Say Goodbye to Pet Hair: Tips for Keeping Your Home Clean

Tricks and Ideas for Eliminating, Dealing with, and Preventing Pet Hair Build-up

We all love our furry friends, but let's face it, cleaning up after them can be a real hassle. One of the biggest challenges we face is dealing with pet hair in our homes. As a residential cleaning company, we've seen our fair share of pet hair, and we've picked up a few tricks along the way. So, sit back, relax, and let us share some of our ideas for eliminating pet hair in your home.

  1. Invest in a good quality vacuum cleaner: This is a no-brainer, but it's worth mentioning. A vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter and powerful suction is your best bet for getting rid of pet hair. Make sure to vacuum all surfaces including carpets, rugs, furniture, and even your pet's bed.

  2. Use a rubber glove: Yes, you read that right. A rubber glove can be a great tool for removing pet hair from furniture and fabrics. Simply put on a rubber glove and rub your hand over the surface to collect the hair. You can also wet the glove for better results.

  3. Use a lint roller: Lint rollers are great for removing pet hair from clothing, but did you know they can also be used on furniture and even car seats? Keep a few lint rollers around the house for quick clean-ups.

  4. Groom your pet regularly: Regular grooming not only helps reduce shedding but also promotes healthy skin and coat. Brush your pet's fur daily to remove loose hair and prevent it from ending up on your floors and furniture.

  5. Use a damp mop: A wet mop is an excellent tool for picking up pet hair that vacuum cleaners and brooms can miss. Simply dampen the mop and run it over hard floors to collect pet hair.

  6. Clean air filters regularly: Pet hair and dander can accumulate in air filters, causing them to clog and reduce the effectiveness of your HVAC system. Make sure to clean or replace your air filters regularly to improve indoor air quality.

These are just a few of our tips for eliminating pet hair in your home. Remember, a little bit of prevention goes a long way. Grooming your pet regularly and keeping up with cleaning can prevent pet hair build-up and allow you to enjoy a cleaner home.
