肮脏的宠物会使家里臭气熏天, and can create a build-up of germs and bacteria that could lead to trouble. Avoid decreasing your property value from unwanted pet smells and stains by dealing with them promptly if they occur, 或者更好的是, 从一开始就阻止他们.
Ways to keep your house clean with a messy dog begin by preventing the messes in the first place. 方法如下:
在你的储藏室或后门附近, create a space for everything you need for a good dog walk: a leash, 步行鞋, 遛狗后用来擦干狗爪的毛巾, and plastic bags so you don’t leave your dog’s business in your neighbor’s yard. Most dogs use the restroom while on walks, so walk them daily.
再一次, 你的狗在外面待的时间就越多, 他就越有可能在那里做生意, 而不是在室内. 一分预防胜似十分治疗!
大多数狗床上都有可移动的床罩. You can conveniently wash your dog’s bed cover weekly to decrease the germs, odor, and dander.
Clutter makes a home look messy and is known to cause stress in people. Help keep your home clutter free by creating a place for everything—including dog toys. An attractive basket or storage container can easily house your pet’s toys. 它会让你的家看起来很棒, so you’re ready for those drop by guests that may come over unannounced.
5. Strategically place your dog’s bed, food, and 水 remotely.
As convenient as it can be to centrally locate your dog’s food, 水, and bed in the hub of your home—the kitchen—realize that’s probably not the most sanitary location. There are germs usually lurking in a dog’s bed and feeding bowls, so tuck them away in your laundry room or a remote place in your home where you’re not cooking and eating. Along the same lines, wash your dog outside if at all possible. 千万不要在厨房水槽里给他或她洗澡.
狗吃喝的地方可能会很脏乱. Rubber-backed food mats help contain the mess into one area, making it easier to clean.
就像我们努力不让我们的狗靠近沙发一样, 他们设法碰到了它, 或者跳上它(当我们不注意的时候). Purchasing a washable cover will make it easy to strip the couch and sanitize its surface with a good washing.
Professionally groom your dog regularly, and brush him or her daily to decrease shedding. 如果你不喜欢处理脱落, research the types of dogs that don’t shed before buying your next dog (even though these dogs still need to be groomed). Trim their nails to cut down on the scratching or damage they may do to your doors, 门框, 或家具.
在漫长的一天工作后, there’s nothing more frustrating than to come home to a house riddled with dog messes. Avoid the hassle of unwanted dog messes by fencing him or her into a space in your home that is “dog proof” so he can’t get to your favorite chair while you are out.
Stain-resistant fabrics are easy to clean and stay looking fresh. 当你的地板坚固耐用时, 就像今天流行的乙烯基地板, it saves you the hassle of cleaning carpets after pets soil them. Consider durable indoor/outdoor rugs in your home for easy cleaning or replacement as needed. Loving your family and pets is far more important than being stressed over shedding or accidents. So, anticipate the need for clean ups by investing in durable materials in your home.
If your dog is making messes in your home, here are some solutions:
Get a well-equipped vacuum cleaner to combat unwanted dog hair in your home. Your vacuum cleaner should work well on all the surfaces of your home. It shouldn’t easily clog, and should have a filter you can empty easily. 它应该有很好的装饰工具, and the necessary equipment to get to tough to reach spaces.
- 迅速彻底清洁尿液，将损害降到最低, 消除不良气味, and keep your dog from using the restroom again in the same location.
- Blot all the urine up before applying the product of your choice to treat the area. To create an effective product yourself to use on dog urine in the home, grab a spray bottle and mix 1 cup of white vinegar with 1 cup of 水, 还有2茶匙小苏打. Spray the mixture on the affected area, and let it sit for 10 minutes, then wipe it completely.
- Be sure to choose cleaning products that are safe for your family and pets. Read labels carefully and avoid strong products such as bleach. Try to find or make environmentally friendly pet cleaning products for your good health and the health of your pet.
