Vacuums for Pet Hair – 2020 Update

Ideal Vacuum: Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum

Judging by the name, it must come as no surprise that the Dyson Animal is a leading vacuum for cleaning pet hair. This monster of a vacuum supplies premium suction, pet-specific cleansing tools, HEPA filtration, as well as a self-adjusting cleaner head to dominate animal hair on bare floorings to deluxe carpets. It’s an expensive vacuum cleaner yet has a lengthy checklist of positive testimonials from pet moms and dads that have actually been satisfied with this vacuum’s efficiency and also longevity.

This Dyson is made to steer efficiently, thanks to the pivoting ball mechanism, 35-foot power cord, as well as self-adjusting cleaner head. You can transition from cleaning bare floors to vacuuming rugs without requiring any manual adjustments. However, this model does have some ergonomics downsides. At 17.5 pounds, it’s not a particularly light-weight vacuum cleaner.

The genuine examination of any type of vacuum cleaner for animal hair is whether or not it delivers sufficient suction to eliminate hair from your home’s flooring, upholstery. Thousands of users are persuaded that this Dyson is long lasting & powerful.

Best Budget: EUREKA PowerSpeed Pet Turbo Vacuum Cleaner

The Eureka PowerSpeed Upright Vacuum Cleaner delivers plenty of power to capture pet hair, dander, and dirt from your home. This bagless vacuum is easy to maintain with washable filters and doesn’t require the purchase of replacement bags. It includes a Pet Turbo brush attachment for eliminating fur from your furniture or other places above the floor. As a budget vacuum cleaner for pet hair, it’s hard to beat the easy use and affordable price tag.

Reviewers are very satisfied with the suction of this vacuum, along with its quick and easy assembly. The dirt cup is large enough to hold a surprising (and maybe disturbing) amount of hair and dirt and empties easily into the trash. With five height adjustments for the head of the vacuum, you can raise or lower the brush roll for use on hard surface floors or plush carpeting. The biggest complaints on this vacuum include the relatively short power cord (25 feet) and the seemingly short reach of the hose when using attachments. Even still, pet owners say that for the suction power of this budget vacuum, those are minor annoyances.

What to Look for in a Vacuum for Pet Hair

Air Filtering Abilities

Even if no one in your home is allergic to pets, you may want to keep an eye out for vacuums with air filters that keep allergens locked into the bag or canister. Top of the line models may have HEPA filters, which are helpful if members of your family, extended family, or friends have allergies to pet dander.

Easy to Clean Brushes

Just like human hair, pet hair can tangle around a vacuum’s beater brush and make it less effective at picking up dirt. Some vacuums are made with bars that are designed to keep hair from getting tangled, others have special attachments to vacuum areas with lots of fur, and some just have brushes that are easy to remove and clean when fur does get tangled.

  • I can’t recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 men, which speeds things up. They also moved all my furniture out of the way so they could clean all the carpet. I typically have seen other companies just go around obstacles but these guys actually move stuff so they can be thorough. After they left, the carpets looked like new and smelled fresh.We have been putting off carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys use GREEN non-toxic solutions and they still leave you with really clean carpets! If they need a little more cleaning power they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth friendly.Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller service-minded business over a large corporation.

    Very impressed with the tile and grout cleaning done by the Advanced Carpet Care team! My kitchen area needed the most work because of high traffic, cooking and spills. Now, it looks brand new! Impressive! Thanks for a job well done. I highly recommend Advanced Carpet Care!

    I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you need a little more cleaning power, they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth-friendly. Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller, service-minded businesses over a huge corporation.

    Great experience cleaning my carpets. Quick and efficient and did a fantastic job cleaning. They were able to remove a couple stains that were stubborn when we tried to remove them ourselves. Will definitely hire them again
