If you are a pet owner, you know all too well the results of the young pets and electronics equation. Although the cute and cuddly little fur balls are lovable to no end, the trail of destruction in the early years can be costly. Cats love to knock over anything and everything and dogs will chew whatever is in sight. It can be daunting to say the least, but there are some preventive measures that can be taken to limit the chances of your favorite electronic devices getting destroyed by your pet.
Train your pets that counters and desks are a “no go zone.” This is a crucial step in the long term goal of protecting your electronic devices. It will be far easier to have your pets avoid these spaces than it will be to remember that you are never able to set a glass of water on your work desk. Unfortunately this will not keep the pets from sneaking underneath you to those delicious cords they love to chew up. Split loom tubing is a cheap solution to protecting the cords long term. These can be purchased in many different sizes, and can even help with the organization of wires along with reducing the chances that you will have to untie a knot of wires. They may need to be replaced every once in a while but it will be far cheaper than buying a new set of wires for your device. Also, pet hair can end up deep inside your devices and cause longterm damage to your hardware. Dryer sheets work well to collect the fur and prevent further harm. You can do this about twice a year to maintain your devices successfully. If you do have pets and you wires or devices have gotten chewed to pieces, use these Groupon Coupons for the Microsoft Store to get replacement cords for discounted prices. The best way to avoid this issue is to utilize the preventative measures mentioned above. Stopping the problem before it becomes one will make for a more cohesive atmosphere for you and your pet.
