Pets & Home Renovation
Renovating your home is no simple task and
while some jobs may take longer than others, planning what to do with your pets
is a very smart thing to do. If you are
a pet owner and are going to be renovating your home, you must think ahead and
find a place for your pets to stay while the job gets done.
So whether you own a dog, a cat, a fish, a
hamster or an iguana, renovating your home will surely make them uncomfortable
and if you do not plan ahead your Charlotte plumbers could have problems with
your little friends too. It is well
known that some dogs and cats can bite or scratch strangers and this could
become a problem when your professional plumber is working in your home.
If you cannot afford to send your pets to a
specialized hotel for a few days, there are always other options to consider
and some of these may work for you:
a family member or friend for help. If you
know someone close to you who loves animals and can take care of your pets for
a few days, this will solve your problem right away. Not only will you have more space and
tranquility in your home, so the plumbers can work, but your pets will also be
at a safe and comfy place.
a medium to large closet, small patio or other extra space. If your home
renovation is only going to take place inside your home, then find a small
yard, patio or place for your pet to be outside. If you don’t have a yard or your home
renovation is going to take place outdoors, find a large enough closet or room
for your pet to stay indoors and just bare with them during the renovation
you happen to have a dog house or a crate, try using it to contain your pets
for a few days. Remember to visit it
often and to take your pet out when the plumbers have gone home for the
day. This will prevent your pets from
going into the work area and it will also prevent them from grabbing some of
the tools or parts that will be used throughout your home’s renovation.
Always remember to put some clean water and
fresh food for your pets, as this will help to calm them down, while they wait
for the plumbers to finish their job. It is really not that hard to find a safe and
comfy place for your pets while your home is being renovated, but you do have
to plan ahead.
