Tips for choosing the best vacuum for pet hair
If you have one or more furry friends at home, you know how challenging it can be to clean the pet hair and dander from your floors, furniture, clothes, and just about anything at home.
A good quality vacuum for pet hair can make life much easier for you and will allow you to enjoy living in a cleaner and allergen-free home along with your beloved pets.
In fact, an appropriate vacuum cleaner for pet hair and dander paired with a good quality air purifier can ensure that you live happily under the same roof with your pet, even if you suffer from pet allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems which are often triggered by pet dander and dust.
But how to pick the best vacuum for pet hair for your specific needs?
Here are some basic tips to follow, and the features to look for when buying the best vacuum for pets.
Choose the right type of vacuum for your needs
As you can see from our list, the vacuums for pets vary in types, sizes, and functionalities. There are stick vacuums, upright vacuums, canister vacuums, handheld vacuums, as well as robots and even static vacuums for pets. Many of the vacuums from our list combine several types of vacuum cleaners in one.
Canister vacuums are usually more maneuverable and flexible, as they usually have long hoses allowing you to get to all the hard to reach areas. The major problem with these vacuums is that they can be cumbersome and difficult to move around especially if you have stairs.
Upright vacuums are more mobile, easier to carry around and store, and some of them are even cordless which gives you freedom of movement.
Handheld vacuums are suitable for cleaning car seats, stairs, upholstered furniture, and others. They are not convenient for cleaning the pet hair from the floors of the entire house.
Robot vacuums will help save you the time and effort of manually cleaning the hairs of your pets, but they can clean the floors only and not the furniture.
The overall performance and the performance with cleaning pet hair
When choosing the best vacuum cleaner always keep in mind its overall performance, its suction power, and its ability to clean debris, including embedded pet hair from different surfaces – carpets, hard floors, upholstery or others, depending on the type of surfaces and the flooring you have at home.
The vacuum cleaners we have picked for you are all excellent options for cleaning pet hair, and they perform well on all kinds of surfaces.
Of course, some of them are more powerful than others, and some models have some nice additional features and accessories which can help clean out the embedded hairs, lift them up, as well as ensure that the hairs don’t get wrapped around the cleaning brushes.
The proper tools
The wide variety of vacuum cleaners that we have picked for you have different tools, accessories, and features, some of which are extra helpful when it comes to dealing with pet hair.
Many of the models we have picked for you have been designed specifically for animals and for pet hair and dander, so it makes sense to invest in one of those which comes with special specific tools for handling and removing pet hair, dander, and other debris.
Some have LED lights so you can see all the dirt and hairs, and others come with sensors which will adjust the suction according to the dirt detected.
Some vacuums have self-cleaning brush rolls, to keep them from getting entangled with pet hair, and others have special wands and crevice tools to get the hair out of hard to reach places.
There are vacuum cleaners which can easily be transformed into handheld ones, which are suitable for cleaning stairs, cars, and furniture.
Some transition automatically from cleaning carpets to cleaning hard floors, and others come with other nifty smart or automated features which can make life easier for you.
Always keep in mind the type of surfaces and areas you will have to clean when you are picking the best vacuum cleaner for your needs. Do you have more carpets or more hard floors? Do you have stairs or low furniture?
Choose a vacuum cleaner that will allow you to reach just about anywhere to remove all of the pet hairs and dander from your home.
HEPA filters and other filters
Buying a vacuum cleaner for pet hair with a HEPA or other hypoallergenic sealing or filtering system is a must if there are people with asthma, pet allergies or respiratory problems in your home. These filters and systems will ensure that the allergens are trapped inside the vacuum, rather than let out in the air during the cleaning.
The bagged vacuums which have well-sealed and filtered bags are also excellent for people with pet allergies.
There are even some vacuums like our top pick which have an additional charcoal filter, which will also help absorb the pet odors and freshen the air as you clean as well.
Other essential features
Some of the other features to look for when choosing the most appropriate vacuum cleaner for pet hair removal include:
- The size and weight of the appliance – this is important for its ease of use and its storage
- The sound levels – this is a feature to be careful about if your pets, baby, or you are susceptible to loud noises
- The power level – the more powerful the vacuum, the more suction and stubborn pet hair it will collect. If you have a lot of carpeted floors and upholstery, you will need a more powerful vacuum cleaner than if you have all hard floors at home
- The canister or bag volume and type – the larger the volume of the dust cup or canister or bag, the less often you will need to empty or replace it. Also, most of the good quality vacuums for pets on our list are designed with easy to empty dust cups and canisters
- The price of the vacuum, and the price of any replacement filters, bags, and others – this, of course, depends on your budget, but think about the longer-term return on investment you will receive when choosing the best vacuum for pet hair
