Vacuum for Pet Hair

Pets add much joy to our lives, and they also bring us much pet hair to our houses... It is quite enjoyable when they accompany us and give us the motivation to get out and exercise, but equally, we need to take more care of the living circumstances especially when the pet hair seems overwhelming all over our house.

No matter what breeds they are, pets do shed hair. And the pet hair could show up on the floors, sofa, furniture, or every corner as pet hair that is stuck on your coat will be shaken down and fly into the corner. Thus, a dedicated vacuum that is able to handle the hair, and of course the daily debris and dust, is very essential.

Messy Pet Hair Causes..

It’s essential to realize that some bacteria can be transferred from animals to people and, depending on the severity, can make you very unwell.

Investing in a good quality vacuum can help if you use it regularly to remove as much hair as possible to avoid allergy.

It can also collect things like dust mites, pollen, and mold, which are other common asthma triggers.

Making sure your pet is healthy is the best way to help reduce the risk of parasites on them.

Some vacuum features that you should be focused on

Capacity of the Dust cup

Pet hair takes up a lot of space especially if you have a furry pet, and you need to empty it more often and make sure it is easy to empty. Both INSE S610 cordless stick vacuum and INSE S6T cordless vacuum have a 1.2L large dustbin, which is the second-largest just after Dyson V11 Outsize, and INSE I5 corded vacuum's and INSE P20 pet vacuum's dust cup are big enough among their categories. All of them have a release button that could easily let all the waste out with only one push.

Suction Power

Pet hair could be annoying when it is stuck at any components of the vacuum cleaner, no matter it is because of its weak suction or unfriendly roller brush design. So we'd better choose a vacuum with powerful suction at least. For instance, the INSE S6T cordless vac and S610 cordless vac have 23Kpa or even 25Kpa suction, could pick up the pet hair quickly and contain it inside the dust cup with less remaining at roller brush or get stuck in the middle of the wand.


Pet fur can collect pollen, mold spores, and other outdoor allergens, thus the filtration system of a vacuum cleaner is crucial and it should be able to tackle those mentioned. Among all of the filter types, the HEPA filter is more efficient on this - all INSE cordless vacuums at the moment have a HEPA filter to remove at least 99.97 percent of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and other particulates 0.3 microns or larger. 

Roller brush

If the roller of the vacuum is bigger, it is less likely for pet hair or human hair to get twisted around the roller - INSE S6T and S610 cordless vacuums exactly have big roller brushes than many others. Some vacuums even do not have a roller. See INSE I5 as an example.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a pet vacuum necessary if my pet sheds just scarcely? 

Almost all pets, dogs or cats, shed all year long. No matter what your pet breed is, its hair lands on every surface on furnishing, covers, and clothes as it may love being around everywhere in your house. It could bring allergens or something, not only visible pet hair. Using a vacuum with exclusive accessories and strong suction could largely extract the pet hair that is entangled with the fabric fibers and etc.

Thus, if you expect a hair-and-allergen-free home, it is suggested to get a vacuum for pet hair even if your pet sheds scarcely, and it could be more than just a pet hair vacuum.

Does a pet vacuum cleaner need a lot of maintenance?

It depends. Most pet vacuum cleaners don't need a lot of effort to maintain, replacing the bag or emptying the residue will make the job done. But cleaning out the roller brush, hose, wand, filters from time to time will definitely ensure a normal suction and its life span. It is recommended to replace the filter every three months, based on how often you use the vacuum.

How often should pet parents vacuum?

It is determined by how many pet kids you have and their hair shedding degrees. A pet owner who has a Great Dane may need to clean once every week, but those with long-haired dogs want to clean their house twice to three times a week. And it is also determined by the season as some breeds will shed a lot in summer and spring.

How do you rank the vacuums above on cleaning pet hair?

Focus on your own cleaning needs. If you prefer a battery-powered vacuum, not a corded vacuum or a robot vacuum, INSE S6T cordless vacuum will be No.1, which is also the most powerful one and has the most accessories. Or you could also choose INSE S6P Pro cordless vacuum which has two batteries, compared with S6T.
