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 had a very positive customer experience with Advanced Carpet Care. I found them to be customer friendly and enjoyable to work with. They were flexible and accomodating to my schedule and willing to move most items to clean under furniture.Our carpets smell fresh and look new and I felt good giving a local company my business. I will definately call them the next time I need my carpets cleaned!

    If you have pets, Gary and his team is the best company to use. Gary has done our carpets a couple times but this time he did our furniture due to one of my cats that had a UTI and peed on the furniture and the area rug. Not only did he get all the stains out but also that icky pee smell that stunk the whole room up. Everything now smells so fresh.

  • I have been using Gary and the guys at Advanced Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years now and just wanted to say Thanks so much for a fantastic job once again! I had a couple of spills this time that I never thought would come out. Of course, Gary got them out and the carpets look great! Gary and his team are friendly, efficient and always do a wonderful job! I would highly recommend them!

    We recently moved into a new home that needed some work. We called Gary at Advanced, who met us at the home immediately following closing to clean the carpet and in our first week here we also hired Gary and team to clean our tile/grout and to do an ozone treatment to get rid of a cigarette smoke smell in our lower level. They not only did an amazing job and had our floors looking brand new, but completely rid our home of any smells and they were all so friendly and efficient. Thanks to Advanced we felt comfortable moving our family into our new home and making it our own. We would highly recommend Advanced and will definitely hire them again!
