Hamsters are a very popular pet, because they do not take a lot of place, they do not need walking like dogs and they are quite easy to take care of. The only essential thing that you need to do besides feeding them is to clean their cage. That is not such a hard thing to do. All you need to do is follow some simple steps. Here is how to clean a hamster cage:
Before you begin with the cleaning, cleaners Brunswick suggest you gather all your cleaning supplies. They say that this is a good idea because this way you will save time once you begin with the cleaning. If you do not do this, you will have to go around and look for every supply and this is quite a waste of time.
After that, take the hamster gently out and put him somewhere safe. Make sure you put him in a place from where it can not escape, otherwise you will have to chase it around the room.
Now, you will have to begin with the cleaning. First remove the top of the cage, the food bowl and the water container. Take a soft cloth and dampen it with water. Then use the dampen cloth to wipe clean the parts that you have just removed.
After that, empty the cage. Put the hamster bedding in a plastic bag and discard it.
Next, find a soft brush and an appropriate cleaning solution and clean the cage with it. Hamsters usually pick a specific place to go to the bathroom, so make sure you clean that thoroughly as well. Then rinse well with water.
Leave the cage to air dry. When they are dried, assemble all the parts back together.
As a last step put in new clean bedding, also cleaning Brunswick company reminds you not to forget to fill the water container with fresh water and put some food in the food bowl.
And when you are done, simply put the hamster gently back in and close the cage.
