Animals are a blessing to a family and can make a wonderful addition to your home. I love them so much I work rescuing animals and my home has become a lively version of Noah's Ark without all of the thunder and lightning. With all of these animals as you can guess pet fur can become an issue if we do not make a point to control it. There is no reason to let fur stop you from adding a pet to your home.
The best thing you can do to help keep pet fur in your home under control is to start at the source. Brush your puts often to trap shedding fur in the brush before it can shed and spread around your home. This is particularly important in the summertime when our pets are shedding more than normal.
Keep fleas under control with topicals and prescription internal flea medicines from your veterinarian. This will prevent your pets from scratching and shedding fur all over the house while dealing with a flea. The reduced pet fur is just one of the many reasons to control fleas around and on your pets.
Get a quality pet vacuum that can handle large amounts of pet fur and trap it with quality filters. Use this vacuum to regularly clean up your floors and upholstery. This will help keep pet fur from taking over your sofa and landing all over you. Remember while it can be tempting to make a, no pets on the sofa rule your pets are not likely to care when you are not around so cleaning up is your best defense.
A dust mop like Swiffer or a microfiber washable version can help control the pet hair on your hard floors. Hardwood floors often hide pet hair in the groves that are found by the owner's unsuspecting foot. Hard floors are often a source of balls of fur that have gathered together and get blown across the room by the fan like a little tumbleweed. Regular dust mopping can prevent this. If you do not like to dust mop look for a vacuum that can do hard floors as well as carpets.
Keep a lint roller by the door or in your bag. Even the cleanest home will still have some pet hair that will land on your clothing. This is completely unavoidable unless you have a habit of turning your pets down for a warm snuggle on the way out the door. Instead of stressing if they will get fur on your work clothes clean them up on your way out the door or in your car.
Look for places that may trap pet fur. This can be simple places like your cat towers and sofa cushions. Make a point to deep clean these areas soften when running the vacuum around other areas of the room those dark corners can easily be forgotten.
Give your pets a high-quality diet. Excess shedding can often be a sign of nutrient deficiency. Giving your pets a quality balanced diet can help reduce excess shedding and make it easier to control the pet fur in your home.
While the government has strictly advised against all public gatherings, with some states even banning open houses and home showings, despite a global pandemic, with proper safety measures in place we must find a way to move forward. The real estate industry has bounced back with effective technological solutions to assist in their transactions and nullify the dangers posed by COVID 19 pandemic.
Any offers submitted on a listing, can now be completed by buyers virtually with the assistance of e-sign or docusign applications. Virtual tours replace traditional open house events and showings, and virtual conferences are being conducted instead of conventional face-to-face introductory meetings. The most popular among buyers are access to 3D virtual tours of houses where the buyer has complete independence to roam around the property virtually and internalize the overall look of a house. Jerry Mac Homes is now proud to offer 3D virtual tours with every listing. If any pre-qualified buyer sees a home that you are interested in but afraid to visit it in person for any reason, Jerry Mac will visit the home and take a 3D virtual tour so you can safely view the home from the comfort of your computer or mobile device.
When buyers place an offer on a home, home inspectors are doing the inspections at the property. Some are now offering Face Time meetings or virtual walk throughs, in order to allow you to view the entire process live. The entire home buying process, including signing of the purchase agreement, can be done electronically. Jerry Mac Homes proudly partners with mortgage lenders in the market who have shifted their entire process online, removing the need to appear physically. Title companies are also having closings in separate rooms that are immediately cleaned or conducting them with homeowners or buyers staying inside their cars. Keeping Home Buyers and Sellers Safe!
Of course, if anyone still wants to be physically involved in the process of viewing the house, by maintaining social distancing and using proper precautions like masks, gloves, and sanitizers, showings and deals can still be carried out safely.
