They are cuddly. They are sweet. But when it comes to the mess they leave behind, pets can be not-so adorable sometimes. That doesn’t mean you need to get rid of your pets, though, or give up the notion of getting one. The pet hair and dander that’s all over your place can be gone in a jiffy with the right vacuum cleaner designed primarily for this mess.
Best Upright Vacuum Cleaner for Pet Hair
Upright vacuum cleaners often have the stronger powerful suction, and they come with multiple attachments for cleaning other places. If it’s for the pet hair and dander you’re after, then the Dyson DC65 Animal Complete is one that’s highly recommended. As if the past versions of this line aren’t strong enough, the company upgraded yet again their Radial Root Cyclone™ to increase the machine’s suction power. It works excellently in sifting deep into carpets and underside of couches, getting all the tiniest bit of pet hair and dander and ingrained human hair strands.
Additionally, the Dyson DC65 isn’t labelled “Complete” for nothing. It is also designed to work gently on delicate rugs and hard floors. With just a switch of a button, the motorized brush bar intended for carpets is turned off. This machine is equipped with the latest exclusive Dyson Ball technology that allows it for easy twisting and turning around furniture and other obstacles. This is very ideal for those who want a cleaning machine that is lightweight enough to be carried up and down the stairs and around a large home.
Best Vacuum for Pet Hair Under $50
Win the pet hair battle with one of the most affordable yet most reliable vacuum cleaners today, the Bissell PowerEdge 81L2A Corded Vacuum. It has more suction power than what its size can suggest. One of its features that customers are very impressed with is its V-shaped front edge, which captures both large and small debris. Moreover, the wipers are made of hair-attracting rubber materials, which help in capturing more pet hair than what suction can do.
Take note, though, that the Bissell 81L2A is most ideal for pet owners who live in a house of mostly hard floors. Also, the cord is only 20-foot long, and that may present a problem if you have a really large home. Nevertheless, if power outlets are over the house, this won’t be an issue.
Best Rated Cordless Vacuum for Pet Hair
Get it as fast as you can! This is how users of the Hoover Linx BH50010 would tell anyone asking about it. We couldn’t agree more if you’ve got pets at home and you’d want to get away from the dangling cords and bothersome bags when cleaning.
Hoover is known for its exclusive WindTunnel technology that allows the machine to clean deep into both carpets and hard floors. And since it is powered by battery, you need not worry about power outlets; it’s even easier to go around the house, up and down the stairs because this machine is very light to be hand-carried around. In case you’d buy this machine, a word of advice: do not leave/store the battery in the charger as this will diminish its life in a short period of time.
Best Handheld Vacuum for Pet Hair 2015
It is small, but it does no small job in cleaning. The Bissell Handheld Vacuum 33A1 features an easy-grip handle and fingertip-access on/off switch. It is designed mainly for picking up hair, thanks to its flexible rubber contour nozzle. It also has a hard nozzle for cleaning dry messes or cars. Top it all off with a weight of about 4 pounds!
