We love our pets. They cheer us up during a bad day and give us attention when we need it. However, their soft, cozy fur sometimes causes a bit of a problem. Getting rid of pet hair may be the problem of pet lovers and owners, but we’ve got some simple tips to keep your house and clothing pet-hair free.
Pets love to run around the house, and chances are if you have a carpet they will roll on it, leaving their fur behind. It is important to have a regular schedule for vacuuming. Use the included attachments of the vacuum to make your job easier.
Stick to hard floors
If you are just building a house or your house is carpeted, you might want to put your pets in a place tiled or a place with hard floors so they won’t come in contact with carpet and leave their fur behind. Making your pets stay and play on hard floors will make getting rid of pet hair easier.
Getting rid of pet hair can also be done by using damp cloth. If you run your vacuum on your appliances, there is a big chance that stubborn hair will not be removed right away. Running a damp cloth on your carpets and appliances might do the trick. Add a little baking soda to the mix to remove smell as well. You may also mix fabric softener as it helps make cloth surface smoother thus the hair will be easier to remove.
Velcro, rubber, tape, lint roller
Rubber gloves or a balloon can also help get rid of pet hair by rubbing it on the surface with pet hair. This will create a charge that will attract the hair to the balloon. You can also use Velcro. You may also keep a lint roller or tape to help remove pet hair on various surfaces.
Brush your pet’s fur
One sure solution in keeping your pet hair problems from escalating is regularly brushing your dog to get rid of loose hair. By doing this, you will be able to get rid of your pet’s hair right away and will not need to look for them all over your house. Brushing your pet’s hair will not only be beneficial to your pets, but will also save you a lot of time and effort when it’s time to clean.
Remember to keep your house and your pets clean so you won’t be hassled in always seeing pet hair everywhere.
