How to Easily Remove Stubborn Pet Hair From Your Home, Ames, IA




If you have a fuzzy pet, you know how frustrating it can be to live with pet hair all over your home.  Here is a simple way to remove that stubborn hair from your furniture and carpet.


Use a wet, latex rubber glove to remove pet fur from your furniture. Just put the glove on, run it under cool water, and rub it over your furniture.  Running the glove under water first helps it work better than using the glove dry.  When the glove gets too furry, just rinse it off and repeat the process.  This method is nice since there’s no wasting tape and it’s cheaper than using lint rollers.


To remove pet fur from your carpet, start by vacuuming with a good suctioning vacuum.  Don’t rush.  Take your time and go slowly over the area.  This gives your vacuum brush time to loosen the hair and soil more thoroughly and better suck it up. 


If you have hair that’s being particularly stubborn, run over the carpet with a rubber window squeegee.  This works particularly well for removing frustrating pet hair from carpet.  Be aware, it may be easier to place the squeegee on a long pole for cleaning your carpet so you won’t have to bend over or crawl around on your hands and knees to get the job done.


Of course, we recommend having your upholstery or carpet professionally cleaned every 6 months to remove pet soils and pollutants from your home.  This is the best way to keep your home healthy and clean.  Call Steamway Craftsmen today to schedule an appointment.  Call 515-232-8938 in Ames.  We’d love to hear from you!
