Pets are great companions but they also come with loads of responsibilities. The normal shopping you have been doing for your family before you get a pet will be added by one member, who will be the lovely pet.

Feeding, washing and walking it are some of the responsibilities that you have to be ready for. However, there is an added one that is not that pleasant, and it’s all about pet hair.

Your pet will be walking and jumping all over your house, and in the process, it will be leaving strands of its hair on your couch, the carpet and other surfaces where the hair can stick.

The shedding season will even be worse because the body of the pet will have to get rid of most of its hair. You, therefore, will need to be ready with techniques to remove the hair from those surfaces. The following are some of the methods you can use to remove them.

1.     A Lifter Sponge For Pet Hair

It’s a simple sponge but specially made for the removal of pet hair on difficult surfaces. It has more weight than the usual sponge and can grab significant hair in all areas that you need to be cleaned.

It’s safe for fabrics and so you need not worry about that expensive couch. It's affordable and so you can buy a few to keep because you will need them for many other times.

2.     De-shedding Tools

They are good tools that will help you to deal with the hairs before they land on the surfaces. It’s the same as the “protection is better than cure” concept, because you brush your pet when the shedding season starts, and so you will not have a lot of hair to deal with on the surfaces.

You will use the same tool to removes the hairs that eventually land on the surfaces.

3.     Use A Vacuum Cleaner

If you didn’t have one before you brought your pet in, then you need to invest in a vacuum. It helps you to remove the hairs effortlessly.

Before you use it, however, dilute some fabric softener and spray the areas where the pet hairs are, which obviously is on the carpet and on other fabrics for instance on the seats. The softener does its job of softening both the fibres of the fabrics and the hairs too.

The vacuum can then suck the hairs easily when you run it all over the surfaces.

4.     Microfibre Dust Slippers Or Mop

It’s not wise to use a vacuum on smooth floors because it will blow the hairs all over the rooms. The best tool to use is a dust mop or slippers that are made of microfiber.

They are efficient on these surfaces because in addition to sweeping, the noodle-like fibres have a static cling and so it traps the hairs.

That’s why you are advised not to wash the mops with fabric softener because it will reduce the static.

Pet hair isn’t tough to remove if only you use the right tools.
