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.

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.
