Create a No-Pet-Hair Furniture Zone

As pet owners, we love our furry creatures and the company and comfort they bring to us. But with that is one challenge we often face: Dealing with pet hair on our furniture. If you’re tired of constantly battling pet hair on your sofa, loveseat, chairs, or anything that is made of cloth, here are some effective strategies to keep your furniture looking clean and pet-hair-free.

Vacuum for the Deepest Clean
The most basic and efficient method to removing pet hair from your furniture is by thorough, detailed vacuuming. Regular vacuuming using an upholstery brush attachment can remove loose pet hair and also embedded dander, which is what causes allergic reactions. If you don’t have the proper attachment, consider investing in a universal attachment set with an upholstery brush and a crevice tool for those hard-to-reach areas. There are many small, hand-held devices that are perfect for this.

Use Hair Removal Tools
Turn to handy tools like sticky rollers and furniture brushes between vacuuming sessions. Oversized sticky rollers or those with extendable handles are particularly effective on upholstered furniture, covering more surface area with each pass.

Common Household Items
You don’t always need specialty tools to combat pet hair. Everyday household items can be just as effective. A straightforward method is to put on a rubber glove, dampen it, and run your hand over the sofa’s surface, causing the hair to ball up for easy pickup and disposal.


Groom Your Pets
Prevention is a great way to keep your furniture pet hair-free. Regularly groom your pet with guidance from your vet or groomer to reduce shedding and maintain a healthy coat. Grooming gloves, which help reduce shedding and straighten hair follicles, can effectively remove pet hair from your couch.

Now what?
Vacuuming, hair removal tools, everyday household items, textile preparation, and regular grooming of your furry companion can make all the difference in keeping your furniture fresh and comfortable for you and your pets. But there’s more! Don’t forget that removing pet hair is just part of maintaining your furniture. Having your furniture professionally cleaned on a regular basis is recommended. Do the right thing and call your favorite cleaning company now for an appointment. After all, it pays to call a pro!
