As all pet owners can testify, a pet is both a blessing and a curse. And, the reason why I’m saying that is pet hair! If you have settled for a furry friend, chances are, you have gone through the hardships of removing unwanted (pet) hair, a struggle I believe quite difficult for the `beginners` in the field. And, because lately, I had to deal with this issue myself, I started surfing the web in search for the best strategy to have a hair-free home. As a result, after surfing the web and testing the suggestions found online, I have decided to put together this short list that contains what I consider to be the go-to guide to cleaning when living with a pet.
First things first, to be sure you don’t carry pet hair on your clothes when out of the house; I suggest you buy a couple of lint rollers and keep them around your home. Moreover, to make sure you don’t risk forgetting to use them before leaving, keep one near the exit door, as it will act as a reminder to give yourself the last touch up.
Secondly, a good idea is to invest in an electric broom. More easy to use and practical than the usual vacuum cleaner, this type of cord-free device is just what you need. Capable of aspirating unwanted hair and debris produced by pets, the gadget is ideal as it will not just blow the hair around but actually suck it. As a plus, the models equipped with a HEPA filter are also able of actually cleaning the air in the room, in a thorough fashion. If you want to buy such a cleaning device, here you can find more information.
Thirdly, any pet owner should reserve time to regularly clean the unwanted hair from the furniture. To remove this type of tricky debris, I suggest you mix up and spray water and your favorite fabric softener or any type of specialized cleaning solution on the furniture and gently wipe it off.
Last but not least, in order to avoid having your home filled with pet hair, you should take care of the pets themselves. Therefore, be sure to brush them at least two times a week and don’t forget to take them to the pet salon and get them a groom or be sure to give them a trim yourself when the hot season is approaching; less hair, less time spent cleaning it!
By following the suggestions I talked about, I am sure you will find living with your fairy friend not only easier but also more enjoyable. Anyways, I hope my tips and tricks will be of help. Let me know about how you deal with this issue and what solutions you found to be effective when dealing with pet hair.
