It can be difficult to deal with pets, and it can be even more difficult to deal with what they leave behind. Yes, your pet’s pee and poo may be hard (not to mention quite disgusting) to pick up but in this article, we will be be talking about something that is even more difficult than pee or poo to clean up: the dreaded pet hair.
What makes pet dander difficult to clean up is that they are barely visible to the naked eye. They are really small and thin and fine and can even camouflage to their surroundings. More often than not, pet hair is also translucent, making it even harder to see. They sure are difficult to sweep up and even high powered vacuum cleaners sometimes fail to pick pet hair up.
However, recent technologies make it possible to innovate newer models of vacuum machines, enabling them to successfully pick up pet dander. If you are allergic to pet hair or are constantly bothered by the pet hair in your furniture, then this article is for you. You might benefit from trying the following top rated vacuum machines for pet hair.

It specializes in cleaning carpets but the DC14 can also clean pet dander from narrow and awkward spaces such as the furniture upholstery, stairs and even in the car. This is possible because the vacuum cleaner comes with a Mini Turbine Head that can fit into confined areas. The DC14 also has a Low Reach Floor Tool which helps you reach far places such as the area under the bed and furniture.
The DC14 is successful in cleaning up pet hair because its powerful suction is maintained by its Root8Cyclone ™ technology. This is also done with the PreMotor filter which helps remove pet hair and other dust particles as small as 0.1 micron. You are also assured that it will only expel clean air because of its HEPA filtration system.

The Eureka Boss SmartVac 4870MZ is ideal for people who want to have a high quality vacuum for pet dander but have to stick to their budgets, as it only costs a little above $140. Some people even insist that this bagged vacuum cleaner can clean better than the more expensive models of vacuum.

Dyson DCO7 Animal Vacuum Cleaner
The second model mentioned in this article coming from Dyson, the DC07 is also a very powerful bagless vacuum but has a bigger capacity than the DC14 because its bin can hold about 0.9 gallons of dust, dirt and other particles like pet hair. Pet dander is effectively removed by the Dyson DC07 because of its air powered brush bar which brushes hair and other types of fiber from upholstery and carpeted surfaces.
Another feature of the Dyson DC07 is the Zorb powder which not only absorbs dirt from the carpet but is also effective in freshening the room up. The Dyzolv feature on the other hand, is a spray that efficiently and effectively removes spills and stains from grease, food and soil. Like the DC14, it also uses the Root8Cyclone technology that maintains the suction power of the vacuum cleaner, making it able to remove very small dust particles.
The DC07 also has a HEPA filtration system that can retain even the smallest of microscopic particles of dust, dirt and allergens. It can also automatically adjust to different carpet depths and heights. It is also relatively light and is easy to use around the furniture and appliances. Airflow inside the vacuum is also continuous, preventing curtains and upholstery from sticking to the tools.
