A recent survey directed by Harris Poll on behalf of SunTrust Mortgage discovered that 33 percent of millennials base their home-buying decision not on their spouse or their children, but their pets. Forget the high-rise apartment with a view, today’s home buyers want a spacious yard for Fido to play freely. If you’re a member of this new generation of homebuyers, discover how you can keep your dream home a tidy place to live for family and furry friends alike!
Establish a Designated Storage Area
The key to cleanliness is efficient storage. Your plastic bag collection continues to grow and your pooch is bound to have his fair share of toys. In order to maintain an orderly household, you must first start by establishing a designated storage area. Whether you keep Fido’s accessories in the kitchen or in the laundry room, ensure that you store all items in bins or other containers.
Wash Fido’s Toys
Your furry friend might love his toys, but they’re full of bacteria. You can wash plastic toys and chew toys by hand or simply run them through the dishwasher. Any plush toys, such as stuffed animals, should be cleaned in the washing machine on the hottest setting.
Another Use for a Squeegee
Did you know that your squeegee has more than one use? Fido’s beautiful coat has a tendency of ending up in your beautiful carpet, and your squeegee can help get it out easily. Simply drag your rubber squeegee across the carpet to fix the problem.
Decrease Loose Litter
If your kitten is the source of uncleanliness, consider addressing the litter box. Whenever she used the box, she tracks a small amount of litter through the floors. This can add up quickly, which means you need to find ways to stop litter in its tracks. Consider purchasing a litter mat, or make your own using doormat.
