With 9 of us pups in the house, its a wonder my Lady has any time to do anything ‘cept what she calls cleanin’. We do our best to not make messes but things just happen. With all of us trackin’ in dirt and mud and some havin’ accidents (I won’t call any names) WOOF, there is always somethin’ goin’ on. She doesn’t fuss as much anymore though. Over the years she has learned a few tricks to keepin’ it clean that makes it quick and easy. And, instead of her havin’ to drag out that heavy ole bucket and mop, she just grabs her new Libman Freedom® Spray Mop!
Her new Freedom Spray Mop from Libman must be right handy! Use to, the mopping took her lots of time but these days she even has time for extra games of fetch WOOF! Wanna know her tricks? And, you just gotta hear ’bout her new mop! Lemme fetch her to tell ya more!
Here’s my Lady to tell ya her cleaning tips and about the Libman Freedom Spray Mop that saves her time!
As you can imagine, having 9 dogs is not for the faint of heart whether it be taking care of them OR cleaning up after them. It is a constant struggle with dirt, hair, muddy paw prints, and accidents! With so many running through my home, it is inevitable there is going to be a mess, especially on the floors. Funny thing is, I will freely admit to being a clean freak and even though I still keep the house nice and clean, I have relaxed my OCD ways a lot! Somehow having 9 dogs will do that to you 🙂 You are probably shaking your head about now and thinking how in the world, right? Well, over the years, I discovered I needed to work smarter not harder at keeping things clean. After all, their daily games of fetch are waiting!
When I say working smarter, it means I have come up with some handy ways of handling the messes so they don’t consume my entire day!
5 Tips for Keeping Your Floors Clean with Dogs
Dogs are going to shed. There is just no way around it. However, you can keep control of those tumbleweeds of fur floating across your floor with regular grooming. Frequent baths and brushing can go a long way. I suggest brushing at a minimum of 3 times a week or I find it easy to carry a brush around with me outside each day and just give them quick brushes while we are having together time. Then, once or twice a week give them a thorough brushing.
Toweling them Down
I keep a towel hanging by the door so that I can towel them down before entering. They may not look dirty, but take my word for it – they are! If your dogs are anything like mine, they will roll in the dirt and dust and bring it right in the door with them to deposit it on your floor and furniture.
Cleaning Their Feet at the Door
Cleaning their feet at the door is a must especially in the rainy, muddy season. But, I also know however much you clean muddy feet you can never get all the mud from between those hairy toes!
Even though we aren’t discussing carpet today, I still vacuum my hardwood and other floors. This keeps the hair from flying up and landing somewhere else. And, keeping control of the hair and dirt in your home with frequent vacuuming is better than waiting for it to build up. You can make quick swipes through instead of spending a monster day of trying to get it all up!
There is nothing like looking across your floor and seeing muddy paw prints and/or drool spots. Yes! I said drool spots from where they have been laying. The Libman Freedom Spray Mop is the best tool for the job! Instead of dragging out the old mop and bucket (what a pain!), the Freedom Spray Mop makes quick work of your mopping chores! Just give your floors a quick run over and you have it! I find it easy to do the heavy areas with a quick swipe each night after they are in for the night.
Libman Freedom Spray Mop
You will love the ease of using the Libman Freedom Spray Mop! And, it is great for cleaning your wood floors, laminate, tile, marble, linoleum, stone, and more! Let’s take a look at its features!
The most notable feature is the neck swivels 360 degrees! This gives you much more control and makes it super handy for going under, around, and into tough spots. You will love this for getting those hard to reach areas under couches, beds, etc.!
The Freedom Spray Mop comes with a thick REUSABLE microfiber pad. It has little grooves that help it clean deep for a spotless clean – even those dried on paw prints and spots. And, when finished, simply throw in the washing machine as it is machine washable up to 100 times! I love this feature as it makes it a more sustainable (and less expensive) option than throw away pads.
From hair, dirt, grime, slobber and of course muddy paw prints, the Libman Freedom Spray Mop will save you time. You no longer have to take the time and break your back lugging around a heavy mop bucket to get your floors clean. And, honestly, the lugging of the mop bucket is why I always hated mopping. But, with the Freedom Spray Mop you simply fill the container with your favorite cleaner, pull the trigger to spray, and then mop away the unsightly dirt and grime!
The dogs are happier that I have more time to spend playing their favorite game of fetch. And, I am happier that I am not stuck inside doing chores. So, it is a win for all of us!
My big Ozzy even says he will even help do the mopping! Can’t get much better than that! Seriously though, you will love the ease of using the Libman Freedom Spray Mop and how quick it makes the chore of mopping. But, that’s not all!
