Please be aware that this introductory free service is available only in select areas that we service.

Locked Property

If the Smart Scoops technician is unable to access the designated yard space due to a locked gate with an unknown lock, and cannot otherwise access a client’s property, we will reach out promptly to you via knocking on the front door, ringing the doorbell, text, phone and email to gain access to the property or area. If we are unable to reach you, service will be skipped and you will be charged for the visit. 

Inclement weather

In the event of adverse or severe weather conditions, Smart Scoops reserves the right to exercise caution by either postponing or skipping services. Timely notifications via door, text and phone call will be sent to clients, and necessary adjustments will be made accordingly.

If you require immediate cleaning before your next scheduled visit, please contact us, and we will make every effort to accommodate your request.

Animal Presence

Although our technicians appreciate your pets, we require that no pets be in the yard during our scooping process. In the event that our assigned Smart Scoops technician encounters an animal in the designated yard area, we will promptly leave the premises and contact you via door knocking, door bell, text, and phone call. If the technician is unable to reach you, the service scheduled for the selected day will be skipped.

Overgrown Grass, Leaves and Debris

We strive to provide the utmost care in keeping your yard clean. We understand that maintaining a pristine yard can be a demanding task, and it may not always be in optimal condition. We acknowledge that locating pet waste can be challenging amidst tall grass, leaves and/or debris. If any waste is missed during our visit due to tall grass, leaves and/or debris, rest assured that we will address it promptly on our next scheduled maintenance visit. In cases where we are unable to provide service due to overgrown grass, leaves, or excessive debris, our technician will notify you promptly via text and a physical card left on your door. 

Missed Piles

If any piles are overlooked during the scheduled service, it is the client’s responsibility to promptly notify Smart Scoops within 12 hours of scheduled service with a picture of the pile. In cases where the grass is not overgrown, and there are no excessive leaves or debris, a complementary rescoop will be conducted on Fridays. This will ensure an uninterrupted weekend without any missed piles.

Scoop & Haul

As part of the Smart Scoops Scoop & Haul services, our team will perform a thorough assessment of your property to effectively remove pet waste. We will efficiently transport the waste to designated facilities, ensuring it does not go into your trash bins.

If the Smart Scoops team discovers that there are more than 5 dogs on the property, additional fees will apply. 

Yard sanitization

The Smart Scoops team utilizes our state-of-the-art Smart Sprayer™ technology to apply a sanitizing solution. This solution deeply permeates your yard, effectively neutralizing odor-causing bacteria and eradicating a wide range of viruses, bacteria, and fungi, including influenza and canine parvovirus. Thorough sanitation targets over 50 different viruses. Pets and animals are safe to access the property after the sanitizing solution has thoroughly dried. Smart Scoops cannot be held responsible for the contraction or presence of viruses, bacteria, or fungi in pets or on properties.

Yard deodorization

Grass repair

Pet urine contains high levels of nitrogen, which can be detrimental to grass, resulting in yellowing or burnt patches. Smart Scoops’ grass repair service offers an effective solution by utilizing an eco-friendly tinting agent to camouflage the discolored areas and prevent unsightly spots. This long-lasting grass repair treatment is designed to last up to 12 weeks and make grass appear vibrant and green. The grass repair does not contain any fertilizers.

Dog repellent

Smart Scoops Dog Repellent service is specifically designed to discourage animals from using or defecating on the clients’ property. Our effective dog repellent solution is carefully applied to a two-foot interior area of pedestrian sidewalks or roadways. Please note that it may take some time for the repellent to completely deter animals from the treated areas, as they may attempt to return. However, with consistent use of our product, animals will learn to avoid these treated areas over time. Smart Scoops cannot be held liable for any animals that still utilize or defecate in areas where our dog repellent has been applied.

Commercial Dog Runs

Commercial dog runs are fenced in areas specifically in commercial and community areas for visitors to provide a space for their pets to relieve themselves, exercise and play.
