Keep the Litter Box Clean and Your Schedule Open
It’s important to clean your cat’s litter box frequently. Don’t limit yourself to once a week – try to do it every other day. When you do this your cat is more likely to use the box. They won’t wander off to pee or poop in other areas of the house. Yes, urine can attract mold if left alone for too long. By the same token, make sure your dog gets potty breaks several times a day.
Expend Your Pet’s Energy
A restless pet is more likely to get into your trash and make a mess. Should anything in your trash have liquid in it or on it, and said liquid falls where you can’t see it, this is another instance where mold can grow. Play with your pet as often as you can. What about a game of fetch or a trip to the park?
Pay Attention to Your Aquarium
Inspect your aquarium for leaks and keep it clean. Try to avoid spilling water when you feed the fish or move the tank around.
