General Cleaning Duties

Most cleaning supplies can be found in the food/litter room. The bathroom has a broom, dustpan, paper towels, etc., as does the room with the kennels. On days we are open to the public please do all of the following:

  • Sweep the lobby, lounge, and food/litter room. The dust mop works well for picking up fur and dust.
  • Vacuum the rugs (be sure the brush roll is engaged).
  • Wipe down wand toy handles, the arms of the chairs, door handles, and other high-touch surfaces with Clorox wipes.
  • Wipe down the blue tables using Simple Green.
  • Scoop all cat boxes.
  • Clean up spilled litter around pens, kennels, etc.
  • Use a lint roller to clean throw pillows, pads on benches.
  • Tidy up toys, shelves, furniture.
  • Twice a week, use the steam cleaner on the floors.
  • Once or twice a week, more often as needed, sprinkle baking soda over the cat litter.
  • Take out all of the trash every morning.
  • Large trash bags are on the bottom shelf where clean blankets and towels are stored.
  • Small bags for the trash near the Keurig are also on that bottom shelf.
  • Small trash bags are also kept in the bathroom. If you can’t find any or use the last one, extra rolls are on the same shelf as the large trash bags.
  • Extra paper towels and toilet paper are in the very back storage area. If you use the last of something please replace it or make note of it on the volunteer white board.
  • Rags for general cleaning are on the bottom of the metal shelves directly to your left as you enter the food/litter room.
