Pets shed, especially in the spring and summer when they no longer need their winter coats. Fortunately, there are several things we can do to help keep our homes clean in spite of it.
First, we can set a little time aside to brush or stroke our pets with grooming mitts. This allows us to bond with our furry friends, and we can dispose of the pet hair before it ends up on our floors and furniture.
Secondly, we can vacuum frequently. To remove even more pet hair, try vacuuming from different directions and angles. If, like me, you personally do not have the time and desire to do this each and every time that you vacuum, make an effort to do it from different angles every time I do vacuum. For example: if you vacuum Wednesdays and Saturdays, start in the front of the room the first Wednesday, the back of the room the first Saturday, the right side of the room on the second Wednesday, and the left side of the room on the second Saturday. You’ll be amazed to see how much of a difference changing directions makes!
