Our painters at Sharper Impressions love pets. We want yours to be safe while we are hard at work repainting your home’s interior. Here are a few tips to prevent any mishaps or health problems when you have your home’s interior repainted.
There are a few things to consider for hamsters, guinea pigs, cats, dogs and other furry friends when Sharper Impressions is working in your home. Give them a vacation. Take them to a friend’s house or their favorite kennel for a day or two three. Since animals’ noses are much more sensitive than human noses, the paint fumes may bother them. Their bodies are smaller and they may feel the stronger effects from the fresh paint as it dries. We do use low-VOC paints, but that is not enough for our small furry friends.
Fish and Reptiles
Pets in tanks, such as fish and reptiles, should be moved to another portion of the house in a well-ventilated area and have the tank covered with breathable fabric for extra precaution. When Sharper Impressions is painting the entire house, consider giving your pets in tanks a vacation, too.
If you are unsure, ask your local veterinary professional for advice on your particular pet.
