As soon as a rented kennel is returned to our facilities, it is moved to our cleaning and disinfection room where our specialized staff prepares it for a new customer. The cleaning and disinfection process consists of 3 phases.
Phase 1: OUTSIDE SOAP AND BRUSH.
During the first phase, the kennel is brushed and cleaned with soap. The soap kills any insects that might still be residing in the kennel as a result of the previous animal’s use.
Phase 2: RINSE AND DISINFECTION.
Once the first phase is finished, the soap is rinsed off with high pressure hot water (158º Farenheit) and osmotized water.
Once the kennel is dry, a quaternary ammonium is applied. The quaternary ammonium is a bactericide, fungicide and virucide with a high cleaning, disinfectant power which is harmless to the pet. This eliminates any doubt that any pathogens remain in the kennel and prepares the kennel for the last phase of the cleaning and disinfection process.
Phase 3: CHECKING AND CERTIFICATION.
In the last phase the kennel is thoroughly checked over.
If everything is OK, the kennel is certified as ready and a health certification sticker is placed on it that displays the time and extent of the disinfection process.
