Anyone with a dog will know just how much joy they can bring – but let’s not pretend that it’s always easy owning a pooch, particularly if they have lots of long luscious hair that they just love leaving lying around, especially in the carpet.
Regular vacuuming will obviously help you with this particular problem and if you don’t do this at least once a week, you’ll likely find that the pet hair finds itself embedded properly in the upholstery and carpeting – which can be quite tricky to sort out.
Prevention is also better than cure so make sure you’re grooming your dog properly, helping to get rid of any shedding hair before it even lands on the floor.
Thinking about the materials you have at home can also help and you might like to choose certain fabrics that are unlikely to store hair, such as suede, canvas, leather and hardwood flooring in areas where your dog spends a lot of time.
If you love nothing more than lots of carpet at home, however, you can tackle the problem head on by pulling on a pair of damp rubber gloves and brush the carpeting gently. You’ll soon see how effective this method is when you come up with handfuls of hair!
There are also pet hair rollers you can buy that are specifically designed for helping with surplus pet hair, although you can make your own by covering something with duct tape.
