Why Hire a Pooper Scooper Company?
We love our dogs, but picking up after them is considered to be the most disliked household chore of all time. That’s where Scoop Troop comes in! We are a professional pet waste removal company that cleans hundreds of homes each week. After speaking with our clients as well as other professionals in the industry, here are the top 10 compelling reasons why you should hire a local pooper scooper company to clean your yard:
This is a big one! We all love things that help offer more convenience in our lives. Many people enjoy knowing there is a service they can dial to clean up after their pets. The best part is you don’t have to be home when your scoop technician arrives. We simply ask for easy access to your gate and we can handle the rest! We are also quick – usually in and out within 15 minutes so the yard won’t be occupied for long. Hiring a pooper scooper company will give you more time in the day so you can focus on your other important tasks or hobbies.
You’d be surprised how affordable a professional pooper scooper company is! This is not a service solely reserved for the wealthy. Our mission is to render services available for all, regardless of what your financial situation is. Most companies charge around the same price and with rates starting at $50 / month, everyone can enjoy the idea of not having to pick up dog poop ever again. Pricing is usually calculated by a few factors including the number of dogs, your location, and yard size. If you would like an instant quote, click here.
It’s Good For the Environment –
This one is often overlooked but critical to point out. If picking up dog poop is put off for too long, there is a large accumulation of waste in the yard. Remember, the average dog produces around 5.25 lbs of waste per week; that is a lot of landmines! The consequences of built-up poo could have a negative effect on the environment and local water supplies. When it rains, the waste is carried into our waterways and washed down the drain and into streams. Dog poop contains harmful bacteria, parasites, and high levels of phosphorus & nitrogen which have a negative effect on our water. In fact, dog poop is a leading cause of stormwater pollution. Dogs also have a diet that is rich in protein. The excess protein levels turn the poop acidic. This is why your grass dies if the poop is left for too long. By hiring a pooper scooper company to clean the waste weekly or bi-weekly, you are being proactive in preserving our healthy environment.
It Keeps Germs Out of Your Home
Not only is cleaning up dog poop safe for the environment, but it’s also safe for your home too! As mentioned above, dog poop carries bad bacteria and parasites including tapeworms, heartworms, hookworms, E.coli, and Salmonella. We have many clients who use our services because they are tired of poop being trekked into the house. Waste accumulates quickly, especially in smaller yards, and dogs will step in it and bring it into the home even after a week or two of not picking it up. Hiring a pooper scooper company to clean weekly/biweekly will help eliminate this problem so your home can remain a safe and fun environment for your children and yourself.
Life seems to be getting busier and busier. After a long week, the last thing you want to do on Saturday after doing laundry and cleaning up the house is to pick up stinky dog poop in the yard. Busy professionals who work long hours, single parents, college students, and families with newborn babies will benefit greatly from hiring a pooper scooper. From personal experience, scooping dog poop can easily get away from you. After a certain period of time, the thought of 100 piles in the backyard is overwhelming and it will never get done without help. Your investment in this service will free up extra time so you can spend it on doing the activities you love and enjoy.
You Will Have Access to Your Yard Again
This is the most obvious one, but you will have full access to your yard again! We’ve all experienced the feeling at one point in our lives, and it’s not very fun. We will provide you with the freedom of having your yard again. You can host family/friend gatherings, birthday parties, or even run around the yard just because you want to! The best part is most pooper scooper companies clean year-round! In the springtime, this also means getting started on other yard work or bringing out the family pool even sooner!
Your Mowing Company Might Not Service Your Yard
We collaborate with mowing companies in town because it’s an excellent partnership. Did you know that there are many lawn mowing companies that will not service your home if the poop is not cleaned up regularly? This is because it hinders their operations and slows the job down, as well as ruins their equipment. I recall a conversation with a service provider who was weed whacking and he accidentally hit dog poop and the waste splattered on his goggles, yuck! After that, he made the decision to not service a yard if the poop wasn’t picked up a day or two before the mowing. By hiring a pooper scooper company, you will ensure this isn’t an issue. Your mowing company will thank you as well!
Seniors or Individuals with Physical Limitations
Seniors and persons recovering from surgery or other procedures benefit greatly from hiring a pooper scooper company. With certain physical limitations or disabilities, it might be difficult if not impossible to clean up after your pets. This population is a large portion of our business and we have been credited for being a primary reason that allows them to keep their beloved pet.
Believe it or not, we are often credited for reducing the number of arguments in the household about this chore! Looking back, I remember fighting with my sister all of the time when we were kids about scooping poop and sometimes the yard didn’t get cleaned, even after we told our parents it was done! With our service, there won’t be any more fighting about who did it last or whose turn it is to scoop the poop this week. It will also be a full and thorough cleanup each visit – this way, you can run around the yard with confidence knowing the job was done correctly.
Your Neighbors Appreciate It
In the fall and winter, the smell isn’t too bad. But let’s face it, as the weather gets hotter and summer arrives, yards are starting to stink all over the neighborhood. Believe us, your neighbors can smell it too! A majority of neighborhood complaints (such as HOA) come from this smelly issue. Maintaining positive relationships with your neighbors is important. If you find that you are too busy to pick up dog poop frequently and would like to express your appreciation, hiring a pooper scooper company is a great way to show your neighbors you are thinking of them!
