Keep Your House Clean and Your Pets Healthy

Your pet’s health and the cleanliness of your home should be important to you. In the home you want to stay healthy, and a good clean environment goes a long way to protecting the health of you and your family. Did you know that the cleanliness of your home can impact the health of your pet? Here are some things to consider when cleaning your home so it’s safe for your pet.

Remove Hazards to Pets

If your home is dirty, you increase the hazards that your pets come in contact with. Pets are naturally curious and they will sniff and even eat dirt if they find it in the home. They can potentially swallow small objects such as paper clips, bottle caps, papers, and other debris if these are left within your pets reach. It’s important to reduce choking hazards by removing dirt and debris from your home and keeping it clean with a good weekly vacuuming. Pets can leave a lot of mess so it’s critical that you keep things clean so they stay healthy.  You don’t want their curiosity to make them sick.

Food Poisoning and Pets

You may think it’s fine to leave food on the stove and forget about it, but your pet will pay attention to it. If you’re not careful, they may find a way to get to it and eat it, no matter what that food may be. Many foods that we eat everyday are toxic to pets and can make them quite sick. You need to ensure that the kitchen is kept clean and that all food is put away as soon as you’re done with it. Food scraps that end up on the floor as a result of cooking can easily be digested by your pet and may require a trip to the vet. A clean kitchen is an essential step to ensure the safety of your pet.

Hazardous Chemicals

We clean around the house and use all sorts of chemicals. These chemicals make our home smell nice and they clean up spills, but the contents can be deadly to pets too. Once you use these chemicals they should be kept in a safe area where pets can’t reach them. One idea is to have a cupboard where you store your household cleaners that you’re able to lock up so your curious pet can’t get inside and make themselves sick. Your pet could find a way into your cleaners if you don’t secure them properly in the home.

Fleas, Ticks and Other Insects

A dirty home invites insects into it especially fleas and other small insects. The first host they look for is your pet. By keeping your home clean, you reduce the chances that your pet will get sick from insect bites and that they won’t become the host for the eggs of small insects such as fleas. A good bath for your pet will help, but keeping pests out of the home in the first place is essential and a dirt environment just invites them to breed.

Clean Your Home and Keep Your Pet Safe

One of the best things you can do for your pet is to ensure they live in a clean environment. If you value the health and safety of your pet you need to keep the home as clean as possible. It doesn’t take much to ensure that your pet is safe and you owe it to them to make house cleaning a top priority for the safety and well-being of both you and your beloved pet.
