What to Ask Before You Use a Dog Poop Clean-Up Service
March 29, 2022at4:00 AM
With summer fast approaching, many homeowners have started sprucing up their backyards for gatherings with family and friends.
However, if you have a dog, you may have more than just some lawnmowing to do.
Over the winter and spring months, many Fairfield County dog owners are guilty of letting their dogs out to do their business in their yard.
While this is fine in theory, most forget to clean it up later. Months of this can lead to a minefield of dog waste, which is smelly, unsanitary and an absolute buzzkill for any outdoor gathering. But busy people rarely have enough time to clean up their yard of dog poop. That’s why it’s a great idea to invest in dog poop clean-up services.
A dog poop clean-up service will come to your home and clean up your yard of any dog waste. But if you’ve never used a dog poop clean-up service, you may wonder what you’re in for. Here are some great questions to ask before you hire a dog poop clean-up service.
What will you do with the dog poop afterward?
While it’s great to have the poop picked up, many homeowners wonder what happens to the waste after their yard is clear. It’s a good idea to ask a dog poop cleaning team how they plan on disposing of the poop so you know what to expect. Most will take the feces with them, but it’s always good to be sure.
How long does the service take?
It’s important to ask how long the cleanup service will take, especially if you have an event coming up soon. The last thing you want is to have guests arriving for an outdoor dinner party only to find someone cleaning up dog poop in your backyard. Make sure to get a time estimate so you can plan accordingly.
How quickly can you come to clean my yard?
Dog poop clean-up services tend to book out in advance, especially in the spring and summer. Many people need help keeping their lawn clean throughout the warmer months, so it’s good to call ahead of time to find out their availability. And if you plan on using a dog poop clean-up service for your yard throughout the summer, ask about repeat visits to keep your yard looking beautiful.
How much do you charge?
The all-important question of budget is, of course, an important one. However, the answer often depends on how big your yard is and how soon you need someone to come clean your yard. For example, if you have an acre or two of land, it will take more time to clean up than someone with a few hundred square feet of grass. When you request your estimate, make sure you have a good idea of how big your yard is and when you need it cleaned.
They say that dog is a man’s best friend, and while that may be the case, your pup can unintentionally make a mess out of your yard. But you don’t have to suffer through extensive clean-ups and hunting with a pooper scooper.
