It’s officially the first week of spring! In spite of the late cold snap, I’ve been enjoying throwing open the windows and getting more fresh air and sunlight into our house.
However, with more sunlight and fresh air comes the realization: everything we own is currently buried under a nice layer of dust and animal hair. The hairballs in the corner might be gearing up to claim the guest bedroom once and for all. Combine this with the unreal levels of pollen beginning their usual spring build up and it’s a miracle my allergies haven’t permanently swollen my eyes shut.
Time for a little spring cleaning? Sounds about right.
Spring cleaning is always a little different when you have pets. Even with a daily or weekly cleaning schedule, the dirt, dander, and fur from our animals builds up over time, creating smells and films that are less than pleasant in the bright springtime light of day.
We’ve compiled a list of cleaning problems unique to pet owners, and we’re giving you 13 cleaning tips for dog owners to tackle each one and leave your home looking and smelling amazing.
