Cleaning Up Pet Hair From Your Home
Studies have shown that more than 65% of households in the US have a pet. Of those households, 63.4 million of them own at least one dog. They’re cute, cuddly, and add a lot of character to our family, but they also add a lot of dog hair to our house, belongings, and clothing! Even if your dog is a light shedding breed rather than a heavy shedding breed, you are still likely to sometimes struggle with unwanted dog hair. Here are a few tips on how to manage the overall shedding and remove the aftermath from your home.
1. Bathe Your Dog Regularly
Bathing your dog regularly will not only control their odor, but it will also remove the excess hairs that have built up in their coat. If your dog is a light shedder, once a month should do the trick! If they are a heavy shedder, twice a month may be a better course of action.
2. Cleaning Dog Hair Off of Your Clothing
Lint rollers are a great tool to have around when you need to remove hair off of your clothing. Try keeping one right by your front door for convenient access before leaving the house! If you don’t have a lint roller, wrapping some tape around your fingers with the sticky side up can serve the same purpose.
3. Cleaning Dog Hair Off of Your Floors
Regularly sweeping hardwood floors and routine vacuuming can help with pet hair around the house. A microfiber dry mop or a rubber broom used on a hardwood floor can help gather up loose hairs. Not only does routine vacuuming keep your rugs clean of pet hair, it also can pick up any fleas, flea eggs, or other dirt/debris your pets may bring into the house. Moving furniture such as sofas, tables, and beds is a good idea to ensure any hairs that blew underneath get cleaned up.
4. Cleaning it Off of The Furniture
A life hack for getting hair off of your furniture? Use rubber gloves! Just lightly run the rubber gloved hand over the furniture and the hairs will naturally cling to it. For wooden furniture, such as a table or desk, using a lightly dampened cloth will do the trick.
Follow these tips to keep dog hair under control so you can focus on the parts of dog ownership that bring you and your dog more joy. Hiring a professional cleaner to routinely deep clean your home from the mess our pets leave behind can take a lot of the work off of you, so you can enjoy the little moments with your special friend!
