Floor Cleaners Safe for Dogs

If you're a pet owner who's in the market for pet-friendly floor cleaners, there are a number of options from which to choose. The following are the most common types of dog safe floor cleaners.

White Wine Vinegar

Not only is white wine vinegar a wonderful cooking ingredient, when mixed with warm water, it can be a very effective floor cleaner. A homemade cleaning solution of 1/4 cup of white wine vinegar and 1 cup of warm water is very useful in purging assorted types of dirt and debris and is safe to use around any manner of pet.

Mild Soap

Mild or all-natural brands of soap, when combined with water, are acceptable floor cleaners in homes with pets. To be safe, you should always keep your pets away from the area being cleaned until all of the soap has been rinsed away. While it won't leave behind any potentially harmful fumes, you don't want your animals to accidentally ingest any soap.

Steam Cleaners

Although they can be rather costly to own, the steam generated by steam cleaners won't have any adverse health effects on animals. Just make sure that your steam cleaner is filled with water and not a commercial cleaning solution which can be harmful to your pets.
