We all love our pets! Cats, dogs, turtles…the list goes on and on. But what about your cleaning service? Will they love your pets? If you are considering hiring a house cleaning service be sure to let them know that you have pets.

It’s possible that some of the cleaning staff may have allergies or even fears of being around pets, especially dogs. If the service knows ahead of time that you have pets, they can make sure to have a staff member that’s good with animals. You also may want to ask your cleaning service what type of cleaning chemicals they will be using. Strong chemicals could be harmful to your pets.

If you are not going to be home while the cleaning takes place, and you have a dog, it’s a good idea to have the dog secured in your garage or fenced in area. It may seem convenient to ask your cleaning pro to let your dog outside if needed. We don’t recommend this as they will not be prepared for anything that may happen.

If you have cats, they will probably run and hide at the site/sound of a vacuum cleaner. If they are indoor cats only be sure to warn your cleaning service not to let them out. Most home cleaning services will not clean or change a cat litter box but they will clean up around it.
