Our pets are our beloved four-legged children, and their care is never important to us when we have to leave them behind for business, pleasure or when travel plans arise urgently and unexpectedly.
Pets are very popular in the United States, as evidenced by statistics that estimate that 43 million households have more than one dog, and nearly 30 million households have more than one cat.
When we have to temporarily part with fur babies, we look for dog care and kennels that can meet their needs, because every facility is different.
Statistics tell us that over 30 million pet owners leave their pets in the care of a reputable facility each year.
The busy lives of today’s consumers often force the need for frequent travel, which has subsequently led to the explosive growth of kennels, pet hotels and dog grooming facilities.
Odor and Odor Control in Dog Grooming Facilities
Just a place to care for dogs that offers food and exercise.
A pleasant, soothing environment may be elusive, but nevertheless, it is vital to a dog’s well-being, and it can affect the animal’s ability to thrive without the support of their primary family connection.
Odor and odor control options provided by our air freshener experts at Pestco Professional Services provide durable, cost-effective solutions.
A kennel or dog care facility must maintain an environment that will ensure that the pets in their care remain healthy and happy.
Traffic at dog care facilities and kennels is constant and many new animals arrive, interact with others, and leave each day of the year.
Even the most responsible of caretakers have no way of knowing where each animal has been prior to arrival or what they have been exposed to.
This is why management of the environment (which only they can control) is so important. It focuses on maintaining safe levels of disease, odor and pest control.
Urine and feces are the most common contaminants, and they create an unsanitary and unsanitary environment, increasing the risk of both disease and stress for all animals.
When the waste material breaks down, an ammonia gas is produced that emits steam and an unpleasant odor.
If the waste is not cleaned in time and accumulates, this gas can adversely affect the dog’s eyes and lungs.
Feces have such a terrible smell because they contain bacteria, which make up about 25% of the total weight of the feces.
These pathogens cannot be seen with the naked eye and are known to reproduce at an alarming rate every 10 minutes.
Bad behavior can be greatly reduced by offering boarding dogs multiple trips per day to elimination locations within a kennel or dog care facility.
Also, workers must be vigilant and remove waste as it occurs, which will help reduce bad odors.
Dog care and reduction of malodors in kennels require precautions regarding bathing, clean bedding, good ventilation and quiet arrangements.
Proper ventilation and dehumidification, in particular, are important agents in controlling the rate of bacterial reproduction.
Moisture also presents a major problem as it provides the perfect environment for the reproduction and proliferation of dangerous pathogens.
There’s no substitute for our hard-duty neutralizers and deodorizers to maintain fresh, odor-free facilities.
Our most powerful weapon is a neutral additive known as metagene, which attacks and destroys malodor at the molecular level.
Advantages of scented dog care facilities
The right scent in the right place translates into relief for animals that are suddenly displaced from their homes and brought into a new and alien setting with strange sounds, sights and, most importantly, smells.
Scent has the power to calm, soothe and lower stress levels as well as energize.
It can engage dogs in play and help distract them from fear and anxiety.
According to documentation from various animal care facilities, citrus scents in particular are known for their ability to reduce stress levels by 40% to 3%!
The following fragrances formulated by Air Scent International are popular because they act as calming agents for anxious animals and promote a feeling of freshness and cleanliness throughout the dog care facility or kennel.
