The Top 3 Rated Portable Vacuums For Pet Hair and Hardwood

Cleaning Pet Hair From Wood FloorsI don’t know about you, but my dogs are always shedding. I recently replaced beige carpet with dark hardwood thinking that the hair wouldn’t be seen as easily.

Do you think it would work?

No. In fact, I think my dog is dying his hair just so it will show up on the new floor. I use a good handheld vacuum to clean the floor, but it takes a million passes to grab most of it.

The rest of it has to be swept up, which consumes even more of my time. I decided to look into buying the best vacuum for animal hair that will actually get the job done right. If you have this same problem, I would recommend one of the following vacuums:

1. Dyson DC59 Animal (Digital Slim)

The newest vacuum in 2014 it has many great ways to help get your floors clean, even makes pet hair disappear. It has one brush that works on hardwood floors to remove dust and the other is for giving your carpets a deep cleaning.

The wand is detachable which makes vacuuming stairs and other hard-to-reach areas easier. Pet hair will be banished from your floors for good when you pick up this small amazing vacuum because it has a secret weapon: the mini motorized hand tool. It can run for up to 26 minutes while you clean everywhere your pet goes.

If you have a little one around during the day, this might be the best vacuum for you because it’s extremely quiet. At only 11 pounds it is a great multi-use device. Equipped with a nozzle, upholstery tool, dusting brush and hepa-filter you won’t need to worry about adding to the trash while keeping your environment clean as well.
