How to Survive the Pet Shedding Season

With the warmer weather that the spring brings us, we are all shedding layers and coats of… clothes or fur. If you live with a pet, you can probably already feel this on your skin. And the carpet. And the furniture. And clothes.

So how can you handle all this hair around your house, alongside with the regular house cleaning, plus the big spring cleaning? You probably won’t be able to get rid of all the hair, but there are a few things that might help you reduce the amount of it around your house to a manageable degree.
Here are a few tips from cleaning pros from Oasis Natural Cleaning that should make your life less fuzzy.

Make Lint Rollers Your Best Friends

After your pet’s, of course. These handy things can be lifesavers when it comes to exceeding shedding of your furry companions. They really practical, super affordable and super-efficient when it comes to cleaning your furniture and clothes from the pet hair.

Make a stock in order to be sure you never run out of them. Also, keep them at hand, for example, under the couch. Use them to take care of the hair piles regularly and prevent them from accumulating too much. You can have one in your bag, just in case, the natural light reveals some secret souvenirs your beloved pet endowed you with.

A wet sponge is a good alternative for cleaning furniture as well, so make sure you have enough of them in your house. Rubber gloves can also be useful in this matter, although they’re not suitable for all types of furniture.

Get Furniture Covers

To save your lovely upholstered sofa from being swallowed by your pet’s hair, get some nice covers which are easy to clean and maintain. You can use lint rollers as well and wash them regularly. This combination should help to keep them hair-free.

Changing and washing the covers is certainly much simpler than cleaning and rubbing the furniture every day. Deep house cleaning can be expensive and time-consuming, so make sure you don’t have to do it too often. Even if you don’t want to use the covers all the time, it can be a convenient solution if you have unexpected guests coming over. So make sure you always have a nice and clean cover at hand.

Clean Your Carpet Properly

There are three steps which will help you to keep your carpet as clean as possible. Of course, they are the most efficient when combined, but even if you use them separately, they will still have a visible effect.

You should first dampen your carpet a bit (not too much), and then use a brush to gather all the hair. After this, vacuum the carpet to get the rest of the hair that might have remained hidden in deeper layers.

Finally, to be absolutely sure you got them all, use a squeegee over your carpet. You don’t have to do the whole “procedure” every time, but make sure you do at least one of these things regularly.

Brush That Pet

Whichever furry pet you might have, you should brush them regularly. Do it on the terrace, or in the yard, somewhere where all the hair can run free without ending up on your furniture, clothes or any other part of your house.

This way, you will get rid of all the hair that had already fallen off and which would have eventually ended up on your carpet or elsewhere in your home. Take the time to find the right brush which will at the same time be efficient in removing the hair, but which also be pleasant for your furry friend, as in order to do anything, you’ll have to get your pet to cooperate as well.
