5 Best Hand-Held Vacuum Cleaners For Pet Hair Suction

 

 


 

Even if you don't allow your pets on your furniture, pet fur and feathers find a way to fly around your rooms until they land on something nice and soft, like your furniture fabric, with great sticktoitiveness. And what about their pet beds and your carpeted stairs?  It's a lot easier to use a lightweight hand-held vacuum cleaner to suck up these pet hairs than an upright vacuum, and there are those that are particularly efficient pet hair suckers! Here are the top five pet owner favorites....

 

Best Hand-Held Pet Vacuum Number 1: Eureka Hand-Held Vacuum 71 B

"Eureka!" pet owners say.  The five-pound Eureka Hand-Held Vacuum 71 B is the pet owner favorite on Amazon.com. Indeed, it's not short on suction with its 5.5 amp suction motor. And it has another motor that runs the cleaner!

With an on-board crevice tool and a 'Riser Visor' for carpeted stairs and car upholstery, the Eureka Hand-Held Vacuum 71 B does its snazzy sleek appearance justice.  Find the Eureka here.

Best Hand-Held Pet Vacuum Cleaner No. 2:  Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Hand Vac 33A1

With the words 'Pet Hair Eraser' in its name, the Bissell better be good!  Well, according to pet owners, it rocks!   The Bissell comes with two nozzles, one rubber for cleaning upholstery, one hard plastic for sucking up messes, like when there's kitty litter all over the floor.

The Bissell is bag-free and its container is easily removable as is its HEPA filter; both are washable.  A powerful little vacuum, a sucker for pet hair, you can find the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Hand Vac 33A1 here.

 

Best Hand-Held Pet Vacuum Cleaner No. 3: Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim MK2

The Dyson DC44 is a hand-held vacuum with a telescope, immensely convenient for going from sofas to (bare) floors (and cat trees!), and this vac's extension really gets into corners where pet hairs gather.  It's also conveniently cordless, with a 20 minute power last. You have to hold the power button down if you want continuous vacuuming, but if you're just doing spots, this should not be a problems.

As you might expect, the Dyson DC44 is more expensive than the other highly rated hand-held vacuums, but most owners say it's well worth it because of its power.  If you have only bare floors and you can afford the Dyson, you might not need another vacuum, however.  You can find the Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim MK2 at Amazon.com.

 

Best Hand-Held Pet Vacuum Cleaner No. 4: Dirt Devil SD20005RED Scorpion Quick Flip 7 AMP Hand Vac

Customers who swore they would never buy another Dirt Devil have bought the new Dirt Devil Scorpion Quick Flick, and most love it.  With 7 AMPs of power and its Quick Flick crevice tool, I can see why.

But there are other advantages to the Dust Buster. First, it's very light weight - only 3.5 pounds.  And it has a 3 year warranty, longer than most hand-held vacuums.  And, even though the Dust Buster has the Quick Flip crevice tool, the vacuum comes with another, more narrow, crevice tool as an attachment, along with two sizes of hoses, and a pet hair brush.  The Dirt Devil SD20005RED Scorpion Quick Flip 7 AMP Hand Vac is available here.

 

Best Hand-Held Pet Vacuum Cleaner No. 5:Hoover Platinum LINX Pet Cordless Hand Vacuum, BH50030

What a joy it is to own a cordless vacuum, especially a hand-held one, which has the benefit of easy portability. You can just hop around from room to room, without having to switch wall outlets.  This Hoover Linx Pet Cordless Hand Vac is especially designed to suck up pet hair and its 3-blade attachment for hard surfaces and its two brush attachments for upholstery and fragile surfaces are effective at doing just that.

An 18 volt lithium batter powers this Hoover Linx, and what's great about it is that its power doesn't fade as you use it, like most re-chargeables.  When the time comes to charge the battery, it just stops, so it maintains its suction power until then. Another feature of this model s its 25 degree swivel feature, very unusual in a hand-held vacuum. Take a closer look at the Hoover Platinum Linx Pet Cordless Hand Vacuum BH50030 at Amazon.com.

For carpet I love the Dyson

For carpet I love the Dyson DC39, but with the amount of dogs I have, the tubes, filters, and all parts of the vacuum get dirty and are unusable after a year or so. I go through a lot of vacuums. And DC39 is the best vacuum for pet hair. For hard floors, I use the DC39. It works really good at picking up dog hair after I use a broom.

I love the Dyson DC44 so

I love the Dyson DC44 so much! It's great how it's completely cordless so you just charge it and use it. It's definitely the best vacuum for pet hair! It's cool that you can just use it on the sofa and curtains too.
