Removing Pet Hair from Your Couch

Written by 

Your pets are an important part of your family, but they tend to keep you busy with house cleaning. Cats and dogs shed and you find yourself always trying to control the hair in the home. Your couch is especially prone to pet hair if the dogs or cats lay on it. Even if they don’t, pet hair can float around in the home and land on items like the couch. In any case, how do you get rid of the hair efficiently or at least control it? There are several ways to do this with various vacuums so that you can get the job done without spending a lot of time on it.

Vacuum Attachments for Pet Hair

Your vacuum may or may not have attachments available for use when needed. If it does, it is probably a brush attachment or a wide floor attachment, but neither works effectively for hair on your couch. It can be done, but will take a lot of time.

Pet Hair Vacuums

Many vacuums are available with an attachment designed specifically for pet hair. It is probably a better idea to just purchase a new vacuum designed for pet hair or get one that contains a pet hair attachment. You could possibly special order an attachment for your existing vacuum, but the ones that include the attachment are designed to handle hair effectively and are designed for use with that particular accessory.

Attachment Styles and Types

Pet hair attachments vary in type and style, depending on the vacuum model and the manufacturer. You can find many with a rubber edge that grips pet hair for easy vacuum pickup. Others may just have a rotating brush system that scoops up the hair and sends it into the vacuum.

There are many variations with the rubber pickup style attachment. For instance, some vacuums have a 1/4-1/2 inch wide rubber component with bumps on it while others may have thicker rubber with flexible stem bristles for better pickup. In other cases, they’ll have both a rubber part and the rotating brush in one attachment.

Rubber Bristles

You may have heard of those fur removers that are constructed of rubber material and look similar to a hair brush, but have rubber bristles. That same concept has been applied to vacuum attachments. The static cling and the flexible bristles sweep up the pet hair with ease. The pet hair attachments follow the same concept. They grab the hair and then use the vacuum suction to draw the hair in.

The bottom line is that a vacuum designed for pet hair will perform better at picking up the hair. In addition, it will provide efficient cleaning that doesn’t take a lot of your time. When you decide it is time for a new vacuum, consider one designed for pet hair. It will work perfectly fine for everything else too!
