Cleaning Preparing For Baby By Cleaning Up After Your Dog

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. When it comes to preparing the house for those who are also pet owners, there are a few extra tasks to tack onto that checklist.

Because your newborn baby may leave you lacking the time to clean your house for a while, it’s especially important to do a thorough deep clean before his / her arrival, 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—leaving you 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 new home sparkling.

To start, you should have a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Arresting. These filters remove a very high percentage of airborne pollutants[1], resulting in less pet dander floating around in your home. While the effects of pet allergens on young children is still being debated, it is most likely a better choice to play it safe by using these filters. Vacuum regularly to prevent pet hair and associated allergens from building up and becoming harder to remove from fabric upholstery, carpeting and flooring. 

To remove some allergens on hard, non-porous surfaces, check out Dettol®Antibacterial Wipes. Any pet owner knows how pet hair can float around and appear everywhere in the house. Use our dual action wipes to scrub these areas clean, killing 99.9%[2] of bacteria and viruses to help keep your home shining and your new baby breathing easy.
