Pets bring so much joy and love into our lives, but let's face it – they can also get a fair share of messes. Keeping a clean home with pets can sometimes feel challenging, from muddy pawprints to shedding fur. But fear not! You can maintain a tidy and pet-friendly environment with the right cleaning tips and tricks without compromising safety or effectiveness. In this blog, we'll share some paw-some cleaning tips to help you keep your home clean and your furry friends happy.

1. Use Pet-Safe Cleaning Products:

When cleaning up after your pets, it's essential to use products that are safe for them. Opt for pet-safe cleaning solutions that are free from harsh chemicals and toxins. Look for natural, biodegradable cleaners that are gentle on your pet's skin and respiratory system. You can also make pet-friendly cleaning solutions using vinegar, baking soda, and water.

2. Vacuum Regularly:

Pets, especially those with fur or hair, can leave behind a trail of dander, dirt, and hair wherever they go. To keep your floors and furniture clean, vacuum regularly to remove pet hair and debris. Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to trap allergens and prevent them from circulating in the air. Remember to vacuum under furniture and in hard-to-reach areas where pet hair tends to accumulate.

3. Clean Up Accidents Promptly:

Accidents happen, especially with young or untrained pets. When your pet has an accident indoors, cleaning it up promptly is essential to prevent stains and odors from setting in. Blot up any liquid messes with paper towels or a clean cloth, then clean the area with a pet-safe cleaner. Avoid using ammonia-based cleaners, as they can mimic the urine scent and encourage repeat accidents.

4. Wash Pet Bedding Regularly:

Your pet's bedding can quickly become a breeding ground for dirt, hair, and bacteria. Wash it regularly to keep it clean and fresh, ideally once a week. Use a pet-safe detergent and wash bedding in hot water to kill germs and allergens effectively. Remember to dry bedding thoroughly to prevent mold and mildew growth.

5. Groom Your Pet Regularly:

Regular grooming keeps your pet looking and feeling their best and helps reduce shedding and dander in your home. Brush your pet's fur regularly to remove loose hair and prevent mats from forming. Bathe your pet as needed using a gentle, pet-safe shampoo. Additionally, periodically trim your pet's nails to prevent scratches on floors and furniture.

6. Maintain a Clean Litter Box:

If you have a cat, keeping the litter box clean is essential for both your pet's health and your home's cleanliness. Scoop the litter box daily to remove waste and clumps and replace litter as needed. Wash the litter box with soap and water regularly to prevent odors and bacteria buildup. Consider using a litter mat to trap litter and prevent it from tracking throughout the house.

With these pet-friendly cleaning tips, you can maintain a clean and healthy home for you and your furry friends. By using pet-safe cleaning products, vacuuming regularly, cleaning up accidents promptly, washing pet bedding, grooming your pet, and maintaining a clean litter box, you can enjoy a tidy and pet-friendly environment without sacrificing safety or cleanliness. Here's to a paw-some clean home that both you and your pets will love!

How do I get my free cleaning visits?

ChirpChirp's ChirpPerks is a bonus bonanza for recurring customers that dishes out a whole month's worth of complimentary cleaning sessions sprinkled throughout the year. The more often you have us clean, the more free cleanings come your way.

Here's the scoop:

Go weekly and you are cleaned four times in most months. But when a month stretches to five weeks, that fifth one on us.

Bi-weekly?  Enjoy two sessions per month typically. Sneaky three-week months? No worries, the third one is our treat.

If you are on the schedule every 4 weeks, revel in one pristine performance eleven out of twelve months but the one where there's two cleanings, the second one is complimentary.
