Dogs and Cleaning Services: Steps to Take to Ensure Safety for Your Pet and the Cleaning Crew

carpet-cleaning-allergiesHiring a professional cleaning service for your Toronto home can provide you with many benefits. The first (and arguably most important) is that you and your family will enjoy a nice, clean home environment. This could be highly beneficial for many health reasons.

When you have pets, such as a cat or dog, you may need to make certain provisions (plans) in order to keep them safe. You also want to make sure that the professional cleaning crew is going to be safe when they come to your home to provide this invaluable service.

Keep Pets in a Safe Place

If you are going to be home when the cleaning service arrives, you should plan to gather your pets at least 15 minutes before they arrive. This will provide you plenty of opportunity to chase them down (those quick and limber cats, especially) and get them into either a pet carrier or a room that can be closed off and won’t need to be cleaned.

Do Not Let Dogs Loose

While you may just assume that your beloved Fido is the friendliest, calmest, and most good-natured animal on the planet, keep in mind that strangers to him are going to be coming into his domain. Animals tend to be incredibly protective of their homes and families.

Whether or not you’re going to be home when the professional cleaning service arrives, be sure to keep your dog either on a leash or (more preferably) in a room, cage, or carrier so that they don’t nip or try to bite one of the cleaning crew. Just imagine for a moment that one of the cleaning professionals was reaching under the couch where Fido keeps his prized rawhide bone and he sees this. Dogs can be very territorial and the last thing you need is a bite related incident on your hands.
