Spring is here, and it's time to give your home a deep clean after a long winter. While you're scrubbing and decluttering, don't forget about your furry friends. With a few simple steps, you can make sure your spring cleaning is pet-friendly and won't harm your pets. Here are some tips for a pet-friendly spring cleaning.
1. Use pet-friendly cleaning products
Many cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to pets. Instead, opt for pet-friendly cleaning products such as Lennyshield and Dog Off Laundry Detergent from Lakeside Products. Our cleaning products are made with the safety of your pets in mind and formulated to combat the negative ions found in ammonia.
2. Keep your pets away from cleaning areas
While you're cleaning, it's best to keep your pets in a separate room or outside. This will prevent them from accidentally ingesting or coming into contact with cleaning products. Make sure to close the door or use a pet gate to keep them away from the cleaning area.
3. Check your cleaning supplies for hazards
Before you start cleaning, make sure to check your cleaning supplies for any potential hazards. Keep bleach, ammonia, and other harmful chemicals out of reach of your pets. You should also dispose of any cleaning supplies that are expired or no longer needed.
4. Vacuum and dust regularly
Pets can shed a lot of fur and dander, which can accumulate on carpets and furniture. Regular vacuuming and dusting will help keep your home clean and reduce allergens. Make sure to use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to trap pet hair and dander.
5. Wash pet bedding and toys
Your pets' bedding and toys can harbor dirt, bacteria, and allergens. Make sure to wash their bedding and toys regularly to keep them clean and fresh. Again, try using our pet-friendly Dog-Off laundry detergent to kill bacteria and parasites.
6. Declutter safely
Spring cleaning often involves decluttering and getting rid of items you no longer need. Make sure to dispose of any hazardous items such as old batteries, sharp objects, and toxic chemicals. You should also keep any small items out of reach of your pets, as they can be a choking hazard.
In conclusion, spring cleaning can be a great way to refresh your home and get ready for the warmer months. With these pet friendly tips from your friends at Lakeside Products, you can make sure your cleaning is safe for your pets and won't harm their health. Happy spring cleaning!
