You love your dog, but you love your carpet, too. If you think that the two can’t live together in hair-free harmony, then you’re going to want to check out this video.
As you’ll learn, removing dog hair from carpet isn’t all that difficult. It simply requires the right equipment and a dedication to daily or every other day cleaning, depending on the severity of your pet’s shedding. Of course, some breeds shed less than others, so you’ll want to experiment a bit to find the cleaning schedule that works best for you.

If you suffer from allergies, you may have been led to believe that carpet is low on the list of ideal floor coverings. If you choose wisely, however, this is not the case at all. There is no reason why an allergy or asthma sufferer can’t have the same beautiful, plush luxury of carpet with the rest of the world. Here are some tips to choose a carpet that won’t aggravate your condition:
Go For Synthetic Materials
While the natural movement is definitely on the rise, there is much to be said for synthetics and allergies. Synthetic fibers rob allergens of a place to harbor and grow. Bacteria and mold cannot feed on nylon and polyester. Furthermore, these fibers repel all allergens, so they can’t accumulate. At the same time, these fabrics are often chemically treated to boost their anti-allergen properties, so you’ll want to look for those that are low-VOC.
Pay Attention to Carpet Necessities
Carpeting requires padding and glue for installation. Not all of these products are created equally. Like with the carpet itself, you’ll want to make sure that the ones you choose have low chemical content, but you’ll also want to check on composition and quality. It does little good to select a high quality, anti-allergen carpet if the padding is a safe haven for allergens such as mold.
Be Committed to a Cleaning Regimen
No matter how good your anti-allergen carpet is, you’ll still have to vacuum regularly. If you don’t believe you can maintain a regular cleaning schedule, including regular shampoos, or invest in a good vacuum cleaner, hardwood floors may be a better option for you. Be mindful, however, that hardwoods require frequent cleaning as well—it just doesn’t take quite as long to complete the job each time.

When shopping for hardwood flooring, you’ll need to make your selection from boards in various sizes. Narrower boards, which are often referred to as “strips,” will visually expand a room, while wider planks work best in larger rooms or areas. There are rendering programs available that can help you visualize the impact of different flooring options for each room in your home. Hardwood board size will also impact the installation of your new flooring, so be sure to ask about installation costs and requirements before making the purchase.

Natural stone is an incredibly popular flooring material thanks to its strength and durability. However, stone flooring isn’t maintenance-free. If you want to keep your stone floors looking as good as the day they were installed, you’ll need to take it upon yourself to maintain them to the best of your abilities. In this simple guide, we’ve outlined some of the most important steps you can take to care for your beautiful natural stone flooring and maintain its timeless beautify for many years to come.
Dust off the Broom
The broom is probably one of the most under-utilized tools in your home. Once your natural stone flooring is installed, you’ll want to sweep the floors on a weekly basis to remove sand, grit, and dirt, all of which can damage natural stone surface because they are abrasive. You can also use a vacuum on your floor it it’s textured, but avoid the beater bar.
The best way to keep your stone floors looking their best is to be proactive about scratches and stains. Walk-off mats or area rugs on either side of entrances from the outside will help collect sand, grit, and dirt before it reaches your floor. And always wipe up spills as soon as they occur, as they can result in stubborn stains if left untreated on porous stone.
Avoid the Hard Stuff
Damp mopping will help keep your floors looking beautiful, but there will come a time when more heavy-duty cleaning is needed. For these occasions, avoid cleaners that contain lemon juice, vinegar, or other acids, as well as abrasive cleaners and any ammonia-based cleaners. These products will only dull the floor’s luster and shine.

Berber carpet is one of the most popular carpet styles in America. It’s also one of the easiest to clean. The key is cleaning spills and pet stains as soon as they occur. Sprinkle baking soda on the spill or stain and suck up with your vacuum’s hose attachment. Repeat this process until the baking soda no longer balls up, which means it is no longer absorbing moisture. To see what to do next, watch this video on how to clean Berber carpets.
