How to Get Dog & Cat Pet Hair Off Carpet in Downey, CA; Floor Squeegee, Baking Soda & More

Without fail, you can count on your pet shedding volumes of fur or hair, especially dogs and cats. The shedding at rapid paces results in globs of fur piling on the carpet, upholstery, and all other surfaces it lands on. Reaching for the vacuum to clean up the mess is standard practice but sometimes, the pet hair is excessive and the vacuum cannot meet the demand. In an effort to remove the pet hair, Steam Green Carpet Cleaning has compiled alternative methods to remove the piled up pet hair when vacuuming alone isn’t enough.

How to Remove Hair on Carpet with Fabric Softener

Supplies you need: Water, Vacuum, Spray bottle, and Liquid fabric softener
Fabric softener pet hair/fur carpet removal:
1) Combine 3 parts water together and 1 part fabric softener in a squirt bottle.
2) Lightly mist the solution on the carpet. A barely damp surface is all you need, do not over saturate carpets.
3) Let the solution dry for about 10-15 minutes. It should not take too long with minimal moisture.
4) Once it is fully dry, thoroughly vacuum the carpet. Vacuuming the pet hair should easily be removed because the fabric softener has loosened the pet hair/fur from the carpet fibers.

Baking Soda Carpet Pet Hair Remover

Supplies you need: Vacuum and Baking soda.
Baking soda pet fur/hair from carpet removal:
1) Sprinkle the carpet lightly with baking soda, ensuring the surface is well covered.
2) The baking soda should sit for at least 10 minutes.
3) Vacuum the carpets completely, removing the baking soda and pet fur with it. The baking soda will not only help loosen the pet hair from the carpet, but it will also neutralize any lingering odors.

Floor Squeegee or Sponge Mop Hair Remover for Low Pile Carpet

Supplies you need: Vacuum, Spray bottle with water, and Clean Kitchen Sponge Mop
Sponge mop pet hair/fur removal from carpet:
1) Vacuum as much as the hair as much as possible to begin.
2) Lightly dampen the sponge mop with the water bottle.
3) Run the mop across the carpet’s surface with moderate pressure. At this point, the pet hair will clump up. Simply handpick the clumps of hair and vacuum any remaining remnants.

Additional Pet Hair Removal Tips

1) If the pet hair is severe and none of the above mentioned methods are effective, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning expert.
2) Your current vacuum may not be up to par with the pet hair, invest in an upgrade that features a vacuum specifically designed to extract the pet hair from carpets.
3) Wear rubber gloves and manually remove the pet fur/hair out of the carpet fibers with your hands in isolated areas.
4) You can try using the rubber edge of a squeegee by gliding it across the surface of the carpet to help pull up the pet’s hair/fur if you prefer not to use any products for assistance. Vacuum after the hair has been loosened.
