Winter Kennel Cleaning Tips: Dealing with Mud and Snow

Winter can be a challenging time for pet owners, especially those running kennels or pet resorts. Mud and snow can create a mess in kennels, leading to unpleasant odors and unsightly stains. To keep your facility clean and welcoming, here are some winter kennel cleaning tips, featuring two powerful products: OdorPet Concentrate and SteriCide.

1. Preventative Measures:

Before the winter season hits, consider implementing preventative measures. Place durable mats or rugs at entry points to trap mud and snow before pets enter the kennel area. This can significantly reduce the amount of dirt and moisture brought indoors.

2. Regular Cleaning Schedule:

Establish a regular cleaning schedule to stay on top of winter-related messes. Daily sweeping and mopping can prevent the accumulation of mud and snow, maintaining a clean and hygienic environment for both pets and staff.

3. OdorPet Concentrate:

Invest in a powerful cleaning solution like OdorPet Concentrate to tackle stubborn stains and unpleasant odors. This industrial strength stain and pet odor eliminator is perfect for use in kennels. Whether you need to refill spray bottles, mix it in mopping buckets, or use it in a professional carpet cleaning machine, OdorPet Concentrate's bio-active formula breaks down odor-causing debris into harmless CO2 and water.

4. Carpet and Floor Maintenance:

For kennels with heavy foot traffic, especially during winter, regular carpet and floor maintenance is crucial. Use OdorPet Concentrate in your carpet cleaning machine to ensure a thorough clean. This commercial-grade carpet shampoo works on various surfaces, including hardwood and linoleum.

The Karcher BR 35/12 Bp serves as a practical choice for maintaining cleanliness on kennel floors, especially during the winter season. This compact and lightweight scrubber dryer, powered by batteries, effectively prevents slipping and ensures that floors are promptly dry after cleaning. Its portable nature, being battery-powered, eliminates the risk of tripping over power cables. Featuring a roller brush head and innovative KART technology (Karcher Advanced Response Technology), it boasts a 200-degree rotatable capability in both directions and a generous 14-inch working width.

5. SteriCide for Disinfection & Sterilization:

SteriCide is an excellent solution for maintaining a sanitary environment in kennels. This EPA registered hard surface sterilizer serves multiple purposes, acting as a cleaner, veterinary disinfectant, deodorizer, fungicide, and sporicidal sterilant. Use SteriCide on non-porous surfaces to elevate your sanitation program to professional levels, ensuring the well-being of the pets in your care.

6. Deep Cleaning Periodically:

In addition to daily maintenance, schedule deep cleaning sessions periodically using products such as the Orange Degreaser. The potent citrus components in the robust Orange Degreaser effectively penetrate and eliminate tough grease, grime, and dirt on equipment, machinery, walls, and floors. Also include thorough disinfection of surfaces using SteriCide and applying OdorPet Concentrate to eliminate any lingering odors. Deep cleaning helps prevent the buildup of bacteria and keeps your kennel smelling fresh.

7. Staff Training:

Ensure that your staff is trained on the proper use of cleaning products. This includes dilution ratios, application methods, and safety precautions. A well-trained team is essential for effective kennel maintenance, especially during challenging seasons.

By following these winter kennel cleaning tips and incorporating OdorPet Concentrate and SteriCide into your cleaning routine, you can create a clean, safe, and welcoming environment for both pets and their owners.
