Dogs are lovable, playful, and adorable creatures that were specially created to keep us company. Whenever we feel sad or have a bad day, they are the only ones that can comfort us. It’s great to own a dog because nobody in this world will love unconditionally even if you get angry at them for making tons of mess.
Unfortunately, the only thing that can be frustrating about having a dog in your house is that they shed all day long. That luscious fur that you admire ends up on your furniture, carpets, bed, and sofa.
There’s no need to give up on your furry little friend because these issues are more than ordinary and there are practical solutions that you can use in your fight against shedding.
Stock up on lint rollers
These small tools are your best friend whenever you need a fast cleanup. Imagine having to go out for a business meeting, dressed in a new suit, and your dog comes running up to you. Because you don’t have time to spare, a lint roller quickly removes the hair and leaves your clothes spotlessly clean.
Plus, they are affordable, and you can find them at any major department store or gas station. You can place a piece under the couch and another one near your bedside to remove the shed hair when you don’t have time to do a full cleaning operation.
Get plenty of sponges and spray bottles
If you’re short on time or you have guests over, and you don’t want to use a vacuum cleaner, you can always rely on a spray bottle filled with water. This alternative to lint rollers is great if you’re going to remove hair from the furniture or hardwood floors. Just spray a little water and dampen a sponge or rubber gloves while lightly gliding them along the area. In a few minutes, your house will be hair-free and clean.
Get a vacuum
You might be tempted to think that a broom gets the job done faster but, in reality, if you skip it and invest in a good vacuum cleaner for getting rid of dog hair, you’ll see the positive results from the very first use. Sweeping floors might burn calories, but it causes more of a mess because it moves the hair and let it floats on different surfaces. Vacuums, on the other hand, suck the hair with one single shot. Just make sure you move back and forth and alternate directions for productive and immediate results.
Keep your mop at hand
Regardless the type of floor that you have in your home, a good mop come in handy for collecting the dirt of hardwood, vinyl, and so on. Moreover, it’s a tad more practical than a vacuum because it removes the hair and leaves the surface shining with one single sweeping. Don’t forget to clean the corner and under the furniture because this is the place where balls of fur can usually be found.
Brush your dog
If you groom your dog on a regular basis, you’ll be able to pull out loose hair before your pet sheds it all over the house. You’ll find a variety of dog brushes that manage to get out even the most delicate hair possible.
