I have a cleaning system rota going going to keep work load down. Every day cages are spot cleaned, litter trays emptied and changed, shelves wiped and any mucky bars wiped, only take 5 mins if that. hammocks are changed every 2 days, again takes 2 minutes. Once a week substrate is channged and bases washed, beause everything else has been done through the weeks this then only takes a hour or 2 as i do the litter changes, bar cleaning etc.. same day. I dont change hammock same day though or they scent mark!
It isnt hard really but need to stickto system to keep on top The only problem I have with smell is the girls yole cage as the bars arent coated, they are starting to get tothat wiffy stage no matter how much there scrubbed. I will be jayplacking the bars at some point in next month to solve this
