The 3 best vacuums for pet owners

Posted by Whiskers101 on

Whether you’re greeted at the end of every work day by an excited dog, or you have a cuddly cat who loves curling up next to you on the couch, your pet brings joy into your life. But as summer temperatures heat up, they also bring a lot of fur. If you love your pet but don’t love the never-ending battle against pet hair, these super strong vacuum cleaners are for you.

1) Shark Rotator True Pet Vacuum

At over $250, this vacuum is an investment—but for long haired dog owners, it’s also a lifesaver. The motorized brush and multi-tool cleans all surfaces, and the vacuum has hard floor and carpet modes. The swiveling head, equipped with LED lights, banishes pet hair under furniture with the help of a detachable nozzle for hard to reach spaces. The HEPA filter and anti-allergen seal eliminate pet dander and other allergens from your home.

2) Black + Decker Airswivel Lightweight Vacuum

If you need a solid pet hair vacuum that doesn’t break the bank, try Black + Decker’s lightweight model with a handheld pet tool that eliminates fur. At 8.8 pounds, this vacuum is easy to carry up and down stairs, and the washable dust cup saves frequent sweepers the added cost of replacing filters.

This handheld corded vacuum from Bissell is designed to suction that stubborn pet hair that sticks to couches and chairs. The special rubber nozzle pulls pet hair away from upholstery and stairs, while the hard nozzle picks up litter and pet food.
