Your Mount Pleasant, Texas, home wouldn’t be complete without your pets, but you could do without the pet hair your furry family members leave behind. If you’ve got too much pet hair in your home for your comfort, using some HVAC and cleaning solutions will help to improve your indoor air quality.
Use Electrostatic Products
Certain dry mops offer electrostatic cloth refills that do wonders to attract pet hair. Sweeping these mops along the floor will pick up more hair than vacuum cleaners or regular brooms. Dryer sheets have electrostatic properties, so you can use the same principle by running one over your furniture.
Trap Pet Hair with Filters
Hair that pets shed gets into your HVAC system and blows through your ducts. Fighting the endless battle with pet hair is harder when it blows out of your vents. Find the highest MERV-rated filter your HVAC system can handle. Using a filter with a high rating will trap more hair. Change filters regularly to ensure they don’t get clogged with hair and other debris and start blowing it through the system again.
Roll Away the Pet Hair
Nothing works better on stubborn pet hair caught in upholstery than lint rollers. Lint rollers get the pet hair the vacuum doesn’t want to pick up. Give your furniture a once-over with the vacuum’s extensions, and then take care of all the stubborn pet hair with a lint roller. You’ll go through lots of sheets, but the result is worth it.
Use an Air Purifier
Air purifiers are made to get particles out of your home’s air. Help your HVAC system’s filter by using an air purifier. Some air purifiers are formulated to specifically remove pet hair from your home’s air. Look for features like HEPA filters and carbon filters to be sure the air purifier works effectively on pet hair.
