Pets bring us company and joy, but they can also bring us unique presents. Keeping your home clean is one of the biggest challenges when it comes to owning a pet. Removing pet stains is a necessity with a beloved one in your home. If your household is currently in danger of becoming a fur kingdom, Ministry Of Cleaning Melbourne home cleaners has some handy tips for removing pet stains and keeping a clean home.
1. Stop Dirt at the Door
Ungodly amounts of mud and dirt tend to be tracked by dogs, especially when they come in the door after being outside. Rather than spending hours of your time scrubbing dirt from your floors, keep a towel and a container of water by the door. Also, place mats inside and outside of your front door, and train your dog to wait there while having their paws wiped.
2. Use Baking Soda for tough stains
To remove hard stains, put undiluted soda water directly on the stain and then blot the area with a dry towel. Then, place a fresh white towel on the area and place a heavy object over the towel to soak up the remaining moisture. This solution can also be used to clean your pet beds as it is an anti-bacterial agent.
3. Use White Vinegar to Deodorize Your Carpet
It one of the all-around best home remedies for removing pesky smells and stains from your carpet.
Simply fill a spray bottle with water and white vinegar in 60:1 such that there are 60 parts of parts to 1 part of white vinegar. Spray your carpet sparingly with this homemade solution. Then, let the area dry. You’ll be amazed by the vinegar soaking up any lingering smells!
4. Use A Lint Roller (Or Handheld Vacuum)
Lint rollers are a must-get if you’re a pet owner! Lint rollers can pick up hair from virtually any surface. A lint roller is an affordable and quick way to pick up the fur for those spur-of-the-moment cleaning times — such as when you have an unexpected guest dropping by.
Instead of dragging out a more massive vacuum, consider buying a handheld version and ready for general maintenance. They’re easy to use and convenient for cleaning up pet fur on the floor.
