How Do I Prepare a Room for a Guest With Cat Allergies?

Your cat is a significant member of your household — but you’ve got guests coming, and they’re allergic. While there is no way to totally remove all possible pet allergens in your house, you can reduce those present general and make the room as tidy and allergen-free as feasible for your company.

Isolate and Vacuum

Begin by isolating the space. Limit your cat into other regions of the house to prevent reintroduction of kitty fur and dander. This would also be a fantastic time to have your pet bathed and brushed. Strip the bed; eliminate all the cushions and anything else soft that is from the room, such as the clothes in the cupboard. Whatever can not be washed ought to be saved elsewhere, or placed in plastic bags and stored in the cupboard for the duration of the stay. Dust and vacuum blinds or draperies and vacuum or launder any throw rugs. Do not forget to clean out the air vents, heating ducts and fans in the room.

Launder the Linens

When the room is clean, launder the bedding, for example, duvet and pillows if possible, and return them directly to the room — you do not need them picking up cat hair from elsewhere in your house. If the cushions cannot be laundered, you can place them in dust-mite-proof covers. Look at putting this type of cover on your bed and box spring as well. Launder a pair of towels and place them in the space as well so your guest has bathroom linens free of cat hair.

Clean Thoroughly

Wipe down all surfaces, such as walls, windows, tabletops and tough furniture. Pay particular attention to baseboards, furniture legs and the tops of doorways, all places where cat hair may collect. Open drawers and wipe out the insides as well. If the drawers hold blankets, clothes or other soft things, launder it all, or eliminate it or bag it. Draw furniture away from the walls and then wipe the backs of the pieces as well.

The remainder of the home

You’re almost done. Think about removing large bunk things and replacing them with non-upholstered pieces. If you have an air filter, then install it and flip it on, now the space is as clean as you can get it. You could also utilize allergy-reducing sprays to help control allergens from the guest room. When you’ve got the guest room done, be sure that you keep kitty out. Also be sure anything you bring in the room has been washed first. Give the rest of the house a great cleaning, including cleaning and dusting everywhere.
