Pets are an important part of many people’s lives. They provide companionship. They are loyal. And they are a constant source of affection.

But sometimes pets also can be territorial. Many dogs and some cats don’t like strangers coming into your home. So they are likely to become agitated, or even aggressive when your cleaning crew arrives for your regular scheduled home cleaning.

So what should you do with your pets while your house is being cleaned?

Cleaning Services in Fort Myers — Segregating Pets and People

In some cases, the problem will solve itself. Many cats, for example, will find an out of the way corner to hang out until your cleaning crew is done cleaning your home. It could be a basement, behind a couch, under a bed, or anyplace where they can get a little privacy.

Dogs, on the other hand, usually won’t go and hide when strangers come into their home. They are more prone to bark and challenge visitors they don’t know very well.

So before your cleaning crew arrives, it’s a good idea to put your dog somewhere safe, such as a fenced backyard or a locked bedroom. You might even arrange to have somebody take your dogs for a walk, or even do it yourself, while your house is being cleaned.

Cleaning Services in Fort Myers — Communication Is the Key

If you are going to keep your pets in your home while it is being cleaned, be sure to let the cleaning crew leader know where the animal so that he or she can tell the rest of the cleaners. The last thing you want is for your pet, or your cleaners, to surprise each other unexpectedly.

At Silvana’s Touch Cleaning, we are accustomed to cleaning homes that house pets. Open communication is the best way to keep people and pets happy and safe.
