How to Effectively Remove Pet Hair From Carpets

How to Effectively Remove Pet Hair From Carpets

I think we can all agree how lovable pets are. That is until they shed hair and we are left with the tedious task of removing hair from surfaces all over the house including the carpet. Mind you, keeping every inch of your home as well as your clothing free of any fur can be very frustrating if you do not have the right knowledge and equipment. Before we take a look at the different methods that you can use, let’s first list down some of the things that you need.
  • Spray bottle
  • Fabric softener
  • Balloon
  • Squeegee
  • Rubber gloves or rubber flip flops
  • Lint roller
  • Baking soda
  • Vacuum cleaner (we recommending checking out the Dyson Animal as it’s a device that is specifically designed especially for animal fur)
Now that you have a fair idea of what are the things that you need, let’s move forward and discuss some methods that can help you properly remove pet fur.

Methods that can help you properly remove pet fur.

Fabric Softener Pet Hair Removal Technique
1. To start with, you should make a solution by combining one part fabric softener and three parts water inside a spray bottle
2. Then, take that mixture and spray your rug lightly with the mixture. Be cautious not to put on too much as you only need to spray a light mist over your carpet
3. Leave to dry
4. With all the pet fair now loosened up by the fabric softener, you should have no problem sucking them all up with your vacuum cleaner

Balloon Method

This may seem like a silly idea at first but hear us out and you’ll soon realise howthis method works.

1. Start by blowing up a balloon
2. Rub it lightly along the surface of your carpet
3. The static from the balloon will draw in the hairs, pulling them from the fibres of your carpet

Squeegee Method

We’re sure you have a squeegee just lying around the house. This method can be made even better if you have an extra wide one.

1. Start by pushing along the floor.
2. The rubber pulls up the pet hair, freeing it easily from your rugs.

Lint rollers/FURemover Method

Lint rollers and FURemover are two great tools that are made specifically for this tricky task. The lint roller is a small device that has a sticky surface that gets the pet hair as you roll it along the carpet or an article of clothing.

On the other hand, the FURemover is a unique carpet brush that is used for pet hair removal. You can find one at your local pet shop but if you don’t find one there, you may purchase one online. As for how you use it, you use it like a regular brush!

Rubber Glove/Flip Flop Technique

1. These two go hand in hand because you have to wear both of these things on your hands.
2. You start by getting them slightly damp and then, you can wipe them over the surface of your rugs and carpets and watch as the fur sticks to them!

However, there will be a time when neither of these techniques will sufficiently
clean your carpet of all pet hair. Don’t worry though as you can just give us a call
and we’ll be on-site to properly clean your carpet and leave it fresher than ever

Why Commercial Carpet Cleaning is Important For Your Business

Why Commercial Carpet Cleaning is Important For Your Business

Rug Cleaning Services IOM

Keeping the carpets clean in a business establishment is no mean feat.

Even if you had a housekeeping staff on-site to vacuum the carpets every single day, you will be amazed at how dishevelled and old-looking your carpet looks after a year or so, especially if the carpet experiences plenty of foot traffic.

Are you baffled why this is so? Let us give you a quick answer. The reason why your carpet looks like it’s a decade old even after a few years of use is because the soil that is brought in from people’s shoes gets firmly lodged into the fibres of the carpet. And with the underpowered vacuums that most cleaners use, that dirt stays there for a very long time.

And dirt is not the only thing that your carpet has to contend with. There are also various stains caused by food, drinks or even grease that can be very hard to remove. Worse, if you try to remove it yourself without proper guidance and cleaning agents, you may actually cause more damage to the carpet. For this reason and many more, you should always get professional carpet cleaners to take care of your carpets for you. Whether it’s trapped dirt or stubborn stains, professional cleaners have the experience and equipment needed to efficiently handle these things and leave your carpet looking fresh and feeling new.

Having regular carpet cleaning done by the experts gives your business an edge over your competitors. First, it helps in improving the appearance of your business and lets you make a great first impression on your clients. Try putting yourself in your client’s shoes for example and imagine walking through the door and getting met by a filthy carpet. Wouldn’t that make you hesitate to do business with that company? Always remember that first impressions matter and you’d hate to think that you couldn’t close the deal because your carpet was shoddy.

Another great reason is that carpets are by no means cheap, which means you have to protect your investment any which way you can. Getting your carpet regularly cleaned by the cleaning experts will extend its lifespan, letting you get more value for your money.

If it’s been over a year since your last carpet commercial cleaning appointment, it’s high time for you to give us a call and book a service appointment. We are the company to call when it comes to professional carpet cleaning throughout the Isle of Man.
