  • Not sure about prevention, but I use a tape roll brush to remove hair off the furniture.

  • A manager at a furniture store told me that she puts a sheet over her furniture. LOL!

  • Unfortunantely there is no way (that I know of) to keep hair off of the furniture other than keeping the pets off of the furniture. To remove the hair I use some Scotch Pet Hair Remover, it works great.

  • i dont know if you can prevent it but a pet hair attachement for your vacuum may be a good idea. we had one and it worked great.

  • What I found that works is putting on a rubber glove, dip it in water and rub over pet hair. Works awesome!!

  • I have no clue on how to prevent it besides keeping your pets off of the furniture. We use the vaccum to remove the hair and then follow up with a tape roller to get the hair off and it works pretty good. Also if you have long haired pets you might want to brush them a little more often. Good Luck.

  • what i did and it's probably extreme is leather furniture, laminate flooring and have all dogs that don't really shed. shih tzu and standard poodle.
