A recent article in the Express warns about how ‘Cleaning your home could be deadly for your cats and dogs’
In the article it goes on to explain how animals have been left with horrific burns after coming into contact with dangerous everyday cleaning agents.
“One pet dog has had to be put to sleep after suffering caustic burns to its paws, legs and mouth from laundry detergent, while a cat was left foaming when it licked a floor cleaned with disinfectant.”
One of the biggest household hazards and cause for concern are toilets treated with chemicals.
Rebecca Ashman, a PDSA vet warned that… “With many households doing their spring cleaning, it’s important to ensure products are safe to use around pets.
“Millions of us use bleach, oven cleaner, dishwasher tablets and laundry detergents all the time in the home but we need to realise how dangerous they can be to our pets.
“Products such as bleach and detergents are highly corrosive and cause permanent and even life-threatening damage to a pet’s skin or insides if swallowed.”
So take heed, and for more details about other hazards in your home and what precautions you should take, please read the rest of this article via this link…

One of the dirtiest D.i.y. jobs you can undertake is cleaning your chimney flue. That is why most people will employ a professional chimney sweep to do the job for them. However, you can do it yourself if you know what you’re doing and save yourself a bit of money.
A regular clean will ensure that your chimney will stay clean and efficient, but chimneys that are old and haven’t been cleaned in a long time can contain a huge amount of soot, so in these cases we recommend you get a professional in to do the job.
Once again fraudsters have been posing as window cleaners in order to con local residents out of money, this time in Huddersfield.
In a recent report published on the ITV news and their website, a man “got away with cash after tricking one resident in the Lockwood area”. Apparently the offence “came to light when the genuine window cleaner called asking for payment” which is hardly surprising, but why are residents so easily duped?
The report goes on to say that there have been similar incidents in the area and “police believe others may not yet have come to light”.
A description of the fraudster described him as probably being “in his twenties, 5ft 8ins tall, white and of average build”. Also “He has dark coloured short hair and stubble and wearing a dark coloured jacket and blue jeans”.
We advise all customers to make sure they know who their window cleaner is by sight, as well as their staff. If someone comes to your door and you don’t recognise them then ask for identification first if they request a payment. If in doubt, refuse payment until they can provide proper identification, or ask them for an address to send payment to. Better still, ask them if they have a website where you can pay your bill onlne. Or a bank account where you can transfer money too online. Most professional window cleaners these days can provide these payment options.
