Getting Ready for the New Baby: Pet Hair Removal

It can be pretty daunting to think of all the things to cross off the list before the arrival of your family’s newest member. Preparing the house for the arrival of a baby is stressful enough - when it comes to preparing the house when there are pets already present in it, the challenges are even more in number.

Because the baby may leave you lacking the time to clean your house for a while after its arrival, it’s especially important to do a thorough deep clean before the child actually gets home, and while you still have the energy to clean. For pet owners, cleaning up all their pet’s hair can present a particularly hefty chore. However, with the right household cleaning products, pet hair removal can be a simple task and canleave you with plenty of time for other chores. To help with this, we will break down a couple of essential household cleaning products to rid your home of pet hair and leave your baby’s home sparkling.

Vacuum regularly to prevent pet hair and associated allergens from building up and becoming harder to remove from fabric upholstery, carpeting and flooring.
