Fun Fact About Pet Hair

Not long ago, you might have learned that static electricity makes pet hair stick to your carpet fibers like a magnet. When your pets run around the house and roll around on the furniture, their fur creates static electricity. This makes the hair stick to fabrics, carpets, and furniture very strongly. Some pets shed more than 20 grams of fur every day. That's why we sometimes feel like we're swimming in fur all the time. Thankfully, there are good ways to handle this problem.

Things You Can Do Every Day To Get Rid Of Pet Hair

Daily Grooming

The best and most effective way to keep pet hair off of your carpets is to brush your dogs often. This will not only stop them from shedding, but it will also help you bond with your pet.

Pet Bedding Care

If your pet's bed gets too full of hair, it will probably end up on the ground as it jumps and runs around the house. By washing their clothes often, you can help stop the hair from spreading.

Cover Pet-Friendly Areas

Put down covers that can be washed over their favorite places to relax, like chairs, pet beds, and your favorite chair. It's much easier to wash a blanket than to deep clean the carpets every day.

Healthy Diet

A well-balanced diet is important for keeping your pet's hair in good shape and reducing the amount of fur it sheds daily.

Carpet Preparation For Hair Removal

Before you use deeper cleaning methods, you need to make sure your carpet is ready by doing these important things:

  • Vacuum every day: pet hair builds up quickly, so using a vacuum with a pet hair attachment every day is important to get rid of surface hair. Make sure to focus on areas with a lot of foot traffic and the places where your pet likes to hang out.
  • Check your vacuum: make sure the sucking power and cleaning performance are at their best by regularly cleaning the vacuum filters and emptying the dust bin.
  • Take out stuck hair: if pet hair is really stuck in the carpet, you might need special tools, like a carpet brush, to remove it before you clean.
  • Rubber gloves are a good way to get rid of pet hair. When you rub a wet rubber glove across the carpet - this makes it easier to gather the hair into clumps for quick collection.
  • Carpet rake: this tool, which looks like a rake, does a great job of removing pet hair from deep-down carpet fibers.
  • Lint rollers are great for cleaning low-pile carpets and furniture, and they're because they pick up hair well.
  • Pet hair brush: use a rubber brush for delicate edges. A bristle brush is better for tougher areas that need a stronger touch to free hair.

Interesting Fact: Cats and Dogs Have Different Kinds of Hair

Did you know that cat and dog fur have very different textures and sheds in very different ways? Most cat fur is short and silky, which makes it more likely to stick to clothes and fabrics. On the other hand, dogs' fur has different textures, so cleaning them often requires different tools and methods.
