Tips
Clean up is best accomplished by vacuuming, not wiping floors
Dry Swiffer works well to clean dust off walls We recommend that, for families with dogs:

 

• The dogs stay off floors for 7 days to ensure that floors will properly cure
• Have the dog's nails trimmed

• All furniture should be picked up and placed into position. Do not slide furniture into position, even    with rugs or towels underneath.
