Living with an animal is a wonderful experience full of moments that will be remembered, which does not mean that you will not have to deal with the little discomforts that arise on a daily basis. Sharing space, playing in the living room, cuddling together on the couch or keeping each other company by watching a series in bed, are everyday pleasures that serve to create a beautiful bond.
But let's not forget that most pets, be they dogs or cats, tend to leave a trail of hair in their wake that can make cleaning the house a chore. However, following a series of very simple guidelines, and using anti-hair materials, it will be much easier to keep the house spotless and free of hair (as far as possible).
To prevent surfaces and floors from becoming hairy, the first step is to brush your pet every day. It is important to incorporate it into the daily routine, in addition to maintaining the hygiene of the home, it can become a very pleasant ritual for both.
In the case of dogs, you can take advantage of some of the walks to give them five minutes of brushing, and with cats, you can take advantage of that last moment of relaxation in the evening while watching a series or a movie. In addition to preventing them from shedding more hair, they will have much more shine and softness. It is important to choose the right brush for each animal and type of hair, and make sure that it does not pull or bother them.
Better vacuuming than sweeping
When there are animals at home, it is better to vacuum than to sweep, although rubber brooms can also be effective. For the house to be perfect, it would be advisable to vacuum the floor, carpets and armchairs every day, although due to lack of time this is not usually done.
The robot vacuum cleaner can be a great ally, since it can be programmed at any time of the day to make a complete review of all floors and corners. In addition, most of them have special silicone brushes for hair. It is recommended that the vacuum cleaner is equipped with dust mite filters to ensure perfect cleaning.
Washing machine with special programs
Those who live with animals know that it is easy for everything to end up covered with small hairs: the sofa, the blankets, the bedspread, the cover of your own mattress, our clothes... Sometimes, even after washing the clothes in the washing machine, the little hairs are still there. An effective trick is to pass a sticky roller over the clothes before putting them in the washing machine to remove as many hairs as possible.
Some washing machines already have special programs to remove pet hair. The dryer is also a great help, to give it a final touch and finish getting rid of the last hairs that have stuck to the fabric. Remember to check the filters often and make sure that the garments are suitable for tumble drying.
Microfiber mops and cloths
Microfiber is another material to have around if you live with dogs or cats. It has absorbent and antistatic properties, so it is capable of retaining dirt particles, hair, fur and dust in general. Both in mop and cloth, for cleaning furniture, they will help us to remove any remaining hair that has been deposited on the floor or any other surface.
There are more and more alternative materials designed to repel stains and hair. We can find covers and fabrics for sofas and armchairs, which in addition to being decorative, are very resistant to stains and tears, are anti-hair and offer protection against fungi, bacteria and dust mites. In addition, they are usually very easy to clean simply with a cloth and water, although they can also be machine washed with a result as good as new.
The ideal is that the dog or cat has its own bed, although at certain times we like to be together on the couch or bed. They also need a space exclusively for them where they can take refuge, sleep undisturbed and isolate themselves if they feel like it.
For them to be totally comfortable, it is important to choose a quality mattress, such as balukaDream that we offer in baluka. It is made with high quality viscoelastic and an exclusive anti-hair, anti-mite and liquid repellent fabric. The cover is washable and can be maintained with a damp cloth on a daily basis, and put in the washing machine if necessary.
If you are looking for the best bed for your pet, the balukaDream has it all. Thanks to its memory foammaterial, it offers the most comfortable rest with the ideal firmness for animals of any weight and size. In addition, the hair does not stick to the fabric and can be wiped clean with a cloth in one pass. It is also perfect for cats, because it avoids annoying nail snags.
