In the last few months we received several questions about how to best clean pet hair from the carpet. The best option we've found is on a preventative level.
We found this interesting tool called The FURminator. When we last checked, 2059 Amazon users voted 4.5 out of 5 stars.
It's a lot easier to deshed a dog than it is to vacuum the whole house: Especially the carpet. Sure, an antique Ivory Carpet may hide a Yellow Lab's shedded coat, but don't sacrifice desired decorating values based on that fact alone!
"When FURminator came out, I thought, why the heck is this brush so
expensive? Could it really be worth the money?[...] I imagined all of those piles of fur
being slowly embedded in the carpet throughout the house over the
course of the shedding seasons, and the constant battle to vacuum it
all up. I was tired of that, so I thought I'd give it a try." -
WELL worth the cost!
