Moving Out Soon? Here’s How to De-Pet Your Apartment

Moving with Pets

If you think that finding a dog-friendly apartment was challenging enough when you first moved into the city, but when you are about to move out and change locations, there is more work that needs to be done. What you do not want is to be charged for damages and messes that may have been left behind by your K9 companion. Therefore, you should take some time to de-pet your current apartment before moving to your next place of residence.

TURN YOUR APARTMENT FREE FROM THE MESS AND DAMAGE DONE BY YOUR PETS BEFORE YOU MOVE 

 

De-Petting Your Furniture

There are many who sell their furniture when they are relocating, but taking your old couch to a garage sale that is practically riddled with Fido’s fur would not attract attention from potential buyers. What you can do is to use a squeegee. A squeegee is not just for your windows when you’re washing them as this handy cleaning tool can also take care of all that fur that’s on your couch. You can also wear rubber gloves then running them under water. Afterwards, run your hands (with the gloves) over your sofa. The wet material will attract the hair. You can then vacuum it all up once you’ve made a big pile of fur.

 

On Removing Stains

Sometimes your dog can leave more undesirables on floors and walls. In the case of urine stains, you can use baking soda and vinegar to get rid of them. Simply pour the vinegar over the stain, then dust the spot with the help of baking soda. Place a plate over the top of where the stain is located then let it sit for a day or two. Remove the plate then vacuum afterwards to remove the stain completely.

 

Invest in a Microfiber Mop for Removing Fur From Hard Floors

When you vacuum your laminate, hardwood, or tile floors, it will most likely just move your pet’s fur all around the place rather than sucking them all up completely. Therefore, it is wise to invest in an electrostatic dry mop or a microfiber one. These products will attract dirt, small particles, and of course, your dog’s fur.
