Cleaning animal hair off carpet

You just moved into your new home or apartment and the carpet looks amazing. You and your family finally get settled in, but wait you have two cats. After a few weeks the carpet becomes covered in cat hair. Trying to keep up vacuuming is exhausting. It’s a pain to have to be constantly lugging out the vacuum. There are a few quick and simple ways to clean up cat hair from your carpet without turning it into an all-day chore.


The simplest way to clean up cat hair on your carpet is to not have any on your carpet to begin with. Place throw rugs in areas of your house that your pet likes to lay. Not only will it help decorate your house but the carpet will remain hair free. Now the question is: how do I get animal hair off my throw rug? Well, that’s simple. Throw it in the washing machine. While you are in the process of the cleaning the rug, keep you animal in a different room.

Lint rollers

For a quick way to clean up a little pet fur on the carpet is a lint roller. It works the same way on the carpet as it does for your clothes. It’s small so it can fit in the hard to reach spots that a vacuum cleaner might not. Cleaning up the lint roller is simple too. Just rip off the hairy piece and throw it away. The whole process of cleaning will take only minutes.

Dryer sheets

If you don’t happen to have a lint roller lying around your house, dryer sheets can work too. You are sure to always have dryer sheets in stock. You could even recycle old ones that have already been in the dryer. This way you are saving money on buying dryer sheets. To ensure all the fur gets off the carpet, spray a little fabric softener before wiping.

Rubber gloves

Get a bucket of water and throw on some gloves. Hair comes up very easy when it is wet. It shouldn’t take much any excessive scrubbing. This method also allows you to get in smaller areas that might be hard to reach otherwise. This may sound like more work than vacuuming, but it is economically more affordable than a vacuum.
