To keep the cat tree clean, I use only 3 things. A Vacuum Cleaner, a Steam Cleaner and a sticky roller.I wasn't sure where to put this. Please move if needed.
How do you keep your cat tree clean? Do you just vacuum it? Or do you have any special gadgets that help get the hair off, rakes, sticky tape, etc? THANKS!
It all depends on how much your cat sheds and some places are more dusty than others. I have the habit of picking up after my cat sleeps on the bed and also whenever he grooms himself and usually he leaves quite a bit of fur behind. So I just use the sticky roller to pick up the loose hair.Thank you all for your replies. Next question. How often do you clean them? I haven't had carpet in years. Because it is just too hard to keep clean with having big dogs in the house. I have blankets over furniture that gets washed weekly (usually.) Do the tree weekly? Or more often? I don't think it needs steam cleaned weekly.
Yes! Squeegee or window wipers. I bought some hand held ones half the size on amazonSqueegee works best on cat trees. Get a small one like you would use in the bathroom and you will be amazed at how well it picks up the hair. After squeegeeing my cat trees, I considered squeegeeing the cat herself. She enjoys being groomed, though. That's not an issue.
The vacuume attachment squeegie is even better like squeegie on steroids. The squeegie spins creating stattic and the vacumme pulls the junk into the canistr so you just dump it in the trash.Yes! Squeegee or window wipers. I bought some hand held ones half the size on amazon
I got the Chom Chom dupe. It's basically the same thing, just costs less. I use it on furniture mostly. For the cat tree, good ole scrapping with my fingers to get the hair to clump up works well for me.We got a ChomChom and it is amazing for cleaning the cat tree. It gets off hair even our pet vacuum doesn't get! I also use it on clothes before I wear them or our furniture.
We do have a pet vacuum (Eureka brand) which is very good.
