If you’re like most pet owners, you have had to deal with that pesky dog hair sticking to your carpet at some point or another. Carpet cleaning can do wonders to remove the hair. But there are other options as well if you’re in a hurry or have pets of your own. Here are five different ways to clean dog hair from carpet.

5 Ways To Clean Dog Hair From Carpet

1) Vacuum Regularly

If you have a dog, vacuum regularly. This goes for both carpets and hardwood or tile floors. Vacuuming will not only remove loose hairs, but it’ll also suck up any dirt or dust on your carpet which can prevent dog hair from sticking to your carpet fibers. It’s best to set a regular schedule (like once per week) rather than just vacuuming when things get bad. If you follow that schedule, even if you don’t do anything extra when there are huge mounds of hair everywhere. Your home will always be in good shape because of your ongoing maintenance efforts.

2) Prevent Shedding

If you’re trying to get rid of dog hair on your carpet but find that it just keeps reappearing. It might be time for a simple grooming session. A well-maintained dog will shed less than one that hasn’t been brushed or bathed in a while. Once a week, brush your dog with a comb or stiff brush, then bathe them using pet shampoo designed specifically for dogs. This will not only help keep your home cleaner but also reduce allergens and lower your dog’s stress levels. It should also go without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise and healthy food so they won’t have excess energy to take out their fur on your furniture. Remember that when it comes to shedding, prevention is key. So if there are any health concerns you should discuss them with a vet before trying anything else. Most issues can be resolved easily if caught early enough! As always, here’s hoping there are no hairballs in yours.

3) Choose High Traffic Areas Carefully

One of your first moves should be to inspect your space and choose high-traffic areas that would benefit most from carpet cleaning. If you can’t think of any, take a look at where your shoes kick up dirt, or where people tend to linger for extended periods. These are good places for hidden pet hair by vacuuming regularly in these spots, you’ll make housecleaning much easier in general. You should also aim to clean upholstery as well as anything that guests or friends might brush against during an afternoon visit.

4) Hairbrushes

Pets shed, some more than others and some tend to shed longer than others, but it’s a fact of life for most pet owners. If you have pets and carpets, your home is probably covered in their hair. One way to minimize how much hair ends up on your floor is by brushing or combing your pets regularly. Regular grooming will keep mats and tangles out of their fur as well as reduce shedding on your furniture and carpet. If regular grooming isn’t for you, then a monthly session with an expert groomer can make all the difference in how much hair ends up on your floor and where it ends up.

5) Use Homemade Solutions

In a pinch, you can clean up hair on your carpet using household cleaners. To start, pour some vinegar into a spray bottle and add one or two cups of warm water. Spray on hair and let it sit for about 15 minutes. After that time has passed, take a towel or scraper and wipe up excess dog hair until no more remains. If you have access to ammonia, use it in place of vinegar by combining 1 part ammonia with 2 parts warm water (about 1 cup of each). Sprinkle baking soda over freshly cleaned carpet where there are lingering smells. Let’s sit for at least 30 minutes before vacuuming. The baking soda will absorb any
