From dizziness to dog flu, asthma to allergies, the potential health effects caused by the physical space where you conduct your pet care business can ultimately impact the financial health of your business. A “sick” building can spread outbreaks of upper respiratory infections that can lead to sick animals, temporary closures, and long-term damage to your reputation. It can also negatively impact staff health and performance, from absenteeism to cognitive impairment. And all of that hits your financial bottom line.

In this session you will learn:

  • Where potential problems lurk: in the air, between cracked concrete floors, in rotting wood.
  • How the health of your building can impact you, your staff, and how you perform your jobs.
  • Specific steps you can take to create a healthy building, including how to choose products and equipment that are best for cleaning and disinfecting air, turf, indoor, and outdoor play areas.
  • Industry cleaning protocols that will deliver the results you are looking for.
