It’s a feeling every loving pet owner knows well: will I ever get this space free of hair? Much as you love Fido and Fluffy they sure can make a mess. When it comes to carpets and rugs, chances are it’s looking pretty hairy in there! However, we’re here to help you banish the hair fur-ever…

Of course, owning a vacuum that’s specifically designed to handle pet hair on your floor type is going to be a critical part of keeping your home fur-free.

Not all vacuums are created equally so make sure to match the option you choose to your floor type  (hardwood floors need a different vacuum power and style to rugs) and do your research before you buy. Usually, a HEPA filter is going to be your best option as a pet owner, as well as improve your air quality considerably.

Sometimes, however, even a regular vacuuming isn’t enough

Bust out a cheap window squeegee, and use the hard rubber scraper to peel off any hair that’s stubbornly stuck.

You can also buy a cheap pet ‘slicker brush’ for this purpose.

Just don’t use the one you use on your pet, as the bristles will damage over time and become sore to use on delicate skin. It’s a whizz at taming fallen fur, however.

Just because you love your pet doesn’t mean you have to live in a fur ball! Regular preventative cleaning will help you achieve a fur-free home easily.
