Pet hair all over the house for pet owners is a constant battle. We love our furry friends, but making sure that our house doesn’t suffer as a result can be a challenge. Having the best maid service in town can be a huge help in keeping our houses fur-free, but there are still several tricks you can use to help keep your home clean.
Dust Thoroughly and Often
Using the right tools to dust your living spaces and bedrooms can go a long way in creating a cleaner, pet-hair free environment. Sometimes, pet hair travels and floats through the air much like dust, and it settles on other objects, even the spaces where your pets can’t get to. Be mindful of these areas, corners, nooks, and surfaces. Dust them frequently and dust them well so that pet hair is brought to the floor where it can be vacuumed or swept up. If the hair doesn’t like to come off and still clings to the shelves or the sides of furniture, using micro fibre clothes can help pull it off completely.
Vacuum your floors and the furniture every other day if you find that it really helps. Frequently vacuuming so that the pet hair doesn’t settle too deeply into the carpet is important as well. Get under tables, desks, and move the big furniture once every blue moon so that the pet hair doesn’t collect for too long on the carpet in those spaces.
Utilise Vacuum Attachments
Vacuum your cloth furniture, such as couches, chairs, recliners etc. Keeping the fur off of these items makes an impact on the cleanliness of your home. But be sure to fully utilise your vacuum’s attachments to do so. Use them to get the tight edge of the baseboards, to pull fur out of the cloth
Sweep and Mop Thoroughly
If you have hard floors, regularly mopping and sweeping them is similarly as important as vacuuming the carpet. Throughly sweep the floors several times (if needed), getting up all the fur you possibly can. Sometimes it’s helpful to attach a micro fibre cloth to the mop head, running it flat against the floor, and using it to pick up the last stray bits of pet hair the broom might have missed. After a detailed sweep, mop the floors to get them shining. It will probably pick up even more pet fur. Mopping a second time, if it looks as if your floor needs it, will be the final touch to have fur-free floors!
Removing pet hair from your home is a cinch with these nifty little tricks. Practicing them regularly and making them frequent, weekly habits can do wonders for your home!
