Hello, my dust-busting, pet-adoring friends! Welcome back to the Top 10 Go Here, where we make the hunt for the best products not just easier, but a whole lot more fun.
Today, we’re on the prowl for the absolute best vacuums for pet hair 2023 has to offer.
Best Robot Vacuum for Pet Hair
Hoover Onepwr Pet Max
At number 10, we have the Hoover Onepwr Pet Max, a best budget cordless vacuum designed for pet hair.
On test, this vacuum stood out for its excellent performance on all types of debris, including pet hair. It may not have the same power as Dyson, but considering it’s five times cheaper, it’s worth every penny.
Its agility is impressive, and its digital display, effective settings for different surfaces, and a wide range of accessories make this vacuum user-friendly and versatile.
The drawbacks include a non-free-standing design and a slightly heavy feel after prolonged use. The bin could be more intuitive to use, as it can get messy.
Shark Stratos Upright Vacuum
At number 9 is the Shark Stratos Upright Vacuum, a game-changer for pet owners. Our tester loved its dual rollers for both carpet and hard floors, and the anti-hair wrap feature.
What’s more, it has a Powered Lift-Away mode, perfect for tricky corners and under furniture.
But the cherry on top is the unique Odor Neutralizer Technology. It releases a fresh scent, making your rooms feel cleaner – a blessing for pet homes.
We appreciated the easy-to-clean bin and filters. But, be mindful, it weighs 17lbs, not the best for those with mobility issues.
Also, check the model. The AZ3000 is just a vacuum, but the AZ3002 boasts an array of extra tools and odor cartridges.
Samsung Bespoke Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum
Number 8 brings us the Samsung Bespoke Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum.
Like most vacuums, it’s equipped with a 5-layer HEPA filtration system that traps allergens securely within the dustbin. But hold on, the Bespoke takes it a step further.
This vacuum charges on a ‘clean station’, which does double duty – not just juicing up the vacuum, but also vacuuming the dust you’ve collected into a sealed bag.
This means when the station’s full, you can just lift out the sealed bag, sans the allergen exposure.
During our testing, we found it super nimble and loved its respectable 60-minute runtime.
Plus, it features a handy digital screen that keeps you posted about power levels, airflow hiccups, clogs, missing filters, and more.
Heads up though! While the Jet mode is super effective, it does get quite loud. Also, if you’re on the taller side, the telescopic shaft may feel a tad short – our 5’9 tester found it a bit of a stretch.
But don’t let that deter you; the Bespoke is still a fantastic choice for allergy-suffering pet lovers!
LG CordZero A9 Ultimate
The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate clinches the 7th spot.
Although it doesn’t have the same powerful suction or features as the Dyson V15 Detect, it offers great value for money and performs impressively on pet hair across various surfaces.
The vacuum is sturdily built and comes with a wide variety of accessories, including an extra battery and a Power Punch tool.
The downside is its smaller dustbin and the absence of an automatic power adjustment feature.
Dyson Ball Animal 2
Ranking at 6th place is the Dyson Ball Animal 2.
This vacuum is great on all floor types and particularly good with pet hair. It’s nimble, thanks to Dyson’s famous ball design, and the 35-foot cord means you can cover large areas without changing outlets.
However, at 17lbs, it can be difficult to carry up and down stairs.
iRobot Roomba J7+
Halfway through our list, at number 5, is the iRobot Roomba J7+.
This clever gadget zips around the house in precise lines, dutifully identifying obstacles and waving a red flag at anything from Fido’s favourite chew toy to those pesky thin power cords.
Not just a smart-aleck, it’s a stellar performer too, nailing the hair and crumbs test, and weaving around the home like a ballet dancer.
Let’s talk about its pièce de résistance – the self-emptying base. The Roomba j7+ seems to have read the room on the vacuuming mood and when it’s full, heads for its Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal to offload.
This sealed system is a mini dustbin that can store up to 60 days of detritus.
A quick FYI – while the Roomba is a smart cookie, setting Keep Out zones can only be done post-mapping. It’s like knowing the answer only after the quiz.
Also, the app might play hard to get at times, and tight corners are not its favourite playground. This robotic helper may not be a fit for every home, but when it fits, it really performs.
Fasten your seatbelts and get ready for a compact dynamo, the Bissell ICONPet at number 4.
This little beast, with a zest for cleanliness, is perfect for the tight corners of smaller spaces, like apartments.
Our professional tester and fellow pet-parent,sang praises of its hair trapping capabilities – making it a great pick for the allergy-prone.
This vacuum isn’t just cordless; it’s got the moves, swiveling around like a pro dancer, and the tangle-free brush roll? It’s a real game-changer.
Its energy comes from a 22V Lithium-Ion battery, providing a solid 50 minutes of uninterrupted power. Talk about productivity!
And for those of you who detest the ‘dirt contact’ part of emptying the dust bin, you’ll be delighted with its Clean Slide technology.
What adds the icing on the cake are thoughtful design details like the enlightening LED crevice tool and a convenient progress indicator on the charging dock.
However, be warned – this whizz kid may stumble on plush carpets and high-pile rugs.
While we put the original ICONPet to test, Bissell has now come up with upgraded versions – Edge and Turbo.
The former promising to clean up those stubborn edges, while the latter cranks up the suction power.
Both hint at being an upgrade to an already impressive vacuum.
Miele Classic C1 Cat and Dog Canister
Ranking 3rd is the Miele Classic C1 Cat and Dog Canister.
This vacuum features spacious, self-sealing bags and a special charcoal filter, ensuring a thorough clean up of pet hair and other debris.
Despite the high initial and recurring costs for the self-sealing bags, its excellent cleaning performance is undeniable.
Sebo Automatic X4 Boost Upright
Coming in 2nd place is the SEBO AUTOMATIC X4 BOOST UPRIGHT.
Despite its retro look, it astounded us with its pet hair cleaning capabilities.
It’s not the lightest vacuum at 18lbs, and it can be noisy, but its cleaning performance, clearance under furniture, and 40ft power cord make it an excellent choice for pet owners.
Dyson Outsize +
And finally, at the top of our list, our number 1 pick is the Dyson Outside +.
This beast of a cordless vacuum boasts an impressive 220 AW – that’s comparable to a wired model! This tech-filled wonder has all the bells and whistles Dyson is known for.
Say goodbye to tangled hair thanks to its revamped brush bar and enjoy smooth, effortless cleaning with smart sensors that adjust suction based on your floor type.
But here’s the real game-changer – a rear-mounted LCD screen! This nifty feature lets you check the battery life and even guides you with cool ‘how-to’ videos to keep your vacuum in tip-top shape.
What’s more? This beast is fitted with a laser on the hard floor head that highlights dust and grime that would otherwise go unnoticed. Genius, right?
With its whopping half-gallon dust bin, you’ll forget what it’s like to make frequent trips to the trash. It comes with a bunch of handy attachments that’ll make pet owners jump for joy.
The star of the show? The mini motorized tool – your upholstery and stairs will be pet hair-free in no time.
Plus, it also includes a combination tool, a crevice tool, and a stubborn dirt tool, all of which have dedicated storage on the charging dock and the vacuum itself.
Quick heads up, though. The substantial dust bin capacity does make the Outsize a bit bulkier than your average cordless vacuum. You might feel the extra weight when tackling moldings and stairs.
The dust bin’s eject system usually does a good job, but if you overstuff it, you might have to reach in to remove dust clumps. And remember, like all Dysons, it’s a bit of a splurge – but worth every penny!
And that’s a wrap, folks! We’ve delved into the world of vacuums, unearthing the best options for you and your furry companions.
Remember, each vacuum brings its own strengths to the table, so pick one that best suits your home and needs.
Stay clean, stay happy, and until next time, this is Top 10 Go Here, signing off!
