Considering purchasing an Uproot Cleaner Pro after seeing the product on social media? Read this review before purchasing this dog hair removing carpet scraper!
If there is one thing that will pique my interest every single time, it’s a cleaning hack. With two big dogs, one of my daily activities is vacuuming our house and sucking up dog hair. Admittedly, I’m afraid of our house “smelling like dog” so I try to stay on top of it, but even with constant cleaning, there is dog hair that lingers in carpets and rugs. When I saw the Uproot Cleaner Pro – a carpet scraping device that pulls up pet hair and dander – I was immediately intrigued.
To be honest, I sort of forgot about it after I sent the video to Dane, so imagine how excited I was when I found two scrapers (large and small size) in my stocking. That Santa sure does know what’s up….
In any case, if you’ve seen the Uproot Cleaner all over social media (it seems that targeting is spot on for me), then today’s honest review is for you.
My Honest Uproot Cleaner Pro Review
Like I mentioned, I got two sizes, the Uproot Cleaner Pro and the Uproot Cleaner Max, and they came together in a bundle pack. We were at my parent’s house for Christmas so I immediately attempted to use it on her new sofa. They have a black dog and a light grey couch. Unfortunately, the material of their couch and the multi-fabric edge design of the Uproots did not seem compatible. I was afraid that it would create pulls in the couch fabric.
But I was undeterred and took the Uproot Pro over to the carpet stairs and when I tell you that I was nauseated by what I pulled off the “clean” stairs…I could not wait to get home and try it on my own carpet, couch and rugs. It was particularly satisfying on my mom’s stairs, because you could get into the creases that are hard to get with a vacuum hose.
We have a cream colored linen-blend couch at the end of our bed, two accent chairs that have cotton blend covers, multiple rugs (wool and cotton) and builder grade carpet in our home. No surface was safe with an Uproot Cleaner in my hand, let me tell you.
Let me preface this with the fact that I had JUST vacuumed and lint rolled my furniture. Things were “clean” but I’ve always wondered just how much dog hair was still stuck in the surfaces…
It’s safe to say I gagged seeing how much hair I was pulling up. It’s very straightforward to use (simply lightly drag the Uproot against your fabric) and collect it, or vacuum it up.
Uproot Cleaner Review
I didn’t encounter the same issue with any of my surfaces at my house as I did at my parents’ house with delicate fabrics, but it’s something to keep in mind if your furniture is made of super delicate fabric. For example, I probably wouldn’t use this on silky fabrics.
All in all, I would absolutely recommend an Uproot Cleaner, if only for the immense satisfaction (and oddly soothing) feeling I got from pulling up dog hair (and let’s be honest – my own hair) from rugs, furniture and carpet. If you have cats, family members with long hair or are in a rental property and want to check how clean your carpets *actually* are, this might be the best product for you.
