The Dirty Facts

Did you know that dogs can contribute to the accumulation of dirt and dander in your home?

Dogs can also bring in dirt, mud, and outdoor debris, further adding to the mess. Understanding these facts is crucial in maintaining a clean and healthy home.

Keeping a Clean Home with Dogs

Regular Grooming

 Frequent brushing and grooming sessions will help control shedding and minimize the amount of loose hair that ends up on your floors and furniture.

Paw Maintenance

Wiping your dog’s paws after walks or outdoor playtime can prevent dirt and allergens from being tracked inside. 

Vacuuming and Mopping

Regularly vacuuming carpets and wiping floors with pet-friendly cleaners will help eliminate dander, hair, and any potential odors.

Regularly washing dog beds, blankets, and covers can help keep these areas free from dirt, hair, and bacteria.
