We often consider pets another member of our family. Having a pet at home provides another layer of comfort and fun. We give them the same love and care that we would our children.
However, just like our children, pets tend to leave a chaotic mess wherever they go.Thanks to technology, there are many different ways to keep a tidy home with a pet.
From smart home technology to simple storage tricks, here are some ways you can master the art of keeping your home tidy with a pet.
Pet Storage Section
Many of us learned that the art of tidying up really starts with finding a place for everything. Storage spaces for pet supplies can keep their clutter out of the way and helps make sure you are able to find what you need quickly. Giving them their own space keeps their things separated from any grooming, cleaning, and other supplies your family uses for themselves.
It’s best to keep their supplies in one area. Think about your pet’s everyday routine. If they tend to come in and out of the house often, you may want to keep their wipes, grooming supplies, and toys somewhere close by your home’s entryway.
Keeping their storage section close to the door can make it easier for you to catch them for a quick grooming session before they fully enter your home.
Wall Mounts for Leashes
If you have multiple dogs, or have one of those adorable cats that likes walks on a leash, you know by now that leashes tend to easily get tangled and knotted. Keeping leashes organized is a constant headache for pet owners.
Instead of throwing them into a box or drawer where they are more likely to get tangled up, use a wall mount to hang leashes individually. Put this wall mount in the same storage area for your other pet supplies, so you always know where to find it. Hanging them individually will always prevent them from tangling and knotting.
Robot vacuums are a near necessity for all pet owners and is essential to keep your home tidy with pets. Even if your pet is “non-shedding”, pets tend to create dirt and debris from coming in from the outdoors, from their food, and from some minimal shedding. A robot vacuum can cut the constant vacuuming from your day.
There are vacuums that can be scheduled for a set time to clean. This makes it easy for you to keep your floors and carpets clean even when you are at work.
Having a pet at home can often cause allergies because of the dirt and dander that accumulates from them. A robot vacuum can help keep your home tidy but also clean and free from allergens.
Automatic Food Dispensers
Feeding pets can be a messy business. Normal food plates don’t prevent pets from scattering their food while they eat, and leaving their food out can attract bugs and mice. Automatic food dispensers are a great way to control your pet’s food intake and mess.
Not only do they keep your home tidy, automatic food dispensers carefully measure the amount of food your pet needs. You can even program some to dispense a certain amount at a certain time, so you do not have to leave a pile of food out all day. This is a gadget that keeps your pet healthy and keeps your home tidy.
Self-Cleaning Litter Box
Cleaning a litter box for cat owners is a messy task and is often a big factor in keeping a tidy home. Most cat owners might try to keep the litter box in a place that is secluded such as the bathroom or a closet. However, cats can drag litter from the box and into the house. The smell from a litter box, if not cleaned regularly, can end up spreading throughout your home.
A self-cleaning litter box is a simple solution to this big problem. These litter boxes detect when your pet has used the litter box and automatically rakes the waste into a waste container. Instead of constantly scooping your pet’s waste, all you have to do is check the waste container usually about every month.
Having a tidy home with a pet is all about setting up preventative measures that work around your pet’s habits. Keeping your home tidy with a pet does not have to be a constant chore. These tools can keep your home tidy and keep your pet happy.
