All pet owners can attest to the fact that pets shed so much hair and with this comes with more cleaning needs.
Finding the top vacuum for animal hair can be quite a challenge, and it is even harder to find one that picks up pet hairs from hard floors completely without blowing them away.
Well, this article’s got you sorted as it lists four vacuums that work best in cleaning pet hairs among other debris from hardwood floors.
1. Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim Cordless Vacuum
Though this vacuum cleaner goes for approximately $350, it may as well be worth the price as it is versatile and flexibly goes from being a stick vacuum to being handheld. It comes with two attachments with motorized brushes that help in cleaning hard floors and carpets; a floor attachment that picks up fine debris and a crevice tool that picks up larger debris without scratching your floor. It comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts upto 30 minutes and takes 5 hours to obtain a full charge. It has a transparent dirt container that can be easily emptied and a washable filter.
2. Hoover Platinum Linx BH50010 Pet Handheld Cordless Stick Vacuum
This vacuum is versatile as it works great for both carpets and hard floors without causing any physical damage like scratches. It costs around $200 and it runs on a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery that runs between 20 to 30 minutes on a full charge and it has a 3 hour battery charging time. It is perfect for cleaning up pet hairs from hardwood floors due to its powered brush roll that pokes up debris from rugs and edge-cleaning bristles that help to reach tight places thus no need for attachments. It’s biggest advantage is that it has a great suction power even with a low battery. Its dirt cups and filters are easier to clean, is equipped by a two-face filtration for allergens and operates more quietly.
3. Electrolux Ergorapido Clean 2-in-1 Stick/Handheld Vacuum EL1061A
This vacuum goes for about $120 and can be turned from being a stick vacuum to being handheld. It is lightweight and this makes maneuverability easier. It is easy to use, empty its dirt cup, maintain and replace parts. It is equipped with two suction power modes; high power and low power and its brushroll features make it perfect for cleaning tiles, hardwood floors and other bare floor surface. It can also be used to clean carpets. It has a long charging time of 15 to 20 hours.
4. Eureka Quick Up 2 in 1 cordless 96H
This vacuum has a great price of about $50 and its qualities do not really match its low price. It is a 2 in 1 vacuum that easily turns from stick to handheld with the removal of its handle. It can thus be used to clean both floors and areas above the floor. Due to its great suction power, it is ideal for sucking up pet hairs from hardwood floors. It runs for approximately 15 minutes, quite lower for other vacuums and its battery charges completely in 15 hrs which is a considerably too long for a 15 minutes run-time. It comes with a washable filter that helps curb allergens and is bagless. Some of the Eureka Quick Up vacuums usually come with a mountable charging stand that makes it easier to store when not in use or mount when charging. It is quite a catch for a low-cost vacuum cleaner as it offers great qualities.
It is my hope that reading this article will enable you to find the best vacuum for your cleaning needs without sending your cute pets away or replacing your hardwood floor.
