• Vacuuming Tips for Pet Owners


    How to vacuum and keep your house clean without getting rid of Fido.

    Do you vacuum and vacuum and still feel like there's pet hair everywhere? Nearly 50% of all U.S. households have a dog, and almost 40% have a cat. That's a lot of pet hair! Here are the tips you've been looking for to keep your floors clean without getting rid of your pets:

    Tip #1: Know the Problem Areas

    Static is one of the primary causes of pet hair clusters in your home. Where there is less airflow, there is going to be more pet hair. This explains why you always find dust bunnies under the furniture. Knowing where to spend extra time when vacuuming is a great way to combat the hair problem.

    Tip #2: Use the Right Tools

    A high-powered vacuum is a pet owner's best friend. Powerful suction is key to getting up even the most stubborn hair. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies, using a vacuum with a good HEPA filter will help keep those allergens under control as you clean. And don't neglect the vacuum attachments. Use the stair and crevice attachments to reach the hair that gets stuck in those hard-to-reach areas.

    Tip #3: Professional Carpet Cleaning Is Your Friend

    No matter how much you vacuum, the hair is just the beginning. Pet dander is one of the most common allergens that can build up in your home. And if you have pets, you know that other stains and odors can make their way into your living space as well.

    Regular professional floor cleaning can help keep the pet hair at bay, pull out the dander that works its way down into the fibers of your carpet, and most importantly, remove the pesky stains and get rid of the odors that go along with having dogs and cats.

    If you have pets, as many of us do, you have to go the extra mile to keep your home clean. In addition to proper upkeep, professional cleaning is essential.
