If you have a dog that enjoys resting indoors, it’s natural that you run into lots of hair during cleaning day, and you’ll find this chore more challenging when it’s on your carpets, even when using a vacuum cleaner.

As much as you vacuum over every square inch of the carpet, there could still be a lot of hair stuck deep into the fabric. So, how do we go about removing dog hair from carpets easier? Keep reading to find out!

How to remove dog hair from the carpet

The secret to efficient hair removal is to loosen up and gather all the hair for pickup. So, here are two methods that work wonders depending on your tools at hand.

Method #1. Fabric softener method

Most of the issue with hair stuck on the carpet is static cling. If you can remove the electric charge, it’ll be easier for the vacuum cleaner to do its job. Fabric softener works by coating surfaces with chemicals and making the fabric less electrically charged.

Applying this principle, you can trap more hair than you thought possible. For this method, you will need the following:

  • Fabric softener
  • Water
  • An empty spray bottle
  • Vacuum cleaner

With your tools handy, it’s time to remove hair!

  • Step 1: Prepare a mix of three parts water and one part fabric softener inside the spray bottle.
  • Step 2: Spray a gentle mist over the whole surface of the carpet. Don’t go overboard!
  • Step 3: Wait a few minutes, so the softener has reacted on the carpet and dried. Now it should be without static charge.
  • Step 4: Use your vacuum cleaner repeatedly over the carpet. You should be catching lots of loose hair now.

Method #2. Remove hair without a vacuum cleaner

Perhaps you don’t have access to a vacuum cleaner right now! Fortunately, there’s an alternative. If you have a squeegee at home, you’ll be amazed at how easy it can bring all the hair together.

This method is a no-brainer. Just grab a squeegee (the wider, the better), broom, and dustpan. Here’s how to do it in two steps:

  • Step 1: Push your squeegee on the carpet and go along the whole floor, driving the hairs to a point where you’ll gather them all.
  • Step 2: With your broom and dustpan, sweep the hair, and you’re done—pretty easy, right?

Pro tip: Rubber gloves are another great tool if you don’t have a squeegee. Sweep your hands across the carpet, and catch the hair with the bumps on the palms. Just make sure you grab a thick pair of gloves so they can resist the task.

Let the professionals clean your carpets instead!

Removing hair might seem breezy thanks to these methods. However, cleaning your carpets on top of many other tasks at home can wear you down. Fortunately, you can hire the best cleaners in McKinney!
