Paw-friendly flooring

Try to avoid rugs and carpets as they can be a breeding ground for hair and bacteria which is harmful to your pet’s health. Opt for those flats in Bangalore that have vitrified tiles rather than a glossy floor. A glossy floor will exhibit the scratches made by your pet in a much clearer manner which is something that you don’t want. Ensure that the flooring is skid-proof with a matte finish.

Designated Pet Space

Assign a dedicated area to your pets in your flat in Bangalore where you can keep a small mattress for them to sleep. Keep their food bowls and toys nearby thus making it their own little space. Birds and fish require lesser maintenance when compared to dogs. In case you have a bird, keep the cage away from the window to protect it from the rain and sun. Place your aquarium near an electrical outlet as a fish aquarium would need filters, heaters and lights, all of which need electricity.

Cleaning Agents

Avoid strong cleaning agents for mopping as pets tend to lick the floors and can ingest potentially harmful chemicals.

Pet-friendly furniture

Ensure that the furniture has rounded or beveled edges to avoid hurting your pets. Leather or artificial leather is an ideal choice for the upholstery in your flats for sale in electronic city as they are easy to maintain unlike materials like chenille or synthetic cloth which absorb dirt easily.

Keep your trash cans closed
