Having a pet at home can bring joy and love to your family. But having a cat or a dog running around your house can leave a lot of hair trapped in the carpets, beds, and sofas, which can be a nightmare to clean. But it is important to have this cleaned up for hygienic reasons as well as medical reasons as this could trigger an allergic reaction. What is the best way to clean pet hair?
Groom the pet
Bathe, brush and keep him well groomed. This way the excess hair will be removed during bathing and brushing which means less hair will be shed around the house.
Removing hair from carpets
Short hair on the carpet will not be removed by the vacuum cleaner as they stick to the carpet. Use a rubber broom or a thick bristle brush to scrub the carpet to loosen the hair before vacuuming.
Wear a wet glove and run it across the surface, the hair will stick to the glove.
Apply fabric softener
A fabric softener sheet can be used to pick up pet hair. Spray the surface with a mixture of fabric softener and water to “prep” the area first.
