Nothing can be more comforting than coming home after a long day and seeing a cute fluff ball waiting for you. You can feel the love and care of your little companion. It gives you positive vibes and boosts your mood, until you come to realize that you have to break your pet’s heart. Telling them they cannot share the couch/bed with you is one of the most difficult experiences a pet owner can have.
The poor loyal creature just wants to spend time with their beloved owner. Realizing that, witnessing their suffering, getting torn between your love towards your pet and the desire to keep the space clean is the challenge that seems impossible to overcome. However, it is possible to spend your evening sitting on a clean sofa and chilling with your pet, if you follow the step by step hair care guideline below.
You would prefer to bath your pet every day, while you would also prefer not to have bites and scratches all over your hands on a daily basis. The good news is that you do not have to bathe your pet that frequently. Depending on the type of your little fellow, you’ll have to do it once in a few months. Bathing will never become the favorite procedure of your pet. However, you can make their experience more pleasant with a good-quality shampoo and a hair conditioner. The shampoo will prevent their eyes from hurting, as well as make their skin softer. If picked properly, it may also stop hair shedding. The conditioner, in its turn, will detangle your furry companion’s hair, thus making the brushing process easier.
The second step towards a cozy life with your pet is periodically brushing their hair. The time gap between each brushing session will differ, again, depending on the type, breed and personal preferences of your pet. The most moderate frequency is brushing 2-3 times a week. If your pet doesn’t enjoy the procedure, purchase a specialized massaging brush. The rubber surface of the brush will rub your pet’s skin, making them impatient about the next brushing session. Going for a walk, however, will remain the number one activity for them.
Not every solution is fully technical. You can enjoy petting your animal, by simultaneously removing loose hair from their body surface. Grooming gloves are there to help you. They are made of cloth and rubber. Thanks to their special design, they allow you to get rid of unnecessary hair by simply rubbing your little friend. The effectiveness of the item is proven. This option is one of the few that makes hair removal pleasant for both you and your pet.
Tools to Keep Your House Clean
There is a possibility that after all these procedures, you will still find several pet hair on your clothes, furniture, lampshades and floor. In this case, you can try using special rugs to cover up your sofa, couches, and floor. Now, many manufacturers make special rugs with comfortable surface and creative design. Be sure that with these rugs your pet will not feel underestimated or discriminated.
In any case, you need to be ready for a short hair clean-up once in a while. Sometimes it seems like hair is stuck in everything and that it is impossible to fully remove it. That is true, if you are not familiar with the special tools you need to have under your possession, in order to handle it with ease.
The basic step is cleaning up the plain surfaces with a sponge. Soot sponges are the best choice, since they are chemically designed to absorb hair, dust, and dirt without any additional effort. The second option is using sticky roller sheets that are made to take out hair from fabric, leather or suede surfaces. The third and most traditional solution is vacuuming, which will also be easier if you use special filters for hair removal (e.g. HEPA).
If you have the patience and time, you can turn pet hair into textile. If not, simply follow this guideline to enjoy your mutually comfortable life with your favorite fluffy friend.
