The BEST Vacuum Cleaners For Pet Hair

If you’re a pet owner, there’s no better feeling than coming home from work and seeing your furry friend waiting for you at the door. Unfortunately, what can also be waiting for you is pet dander, allergens, and hair, SO MUCH HAIR. Luckily, technology has come a long way from taking a lint roller to your couch and carpet.

But where do you start? There are so many vacuums on the market with a variety of features; it’s nearly impossible to determine which one is the best for sucking up everything your pet leaves behind. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list of the Best Pet Hair Vacuums on the market:

So what makes a vacuum a “pet hair” vacuum? It’s more than just suction; carpets are notorious for clogging up the brushes of your vacuum, which is why many pet hair vacuums have the ability to clean the rotating brush as you clean. Beyond the hair, there’s also allergens and dander to worry about, HEPA filters and hose attachments can help eliminate contaminates on your floor, as well as your upholstery.

The right product for you depends on a number of variables, such as the number of pets you have, their breed, and the type of flooring in your home. So let’s dive deeper into this list and put an end to those itchy eyes and clothes covered in strands of pet hair. If you want to clean more efficiently, you can check out our review on the cordless vacuum cleaners.

Hoover WindTunnel 3 Pro Pet Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner, UH70935

If you’re willing to sacrifice some of the convenience of a lighter, cordless vacuum for a thorough cleaning that you’d experience from a professional service, then a trusted brand like Hoover may have the right product for you. The WindTunnel 3 gets its name from the three channels of suction it creates to lift and remove dirt and debris on your floor’s surface, as well as deep down embedded dirt. The Brushroll can be turned on or off with a foot pedal to move between multiple surfaces on the go. Not only does this unit include an easy rinse HEPA filter, but it also has an odor-absorbing carbon layer that can help rid your home of those unflattering smells your pets can leave behind.

The Pet Tool Pack takes your suction power from the floor to your upholstery, stairs, and furniture; basically anywhere that’s in the vicinity of pet hair can be cleaned. A telescopic wand can extend the reach of your wand to reach high spaces and crevices where pet hair and dust can easily gather and be neglected. The 27’ cord length is the longest of any power cord on this list and when you add that to the 10’ hose, it shouldn’t be hard to make it from outlet to targeted area.

  • WindTunnel 3 Technology creates three channels of suction
  • Regularly rinse the reusable easy rinse filter under running water for long-lasting use
  • Carbon & HEPA Media Filter made with HEPA media and an odor-absorbing carbon layer
  • Multi-Floor Brushroll On/Off move from carpet to hardwood with a press of a pedal.

BISSELL PowerEdge Pet Hard Floor Corded Vacuum, 81L2A

Although the BISSELL PowerEdge doesn’t have the adaptability as the other vacuums on this list do, the unique design was almost enough in and of itself to qualify. Anybody that’s ever tried to vacuum around table legs or furniture knows that it can be tough to reach particular spaces around your home. The V-Shape design and swivel head allow you to clean within a variety of typically hard to reach spaces. The V-Shape also helps direct larger debris into the middle of your suction path while the outside edges capture smaller, fine particles. This also allows you to gather pet hair without the use of a brush roll that can be susceptible to clogging.

This isn’t a cord-free vacuum, but it does boast a 20’ power cord which is slightly above the industry average and without a battery, you don’t have to worry about your power running out before the job is done.

  • Captures debris along edges and in tight spaces-- no attachments or broom needed.
  • The V shape directs larger debris into the center suction path, while the ends of the V capture small, fine debris
  • Swivel head allows you to easily clean around furniture legs

Shark Rocket TruePet Corded Ultra-Light Upright (HV322)

They seemed to have thought of everything when it comes to the Shark Rocket TruePet Upright.

The quick release foot pedal can take your vacuum from the floor to the ceiling with the easy-to-use hand vac.

One of the more unique features has to be the Dust-Away hard floor attachment which is a Swiffer-like sweeper that can pick up large crumbs while also gentle dusting hardwood surfaces because pet hair isn’t contained to carpeted areas. So you’re ultimately getting 3 vacuums in one without sacrificing any power or ability.

  • Ultra-lightweight. At under 9 pounds, it converts into a hand vac for versatile floor-to-ceiling cleaning.
  • Dust-Away™ hard floor attachment + 1 washable microfiber pad. Picks up large debris and fine dust -from bare floors.
