How to remove dog hair from carpet


Rumor has it that a human's best friend is no other than the four-legged, hairy creature, which often expresses their emotions through the noisy act of barking. Yes, dogs are certainly a very desired pet option not only by kids, who consider them play buddies but also by adults who simply can't avoid the charm of all dogs they see while walking in a park, so they choose to take in a puppy of their own.

No matter how much you love your pet, most often they can cause damage to furniture pieces, break home accessories, therefore your patience is constantly tested by the mischievous acts of your beloved dog. Although we can train them not to chew on any wooden surface, our furry friends still can't do anything about the fact that they shed hair everywhere they lay. Our clothes can too testify that even a short cuddle session is enough for our clothes to turn into a hairy mess.

Pet hair is especially harder to remove from carpets because the fibres easily attract and trap in any loose hair. Unlike our most worn garments and the upholstery furniture, carpets are harder to treat frequently, because using the vacuum cleaner more often is not recommended for all carpet materials.

Pet hair removal tricks

Getting hair out of carpet is possible even without rigorous treatment, which could damage the carpet.

Wet cleaning methods

The easiest trick to removing pet hair is to simply get your hands wet and rub onto the carpet surface. Although it may sound unpleasant, it does work. However, if you have to deal with more stubborn pet hair stuck in the carpet, you should consider more invasive methods for removing dog hair.

Use a Sponge mop or Rubber gloves

If you slightly dampen both of these, and run them through the hair infested areas, the results will surprise you. Of course, when using the rubber gloves, you should put them on your hands which can make the hair removal process more time-consuming and tiring but it is nonetheless a great low-cost option.

Use a Carpet rake and a Lint roller

When treating deep piles, you should be well acquainted with the almighty carpet rake, which helps fluff out the carpet fibres. It can be a very helpful tool when removing hair, too. Lint rollers are not only for cleaning hair from clothes and sofas, it can be very useful when getting hair out of carpet, too.

Fabric softener to the rescue

In a spray bottle mix two/three parts of water and one part fabric softener, distribute the mixture onto the surface, but don't get carried away, a light mist of the solution will be enough. After it dries out, the fabric softener loosens the embedded pet hair and with one final vacuuming process the job must be done.

Baking soda method

Although we are used to using baking soda when cleaning carpet stains, it can help us deal with dog hair, too. Apply the solvent onto the surface and let it sit for 15 minutes, then put the vacuum cleaner into action and remove all that was stuck in the fibres.

When we got our mini dachshund puppy, in the process of house breaking him, he had a few accidents and we had no idea that such a tiny and adorable creature would be able to leave such pungently smelling pee stains. We tried everything from makeshift odor neutralisers to heavy duty pee stain removers but nothing seemed to get rid of the smell. Until we came across Number One Carpet Cleaning. They came over to assess the situation - free of charge - and came back the next day to treat the carpet… which has never looked so clean! And the air is finally breathable! 100% recommend for stubborn-smelling stains on your tapestry.

Over 2 weeks ago I was entertaining some guests at my house, where a friend of mine unfortunately fell and sustained an injury on my landing causing a bloody nose. As a result, I had a trail of blood from the top of my cream carpet staircase all the way to the bottom. Being new to the area, I enlisted the services of a different company from my previous address to treat the stairs, but they could only fade the stains. As a second attempt, I tried to treat the carpet myself using a rented Rug Doctor machine from my local Tesco (DO NOT USE - incredibly bad product) to no avail. Exasperated, I went online and searched for a professional carpet cleaning company in my area. I thank heaven and my lucky stars that I came across Number One Carpet Cleaning Fulham. Not only was Stefan incredibly knowledgeable, courteous and professional, but he agreed to come to my house for a consultation to offer his professional opinion on a Saturday in less than 2 hours from when I made the call (as I was seriously considering the possibility of having to put down new carpet at this point due to the reality of having to deal with heavy 2+ week old blood stains). Stefan and his colleague displayed their expertise by: instantly identifying what type of carpet I had; indicating that they had previous experience dealing with this type of stain before and expressed the many various combination of ways in which they could remove the stain. Stefan punctually followed up with me the day after to organise a time to arrange for the cleaning the following week. After my two failed previous attempts I was expecting for the worst, but Stefan's colleague arrived on time, fully equipped - and managed to remove the stains from the carpet in less than an hour - to the point where my carpet looked BRAND NEW! On top of that, from a customer service perspective, they were: extremely professional and diligent, polite and offered fantastic communication. If you are ever looking for a professional carpet cleaning company in the Fulham/Wandsworth/Putney/Southfields area I could not recommend highly enough enlisting the services of this company - for a fair, reasonable price with quality results at the end. If I could list them 6* then I would. Thanks again guys!

I had my carpet cleaned by other two companies previously and never been satisfied until now. Stefan did an amazing job and followed all the steps that others just skip, he also came at a quite short notice. The carpet is like new and smelling great too, I have a big dog so it wasn't an easy job but I am super pleased and will never have anyone else but them cleaning my carpet in the future. Lovely people, great job! Thank you!
Fantastic service - Stefan arrived promptly and cleaned my carpets beautifully. He offered advice on regular cleaning and was totally professional. He gave an accurate quote before he started and went above and beyond to get some stubborn stains out that were tricky to shift. He came back to do my upholstered chairs and armchair. I would have no hesitation in recommending Number ONE Carpet cleaning to anyone thinking of having their carpets and upholstery cleaned - great service and really nice guy.
