Since we moved into the new home and are continually setting stuff Up Im constantly battling fur. Now once all is done and clean it clearly will be easier to mantain, but still I wanna figure this one sooner than later. Any input besides/ in addition to mad vacuuming? On a side note things are progressing and it's getting less stressful everyday so that's a plus. I think by this weekend I should be able to have the living room setup which means I can play my ps4 again! Yay! nod

I have hardwood floors, 2 golden retrievers, and 2 cats. 

It is hair central!  I vacuum multiple times per day, and you can still find hair everyplace.

I have come up with zero solutions, cept getting animals that don't shed.  smile

I've actually thought about putting down carpet, as i worry about my guys slipping around on the hardwood.

I know my sister uses a Roomba at least partially because of the hair from their 3 cats.  She says it works well for removing daily buildup as long as you empty it after every trip.  It's basically like vacuuming/sweeping every day, just less hassle, heh.

We bought new carpet about 18 months ago for our family room. Decided to splurge and get a good brand, spent way too much but it sure is plush.  6 months later we end up with a brand new puppy... now we have a decent carpet cleaner, and have it professionally cleaned about every 3 months.  The puppy is alot better with the potty training, but it still requires regular vacuuming and shampooing to keep any pet odors from setting in.  I have already heard the girlfriend planning on replacing it with tile.  Sure it has daily maintenence for hair, but at least it can always be cleaned back to good as new condition in an hour or two.

Also we bought a Shark steam cleaner for our hardwood floors and so far we like it.

Regular vacuuming and swiffer sweeper type thing is what we use. We also get our dog (Australian Shepherd), shaved/short hair cut once in a while. She still sheds, but when it's cut real short, it's less noticeable.

My wife would tell you to fuck off, but thats not my style:). All joking aside, my buddy in Colorado seems to not care for dogs and would have said the same thing. She would tell him the same thing. paranoid Watch out!

I'll just vacuum like crazy and not let my ocd maker believe that's ps4 will be engulfing fur.  saywhat

Buy another dog that sheds even more heavily, and then you won't be bothered as much by your current dog(s).

I have 3 dogs and hardwood flooring.  You just kinda get used to having to sweep, often.  I gave up on the Roomba and I just use an old fashioned broom.

Further to that point, use a leaf-blower. biggrin

We have two labs and dark-stained hardwood in most of our new house. The amount of hair those two animals drop is amazing...always knew it was bad, but it wasn't so easily visible on carpet. Unfortunately, there isn't anything we can do except either vacuum or sweep every couple days to keep it under control. My next housekeeping investment is going to be a giant dust mop.
