How to Get Rid of Pet Hair Like a Pro

There's quite nothing like the unconditional love and unwavering loyalty of a pet. But having a furry companion comes with one challenge - pet hair! You will find it everywhere: on the floor, on carpets, on clothes, and even in the car. 

Are you a pet owner? Don't worry; NJ's #1 residential cleaning service provides these tried and trusted hacks to help you get rid of pet hair like a pro! 

Pet hair: the challenges

If there's one thing you must have noticed about pet hair, it is that it has a talent for getting everywhere, even your freshly home-cooked dinner! 

That's because your furry friends regularly shed their coats (heavy sheddings in spring and fall). Also, pet hair is lightweight, making it easy to get into nooks and crannies in the home. 

Pet hair can be more than just unsightly; it detracts from the beauty of your home. Pet hair can also trigger allergic reactions, making it crucial to keep your environment as hair-free as possible for the comfort and health of everyone in the household.

How to get rid of pet hair like a pro

Start with the source 

How do you reduce all that shedding all over the house? The first thing to do is begin with your pet by grooming them regularly. Brush your pet's hair often using a brush that suits their coat type and length. 

If you have a pet with long hair and a thick undercoat, a grooming glove or slicker brush will get rid of the hair before it ends up in your dinner! 

Use a high-quality vacuum cleaner 

Another way to keep pet hairs out of your sofa and home is to vacuum regularly. But you have to use a vacuum cleaner designed for this purpose. These vacuum cleaners are high-efficiency and stronger than typical vacuums. 

Use an attachment with a brush to really get into your pet's favorite hide-out. Investing in a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter is even better, as it can help remove allergens. 

Wash pet bedding frequently

As pet bedding is a hair magnet, you'll always find it covered in hair. Aside from keeping their sleeping area clean, washing your pet's bedding regularly will remove pet hair and reduce its spread around your home. Don't forget to use pet-friendly detergent and follow the manufacturer's instructions. 

An alternative is to run it through the dryer to loosen the hair. Don't have washable bedding? Invest in one that can withstand regular laundering. 

Invest in an air purifier

If you have pet hair on the carpet and other surfaces, you can be sure it's also floating in the air. 

In pet hair are allergens called pet danders, which can trigger respiratory issues such as asthma and cause rash, hives, and other symptoms on the skin. An air purifier equipped with a HEPA filter can catch allergens, keeping the air clean and fresh. 

Call in the pros

If it seems like you are not getting results or are too busy to even try, you may be better off hiring a professional cleaning company. They have the resources, know-how, and experience to deep clean your home and tackle pet hair from every nook and cranny, leaving your home clean, fresh, and allergen-free.
