Dogs are a huge responsibility. They need love, feeding, grooming and exercising. Plus, you need to keep an eye on their mental health. But all the efforts are worth it when you get that excited welcome home after a long day in the office.
One of the downsides though, is the amount of pet hair that seems to get stuck everywhere, particularly in the carpet. And, dogs innocently bring in dust, dirt and bacteria from their walks, that also likes to hide in carpets. With that being said, let’s look at some proven ways to keep dog hair off your carpets.
Reduce Your Dogs Hair Fall
The first way to keep hair off your carpet is to stop it falling there in the first place. If your dog is a hairy breed, start a strict grooming schedule every morning and after walks. You can even add a little dry shampoo and brush it off. This ensures the hair that would have gone into the carpet, gets thrown into the bin.
Vacuum Your Carpet Regularly
If you have dogs in the home, you’ll need to increase your vacuuming schedule. Dog hair on the carpet gets walked on with heavy feet, pushing the dander and bacteria deep down. The best way to prevent this, is to vacuum daily or at least three times a week.
Use Pet Hair Removal Tools
Take a visit to your nearest pet store or DIY centre. They should have some form of pet removal tool for carpets such as rakes, sponges, pet hair magnets or rollers. It’s recommended to try a few out, to see which work best for your type of carpet.
Rub the Carpet with Wet Rubber Gloves
If you can see a lot of dog hair on your carpet, this method works well. Put on rubber gloves and wet your hands. Next, rub the wet gloves over the carpet in one direction. The majority of the dog hair should stick to the wet gloves. Repeat several times until you get a satisfying amount of dog hair up.
