How To Rid Your Home of Pet Hair
I know there are a lot of people that wonder on a daily basis how to keep their homes free of pet hair. Well, luckily guys, I have the answer. Unless your pet is an outdoor pet, and it never comes into the house, it is impossible to keep your house rid and free of pet hair. That’s right, impossible. I said it. There is no magical unknown trick that keeps your home free of flying animal fur. There are a few things that can help cut down on the amount of pet hair and dander that your home would usually acquire.
The first of which is to if at all possible, keep your animals outside. They were made for the outdoors. They like it. They can run around and get exercise, interact with other animals they might see. Now I’m not saying if its 110 degrees outside with a high heat index, or there’s a blizzard occuring, then I would probably keep my pets inside. But if its nice outside and not pouring down rain, let them go outside.
Hire a cleaning company. One of the advantages to hiring a maid service is that we can help cut the amount of pet hair in your home in half, if not more. Did you know that there is a special way to get pet hair off of your fabric furniture? I do. I did it while I was cleaning houses. I do not have any pets so luckily I never had to do this in my own home. There is a stone that you can buy called a pet hair stone. It’s available at any pet store and possibly Walmart. I think, not quite sure but it should be. Its Walmart. We get all underneath your furniture, in those corners you may have forgotten about, around the table and chair legs where for some reason a lot of pet hair seems to accumulate.
Brush your pets. Brushing your dog(s) twice a week and your cat(s) once a day will help dramatically reduce the amount of pet hair in your home and on your furniture. I have heard of the furminator, a special type of brush for pets but not being a pet owner, I have not tried it so I cannot offer an opinion on it.
