Infiltrate fur-coated corners to keep your house truly clean - especially if you know anyone with pet allergies. Sure you notice errant pet hair when it's all over you black pants or piling up on the easy chair, but what about spots in the house that contain hidden hair and dust? It's a good idea to infiltrate these fur-coated corners to keep your house truly clean - especially if you know anyone with pet allergies.
1. Window Ledges and Blinds
Hair kicked up into the air may settle on the top ledges around your windows and hair on blinds can be pushed back into the air when the blinds are used, spreading it farther and wider.
How to clean it: The Swiffer Duster with an extendable handle extends up to three feet, so you can clean hard to reach places. And the Duster's fibers trap hair instead of spreading it around like a feather duster.
2. Edges of Area Rugs
Sweeping around rugs can leave fur stuck to the sides and corners of the fabric.
How to clean it: Lift up edges when you vacuum the rug or use a hand vacuum for touch ups. If fur is very embedded, try a tape roller.
3. Table Legs
Static on the legs and undersides of tables, where pets often rub, can cause pet hair to accumulate. You may not notice the fur in these cat-and-dog-height areas, but it's there.
How to clean it: To reach underneath tables and around table legs, try using a Swiffer Duster. The fibers can reach corners under the table and around furniture legs, to grab fur that's hard to get by hand.
4. Electronics Cords
Fur sticks to the cords under your desk and behind the TV. If ignored, it can get inside electronics and block fans, causing systems to overheat.
How to clean it: Use the hand-held attachment on your vacuum to suck up hair and dust and clean out computer and TV air vents. Just unplug electronics before cleaning around them!
5. Kitchen Stove
You can't see it, but you might be able to smell it. grease from cooking combined with pet fur can cause very nasty odors.
How to clean it: Getting under low appliances is difficult with a broom or mop. Instead, try the Swiffer Sweeper. Its head swivels 360 degrees so it can lay flat and get far under or behind the stove to grab hidden fur.
