Tips on Keeping Your House Clean, Especially if You Have Pets.

Keeping your house clean can be a difficult challenge and it is especially hard if you are a pet owner. We all love our pets, but sometimes they can cause us a great deal of stress with the mess they can create.


Luckily, there are  a few tips and tricks you can utilize to help make the clean up process a little easier after your pet has made a mess.

Time for a haircut

Some dogs, like the border collie, can grow really long hair over time. This hair may look great on your dog, but it can also lead to lots of hairs laying around your home. If you are not a fan of finding dog hair in every square inch of your home, then you should consider giving your dog a haircut. Cutting your dog’s hair will result in the dog shedding less around your house, and that means less cleaning up after your pooch and more time playing with them. If you do not have a dog yet but are thinking of getting one, you should consider looking at dog breeds that have shorter hair.

Wipe off the paws

Your dog can track in a lot of dirt and mud into your home after they come in from the outdoors. Letting your dog play outside is healthy for your dog and you should definitely let your dog play outside and get some physical exercise and well deserved playtime, but you should be aware of all the dirt your dog tracks in. One way to keep your home cleaner is by wiping off your dogs paws before letting them back inside the house. This will help remove the dirt and mud and any other debris from your pooch before they bring it inside. This simple yet effective tip can save you hours of cleaning up after your pet.

Robot vacuum


A robot vacuum can help clean up all of the hairs that your dog leaves around the home. If you have a dog with longer hair, and you do not want to give them a haircut, then I would definitely recommend investing in a high quality robotic vacuum, just like a Roomba. A high quality robotic vacuum will make you clean up process much easier. The vacuum will do all the work and you can spend your time doing other things you love. Not only will the vacuum clean up after your dog for you, it will also do a better job than if you were cleaning it yourself!


Those robotic vacuums just seem to clean up dog hair so well. Especially from hairs that get trapped in deep carpet fibers. Experts at Smart Robotic Home suggests that having a Roomba will work wonders for your home because it will not just get rid of all those pesky pet hairs but it will also work great at cleaning up messes on the carpet. One tip, just make sure your dog does not destroy your robotic vacuum, otherwise you will have an even bigger mess to clean up.

Dog bowls

If you are the owner of a big rottweiler or any other dog for that matter, you will know how easy it is for big dogs to make a big mess while eating. One tip to help manage the mess your dog makes while it is eating is to put the dog food bowl in an easy to clean area. I would suggest putting a towel around the feeding area for your pet to ensure that any mess is contained to the towel. You could also place a rubber or cloth mat around the area to stop food from going everywhere over your floor. Using a towel or some kind of mat will also protect your floors from any water that may spill out of your pets drink bowl.

If you want to keep your house clean make sure to follow these tips. Wiping your dog’s paws is an easy way to prevent a big mess from occurring. Also, you should consider investing in a robotic vacuum as it will put cleaning up dog hairs on auto pilot. If your dog is a messy eater make sure you put some form of protection in the pets eating area to prevent a big mess. If you follow these basic tips, cleaning up after your pet will not be such a chore. You will be able to manage the cleanup process and spend more time doing the things that you love. With all that extra time you will be able to spend more of it with your loving pet.
