It's no secret that pets are great companions and we love having them around, just like family. But like kids, they sometimes can't help but make a mess around the house. The amount of hair they shed on the bed, clothes, sofa, carpets, and floor can be frustrating, and cleaning them is never an easy task.
Trying to keep your home clean and fur-free with pets around the house is something we all struggle with, but luckily there are a few tricks that make it a little easier. When you get rid of pet hair mess, you improve the environmental quality inside your home. Thus, it is essential to clean up pet hair around the house, and here are some helpful tips and tricks.
Use Lint Rollers on Your Pet
Surprisingly, lint rollers aren't just for your clothes. They also make removing pet hair a lot easier. The Lola® Rola Sticky Mop™ is like a giant adhesive lint roller that can be used on any surface to remove pet hair mess.
Sweep with Dampened Floor Mops
A damp mop acts like a magnet when it comes to picking up pet hair. If you have hardwood floors be sure to use a wood cleaning product (many will need to be diluted per the label), and avoid leaving any standing pools of water on your floor. The Lola® Microfiber Spritz n' Mop is purr-fect for the job.
Remove Pet Hair Using Your Washing Machine
Washing pet blankets and rugs in the washing machine using hot water will not only remove pet hair, but also household germs, bacteria and dust mites. Adding around half a cup of liquid water softener or white vinegar to your wash cycle can further loosen the hair in the machine. Make sure to pick all the visible pet hair at the end of the wash cycle.
Wipe Surfaces with Rubber Gloves or Sponges
Pet hair clings really well to rubber gloves and damp sponges, and they’ll help get rid of the majority of hair that sticks to your furniture and fixtures. When you wear the gloves and rub your hands all over your belongings, friction between the fabric and glove creates static energy. And this forces the debris such as pet hair to stick to the gloves. You can also use a moist Lola® Pro Amazin™ Sponge & Scrubber Roller Mop to coax pet hair off of the floor. The moisture will help the hair to clump together, making it easier clean.
Use Squeegees to Remove Hair
You can use a window squeegee to also deal with your pet hair problems. Not only does this device remove wet nose prints from windows and mirrors, but you can also use it to rake pet hair off of any surface. Keep one in your car, also!Now, instead of trying to enforce strict rules about where your furry pets can’t hang out, just commit to regular cleaning. Besides, having good pet hair cleaning techniques means more pooch snuggles on the couch, in the bed, and all over that carpet, and any fur parent would love to have that.
