How to Remove Hair for Carpet

Get that stubborn hair out of your carpet easily

How to Remove Hair from Carpet 

Your carpet should always look its best. Unfortunately, it is not always that easy. Hair can become embedded into the carpet fibers, leaving a lackluster finish. Pets, whether you have dogs or cats, will shed. Their small hairs can become invisible, but will likely be felt when you are walking barefoot. It may also be the point of contention for trapping odors.

Cleaning carpet is therefore a necessity. There are various ways for you to clean hair out of carpet.

Tips for Removing Pet Hair

Baking soda is a great way to get rid of pet hair and remove the odors that may be trapped in your carpet, too. Sprinkle some of the baking soda on the carpet and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes. Then vacuum it up and check out the bag for all of the hair you were able to get up.

Fabric softener is another method that has been able to help. Mix three parts liquid fabric softener with one part water into an empty spray bottle. Spray the entire area of the carpet and allow it to dry. Once dried, the softener has a way of loosening all of the hair, making it easier for you to vacuum it all up.

You may also want to try a sponge mop. This sounds odd, but it is capable of getting the hair-heavy areas. The mop will agitate the carpet fibers and bring all of the hair to the surface. You can then vacuum up the clumps.

Hair Carpet Rake

You want to get as much of the hair (and other soil) from the carpets. This means you have to try and get the hair loose from the carpet fibers.


  • Static electricity with a balloon

  •  A carpet rake

  • New vacuum

The more you can agitate the carpet prior to vacuuming and the more suction you can get with the vacuum, the more successful you will be.

Carpet cleaning doesn’t have to be a task that you do on your own, either. If you’re not getting the results with a DIY approach or want a professional cleaning from the very start, there are companies that you can call.
