In this article, we will be taking a look at how to remove dog hair from a couch. As much as we all love our pet dogs, their hair can become a pain in the neck to deal with, especially if you have a multi-level coat breed that sheds a lot.
Anyone is able to use the suggestions from this post with zero prior experience required. These tips and tricks should work fine on a regular couch, a leather couch or a microfiber couch without issue but always use common sense. Some manufacturers will advise against doing some of these due to various protective coatings they may add to your couch.
How To Remove Dog Hair From A Couch
The following methods can be done by anyone with minimal effort provided that you clean your furniture on a regular basis to prevent a large build up of fur. The time frame between cleaning will change dog breed to dog breed as different breeds shed more and at different rates than others.
A simple lint roller is a common item in most households and is an excellent, cheap, quick and easy way to remove your dog’s hair from your couch with minimal effort.
Simply roll the lint roller over your couch and as it picks up hair and becomes less sticky, peel back the sticky layer of paper to reveal a new fresh surface and keep repeating the process over and over. It won’t take long before all of your dog’s hair has been cleaned off your couch.
Depending on the type of and material of the couch you have, a lint roller may not be the best option to go with. Fear not, we have plenty of other products below that you can use.
Evercare Pet Mega Cleaning Roller
The Evercare Pet Mega Cleaning Roller is another excellent option for quickly and easily removing your dog’s hair from your couch.
It is essentially a lint roller with a broom handle attached to it to allow easier and quicker movement. It makes the cleaning process much easier and also allows you to use the Evercare Pet Mega Cleaning Roller on your floors, carpets, and rugs if required.
Similar to lint rollers, this may not be the best option for removing your dog’s fur from your furniture depending on the type of material your couch is made from.
The video below shows a quick demonstration of how to use this product.
A high-quality Deshedding Glove is another quick and easy way that you can take advantage of to remove pet fur from your furniture.
The main purpose of a deshedding glove is to remove any loose hair from your dog’s coat before it has had a chance to fall off in your home. They have also proven very effective at removing your dog’s fur once it has fallen off on your couch. As prevention is often better than cure, you can also use the deshedding glove to remove as much of your dog’s loose hair as possible before it can fall off onto your couch.
FUR-D Duo Fur Remover
The FUR-D Duo Fur Remover is, in our opinion at least, the best brush for removing pet hair from a couch on the market. It is a double-sided brush that we will be going over in more detail later in the article.
Similar to the deshedding glove above, the FUR-D Duo Fur Remover is perfect for deshedding your dog prior to its fur having a chance to fall off as well as removing already fallen fur from your couch when needed.
The KONG ZoomGroom is another tool that has been specifically designed to make your life easier by allowing you to quickly and easily deal with dog hair no matter the situation.
When it comes to removing pet fur from a couch, it is best to wet the KONG ZoomGroom to improve its efficiency or use one of the products listed previously in the article as they tend to be better.
We just wanted to include it in the list in case you already have one in your home that you can use.
