Cleaning a house with pets

We all love our four-legged friends but whether its Charlie the pug or Bella the cat, they can play havoc with our cleaning routine.

One of the biggest problems that comes with owning a pet is the fur which sheds over surfaces and furniture so firstly, make sure your pet is regularly groomed and brushed to minimise the amount of fur they deposit.

Look for a pet-appropriate vacuum cleaner with a strong suction to pick up fur and make sure it is suitable for furniture as well. Day to day, keep your Cloth by SPh2ONGE handy to pick up stray fur. Regardless of how often you clean, it is worth doing a deep clean of your carpets every few months to dig out those deep-rooted fibres.

When it comes to interior furnishings, look for durable fabrics and stain-resistant materials and cover areas where your pet likes to sleep with a sheet or blanket which can be easily removed and thrown into the washing machine.

Clean their toys and beds regularly as these can harbour germs; most toys and fabrics can go in the washing machine but if not, wash by hand in the sink and leave to dry outside to get rid of any excess odours.

Lastly, keep a caddy ready by your door filled with an Cloth by SPh2ONGE, old towel, and water so you can easily clean off your dog before they track mud into your lovely clean floors!

  • Brilliant read! I don’t have any pets, but I’ve recently house sat for a family member with a pug. I cannot believe how much their fur malts!
    No matter how much we where hoovering the floor (wooden), fur would just appear from nowhere!
    I never thought to use my Sph2onge cloth! It’s a definite recommendation that I’m going to suggest to them! Even so they can wipe down their hairy clothes!

  • I love my cloth for pet hair its the best even though i hoover more than once a day theres always some hair its great

  • Since purchasing Sph2onge I couldn’t live without it . I use it for cleaning a range of things around my house .

  • Great Blog and great tips. I have a cat and a dog and find it difficult to keep on top of the fur but I will definitely be taking these handy tips on board and giving them a try. Thank you :)

  • What a great blog post about pet hair. The sph2onge sponge and cloth are excellent for removing and picking up pet hair from carpets, stairs and sofas. They are just so versatile and brilliant for cleaning literally every item and surface in and out of the house, including the car. Keep up the good work 👍
