How to Vacuum Pet Hair From Carpets

Pet Hair on CarpetPet hair can be very difficult to clean up, especially if you have carpet. On average, a pet sheds at least 80 strands of hair per day, and that’s not even the big pets.

It can get frustrating, believe me, I have two dogs, a cat, and a hamster (pets that all shed like crazy) and it can become quite the handful at times.

Fortunately, there are many different things you can do to maintain the cleanliness of your carpets. As long as you have the right tools, you can get rid of all the shedding on your floor without wasting much time.

Best Way to Clean Pet Hair From Your Carpets

Personally, I like to really clean every sight of hair from my home. So when the hair seems to be stuck in the carpet, I use the sponge mop method. I like to use a spray bottle (whatever old one you have is fine) and then add a bit of baking soda inside.

After I vacuum, what I do is spray big sponge mop I got at Home Depot with the water and baking soda and then dap throughout my carpet. This helps eliminate the hair by breaking them down from the fiber of my carpet. This is a great method especially if the hair seems to not all go away from vacuuming alone.

Mainly with my cat and hamster, I like to use fabric softener for the shedding they cause, as it is the most gentle ingredients that really works. All you need is water, an old spray bottle, and of course liquid fabric softener of your choice. Fill up your empty spray bottle with 1/4 cup of fabric softener and 2 cups water and then use it as a mist to spray all over your carpet floors.

Do not let the spray dampen your carpet because it can discolor your carpet, especially if the fabric softener is scented. Try to only lightly spray your carpet, as all you need is a bit of spray to get the stubborn hairs off.

Baking soda is like the greatest invention of all time, it not only eliminates stains in your kitchen, but it can also get rid of pet hair instantly. All you need of course is your regular vacuum, and baking soda.

Pet vacuum cleaners should ideally be as portable and maneuverable as possible (with reasonable consideration given to suction power), given the fact that pet hair can be found in so many places. – Homefloorexperts.com

Just sprinkle your floor with a light coat of baking soda and allow for it to sit all over for a good five minutes. Then simply vacuum your floor the way you normally would, and you’ll notice how much hair you will get off your floor. This is also a great deodorizing method that will keep your carpet clean.

Other tips to take into consideration:

  1. Invest in a good pet vacuum with various speed levels
  2. Avoid using chemical based cleaning products, as they can be harmful to pet.
  3. Always wear gloves as you clean your floor, because there can be millions of germs on the ground.
  4. Maintain cleaning your carpet to avoid build-up.
  5. Disinfect your cleaning tools as well.
