5. Best Canister Vacuum for Pet Hair: Dyson Big Ball
The Dyson Big Ball is a memorable vacuum cleaner because of it’s big ball. It also has earned a reputation as a vacuum that makes a dirty, old carpet look like you just installed it. And yes, that even includes carpets that have had Great Danes (or any dog) on them.
If you’re a pet owner, then you know how difficult it is to keep your home free of pet hair. Here’s a hint – it’s really hard.
This vacuum has Dyson’s trademarked Cinetic technology that sucks up dirt and dust. It even sucks up those microscopic particles that you can’t see. This definitely helps clean up all the nasty stuff that your dog or cat brings in from outside.
Most interestingly, this vacuum doesn’t have any filters, so you do not need to spend time washing and cleaning filters. Plus, it’s kind of gross dealing with filters. I also like the ejector button. Simply press the button, and all the dirt and debris gets shot into the garbage. Just make sure that you have it aimed at the garbage can.
It does have a 0.40 gallon canister that can hold a decent amount of junk, so no need to constantly clean the filter. The vacuum even rights itself up when it tips over, which is pretty cool, but not as useful as you’d think.
This is a Dyson ball vacuum, and that means more maneuverability. Trust me, it helps when you’re trying to vacuum around furniture or moving through a tight hallway. The 20+ foot cord also helps. Of course, the attachments to the vacuum cleaner are stored inside the handle.
My favorite feature is the turbine head. It really does pick up much more hair from hardwood than a normal vacuum. The reverse-spinning brush actually does a better job picking up hair than a normal rotating brush.
If you already have a Dyson vacuum, then don’t worry. You can easily use your other Dyson attachment with this vacuum. In fact, all Dyson attachments are compatible with other Dyson vacuums.
Finally, the filter is a HEPA filter that does a good job trapping allergens and dust inside the vacuum. Of course, this vacuum has received a certification from the National Asthma Association.
