How to clean a grooming table?

Have you just bought a grooming table? This is an excellent idea as this stable support will help you to trim your dog’s hair, but also to cut his nails or simply to wash his ears.

If you don’t take care of it, it will quickly get dirty. Here are some tips to keep it clean.

Disinfect the grooming table regularly

If you only use the grooming table for your dog or a few pets you own, you don’t need to clean the table every night like a real grooming salon does.

It is recommended that you do it at least once a month. Get a product like Saniterpen disinfectant. It helps to eliminate bacteria.


If you only take the grooming table out two or three times a year, when you cut your dog’s hair, disinfect it before putting the dog on it.

This step is very important, because no matter if you follow the next recommendations, possible bacteria or insects like fleas are the worst enemies that a grooming table can have.

Removing hair from the grooming table

Avoid storing your table with lots of hair on it. As soon as you’re done grooming your pooch, grab a brush and knock all the hair off the floor. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that it will stick to the table, making it difficult to clean. Then just vacuum or sweep the floor to remove them.

Handheld vacuums are not always very effective at removing hair from the grooming table. Indeed, the floor of these accessories is made to prevent the pet from slipping. The small spikes hold the hair and the vacuum cleaner may not be able to pick it all up. The brush, by going into the nooks and crannies, is more efficient. On the other hand, keep your vacuum cleaner to clean hair nests like sheets or the sofa.

Pay attention to storage

Taking an interest in table maintenance is a good idea, but don’t focus solely on the “after use”. Store your table in a clean place so that dirt doesn’t get on it. Too many owners just put it in the basement or garage, where the tables end up completely dirty.

I asked my home groomer how she did it. She kept the cardboard box from the grooming table and puts it away whenever she is not working for several days.


It’s not just the grooming table!

Still on this advice, she pointed to the other accessories related to grooming the pet. It is not necessary to focus on the support of the table. For example, the stand is a real nest of microbes. It is important to use disinfectant on this part.

The maintenance must also take into account the towel used to dry the dog after its bath, the accessories (scissors, clippers, clipper …), the attachment to hold the animal …
