For many of us, our pets are a part of our household. But if there is one thing that everyone dislikes, it is the amount of pet hair that is shed. While you may vacuum your home regularly, pet hair can be difficult to remove once it becomes embedded in the fibre. Despite your best attempts to clean and reduce their presence, pet hairs are prone to adhering to carpets because they have a grain that allows these hairs to stick. The good news is that by using the correct products and methods, pet hair can be readily removed.
To begin, fill a spray bottle with fabric softener and water in a 1:3 ratio. Spray a light coat of the mixture on your rug after that. Spray only a little mist over your carpet, being cautious not to apply too much. Allow it to dry. This shouldn’t take long if you only used a tiny bit of the solution. To remove all the fur, use a vacuum cleaner. The fabric softener loosens pet hair, making it easier to remove with the vacuum cleaner.
Collect and pick up the hairs your furry pets have shed on the carpets with a pair of standard housekeeping rubber gloves. Rubber is a great material for the fur to stick to, making it easier to remove with gloves like these. You can use the gloves wet or dry, however, spraying a little water on the rugs before rubbing them is recommended. Fur can be removed from carpets, floors, furniture, curtains, beddings, counters, and any other surface with this method.
Carpet rakes are widely used and have been around for a long time. The thin plastic or metal bristles of a carpet or rug rake break through the carpet fibres’ roots. The process stays the same; simply move the rake over the carpet, and the pet hair will collect in the bristles, which you can then remove. If you want to get the deepest clean possible, this is the method to employ. If there is too much pet hair embedded in your carpets, hire a professional carpet cleaning service to aid you.
A rubber squeegee aids in the collection of pet hair that has been firmly embedded in the carpet fibres. Rubber has natural gripping characteristics, making a squeegee far more effective than any other method. All you have to do is stroke the carpet and gather the hair in one place where you can vacuum it up effortlessly. The great aspect about using a rubber squeegee is that it is gentle on fabrics, causes no damage to the carpet, and leaves no residue.
Divide your carpet into four quadrants and sprinkle the baking powder in each. Allow at least 20-30 minutes for it to work before vacuuming or brushing it away. Clean the entire carpet in a systematic manner, making sure you don’t miss any spots. Baking soda works because it loosens the fur in carpet fibres, making it easier to remove with a vacuum cleaner or a brush. Baking soda can also be used to deodorise rugs and remove pet odours.
