How to Remove Pet Hair From Carpet

Recently we began cleaning the carpets at a trampoline leisure centre near Loughborough. The rule of the indoor leisure centre is that shoes are not to be worn on the trampoline for obvious reasons. This means that woolly socks among other types of socks are worn on the trampoline, and on the carpets. It was immediately obvious that the wool, which comes off the socks, plus the hair both mix and cling onto the carpet fibres.

Our cleaning staff mentioned it to us, and we had to look for a solution to removing the air and wool from the carpet. We initially thought of using a giant lindt remover, but that will be costly and will be time-consuming. We then discovered the airo brush. The airo brush has a spinning brush inside that plucks out hair and other stubborn dirt. As you will see in the picture below, tiny particles could get stuck between the carpet and suction alone was not enough to remove.

The Airo brush was created mainly for removing pet hair, however, as you can see below, it also removes other hair.

1. Many times, it is fair enough to say that vacuuming is a chore, but going to the extra length of finding the right floor head attachment might be too much to ask for some people. one confession from us, perhaps from any cleaner is that it is quite satisfying to be able to remove dirt that seems “irremovable”. So if you like to feel good about how clean your house, this will be an interesting kit for you.

2. Secondly, if bits of hair, wool, tiny debris etc are not removed from your carpet, they will only build up and then they will become a better attractor of dirt. What you end up with is a carpet that is full of dirt and as a result, the carpet fibre wears a faster than necessary.

3. Thirdly, it will make your vacuuming quicker while it will also extract more dirt from deep within the carpet.

As you can see the difference above, if tiny strands of wool or hair or other hard to remove particle are a problem for your carpet, please get yourself a vacuum cleaner with a brush integrated head or but a suitable alternative.
