Today I was presented with a vehicle that was covered with hair from the family pet. The hair was of medium length about an inch and a half long. Hair in general presents a problem because of it’s ability to act like a needle and thread itself into fabric. Carpets, floor mats, headboards, and cloth seats all fall victim to embedded hair. As you can see in the picture below the hair was literally covering the floorboard.
The tool that I use and recommend is the Meguairs Gold Class Lint & Hair Extractor. I have used many different lint/hair removal tools and this one is the best. To receive optimum results use a crevice tool along with it. The tool has multiple sized rubber fingers that pick up the pet hair. Their are a few pictures taken from different looks on the brush.
Here are the steps I used to get the carpets and seats hair free. We guarantee that this help you with getting pet hair out of a car. Run the brush across the surface to be cleaned a few times. A pile of hair will begin to accumulate both on the brush and at the end of the stroke. Take the crevice tool and vacuum the pet hair from the extractor then run the vacuum across the pile of pet hair. Repeat these steps as necessary until it comes clean. There is no easy way to get pet hair up. It is going to take time and patience. This car from beginning to end took four hours and it received a full detail. Below you can see the before and after pictures.
