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.”

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.
