• What does your service entail?
We use lobby dustpans and small rakes to pick up
the waste, and deposit it into plastic bag-lined pails. All waste is removed completely from the property, bagged into 3 mil
trash can liners, and taken to the landfill. We are currently investigating the feasibility of using biodegradable bags and
liners. All surfaces which may touch the ground are sanitized before entering the property and we use a biodegradable enzyme
to deodorize and break down any soft waste which cannot be removed. We carefully follow a checklist to make sure that nothing
is missed, and when finished, we leave a service slip on your door indicating whether everything appeared normal or if there
were any problems.
• Is there anything I need to do before
- Mow all grass to a reasonable length and cut back weeds
- Trim vegetation at fencelines in areas which dogs have been known to use
- Rake or blow leaves off the lawn, and pick up and remove all storm debris
- Remove all toys and sports equipment from the general area
If there are any areas which may be accessible to animals but not to people, such as under a shed or a deck, block them
to prevent animals from using these areas. If we can't get to it, we can't remove it. In the spring, make sure
that the first push of new grass is trimmed before we come out. It's more difficult to locate and remove pet waste in
mounds of new grass.
• Are your chemicals safe around animals and people?
Certainly. We use KennelSol disinfectant and cleaner to sanitize the equipment. KennelSol is a broad-spectrum
germicidal, cleanser and deodorizer, effective against all pathogens including canine parvovirus, which leaves a faint but
pleasant wintergreen scent. AlphaZyme Plus enzymatic solution is used to deodorize and aid in breaking down any loose
stool or vomit left in the lawn, which leaves an odor of black cherry. These products are manufactured by Alpha Tech Pet, Inc.
for use in zoos, kennels, veterinary clinics, and animal shelters, and are safe for use around all animals and humans.
• I work 8-5, Monday through Friday...can we meet after work?
Absolutely! We understand that it can be difficult, if not downright impossible, for people to arrange for appointments
during business hours. We're happy to meet with you in the evenings, Monday through Thursday, and Saturday mornings.
