Love Your Pet. Love Your Home.


If you’re the owner of a pet you will know only too well that they tend to make a lot of mess in the home, which means regular hoovering, sweeping, mopping and scrubbing is needed to remove stray hairs and ground in dirt and keep pet smalls at bay.

While having a pet at home inevitably means more cleaning, a lot of common cleaning agents are not suitable for use around pets. Like humans an animal can become very ill or even die if it accidentally ingests cleaning chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or disinfectants that contain phenols and in concentrated amounts they can also cause chemical burns to skin and paw pads. And it’s not just a case of proper storage as animals constantly sniff and lick their surroundings (especially if something smells different) and their own fur when they groom so they can even ingest chemicals left on the surfaces in your home or from their fur if they’ve rubbed up or lay on a newly cleaned surface.

When choosing cleaning products for your home, you should read the labels carefully. If there are pets at home, it’s best to avoid any products that can cause respiratory irritation or that claim to be harmful if swallowed. Pet owners should also avoid products that can cause irritation or burns if they come in contact with the skin.

Fortunately, pet owners have plenty of affordable options when it comes to pet-friendly cleaning products such as green products that are made from plant-based ingredients and that are free of bleach or ammonia, home made solutions such as white vinegar and baking soda pastes or cleaning with steam.

Using a steam cleaner is a great way to help keep your home clean and your family and four legged friends safe. It kills 99% of household germs and bacteria, will kill dust mites and bed bugs within seconds and will help keep flea infestations at bay as the steam will kill the larvae. All without any use of harsh chemicals!

Handheld portable steamers such as the HAAN HandiPro are great for cleaning and sanitizing all of your pets belongings from toys, to harnesses, bedding, to feeding areas and an upright steam mop will make fast work of muddy paw prints.

The HAAN Paw Pro SI80 is the ideal solution for cleaning up after your pet. The Paw Pro converts from an upright steam mop into a handheld steamer at the touch of a button allowing you to clean every surface in your home from the kitchen to bathroom, living room, to bedroom. Using Smart Steam Technology, a HAAN steam cleaner provides chemical free, natural, safe, and environmentally friendly home cleaning.
