So You Want A Pet Friendly Office?
Let’s face it, for most the thought of having a pet friendly office is awesome. What’s better than spending parts of your day with a cute and fuzzy animal? Nothing really is better, well maybe some things are but you get the point. While there are endless benefits to having a pet in the office, from stress relief to a boost in morale, having an office pet does pose certain problems for keeping your office clean. Along with our four legged friends come drool, paw prints, potty accidents and fur, lots of fur. Before you em”bark” on the epic journey to a pet friendly office, here are a few helpful tips to keep your office clean.
Start by having the supplies you’ll need on hand, paper towels, disinfectant wipes, pet deodorizer (for accidents) and a pet hair vacuum. You’ll also want to put a pretty significant cleaning program in place to keep your office smelling like an office and not like the dog house. Set ground rules for employees who are bringing pets in and make sure there’s an understanding that they must clean up after their furry friend. That takes a little bit of the fun and excitement out of it but it’s part of working as a team to get the job done and boost morale for everyone
Your best bet is to have a professional cleaner come in at least 3 times a week, who has experience dealing with the unique cleaning challenges having a pet friendly office. A professional will keep your space looking, smelling and feeling fresh so your team can continue to enjoy the perks of having their furry friends at work with them!
