Best Vacuums for Pet Hair and Allergies

Best Vacuums for Pet Hair and AllergiesWoof! Hello you guys! Recently Fluffy did a review of the best deshedding brushes for dogs that shed a lot. Today I decided to continue with the hair theme and review the best vacuum cleaners for pet hair and allergies.

Furminating a dog does help a lot with shedding, but humans are stuck with having at least some pet hair in the house and a vacuum cleaner is the best way to get rid of it.

Look! I don't shed. At all! But Fluffy does. A lot!

We're hoping it's just her puppy hair falling out and she'll get one of my shedless coats. It's a waiting game right now so wish us luck.

Seriously if I have to go another day eating her hair I'll go nuts. Sure I pull her by her hair when we play "hunt the fluff" and eat a few, but when it lies around it's not cool you guys. Not cool at all!

Mommy needs a proper vacuum for cleaning up pet hair around the house. She does not have allergies but some people do. Like intruders that come visit.

Maybe I need to rethink the allergy feature. If they are allergic to fluff then they won't come to visit that much. Hmmm!

Fine, I'll add it in my search. Geez!

What to look for in a pet vacuum?

If you're trying to rid your home of pet hair, then a normal vacuum won't be as effective. There are certain features to look out for when choosing a vacuum cleaner.

You need something that's powerful enough to suck up hair off upholstery and carpets. If you have carpet, then stiff bristles work better.

A vacuum with a good filtration system to keep the air clean from debris while vacuuming.

A HEPA filter has small holes that trap tiny particles before the air gets expelled out of the vacuum into your home again. It is a must-have if you suffer from allergies or asthma.

I've found some vacuums that are specially designed to get rid of pet hair in your home and that helps to keep air clean of allergens.

All of these have good ratings and will get the job done. Let's jump right in.

Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away TruePet Nv752 review
That's my Jaws impression! Woof! I'll be honest you guys. This thing really freaks me out. What if it gobbles me up with the dirt and hair? Grrr!

The Shark TruePet Nv752 vacuum comes with a powered life-away cannister that you can easily detach to allow you to clean hard to reach places.

With a motorized brushroll, that only activates when you tilt the vacuum back, helps you have more control over the brush and easily lifts hair up from carpets. All the part are easy to assemble and to take apart.

      Best Vacuums for Pet Hair and Allergies

      That's it, you guys. I think we're gonna have to go with RoboVac. Mommy is too lazy to use the other vacuum cleaners. This thing might replace her if it's upgraded with automatic food maker and tummy rubber coding.

      Just kidding! Nothing can replace my Renza. Shhh! Don't tell her what I said about replacing her, because I'll be in the dog house. Literally! Grrr!

      Woof! Woooooof!
