In the month of January, Life Maid Easy was lucky to partner with Drooler Treats, so we thought to introduce our clients with pets to this fantastic local brand. Drooler Treats was founded in 2019 when owners Chandani and Ganika realised that their Labrador Retriever, just like any other dog (or human for that matter), need healthy and nutritious treats. Drooler Treats products are made locally and packed with all the nutrients needed to fuel dogs for their daily adventures.
Now, if you love dogs yourself but is forever agonising over the fact that they get hair over everything and everyone in your home, then you must know that there are ways to effectively get rid of pet hair. Of course, your best bet would be to hire Life Maid Easy to do the job for you. However, here are some quick tips you might want to try out yourself, especially in between services:
Give Your Pet Some Love
Although not all types of pets shed a lot, they do shed to some extent -depending on their breed. You can prevent excessive shedding by brushing your pet’s fur regularly. The great thing about doing this is it’s also one of the ways you can show them your love. You can also ask your groomer or vet about how shedding can be reduced, especially if you have a dog that sheds heavily.
Go for Pet-Friendly Fabrics
Pet hair will stick fast to fabrics such as cotton, wool, loose knits, velvet, velour, and corduroy, among others. Because of this, it might be best to stick to leather, satin and other shiny materials for your furniture cover and beddings, among others.
Wash Pet Beddings Often
Avoid pet hair buildup by regularly washing pet bedding in the washing machine. Once you have washed the bedding, check the drum for any pet hairs and clear these away. Wash these off with a short rinse cycle so they won’t get into your next load of laundry.
Cover Your Furniture
If you are not against covering up your armchair, sofa, or duvet cover with blankets, then you must do so especially on areas your pets like to sit on. This is one of the best moves if you don’t want to keep on getting hair off from your furniture.
Trust Your Vacuum Cleaner
If you allow your pets to sit on your sofa or if they prefer sitting on a favourite armchair, then be sure to regularly vacuum these. You can also invest on an anti-static spray that you can apply on the surface after it has been vacuumed off.
Go Damp with Your Mop or Duster
A damp mop or duster will work best on surfaces with lots of pet hair. Just run a damp duster along walls and skirting boards and it will clean off hair along the way. For your flooring, a damp mop will do it quite nicely.
Rescue Your Clothes with Lint Rollers
Furniture and other stuff in your home are not the only places where pet hair can stick to. These can also cling to your clothing. Good thing there are lint rollers available, which are great tools in removing pet hair from any type of clothing. If you don’t have lint rollers, you can also use tape wrapped around your hand. Just make sure the sticky side is out, so you can use this to brush off the hairs from your clothing.
The quick tips mentioned above are just among the many you can do to get rid of pet hair. If you don’t have time to do it yourself though, you can always contact Life Maid Easy and we will be glad to do it for you along with our other cleaning services.
