Pet Hair Hijinks and How to Clean the Prevailing Hairy Trail of Our Furends

Pet owners think the world of their pets. Almost everything pets do is cute, or funny, or lovable. However, there is one, the collective downside that all pet owners must own up to not being a fan of. (If they don’t, they are most certainly lying.) Pet hair.


Pet hair is gross. It gets everywhere, on everything, and can overtake a household faster than a two-year-old a crayon. In a matter of days, (if you are lucky) pet hair will make any home look unkempt. Therefore, pet owners find it to be a constant chore, cleaning up after their furry family members. While most view it as a labor of love, anything to help the speed of cleaning up is appreciated.

Therefore, fellow pet-parents, here are the best devices for the job of cleaning carpet, hard floors, and upholstery.


Carpet
The New York Times affiliate company, Wirecutter, researched the best vacuum for cleaning pet hair on carpet floors. The result was that robot vacuums are the easiest and most efficient at keeping your home hair-free. Robot vacuums are constantly going and continuously pick up the hair, almost as quick as your pet can drop it. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that this was the preferred option.

However, the study also concluded that most traditional vacuums work about the same. This is regardless of whether the vacuum is specifically designed for pet hair or not. According to Wirecutter, pet-hair-specific vacuums are more gimmick than convenience.


Hard Floors
Thankfully, the option that works best with hard floors is not nearly as expensive as a robot vacuum. It is not even as confusing as a pet-specific, versus non-pet-specific vacuum. Wirecutter suggests a quality dust mop is the easiest, most efficient way to collect pet hair. The specific brand that Wirecutter suggests is the Cedar Dual-Action Microfiber Flip Mop.


Upholstery
Upholstery is one of the hardest parts of the home to keep clean. (It is, unfortunately, also the most noticeable when fuzzy with pet hair.) Most handheld vacuums are rendered useless against pet hair on furniture, because of their design. Plus, robot vacuums are only designed for the floor, thus far.


The good news is, there is a solution. According to Wirecutter, a cordless stick vacuum is going to be a pet owner’s new best friend. (Just kidding, there is no replacing your furry family member.) However, a cordless stick vacuum is light enough and usually powerful enough to get the job done quickly and efficiently.


In summation, pet hair is undoubtedly an ongoing annoyance. However, with these vacuum options from Wirecutter, at least there are tools that provide effective assistance. Hopefully, with the right tools, a system will arise, saving pet owners from the monotony of unending clumps of hair.
