Making Your Home Sparkle

Every year, my mom and dad invite my grandmother, my sister, my brother-in-law, my husband, and I to their house during the holidays. While all of us stay at my parents’ home, we make a big mess. I enjoy spending time with my family. However, I feel bad about getting my parents’ home dirty. Does your home look uncharacteristically messy since holiday guests left? Consider hiring a professional cleaning service to make it sparkle again. The skilled technicians from a cleaning service can shampoo your carpets, clean your oven, and dust your furniture. On this blog, I hope you will discover the amazing benefits of hiring a cleaning service to come to your home after the Christmas holidays. Enjoy!

Adopting A Pet Pig? Take The Proper Steps To Maintain A Clean Carpet

When you bring home a cat or a dog, it should not be too difficult to learn about their habits. Millions of households have these animals and you may have had experience with them while growing up. Cats need a litter box that is cleaned regularly to prevent the carpet from getting damaged. They will also benefit from scratching posts to keep them from feeling inclined to scratch the carpet instead. Dogs must be housetrained immediately to eliminate bathroom accidents from happening inside the house. But, pet pigs are a little different and require a different set of rules to keep the carpet clean.

Rinse Their Feet Before Coming Inside

Like dogs, it is easy for a pig's feet to get dirty while they are spending time out in the backyard. This is especially true if you let them cool off with a mud bath or even by turning on a sprinkler. Keep a towel and spray bottle filled with water and a few drops of mild soap to clean their feet before coming inside. If their body is dirty from rolling around, you will need to give them a full water rinse instead.

Give Them a Designated Eating Area

Pigs can eat pellets, but they also benefit from a wide array of vegetables. Pellets are nothing to worry about because they are not going to make your carpet dirty; you will just need to vacuum them up. But, fresh vegetables can be a problem, especially moist ones that can make the carpet damp. It is also possible for small pieces to get hidden throughout the house, which will eventually lead to wilting and rotting. Giving your pet pig a designated place to eat for every meal will keep carpet messes from happening.

Start Housetraining Immediately

Pigs can be housetrained with just a small amount of time, effort, and dedication. So, as soon as your pig comes home, you should start working on the process of getting them going to the bathroom outside. This will minimize how many messes you have to clean up inside the home. You may find it beneficial to restrict your pig from moving around the entire home due to the risk of carpet damage. This is helpful when you go out for a while because you cannot keep an eye on them and their bathroom needs.

Implementing these tips will help you avoid having to hire carpet cleaners more often than normal.
