They’re adorable, they’re loving, and they help us live longer, happier lives. But boy, are they messy!! Their hair gets everywhere, they spread dander, and they track ticks and mites into our homes from the great outdoors. And let’s not mention the dreaded “accidents.”

I’m talking about our cats and dogs, of course.

It is possible to have the best of both worlds – the joy of  having pets and a clean, nice smelling home.

Here are some quick cleaning tips for you if Fido or Mr. Fluffy is “like one of the family.”

Keep your Pets Groomed

The best way to not have shed hair all over the place is to prevent it from happening. Regular baths and brushing will do the trick.

Prevent Repeat Pet “Accidents”

When your dog or cat has an “accident” they mark the spot as a safe place to “do their business.” What this means for you is that as long as their sensitive noses can pick up a whiff of a scent, they will return to the area again and again. To prevent repeat accidents, have the area deeply cleaned as soon as possible.

Don’t Let It Accumulate

Do not let dirt and dander pile up. If you have cats, clean the litter box frequently. You can go low tech (and low cost) by using a bag as a liner so that the “mess” does not leave a lingering smell, or purchase one of the higher end litter box systems.

Hire the Experts

An investment in a professional cleaning service is worth it if you do not have the time to clean. As one of our clients says:

Client Feedback: Best Cleaning in 15 Years

I needed above and beyond the average type of cleaning. Sponge and Sparkle came through beautifully. They cleaned everything everywhere! I have 3 kids, 2 large dogs, and a long haired cat. It was not an easy job! For me it was the best cleaning job I have ever had and I have used housekeepers for 15 years! I am going to continue to use them as my house remains on the market. They’re an asset now I would never let them go! I would recommend them to anyone!…

Friendly to People and Cats

Wonderful Staff – They have done a great job every time. We have had multiple different people clean our house and they all are so friendly to us and our cats! I would highly recommend them.
