All Clean Air Lawn Care services are 100% pet-friendly and safe for dogs, cats, kids and wildlife. We use a pet-safe fertilizer and soil builder that increase the health of grass without harming the health of the people and pets who enjoy it. Clean Air Lawn Care franchises make their communities healthier, safer places by providing customers with lush, green lawns that don’t put pets at risk.
Clean Air Lawn Care offers the best of both worlds — a healthy lawn and a healthy pet.
Why use pet-friendly lawn products? The science overwhelming tells us that non-organic, synthetic lawn chemicals aren’t safe for pets. Conventional lawn care companies are using harsh chemicals that put pets, children and wildlife at risk. They put the health of communities at risk every time they spray a lawn. The health of animals, people and communities is of the utmost importance to Clean Air Lawn Care owners and employees; that’s why we only use pet-friendly lawn care products.
Providing effective, organic lawn care that’s also pet friendly is a great source of pride for Clean Air Lawn Care owners.

We hear a lot of stories about pets and wildlife being harmed after exposure to lawn chemicals. One of the many reasons why more and more customers look to us for lawn care is their increased understanding of how harmful conventional lawn fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides actually are. Homeowners come to us because they know they can trust that they are getting organic, pet-friendly lawn care that is safe and effective.
On top of the many anecdotes, there are scientific studies that have found a direct link between lawn care chemicals and the deteriorated health of pets. Studies published in 2012 and 1991 both found a significant link between lawn chemicals and cancer in dogs. In fact, dogs with malignant cancer were 70% more likely to be from homes where owners used chemical insecticides. Both studies came to the conclusion that the use of conventional lawn care chemicals is likely to increase the risk of Canine malignant lymphoma.
A study published in 2013 showed that herbicides can be detected in dog’s urine after lawn treatment, proving that the chemicals do make their way into pets’ systems after they are used on the lawn. The appearance of these harmful chemicals in dogs’ urine explains why exposure to herbicide-treated lawns is known to be associated with higher bladder cancer risk in dogs. The information is clear — pesticides and pets aren’t a safe combination. Conventional lawn chemicals have been proven time and time again to be harmful to pets.
We know it’s hard to think about, but it’s important to consider the harm these chemicals cause children, as well. Clean Air Lawn Care isn’t just a solid business choice for green entrepreneurs. It’s a social and ethical choice for family members.
