Vents that heat and cool your home are quite the traps for pet hair. Use a long, flat duster to get the fur out, which will help ensure they’re working more efficiently. Experts say furnace filters should be replaced more frequently in homes that have pet residents, and you should also remember to clean out your dryer’s lint trap, which catches a lot of hair.
Get the Easy-to-Miss Spots
Hair can get into the strangest places, including nooks and crannies you might not think to clean. In addition to hard-to-reach places, like under your refrigerator and behind (and underneath) furniture, lampshades and long curtains can pick up lots of hair. After a while, you probably don’t even notice the fur anymore. But it’s good to keep these spots in mind if you’re going for a deep cleaning.
