We all know Man’s best friend is considered the dog, right! But when you are considering taking the next step and getting a dog does anyone really talk about all the hair a dog brings along with it? It gets everywhere, the couch, floors, beds, bathroom towels, the list goes on and one but knowing how to clean up all that hair the right way can save you some time and frustration.
Your vacuum will now become your second best friend and will be the backbone to tackling your hair infestation! Dog hair tends to collect most in locations that have less air flow, near floor lamps, corner of the stairs, bottom of the couch, under the kitchen cabinets even around the back of the toilet. To reach all these desolated areas your vacuum can help by using all those attachment you might not even know existed. Each attachment has its own purpose, the attachment that looks just like the main part of the vacuum but smaller is designed for the stairs, the long attachment with the with the narrow end is of course for those hard to get corners where the main vacuum cannot even dream about reaching. There are also two brush like attachment one with softer bristles used for harder surfaces such as that pesky space between the floor and your cabinets and one with harder bristles that can help you with all that hair that is glued to your furniture.
A few other tricks when cleaning up dog hair include dampening your carpet and using a rubber brush to do an initial sweep of the carpet to get all the easily lifted hair first. Then go back and use the vacuum moving in alternating directions to pick up even more hair. It is also important to make sure your filer is clean so the vacuum can run more efficiently. Emptying out your vacuum regularly also helps the vacuum run better.
