1) Hair removal tool (lint brush)
2) Odoban (this is a great cleaner that removes the smell of pet urine from fabric surfaces)
3) Big litter boxes or enough for the number of cats you have. Using the best litter - not necessarily the cheapest. Usually the cheapest is very dusty and doesn't help control odor.
4) Vacuum or Broom. This is an absolute must for keep pet hair at bay. You should sweep or vacuum daily when you have indoor pets.
5) Make sure you clean out litter boxes weekly. Pet bedding should be washed weekly - or even thrown outside in the sun for a few hours weekly. This eliminates odors!!
6) Wash blankets the pets use weekly. (more frequently if they are stinky)
When you have indoor pets it requires more effort to keeping your house smelling fresh. Open your windows for at least 30 minutes daily. This helps clean the air of your home and gets rid of any lingering musty odors. You should brush your pet daily to keep their hair loss at a minimum - at least to keep them from losing hair all over your home. Keeping your pet bathed regularly will help keep smells at bay too.
Make sure you keep their food and litter in sealed containers that they can't tear or break open. You can also store it in the garage in sealed containers to keep mice away.
You can use a black light on areas where your pet has made messes. This will help you be aware if you were able to clean up their mess in its entirety. If you haven't got it all cleaned, use the odoban on it for extra cleaning and smell removal. This cleaner also keeps your pets from remarking their mess areas. Which is key to keeping you house smelling fresh and clean.
