Safe to mop with chemicals around bird?
by: The Avian Vet

I recommend that your bird be in a different room when you are mopping and do not let the bird in the room until the floor dries. With any household cleaner there is a potential for causing respiratory disease in a bird.

Pet safe cleaner for moping
by: Tracie

Dr B will eventually answer this. My "take" on it is that the fumes can be dangerous and the ventilation you do or don't have plays a part in all of it.

To be safe, we use a pet safe cleanser for cleaning our whole house. The only thing it doesn't work well on is glass and mirrors, and adding a little vinegar to water will work there.
