When it comes to pets, the rent market is usually split in two between landlords – usual pet ‘haters’, and tenants – whom can be quite fond of their pets. One of the most difficult situations is the one when the two have to get along. It is just a joke, of course, but there have been conflicts and prices going up for houses of apartments to let because of the appearance of pets into the discussion.
But, when you are the owner, the problem is easily solved. A pet lover – depending on the degree, of course, can even make changes to the house to accommodate the animal companion.
Here are a couple of things to do to improve your home and make it pet-friendly:
- Choose a durable and easy to clean flooring. You will then be assured that the dog will not dig in to bury a treasure in the dinning, and that the cat will not leave paw marks on the freshly washed kitchen floor.
- Use slip-proof rugs for the ‘playing’ area. The slipping rugs are a problem for children usually, but the other runner in the house might find them just as troubling.
- Make a drawer with easy-to-clean solutions. Use specific products that are pet friendly and that eliminate both stains and odours.
You will find a lot of good advice in the following article both for cats and dog lovers.
