Getting Dog Hair Out of Carpet and Upholstery

Your dog is your buddy, your companion, and indeed a cherished member of the family. While you love his antics and his snuggles, what you could probably do without is all the dog hair stuck in your carpet and upholstery. Whether your dog’s hair is soft and fluffy, or coarse and brittle, it can easily get caught in carpet and upholstery fibers, staying there until physically removed. Often, a quick vacuum is just not enough to remove it.

But remove it you must: dog hair contains germs, dander, bacteria, parasites and fleas. This can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms in those who live there as well as anyone visiting the home. Plus, it looks unsightly and unsanitary, and it transfers to clothing quite easily.

While you may be good about vacuuming regularly, you’re not doing much in the way of totally removing the dog hair. All vacuuming does is remove the surface layer. All the dirt and grime that comes with the hair seeps down into your carpets and furniture, and settles there.

Got a dog? Are you planning to move into a home where the previous owners had a dog? Hire a carpet cleaner in Metro Detroit with experience in dog hair removal.

The Truth About Dog Hair

You may love Fido, but his hair and everything tracked in with it can make your family sick due to the following:

  • Bacteria: After playing around outside, your dog tracks in harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli – not to mention diarrhea, which can be transmitted to you from their fur.
  • Dander: Pet dander triggers runny noses and itchy eyes, but it can also pose a risk to your respiratory system, making it difficult for family members and guests to breathe.
  • Parasites: These nasty buggers live in pet hair and can result in parasitic infections, including scabies, hookworms, and tapeworms.
  • Allergy and Asthma Symptoms: Those who are allergic to pet hair can experience symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and wheezing, runny nose, sinus issues, and red and irritated eyes. This can become a daily struggle when dog hair is allowed to remain in carpeting.

I could not be happier with our cleaning service from 1st Class! From my first call, Ginny worked with me to optimize the timing of our cleaning with other work being done, and all communication from there was clear and thorough. Claude and Ginny are genuinely nice people and were a pleasure to work with during the cleaning. They clearly know their stuff and stand behind their work. Results were my formerly bedraggled 9 year old carpets looking brand new and a company I will definitely use again and recommend to others.

This Company did a fantastic job on our 30+ year old carpet that just won't wear out! While we were moving furniture back afterward, I noticed a strip in a traffic area that didn't look quite right. When I contacted them, they were back out within a few hours and promptly took care of the issue!

We have a carpet that was the best quality at the time, but is 30 years old. It had so many stains, I was sure they were permanent. The owners showed up with state of the art equipment and 'steam' cleaned, not hot water clean, and got almost every stain and mark out of this old carpet. It honestly looks like new. The only stain remaining was because it was actual wood stain and you have to replace the carpet with that much damage. The steam allows you to walk on the carpet in 6 hours instead of the usual 24. We are selling this house and the carpet was the only sore spot, but not anymore. I will recommend this company to family and friends with a clear conscience.
