Tips for a Clean and Fresh Home with a Pet

  • 1 min read

Owning a pet brings immense joy, but it also comes with the responsibility of maintaining a clean and fresh living space. With the right tools and techniques, you can enjoy a happy life with your furry friend while keeping your home pristine.  

 

Tips for a Cleaner Home With Pets  

  • Regular Grooming: A grooming routine for your pet can significantly reduce the shedding of pet hair.  
  • Frequent Cleaning: Vacuum high-traffic areas and your pet's favorite spots regularly.  
  • Wash Pet Bedding: Use pet hair dryer sheets when washing your pet's bedding to repel hair or opt for pet hair-resistant bedding.  
  • Stain and Odor Removal: Utilize pet-friendly cleaners for accidents and spills. 

Pet-Friendly Cleaning Solutions and Tools  

Traditional solutions for pet odors and hair, like pet- friendly air fresheners and carpet rakes, have their limits. Air fresheners temporarily cover up smells, but don't solve the underlying problem, so some scents may linger.  

Carpet rakes for pet hair can superficially remove pet hair from carpets, but they may not eliminate embedded fur or dander completely. This can result in buildup that impacts air quality and cleanliness.  

Air purifiers can help to deal with pet smells and allergens, improving the air quality in your home. This creates a more comfortable atmosphere for you and your family, unlike air fresheners that simply mask odors. Consider Levoit’s air purifiers to help combat pet-related issues like fur or pet dander and improve your indoor air quality.

Best Air Purifier for Homes With Pets 

When it comes to keeping your home fresh, the Levoit Vital 200S Smart Air Purifier is the way to go. Equipped with a U-shaped air inlet, this air purifier easily traps airborne pet fur while avoiding clogs. Contaminants that fly off your pet’s fur during playtime, such as pet dander, pollen, and dust, are sucked into the air purifier’s 3-stage filtration system and trapped. This system also helps neutralize pet-related odors from litter boxes and accidents.  

And with smart control, you can check your home’s real-time air quality and adjust the fan speed to keep home fresh for your pet even when you’re not home.  

 

 

Choosing Pet-Friendly Furniture and Accessories  

When furnishing your home, opt for pet-friendly rugs and furniture. Consider materials and designs that are made to resist pet hair and stains. Durable upholstery is made with strong, stain-resistant materials such as solution-dyed acrylics or blended polyester. Rugs made from wool, nylon, or polypropylene will last long beneath heavy play and foot traffic. Not only are these materials durable, but they’re easy to clean as well. 

If you have a cat that likes to sharpen its claws on your furniture, consider purchasing a scratching post. You can find these as standalone pillars or as corner pieces for your couch—this is particularly handy if your feline has already appointed a specific corner for scratching. 

If you have a dog, wiping off their paws before they return from outside play will help minimize the amount of pollen and dirt they track inside. It’s an extra step, but worth it if you want to boost your home’s cleanliness!
