Getting Rid of Cat Hair In Your Home

LONG HAIRED CATWe love our little feline critters but sometimes we find it a little frustrating trying to remove their hair from all over the house. This can be a problem if your are having visitors that may be allergic to cat hair. One time before owning my cats and taking care of my asthma, I spent the night at a friends house. Her family had three long haired cats. Bottom line, I had to go to the emergency room because I got an asthma attack so bad than I nearly stopped breathing!  Here are some tips that may help out in this situation.

  1. Sprinkle your carpets with baking soda. This will help to loosen the cat hair in the carpet.
  2. Vacuum your entire house and use the attachment to vacuum the upholstery.
  3. Put on a pair of rubber gloves and rub your hand over the furniture. The gloves will help collect any hair and roll it onto the floor where it can be vacuumed up.
  4. Use a squeegee that is about as large as a push broom. Push it around any hard surfaces to pick up any cat hair.
  5. Wipe down the counters or any other surfaces with a dry kitchen sponge or use a dust buster to pick up any hair.
  6. Brush your cat going in the opposite direction, then  run a lint roller over her to pick up the hair before it falls on the floor.
  7. Give your house another quick vacuuming to ensure that you picked up all of the hair.
