Cooler Weather Guide to Removing Dog Hair from Your Home

Oct 13th 2023

As a pet owner, you know one challenge of having a furry friend is keeping your home free from their hair. There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to remove stubborn dog hair from every nook and cranny in your home. And with cooler weather here to stay, those furry creatures are spending more time (and shedding more hair) inside than ever. But fear not, there are easy tips to effectively remove dog hair and make cleaning your home a breeze.

Upgrade Your Vacuum Cleaner

Not all vacuums are created equal and some simply aren’t equipped to handle the job of removing dog hair. Look for a vacuum like this canister vac with a motorized brushroll and a specialized pet hair attachment. It helps loosen and lift hair from fabric surfaces, such as carpets and upholstery. Additionally, consider investing in a vacuum with an AllergenSeal™ HEPA filter. This filter will trap 99.97% of allergens and dust down to 0.3 microns inside your vacuum. The Kenmore FeatherLite™ Upright Vacuum has a completely sealed system to ensure the air you breathe stays clean.

Use a Lint Roller

A lint roller is another essential tool for removing dog hair from your clothes, furniture, and carpets. It’s an affordable and quick method to remove pet hair from any surface. Keep a lint roller handy in areas where your dog spends most of their time, such as your living room couch or your bed. Roll the lint roller over the surface, and the hair will quickly stick to it. It’s an easy clean-up that won’t damage your fabrics, unlike tape or other adhesives.

Groom Your Dog Regularly

Regular brushing is the most effective way to prevent dog hair from taking over your home. Brush your dog daily, or at least every other day, to prevent excess shedding. Choose a brush that works best for your dog’s coat type and length. Make it a bonding experience! Brushing your dog is a relaxing and enjoyable activity for both you and your furry friend.

Use Rubber Gloves to Get Rid of Dog Hair

If you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to run a lint roller over every surface covered in dog hair, you can use rubber gloves instead. Simply dampen a pair of gloves and run your hand over the surfaces where the hair has collected. The rubber gloves will create static electricity and attract the hair to them. It’s a quick and effective method to remove hair from any surface.

Invest in Throw Blankets or Slipcovers

Not only do they add a cozy touch to your decor, but they also provide an extra layer of protection for your furniture. Simply toss them in the wash when they’ve accumulated too much dog hair and voila- good as new!

With these five easy tips, you’ll be well on your way to a fur-free home. Don’t let dog hair get you down – take action and enjoy a cleaner, happier living space! And remember to give your furry friend some extra belly rubs as a thank you for all the joy (and hair) they bring into your life.
