevents fleas or ticks, and dry skin they leave behind. Bathing your pets can help improve your home by staying cleaner and improving the indoor air quality.

Cleaning after your pets can be difficult and time consuming. If you find you need help maintaining a cleaner home, contact AAA Cleanco for residential and commercial cleaning.

There are few that look forward to detailed cleaning tasks every week in their home. Most have busy schedules and when there is time to clean anything more than a quick pickup, few desire to do such chores with the little spare time they have. With this in mind, it is always better to work smarter, not harder so you can enjoy more R&R and less house work. With that in mind, we at AAA Cleanco would like to share some shortcuts to expedite getting the house cleaning done.

Housecleaning Tips & Facts

1) Cleaning Route Planning. For more efficiency, take a few minutes to determine the most optimal course of action to tackle the housekeeping chores. It will save you more time down the road instead of the back and forth.
2) Have Cleaners in Easy to Reach Your Places. Find a place in the bathroom to store the paper towels and cleaning chemicals. Where many of the cleaners are room-specific, where you can store them in that room, it makes them easier and convenient to get to, especially for quick touchups and little spots.
3) Storage Bins for Organization. Minding the clutter is one of the biggest culprits to time consumption. Use bins for the items that are constantly cluttered in piles and left wherever. Stuff likes shoes, hats, backpacks and so on can get tossed in the bins and then the various family members can be summoned to put their items away.
4) Clean a House from Top to Bottom. Use gravity to your advantage and start dusting from the top and work your way down. Instead of vacuuming and then noticing the ceiling fans are dusty only to have to vacuum again, expedite the process by efficiently starting at the top and work to the bottom.
5) Clean Ceiling Fans without Getting Dust Everywhere. Ceiling fans are a magnet for dust and accumulate it very quickly. To better contain the blanket of dust bunnies, use a pillow case to envelop and wipe the blade down before polishing it. The majority of the dust should stay in the pillow case, if not all.
6) Double Duty on Equipment & Appliances. Use the vacuum to do the floors in addition to some dusting with the hose, like the baseboards, inside the cabinets, corners, walls, ceiling, and other such places. The dishwasher can do more than dishes, such as light fixtures, pet dishes, and plastic toys.
7) Soak Stubborn Grease & Grime. Tough jobs can be saved for later. For example, hard water stains are a challenge to tackle, but applying a cleaner, commercial or a DIY solution soaked in a paper towel and placed on the handles, faucet, and where there is a buildup while you are cleaning areas, or overnight, can make the job a lot easier when you return to it.
8) Hire a Cleaning Service. Keeping a clean house clean is always easier. Having a routinely scheduled professional house cleaning service keep the cleaning well maintained can open your schedule and help you maintain the pickup.
