The Best 3 Vacuums for Getting Rid of Pet Hair!

2/20/2017 (Permalink)

Pet Hair

Many families consider the family pet a member of the family. Unfortunately, these family members can leave behind fur and dander that is not only unpleasant to look at but can also aggravate allergies. The first line of defense in combating the pet hair that may be taking over your house is a great vacuum designed to pick it up.

 Most vacuum manufacturers carry a line that is specifically designed to work on pet hair and dander. There are many different kinds to choose from, but the best vacuum will pick up the pet hair, dander, and dirt effortlessly. These three models get consistently high ratings and are big hits with the cat and dog crowd.

1) The Dyson DC25 Animal is a light-weight and bagless vacuum. All of the vacuums in the Dyson Animal series have a great reputation for picking up dirt and hair that other vacuums leave behind. They have a HEPA filters and work well for those suffering from allergies. They can be a little costly, but happy owners believe that they are worth every penny.

2) Bissell's Pet Hair Eraser® Vacuum includes a Pet TurboEraser Tool, a Pet Hair Lifter, and a Pet Contour Tool. These features are all formulated specifically to pick up pet hair. Bissell also sells a attachment that works as a groomer directly on your pet.


3) The Kenmore Progressive Canister has great reviews and pet owners are amazed at its cleaning capabilities. It is fairly reasonably priced, but one major complaint is the cost of repairs. The canister allows it to move around easily and it works well on all surfaces.

SERVPRO of Limestone and Lawrence Counties recommend that you should brush your pet every single day to reduce pet hair. In lieu of that, get a great vacuum and allow Fido on the furniture.

If you need more help getting rid of that pesky pet hair, call the Pet Hair Removal Pro's at SERVPRO of Limestone and Lawrence Counties (256) 233-4033

Benefect 100% Natural Disinfectant

Benefits of Benefect Natural Disinfectant

Have you ever worried about the chemicals you are cleaning your home or workplace with?  Sure they might do the job as far as cleaning goes but what is it actually doing to your system?  How toxic are they?  What are they doing to our environment?

What exactly is Benefect?  Benefect is a patented technology based on Thyme Oil.  In nature, plants produce germ-killing essential oils to protect themselves from invading microbes, similar to how our bodies produce antibodies for our protection.  Benefect is a revolutionary blend of these antimicrobial extracts particularly from the herb Thyme, and it achieves remarkable efficacy & safety profiles without using any traditional synthetic chemicals like ammonia or chlorine.  Benefect has been proven to kill over 99.99% of mold, mildew and bacteria.

Who can use Benefect - the 100% Natural Disinfectant?  Anyone from a Homeowner to a Healthcare Facility can use Benefect due to the fact that it is 100% Botanical and Non Toxic.  It is highly recommended for those with allergies, asthma, respiratory problems and the chemically sensitive.  If you or someone you love has the above you know what the leading cleaning chemicals can do to them, why not give them a safe and effective alternative.  Our 100% natural disinfectant is so safe that you could spray it in your mouth!  

What can I use Benefect on?  Our 100% natural disinfectant is safe to use on just about anything.  You can simply spray and walk away.  Benefect will dissipate and won't leave a film on anything. Benefect is completely food surface safe.  Benefect the 100% natural disinfectant is ideal for the following; kid's toys and high chairs, diaper pails and change tables, countertops, sinks and food preparation, toilet seats, sickrooms, pet areas, garbage cans and sports equipment.  Benefect is also ideal for odor control on carpet and carpet pads and will kill pet urine and vomit, even from concrete.  Some commercial applications would be in food preparation areas, day cares and nurseries, hotels and restaurants, schools and fitness gyms and kennels and barns.

Why use Benefect? I think the better question here is, why wouldn't you use Benefect the 100% natural disinfectant. It's a healthy choice for ourselves and our environment. It's just sensible.
