Anyone who has cats and dogs understands that they feel a sense of entitlement as family members and relax wherever they choose. As such, they leave the chore of cleaning up their fur to us. This is particularly frustrating when the fur piles up. Removing fur from upholstery is frustrating as it clings and doesn’t want to let go. Many vacuum cleaner upholstery attachments have very flexible bristles which are effective for routine vacuuming and safe on most materials.
A standard vacuum cleaner floor attachment has short, stiff bristles which does the trick quickly on upholstery cushions, flat sheets on beds, etc.. A few quick swipes and the fur is gone. This eliminates the repetitious motion of typical upholstery attachments. You can also buy smaller versions of the same tool with stiff bristles.
This in not recommended for very delicate upholstery fabrics which require standard vacuuming attachments and tremendous care. This is more practical and often necessary for furniture and bed sheets where pets have claimed ownership rights.
