Hygiene in the presence of pets: How should it be?

The hygiene in the presence of pets serves to guarantee our own well-being and also that of our furry ones.

Those who live with pets will know well the efforts that must be made on many occasions to keep the spaces clean.
Many complain about the excess hair that their pets give off and that they find, not only on the floor, but also in the furniture.
That is why, thousands of experts share tips to keep the spaces clean in the presence of pets.
However, all of them are shared from the human perspective. That is, to benefit the owners of pets, and very rarely take into account the effects that may have the hygiene methods used in our furry.
In this article we review the necessary guidelines to maintain the hygiene of the spaces in the presence of animals, regardless of whether it is a home or a veterinary clinic, ensuring that cleaning has the least possible impact on animals.

Avoid the most toxic chemicals
Most pets are highly sensitive to cleaning and disinfection products, which can lead to allergies or discomfort in pets.
Therefore, we will try to use ecological cleaning products or whose toxicity is minimal.
In those situations in which it is strictly necessary to use chemicals for disinfection, such as veterinary clinics, we will bet on chlorinated solutions instead of ammonia, which gives off a smell very similar to that of animal urine and May cause counterproductive effects.

Both cleaning and disinfection, in these cases, will always be carried out in the absence of pets.
Baula ecological cleaners are a very good option for cleaning in the presence of pets. Its toxicity levels are minimal and are available in different formats (floors, bathrooms, multipurpose, sanitizer, etc.).
Use wet cloths for generic cleaning
When cleaning the dust it is recommended to dispense with products such as, for example, the duster, which spreads dirt and pet hair throughout the environment.
Instead, we will use cloths or mops impregnated in wet solutions to better trap dust and avoid lifting it.
The BIO System mop is a very good option for these situations.
The non-woven fabric is the best material for mops and cleaning cloths, since it has great power to drag dirt and leaves no trace.
Rinse and dry surfaces always
So that the trace of the cleaning products is as small as possible (without minimizing their effects in terms of hygiene), it is recommended to rinse and dry the surfaces.
Thus, at the time when pets have contact with these surfaces, they will find them clean and the harmful effect that chemicals may have on them will be minimal.
In this article we also explained that drying the surfaces after cleaning helps to stop the proliferation of germs.
In addition, in the case of hairy, when we dry the surfaces, we prevent them from stepping on them and leaving traces in the rest of the space.

Be very careful with air fresheners

Some animals give off a characteristic smell that can sometimes be unpleasant.
Therefore, many people turn to air fresheners to keep the environment fresh and mask bad smells.
But let’s not forget that these products are highly toxic and can cause allergies or discomfort in some pets.
Microdor is a deodorizer made with natural enzymes that disintegrates bad odors naturally, so it has very low toxicity levels.
Finally, remember that keeping clean up to date is necessary not only to ensure our well-being, but also that of our pets.
