Which vacuum cleaner to choose for a house with a pet?

An energy-efficient vacuum cleaner equipped with classic brushes is unlikely to completely clean the apartment in which the animal lives. The hair is difficult to remove – it floats in the air with faster movements, and at the same time it gets stuck between the carpet fibers. While you can collect fur from upholstered furniture by getting your hand inside a rubber glove or with a clothes roller, it’s a bit more difficult with carpets and floors.

When looking for a device that works in a house occupied by a cat or a dog, it is worth paying attention to such parameters and equipment as:

  1. Flow – the higher, the stronger the suction power. High power is important, especially if your house has a lot of rugs – the hair literally pinches between the fibers. It is believed that a vacuum cleaner to collect hair must have a power of at least 800 W.
  2. Cleaning efficiency class – the best models are class A in the carpet cleaning efficiency category. When it comes to vacuuming hard floors, almost every appliance in this category is Class A.
  3. hairbrush – the fur vacuum cleaner must be equipped with a special brush – turbo brush or electric brush† Both ends have rollers with extra fibers that catch the hair well. In the turbo brush, the cleaning mechanism is air powered and runs continuously, while the electric brush is electrically powered and can be turned off at any time.

Choice is also a good solution vacuum cleaner with HEPA filter† The filter traps particles with a size of about 0.3 microns, which ensures that the air blown out of the vacuum cleaner is clean and that no animal hair or dust particles come out of the device.

For pet owners bag models are recommended – because they block pollutants well. Meanwhile, in a bagless vacuum cleaner, dust and pet hair can come out while emptying the tank.

Contrary to appearances, in the apartment where the animal is, Water vacuum cleaners don’t work either. When wet, it can be even more difficult to remove the hair between the carpet fibers.
