Best cleaning equipment for cleaning up after pet fur/hair
Hi there everyone!
We allow pets at a few of our listings. sometimes the cleaning is easy and hardly noticeable. sometimes, its a nightmare of fur in crevice's that we did not know we had (a little over dramatic, but you get the idea).
What are the best tools you have found to clean up after pets quickly and efficiently? I want to enable my cleaners as best as I can so they are not needing to spend loads of extra time if there is a pet involved with a booking.
We also allow pets in our rental--it is all hardwood floors so that helps with the cleaning! I prefer a shop vac--the smaller ones have a lot of suction and are easy to maneuver. My husband actually thought I was crazy until he used it and then he agree with me. I also completely agree with a lint roller. We have always had pets in our home so we have lots of experience with the cleaning required--lol!
We have cats and dogs and my fave tools for cleaning up hairs off furniture or carpet are: * pet brushes (those spiky metal ones, and the large round deshedder are the 2 we use) * rubber brushes or squegee also works well on stairs and carpet, sounds odd, works a treat!
* sticky roller
following that a strong vacuum (stick vacuums are great but sadly not strong enough) and we love our bissell wet/dry vac for stains and smells, and i'm looking at getting their upright wet vac, people rave about it. Also I love the enzyme based sprays that are for urine, they work fast. Vinegar is good too but can take more time which won't work for cleaners with time constraints.
looking forward to reading other tips as anything that works fast and well is good to know about.
