I know how stressful it can be trying to cleaning cat hair on all of your households since you let your cat wandering and lounging anywhere in the house. With this troublesome work, of course, shaving your cat is absolutely not a choice. It’s not wise as well if you exchange your long-haired cat with the short-haired one because hair or fur is one of the important and beautiful things about cats. Thus, in making the cat hair cleaning becomes easier, you should find a vacuum cleaner.
Actually, you don’t have to spend high expense for a specialized pet hair vacuum cleaner. You can use a common vacuum cleaner in cleaning cat hair which is visible. Then you can dry mop the floor or wipe the wooden furniture to take off the remaining cat’s hair. Another option is using a wet mop or using a wet sponge.
If you feel that the work is too tiring. You may buy a robotic vacuum cleaner which will do the hard work of cleaning cat hair on the whole floor while you are away. However, you still need to clean away things off of your flooring because robotic cleaner can’t touch the underneath part of the large furniture. You need to take it all off, for example, dirty clothing or other articles on the floor. It can be set for only cleaning certain rooms by the use of towers which create barriers at certain doorways. You can find also that there are specialized robot cleaners for cleaning pet hair.
There are some other options for cleaning cat hair in your household without vacuum cleaner at all as explained below:
