LOL! Proves my point, doesnt it? I only have one cat now but he sheds like crazy. Removing pet fur off furniture is not easy, but I have found cheap way to get a lot of it. I buy foam sponges at Dollar Tree - 8 for $1 - they are made for washing dishes. I run the sponge side over the furniture, and it removes a LOT of the fur. I used to buy lint rollers for this, but they are expensive and dont do any better of a job.

Let me tell you - some humans shed just as bad. There is one home I clean bi-monthly, and the woman has long hair. That LED headlight on my Shark always shows piles of long hair in the bathroom. And long hair can so easily clog a vacuum cleaner. I now stock a pocket knife in my work bag, just to get the hair out of the brush roll! NOT one of my favorite parts of cleaning!

I replied to you yesterday and now this site has disappeared my reply!

Anyway, you just proved my original point. Many pet owners think about this, and will only hire someone who actually likes animals. Me - I would rather clean up a mess made by a pet than some of the HUMAN messes I run into! Holy cow, the way some people lives just astounds me sometimes.

Now, this site IS showing my reply from yesterday. It isnt me, folks. I know what I wrote.

Wish I DID make the big bucks! Here in Florida, or the part I live in, house cleaners only make between $10- 25 per hour. And most do NOT charge $25. Florida is a cheap state in many ways.

Can you go more into depth to explain the technological advances in cleaning chemicals and equipment that you mentioned? Especially how they are now providing safer and more effective cleaning systems?
I would love to know.

I honestly do not think there has been any major technological advances in removing pet hair. There are, to the best of my knowledge, the same old stuff. Lint rollers. Attachments for your vacuum head ( I havent found one that works yet.) Sponges as I described. If furniture is embedded in the stuff, furniture cleaning companies are the best bet.

I find it a bit amusing that many people find dealing with animal fur distasteful. I is no different from our own hair. At least pet hair usually wont clog a vacuum easily, but long human hair WILL! Now, that I do find yucky, digging a pile of hair out of my vacuum's head.

It's affordable...
