My House Always Looks Like This

The holidays mean COMPANY IS COMING! I know I’m not alone when I share this scenario – it’s a regular Saturday morning and you’ve decided to be super-productive. You throw in a load of laundry, tidy up the kitchen and turn on the dishwasher, and then decide that the house could use a good vacuuming. Your kids wander into the room and ask, “Who’s coming over?”

True, the quick clean and tidy always happens before guests arrive because we want our friends and family to actually believe that our households always look as clean as they do when they walk in the door. I don’t know why we all do this – we all have messy houses and floors that could use cleaning on any given day – but we like to present a clean and tidy space for guests because that’s, I suppose, the polite thing to do. I have to deal with my kid’s socks in the middle of the floor, my guests shouldn’t have to.

With that in mind, I wanted to share another opportunity for my readers to win a Hoover Air Steerable Pet Upright Vacuum! This product has been used in our household since the day after it showed up on my doorstep thanks to my partnership with Hoover this year. We have a labradoodle who, thankfully, doesn’t shed very much but a dog is a dog and yes there’s still fur. We also have a household with myself and daughters who are blessed with thick locks and unfortunately the hair we shed ends up in our carpet and floors too (just ask my husband!)

The full review I did in September can be found here, but to remind you of this product’s awesome features, here are some of my favorites:

– AllergenBlock Technology – Prevents *97% of pet dander, dirt, dust, and pollen particles** from re-entering the air
– WindTunnelยฎ 3 Technology – Creates three channels of suction to lift and remove surface debris and deeply embedded dirt
– Steerable Technology – Maneuvers around furniture, corners, and in tight spaces with ease
– HEPA Media Filter – Traps 99.97% of dirt, dust, and pollens down to 0.3 microns
– Lightweight – Weighs only 14 lbs with wand and tools
– Multi-Floor Cleaning – Transitions from carpet to hard floors with ease

We particularly like how steerable this vaccuum is – it’s easy to maneuver into corners and around furniture, and I also like how it’s the simple push of a button to take the vacuum from carpet to hardwood flooring. It’s also light enough at 14lbs for my kids to use as well because yes, when company’s coming we need all hands on deck!
