ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Is the house destroyed? Is Fido to blame? The nation’s leading property maintenance, repair and improvement franchise, Mr. Handyman, a Neighborly company, celebrates National Pet Month this May with the launch of “My ‘Pet’ Peeves” photo contest.
To enter the “My ‘Pet’ Peeves” photo contest, visit: https://mrhandyman.wishpond.com/mypetpeeves and submit a photo of a pet’s yard damage, annihilated shoes, in-home destruction or just plain naughty behavior by Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. CT. Mr. Handyman will reward five lucky winners with a $250 PetSmart gift card to pamper and care for their pets.
“While we all love our pets, there are times when our companions make an absolute mess of our space,” said Mr. Handyman President J.B. Sassano. “Our professional Mr. Handyman technicians have helped hundreds of homeowners install pet doors, repair drywall and replace trim and screens, but no matter what kind of havoc pets have wreaked, their owners love them regardless. During National Pet Month, we’re happy to let pet owners everywhere know they are not alone by sharing in each other’s pet antics.”
Additionally, Mr. Handyman offers useful tips for pet owners to remedy common pet problems:
- Repair Chewed Drywall: To fix drywall that may have been gnawed at by a puppy or anxious dog, scrape loose debris from holes or dents and cover with fast-drying spackle. Let dry for at least 24 hours, and conceal repairs with a bit of touch-up paint. While small bite holes are easy to camouflage, years of covering damage can eventually lead to uneven drywall.
- Safeguard Wood: Wood is often a target for pets who chew or scratch. The easiest protection plan is to add plastic sheeting or PVC tubing around table and chair legs to prevent claw and bite marks. Save doors by adding clear plastic sheeting.
