Best Rated Vacuum Cleaners for Pet Hair Removal

Best Rated Vacuum Cleaners for Pet Hair | Comparison & Reviews (2017) – This is a roundup of the best rated vacuums to tackle pet & dog hair and cat fur. Smart-Review limits the selection to only those Pet vacuums with the highest consumer reviews. Pet hair is very hard to vacuum (it sticks to everything because of static electricity), and requires high suction to remove. For this purpose, we have found Dyson Vacuums to have the highest level of suction in the pet vacuum category. Dyson Vacuums include the Tangle-Free Mini Turbine tool, which is ideal for removing pet hair. The Shark NV752 TruePet includes a mini motorized pet tool, and motorized brushroll when using the vacuum as a canister. In the bagged vacuum category, Miele vacuums have strong suction, are very quiet, have a large capacity hygienic bag, and an activated charcoal filter in their Cat & Dog Models, to kill pet odor. Miele vacuums have a sealed system, to keep allergens in the bag and vacuum. Below is a comparison chart of the top rated Pet Hair Vacuums available, comparing their differences, price, top model features, and consumer reviews.

Vacuum Cleaner Glossary of Terms
Why is Pet Hair & Fur so hard to remove? = Hair and Fur from Cats, Dogs, and other animals will stick to surfaces (by static electricity), and are hard to remove without strong suction. If vacuuming on carpeting, a strong beater bar is required. Longer pet hair can also get tangled on the vacuum’s beater bar, or handheld tool. Dyson vacuums have the highest level of suction, and they have developed a “Tangle-Free” tool to eliminate this tangling problem on its handheld tool (see below). Pets also deposit allergens and dander on your carpeting, so if you are prone to allergies, the bagged Miele Cat & Dog vacuums are ideal, as they have sealed systems, self sealing bags, and an activated charcoal filter to trap pet odors.

Dyson “Tangle-Free” Mini Turbine Tool = All Dyson Animal & Complete Upright & Canister Vacuums include an air driven “Tangle Free” Mini Turbine Tool to vacuum upholstery, stairs, car seats, and other smaller areas. This is especially useful for removing pet hair. The new 2016-2017 Dyson Animal 2 Upright, the Dyson Cinetic Animal+Allergy Upright, the Dyson Cinetic Animal Upright, and the Dyson Cinetic Animal Canister all include the newly updated tangle-free turbine tool, that helps prevent hair, threads, pet hair and other hazards from tangling around the counter rotating brushes which is the main difference when you compare this to the previous versions.
Dyson Cinetic™ Science = Dyson’s latest technology for 2016-2017. What makes this technology different is that Dyson uses special rubber tips on the end of each cyclone which oscillate 5,000 times a second to filter out fine dust particles, pet allergens, and eliminate the filter. So the Cinetic vacuums require no filter cleaning or replacement, nothing to clog, as a filter is not needed.

Radial Root Cyclone™ = Radial Root Cyclone™ is Dyson’s powerful Cyclone technology , where airflows maximize suction power. These refinements can help remove more dust, pet hair, and allergens before they hit the filter, keeping the filter cleaner than competitor vacuums.

Best Dyson Vacuums for Pet Hair = Although all Dyson uprights and canisters will do a great job with pet hair, those that we call a pet hair vac have extra tools (like the mini turbo brush) to get rid of pet hair problems. Dyson calls its pet hair vacuums, Dyson Animal or Absolute vacuums. The best pet hair vacs are the Dyson Animal 2 Upright (highest suction), the Dyson Cinetic Animal Upright, the Dyson Cinetic Animal+Allergy Upright, the Dyson Cinetic Animal Canister, and the Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless Vacuum.

Miele AirClean Activated Charcoal Filter = The Miele Cat & Dog Vacuums all have an AirClean filter with activated charcoal which not only cleans the air of allergens, but the activated charcoal filter will eliminate pet odors.
Lifetime HEPA Filter = Most Dyson Vacuums have a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter is best for those with allergies to dust. HEPA filters will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. Dyson Absolute V6 & V8 Cordless Vacuums have Whole machine HEPA Filtration. Great for those with allergies or pets.

Dyson Cordless Vacuum = Dyson cordless vacuums have more suction power than the competition. Radial Root Cyclone™ keeps the filter clean, unlike the competition which can have dust and dirt caked on and must be cleaned regularly. The latest 2016-2017 V6, V7 and V8 Animal Cordless Vacuums have as much suction power as the leading corded uprights, yet weighs less than 5 pounds. The V7 & V8 models have more suction and more brush power than the V6 models. The newest Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless Vacuum is Dyson’s best cordless vacuum with the highest suction, and includes a mini motorized tool, ideal for removing pet hair on smaller areas such as stairs, upholstery, and car interiors. The V8 is also quieter than previous versions, making it more suitable for pets.

Quiet Pet Vacuums = A quieter vacuum won’t disturb your pets. Miele vacuums are ideal as pet vacuums as they seal in the pet hair, allergens, and odors, and are extremely quiet. Suction can be dialed down to make them even quieter. In the cordless category, the Dyson V7 & V8 Cordless Vacuums are substantially quieter than other cordless vacuums.

Bagless Vacuum = Bagless vacuums store dirt and dust in its onboard dust bin which is detachable. You do not need to purchase bags, just take the dust bin to your trash can, to empty it. Most bagless vacs require that you clean the filter from time to time.

Lift-Away Canister = Shark Navigator vacuums have a detachable canister on their uprights, so that you can vacuum stairs, and other hard to reach areas.

HEPA Filter = A HEPA filter is the best type of dirt filtration on a vacuum. This will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming. This is especially important for those with allergies.

Fingertip Controls = The Shark Shark NV752 TruePet has built-in Fingertip Controls right on the handle to adjust from thick carpet, low pile carpets and area rugs, and bare hard & hardwood floors. No more bending over to adjust the brushroll.

Complete Seal Technology = Shark vacuums have sealed systems to hold in dust, dirt, pet hair, allergens from escaping the vacuum.

Cyclonic = Shark’s TruePet system prevents dirt from clogging the filter, so that you have maximum suction at all times.

Extension Hose = A vacuum with an extension hose, allows you to vacuum not only the carpet or floor, but to vacuum upholstery, drapes, stairs, and walls.
