Cleaners Safe for Dogs

Most dog owners don't realize the importance of purchasing safe, non-toxic floor cleaners until their dog gets sick because of it. Just like people, dogs can develop allergy-like symptoms to the chemicals and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)* that are often used in flooring and floor cleaning products.

The majority of dogs spend a good amount of their time on the floor - playing, chewing on bones and exploring. And for the most part, they'll attempt to eat, lick and chew on anything they can find. It's the curious nature of dogs that makes them a primary target for a toxic surface. I'm a proud parent of two beautiful Pomeranians and have seen what can happen when you use harsh conventional cleaners on your floors. It wasn't long before I realized that I needed to start making more conscious decisions on the cleaning products that I used in my home.

Safe cleaners are usually ones that are natural based. This can include cleaning products that are environmentally friendly. Of course, you still need to make sure that the cleaner is compatible with the floor type you have, in addition to being safe for your pup(s).

You can learn more about safe cleaners for dogs in the Pet-Friendly Flooring section on FindAnyFloor.com, as well as on Floortube, FindAnyFloor.com's latest site addition. Floortube features floor care videos on a variety of floor types. There dog owners can find all of the dos and don'ts on floor maintenance, as well as advice on the best floor surfaces for certain pet types. If you have an experience with floor cleaners and dogs and would like to share, feel free to post a comment at the end of this blog!

Something that I use to get the dog smell out of my carpet is baking soda. If you sprinkle baking soda onto carpet a couple hours before vacuuming you refresh your floors smell that way. Its a natural and non-toxic approach to cleaning you home. obviously baking soda is OK for dogs. Another good cleaning product is Simple Green. They do not test on animals and it hasn't harmed any of my little ones.

Another great cleaner that is safe for pets is the Amazing Whip It. A friend who happens to be a vet recommended this to me and I absolutely love it! It is 100% natural and biodegradable. It works wonders on my carpet and I even use it on surfaces all over the house including laundry so it saves me money.

I use warm water with vinegar to clean my wood floors. It seems to clean them nicely (works well on windows) and is actually a really good antibacterial and antiviral agent (as good as bleach). I also keep a spray bottle of vinegar and water in the kitchen to clean my counters. The added bonus is that it is way cheaper than floor cleaning products.
