Pets are amazing to have, they keep us company and they give us someone to cuddle when we are feeling sad, but what do you do when your dog doesn’t stop shedding? Being a pet owner is very rewarding but at times it can be very hard to deal with the pet hair that just seems to stick to everything.
If you need help managing your pet hair or your dog’s shedding problem, then you have come to the right place because I am going to discuss some easier ways to deal with all the pet hair in your home.
What’s Wrong With Pet Hair?
First, let’s discuss pet hair. Pet hair can be annoying when it is literally everywhere in your house. It can be frustrating to get rid of because just as you get rid of it all it will magically seem to come back. Not only is pet hair annoying, but it can also be bad for your health. Pet hairs can contain germs and bacteria and they could be in the hairs that are all over your home. It is more hazardous if you have small children or infants in the house because their immune systems may not be as strong. It is also important to note that infants tend to put things in their mouths a lot, especially when they are teething. You don’t want your baby getting pesky pet hairs in their mouth, it can be dangerous and unhealthy for your baby. Also, pet hairs laying around the home can cause a distinct odor to occur. You do not want your house smelling like a wet dog.
Use a Broom
Using a good old broom and dustpan can help you clean up some of your pet hair. It may not be a luxurious way to clean up after your pet, but hey, at least it gets the job done right? There are better options out there on the market if you are willing to spend a bit more than you would from an old broom and dustpan. If the broom and dustpan is not your style, then maybe some of our other tips will help.
Give Your Dog a Haircut
Another way to limit the amount of pet hair in your home is to eliminate the long hairs in the first place. If you do not have a dog yet, and you are looking to get one in the future, you may want to consider purchasing a dog with shorter hair as they generally shed less hair. This will make cleaning up after your dog much easier and you will not have to worry as much about your dog’s hair getting caught up everywhere. If you do currently have a dog with long hair I would suggest you take your dog to go get a haircut. Cutting back the long hairs in a dog’s coat will mean less hair in your home. Cutting some of your dog’s hair is an easy and effective way to manage pet hair in the home.
Get a Robotic Vacuum
Purchasing a robotic vacuum is one of the easiest ways to ensure that those pesky pet hairs will be gone for good. A robotic vacuum is a great option to consider when you want to limit the amount of pet hair in your home. A robotic vacuum is simple and easy to use. You simply change the vacuum, place it in the room you want cleaned, and then let it do the rest!
Some robotic vacuums are actually so advanced that they can but we won’t be getting into that, if you would like to know more about robotic vacuums that use a timer setting then you can learn more here. Robotic vacuums can be used on carpets, hardwood floors, and laminate flooring. Robotic vacuums are my favorite way to manage pet hair in my home because of how easy they are to use. I also like the fact that the robot does all the hard work for me. Also, it allows me to spend my time doing things I enjoy like playing with my dog.
Sometimes it can be really hard to deal with all the pet hair on your floor, fortunately there are some ways that you can limit the amount of pet hair that accumulates in your home. Consider purchasing a robotic vacuum if you don’t already have one. They may seem a bit pricey, but the cost is definitely justified by the amount of pet hair they clean up.
