What to do with your Pets when the cleaners come?

Hey there, fellow pet parents! We LOVE pet’s here at CleanFlorida. We are official LOVE BOMBERS of Dogs and Cats and we often times have a dog and two cats at the office with us. This is Truffle our office Cat. So we understand that our fur babies are a huge part of our lives, but when it comes to having the cleaning crew over, sometimes our fur friends have an odd reaction to us. Can you believe it?

From curious cats to overzealous dogs, pets can make the cleaning process a bit more adventurous at times for the cleaning teams. But fear not! Here are some tips to help make sure your pets and the cleaners can coexist peacefully:

Consider Crating your pets: I know, I know. Your pets are like family and the thought of locking them up might make you feel like a monster. Consider crating your dog or setting up a cozy room for your cat with their favorite toys and litter box. This will give the cleaners space to do their thing and prevent your furry friend from getting in the way.
Give the cleaners a heads up: Make sure to let the cleaning company know you have pets before they arrive. This will allow them to prepare accordingly and maybe even bring some extra treats for your four-legged friends.

Clean up after your pets: We all know that our pets can be a bit messy at times. Before the cleaning crew arrives, take the time to pick up any toys, clean up any accidents, and remove excess fur from furniture or carpets.

Reward good behavior: If your pets are on their best behavior during the cleaning process, make sure to reward them! A treat or some extra playtime can go a long way in encouraging good behavior in the future.

Laugh it off: Let’s be real, our pets can be downright silly sometimes. If they do happen to get in the way or cause a distraction, just try to have a laugh about it. After all, it’s all part of the pet-owner experience!

By following these tips, you can ensure a smooth and stress-free cleaning experience for both your pets and the cleaning crew. And who knows, maybe your pets will even make some new friends in the process!
