Cats and dogs lose their fur basically twice a year – during spring and autumn. During this time not only sofas, armchairs, rugs, carpets but also clothes of the household members look like they have grown fur. Our household cleaning tips and ddvice on how to get rid of this annoying problem and quickly clean the animal hair, is outlined below.
Cleaning the carpets of animal hair
The fur on the carpets is best removed using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. Some professional vacuum cleaners are very expensive and their price can reach 2000 Pounds. Those vacuum cleaners have an anti-allergenic filter in them and also often have a carpet shampooing option.
Cheaper vacuum cleaners are bag-less with a cyclone function (for example Dyson). This type of vacuum has special brushes allowing very easy removal of animal hair from any surface.
Cheaper methods are brushing the carpet with a brush or velour mop which is dipped in antistatic products. You can also collect the hair with a damp, rubber glove or a sponge. You can also use sticky tape on your hand to collect the hair.
Removing fur from the furniture
A soft brush that you can put on the end of a vacuum cleaner will allow you to get rid of the hair from wooden furniture. You can also use a damp microfiber cloth. After cleaning it is worth spraying the furniture with a product that minimizes the settlement of dust.
It is important to brush your cat or dog regularly.
To avoid fur-balls getting stuck in the sofa, armchairs or the ones that move around the house when the wind blows – like tumble weed – it is worth brushing your pet regularly. This procedure can be done on the balcony, patio, garden terrace or on a walk. This way we will avoid a crazy amount of cleaning.
