Hedgehog cages are generally cleaned once a week. This is a good rule of thumb, but it can vary depending on the cage and the type of substrate being used.
The most important part of cage cleaning is to ensure that your pet hedgehog is not exposed to any harmful substances during the process. Make sure that you wear gloves when cleaning out the cage to avoid coming into contact with any chemicals or other substances that could harm your hedgehog.
Cleaning Your Hedgehog’s Cage
Before you begin, make sure that all food, water and bedding accessories have been removed from the cage. This will help to keep everything as clean as possible and will also prevent your hedgehog from ingesting anything toxic while you’re cleaning out its enclosure.
Use hot water and soap to thoroughly rinse out the entire cage, including all removable parts such as shelves and ramps. Then, wipe down all surfaces with a dry towel or rag to remove any moisture that may still be present inside the cage after rinsing it out with soapy water.
