Are you tired of finding pet hair all over your couch? Does the thought of sitting down only to be greeted by a furry surprise make you cringe? Fear not! Sweep understands the struggles of keeping your furniture clean, especially when you have hairy pets roaming around. That’s why we’re here to share our expert tips on how to effectively vacuum your couch to rid it of pesky pet hair.

Choose the Right Vacuum Attachment: When it comes to vacuuming pet hair off your couch, not all attachments are created equal. Opt for a vacuum cleaner with a upholstery attachment or a pet hair attachment specifically designed to tackle hair and dander on furniture. These attachments usually have rubber bristles or a rubber strip that helps to lift and trap pet hair effectively.


Prep Your Couch: Before diving into vacuuming, it’s important to prepare your couch for the cleaning process. Remove any cushions or throw pillows and give them a good shake to loosen any embedded pet hair. Use a lint roller or a rubber glove to quickly remove any surface hair before vacuuming.


Start with the Cushions: Begin by vacuuming the cushions thoroughly using the upholstery attachment. Start from the top and work your way down, making sure to get into the crevices and seams where pet hair tends to accumulate. Use short, overlapping strokes to ensure thorough coverage and effective hair removal.


Tackle the Upholstery: Once the cushions are done, it’s time to tackle the upholstery of the couch. Use the same upholstery attachment to vacuum the entire surface of the couch, paying extra attention to areas where your pets like to lounge. Again, use short, overlapping strokes to ensure all pet hair is effectively removed.


Finishing Touches: After vacuuming, give your couch a once-over with a lint roller or a pet hair remover to pick up any stray hairs that may have been missed. If your couch has removable covers, consider washing them according to the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure a thorough clean.

By following these simple yet effective tips, you can keep your couch fur-free and enjoy a cleaner, more comfortable living space. And with Sweep’s convenient app-based platform, scheduling a Sweeper to vacuum the inside of your couch has never been easier. Say goodbye to pet hair-covered furniture and hello to a fresh, clean home!
