Dogs and cats belong to the family in most German households. Therefore, the four-legged friends live together with their people mostly in the apartment or in the house. However, the pet hair, with which you dog owners and cat owners constantly has to do something annoying. And not just in the change of coat, but most of the year over.

Which pet hair vacuum cleaner should I choose?

As a keeper of 2 dogs, I’ve already tested some vacuum cleaners myself. There were vacuum cleaners that did not meet our requirements in the least and pet hair vacuum cleaners that really convinced us. But what is the point when buying a suitable pet hair vacuum cleaner actually? Here are a few things you should look out for when buying your pet hair vacuum cleaner.

The budget – what is the maximum cost?

Pet hair Vacuum cleaners you get pretty much in every price range. Also in our Top 10 (see above) you will find a few vacuum cleaners thatcost less than 100 euros . In general, you should expect an average of 150 to 250 euros for a good vacuum cleaner. At the top, of course, there are hardly any limits. So there are certainly pet hair vacuum cleaners, which cost more than 300 euros. The price difference is often noticeable in the features, functions and size of the vacuum cleaner.

With bag or without bag?

Whether you are looking for an animal hair vacuum cleaner with a bag or without a bag , is an absolutely individual decision. Quite fundamentally, one can not say that one is better or worse. Some have made very good experiences with bagless vacuum cleaners, others swear by the vacuum cleaner with bag. After an unfortunately unsuccessful attempt with a bagless vacuum cleaner, I am one of those who speak out rather for pet hair vacuum cleaner with bag.

Which floors should be mainly vacuumed?

In the search for a good vacuum cleaner against pet hair you will come across all sorts of information and numbers. If you want to vacuum with your future vacuum cleaner especially hard floors (tiles, parquet, laminate & Co.), you shouldpay attentionto a good hard floor cleaning class. If in your apartment especially carpet, the vacuum cleaner should have a good carpet cleaning class . Both classes are expressed in the letters from A to G, where A is very good and G rather less good.

Which performance?

Since 2014, a new law of the EU has come into force limiting the maximum performance of vacuum cleaners . This limit was created in the framework of the EU Commission’s Ecodesign Directive and states that since 1 September 2014, only vacuum cleaners with a maximum output of 1,600 watts may be sold within the EU . As part of this process, an energy label was also introduced for the vacuum cleaners, so that consumers can easily read the energy efficiency of the device.

Tips for a pet-free apartment and clothes

We have been dog owners for many years and over time we have found a good rhythm in cleaning the floor in the household in order to minimize the amount of animal hair or dog hair lying around – especially when unexpected visits are required.

Generally we have the following “program”:

Brush dogs or cats daily. Best with a Unterfellbürste * – absolute must, especially with my Malamuth-Mischling. An underfur brush gets loose hair super easy from the fur and thus fly less hair in the apartment and car around.

Vacuum daily. 

Variant 1: Vacuum the vacuum cleaner daily with an animal hair .

Variant 2: program a vacuum cleaner robot for animal hair so that it sucks vacuum daily and suck it twice a week even with the pet hair vacuum cleaner.

How often should I vacuum as a dog owner / cat owner?

Naturally we can not give a blanket answer to that. It all depends on how many dogs and cats live in your household and what kind of coat they are equipped with. Shorthaired dogs and cats usually lose less coat. Long-haired dogs and cats usually leave more fur visible. Since in my household two medium-sized dogs live, we vacuum daily. Until some time ago, I completely took over the vacuuming myself.

Meanwhile, I leave the daily cleaning on the ground floor to the vacuum cleaner robot Eufy RoboVac 11 , where the dogs mainly stay and vacuum about 3 times a week with the  AEG Vampyr CEANIMAL vacuum cleaner with bag by hand.

Upstairs, most of the work is done by the Dirt Devil M607 . Here is a maximum of 1x weekly sucked manually. Once or twice a week (depending on the season), the floor is also wiped with the Vileda Turbo EasyWring Set * – the microfiber cover wipes everything that the two vacuum cleaners can not absorb.

Why not a “normal” vacuum cleaner?

 I have tried “normal” vacuum cleaners, as well as pet hair vacuum cleaners, I can tell you: A real vacuum cleaner for pet hair is worthwhile for various reasons. These are:

1. The special nozzles that are included as standard in the animal hair vacuum cleaners, are much better for the absorption of animal hair. And: they usually do not clog up!

2. The suction power is usually a bit better due to the special nozzles – so even fine hairs and fine dirt are absorbed.

3. The removal of animal hair on upholstery works smoother and faster.

4. The filters in the Tierhaarstaubsaugern are usually “thorough”.

5. You are done much faster with the housework.

But what if you’ve just bought a new vacuum cleaner but it’s not a special pet hair vacuum cleaner? 

Then you can just try the following. Look around the internet for a suitable pet hair nozzle for your vacuum cleaner. You can find them here at Amazon * for example . These nozzles often have rotating or otherwise special brushes and shapes, so you can also absorb animal hair with a “normal” vacuum cleaner something convenient.
