How to Keep Your House Clean With Pets
Grace Olivia Parry
Have you ever thought twice about getting a pet due to the dirt-induced dread that can come along with it? We hear you. But the key to finding a happy medium with your adoration of fluffy friends and houseproud nature is knowing how to keep your house clean with pets.
And while that might seem like the age-old question you’re unsure can even be answered, you’ll be thoroughly surprised to learn that it doesn’t have to be a life of fur balls, dander and water stains for you.
If you’re dying to know how to deep clean your house with pets (and, in fact, if you even have to!), along with how an air purifier can be the secret to making a pet-paired life cleaner, Coway has you covered.
The Perfect Preventative Measures
So before we dive into the dirty dealings, let’s talk shop. If you truly want to keep your home clean when you have a puppy, cat or any other indoor pet, preventative measures are key.
Enter the air purifier. Also known as the underrated savior for satisfying interiors. If you truly want to keep pet dander at bay, a True HEPA filter is your new best friend. By cleaning the air and filtering particles smaller than skin cells, life is automatically easier. Those dreaded deep cleans are needed less and less (oh yes!).
And while we’re at it, let’s talk water stains. Even the cutest pet bowls can cause chaos in the kitchen. It only takes a messy drinking dog or excitable kitten to see that water stains aren’t a great look. But with a water purifier, the dual sediment and carbon block filter help to reduce the severity of lasting marks.
How Else to Keep Your House Clean
With your pair of purifiers at the ready (and two chic new additions to your interiors, might we add), what more can you do to keep your house clean with pets? You’ll be pleased to know that it might not take an army, but just a good old-fashioned cleaning schedule instead.
Start with a pet-hair strength vacuum cleaner that’ll clear up dander on a daily (or weekly, who are we to judge?) basis. Be sure to wash your fabrics–think cushions, throws, and linens–regularly, along with pet beds and blankets to minimize fluff clouds on your furniture.
If you just so happen to be renovating (or don’t mind redoing it for a good cause), opt for darker colors. These are less likely to show fur, dander, and other pet particles that drive you crazy.
And above all else, make pet cleaning a priority. While it’s essential to use shampoo sparingly, a thorough hose-down will work wonders for pet mess in the home. Wiping paws, and trimming or brushing fur can also help. A dog wash station could be just what you need to stop muddy paws from mucking up your perfect interiors.
Healthy Home, Healthy Pets
As much as it may seem like you want the home hacks for a pristine living space, a healthier home leads to healthier pets (and humans!) too. Think about it. Less mess for them means they’re kept clean, along with the air they breathe and water they drink.
So along with a slightly stricter cleaning regime, pick your perfect purifying pair and rest assured that your home is healthier than ever. For water, will you go for the sleek Aquamega 100 or the advanced Aquamega 200C? And for air, will you choose the expansive Airmega 400 or the chic Airmega 250?
