Floor cleaning

Have heard that certain scents are harmful to parrots. What can I use to clean and deoderize laminate wood flooring that won’t harm my African Grey?


Hi Nancy,

You might look into one of the steamers that just uses hot water. Most models have settings for laminate. Bona floor cleaners are pet and child safe. I have used them around my birds. However, this is in a well ventilated room with the AC on. I would suggest contacting them directly to confirm that they are safe specifically around birds. Most laminate floors can also be cleaned with diluted vinegar.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
