Do your guests have a hard time telling where your carpet ends and where your pet begins? Whether your pet hair problem is this bad or if you just have a few trouble spots you need to deal with, Complete Chem-Dry of Lake Orion is here to help you turn your home from hairy to handsome. Pets can be a wonderful addition to any home, but their hair can be a nuisance. These problems are inevitable, and simply vacuuming doesn’t always do the trick. We have compiled three different ways that will help you remove the deeply embedded hair in your carpet, and save you time and money in the process!

Method 1: Baking Soda

Not only is baking soda good for putting out grease fires, it’s also a great way to get rid of pet hair from your carpet. Baking soda will leave your carpets smelling great. All you need for this technique is a fresh box of baking soda and your vacuum. Spread the baking soda substantially over to the hair infested areas of your couch or carpet and allow it to sit for a few minutes. Vacuum it thoroughly and you’re done. Simple yet effective!

Method 2: Fabric Softener

Using fabric softener is also relatively simple and extremely cost effective. Chances are you have some fabric softener lying around the house. For this process, you need a spray bottle, fabric softener, water, and your vacuum. To start you need to mix a simple do-it-yourself solution. The solution consists of three parts water to one part fabric softener. Pour this solution into the spray bottle and lightly spray the affected area of your carpet. After letting it stand for a few minutes, you are ready to vacuum it up. You should see the hair come right out.

Method 3: Sponge Mop or Squeegee

This method is meant for hair that has become embedded deep in your carpet’s fibers. Brush either a sponge mop or squeegee along the troubled areas with the hair and fur. This method works great against stubborn spots.
