Dyson Ball Animal 2
Upright vacuum cleaners tend to not be the most maneuverable things around. It's probably happened to more than one person where trying to maneuver a vacuum around a tight corner ends up with the vacuum cleaner tipping over. For users of the Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum, though, this problem is a thing of the past. Thanks to Dyson's unique Ball technology, the vacuum cleaner always returns to its original position when tipping over. A low center of gravity adds not only stability to the equipment, but also maneuverability. Now it will take even less time to clean the floor, without tight corners or sudden maneuvers causing the unit to lose its balance.
Not only is this vacuum easy to maneuver, it is quite easy to use in other aspects as well. For instance, the unit comes with a huge .55 gallon dustcup, which lets you vacuum quite a bit before needing to worry about emptying it. And when it does come time to empty the dustcup, it is a simple push of a button away from letting you do so in a hygenic way, without the worry of dust or other debris falling out or scattering about. This in combination with the built-in HEPA filter will be the the most liked characeristics by allergy sufferers, although it will certainly be appreciated by everyone.
Strong Suction Power
When it comes to the actual vacuuming performance, this model is certainly no slouch. Packing 306 air watts of power, the Dyson Ball Animal 2 Total Clean is considered one of the most powerful upright vacuums in its class. This suctioning power is enough to remove even the toughest dirt and pet hair from carpets, and does it all in just one pass, so you won't need to run the vacuum over the same spot multiple times in order to thoroughly clean any spots. The self-adjusting cleaner head provides a tight seal on any type of floor, giving whatever spot is being cleaned the full suctioning power of the vacuum without the risk or dirt being scattered.
This vacuum also comes paired with a number of attachments that will make spring cleaning in larger households a quick and easy job. The stair tool lets you easily clean stairs without having to lift the vacuum up for each step, which is certainly a handy feature to have, as this model is rather heavy. The combination tool lets you clean different areas that just can't be reached by the vacuum itself, and the tangle-free Turbine tool gives you full force suctioning power coupled with rotating brushes to clean the toughest spots. All of these features combined in a single powerful vacuum cleaner make this model one of the best upright vacuum cleaners on the market.

Now you can navigate your way in a crowded room or around the furniture – and not get stuck in a tight place. This unit is also very lightweight, so even if you’re not working out, you’ll be able to handle it quite smoothly.
The FloorRover is smart. In fact, it’s so smart that it can detect the floor type and automatically adjust the cleaning height. Carpet, tiles, or hardwood floors, the ever-present pet hair will be all gone in a flash. Also, no more getting stuck on a rug edge or missing debris on the floor.
Dust or allergens don’t stand a chance if you’re using this vacuum cleaner.

Everything stays trapped inside, and your pet leftovers won’t be flying around causing trouble for your health.
Clean at Any Angle
The FloorRover comes with handy accessories that make cleaning a pleasure instead of a chore. Simply choose from the crevice tool, the dusting brush, or the Pet Turbo, and you’re ready for most of the challenges.
But that’s not all; you can extend the angle and the reach of any onboard tool by using the multi-angle adapter.

Being a bagless vac, the FloorRover includes a dust cup that can be emptied in one click. It’s not too large but quite enough for not unloading it every other minute. On the downside, you’ll probably need to hold the cord up on the handle, as it’s attached rather low and can be a nuisance. However, the cord is extra long at 35 ft., which helps you move the vac around larger rooms.
Overall, this strong and versatile vacuum cleaner will be pure gold for (multiple) pet owners that don’t want to spend their lives endlessly cleaning after the critters.

What Is an Upright Vacuum for Pet Hair?
Did you know that pet hair is the most common trigger of indoor allergies? And if you often experience a runny nose, red eyes, sneezing and some other symptoms, you might probably suffer from an allergy to pet hair. So, if you need the best vacuum to clean up after your lovely pets, you're at the right place. Good vacuums for pet hair are usually much more powerful and maneuverable than usual vacs. Boasting super-strong suction, these vacuums can easily clean your house from pet hair, dander, fur and other sources of dust, dirt, and allergens. They are usually equipped with additional nozzles for pet hair removal and filters that lock in the finest particles. Like usual vacuums, they come in different shapes and sizes. In this review, we compare some of the best canister vacuums, upright vacuums, and handheld vacuums for dog hair. And no matter whether you want to get rid of retriever hair or toy terrier hair, you'll find a suitable option here. So, keep on reading and take your pick to manage that extra hair in your house.
To make caring for the hair of your furry friend a bit easier, we recommend pet owners to consider the best dog shampoos and hair trimmers. And to make the walks with your pet mess-free, you might be interested in waste bags and pooper scoopers.
What Features to Compare
Finding the best upright vacuum for pet hair will depend greatly on your needs. Many of these types of vacuums share many of the same features, while most models may also have some other features that are exclusive to that model. However, some common features will be necessary to compare between different models to make sure that the specific model will meet your needs. Below are some of the most common features of upright vacuums for cleaning pet hair, all of which you will want to check before deciding on a specific vacuum.
The overall power of the vacuum can affect its performance. Although this isn't always true, the higher the power of the vacuum, the stronger the suctioning ability to remove dirt and pet hair. Generally, you will want a powerful vacuum to go along with the other features that the model contains.
Dust Cup Capacity
An important feature of any vacuum is the capacity of the dust cup, which is where dirt and pet hair that has been vacuumed is stored. The larger the dust cup, the more vacuuming you can do before needing to empty it. Vacuums with a larger dust cup can probably handle several full passes over a room before needing to be emptied.
All vacuums of the size and power that are featured here will require the use of the power cord, as these powerful vacuums require more electricity than what most batteries can provide. The length of the power cord will often determine how much of an area of your room you can vacuum before needing to plug it in to another power outlet. Those with a longer cord can allow you to vacuum a larger area before needing to do this.
Upright vacuums rely on a brush to help loosen and remove dirt and hair from a carpet. Those with a stronger and more reliable brush will be able to perform this function better than those with a weaker brush. The strength of the brush will be a very important factor in the overall performance of the vacuum.
A standard vacuum cleaner is great for cleaning floors in an open area, but in order to clean other areas as well as upholstery and ceilings, you will need to use attachments. Most of the vacuums here have attachments included that allow for cleaning those hard-to-reach places. If you require a vacuum to be able to clean certain things such as curtains and upholstery, then you want to make sure it includes the proper attachments.
All of these included features can be easily spotted and verified in our reviews of each of the five best upright vacuums for cleaning pet hair.
How Does an Upright Vacuum for Pet Hair Differ From a Standard Vacuum Cleaner?
Vacuum cleaners that are made specifically for removing pet hair largely work just light a regular upright vacuum cleaner. The main functions that it performs in order to vacuum are using a brush to loosen pet hair and dirt from a surface, while also using air suction to lift the hair and dirt away from the surface and into the dust cup of the vacuum cleaner. These two main functions are pretty much the same as a regular upright vacuum cleaner. However, there are some notable differences in many of the features of a vacuum for pet hair. Here are some of the main aspects of many of the models made for removing pet hair that set them apart from standard vacuum cleaners.
Air Tight Suction
Many of the vacuums meant for removing pet hair feature suction capabilities that are stronger than many standard vacuums. How such a strong suction is created usually has to do with the airtight design of the vacuum head. Preventing air from escaping in any way from a vacuum head helps keep the suction tight, which in turn ensures that the hair and debris are sucked into the vacuum instead of being scattered or dropped back onto the surface.
Tangle Free Brush
Anyone who has owned a standard vacuum cleaner before is sure to have run into the problem of hair getting tangled into the vacuum's brush. This is a very common problem that often plagues standard vacuum cleaners, and can, in turn, lead to issues ranging from reduced performance to damage to the vacuum cleaner. Many of the models made for removing pet hair include brushes that are made to either not tangle very easily, or that have the ability to easily remove tangled hair. How this is accomplished can vary wildly, as many different vacuums for pet hair design their tangle-free brushes in different manners. However, the end result is the same: a much better and hassle-free experience than a conventional vacuum cleaner.
Most standard vacuum cleaners are designed specifically for working on carpets. The nature of such designs often makes them ill-suited for other types of surfaces, especially hardwood or tiled floors. Vacuums for removing pet hair, on the other hand, are usually designed to work on many different types of surfaces, including carpets of varying thickness, hardwood and tiled floors, and even upholstery. How this is accomplished generally depends on the specific model, but most models will include various accessories or attachments that are made to work well on certain types of surfaces. For instance, most models will include a vacuum head attached to a hose that uses strong suction to remove pet hair from upholstery, and many will also include vacuum wands that are used for cleaning other areas not normally reachable by a standard vacuum cleaner, such as corners and ceilings. Many will include various other attachments for other specific purposes.
The above features are the main ways in how an upright vacuum for pet hair works better for cleaning up after pets than a standard vacuum cleaner. Most of us love our pets, and as such, keeping a clean house or apartment is a necessity. If you are a pet owner and struggle with keeping your home tidy and free of pet hair, then getting yourself an upright vacuum for pet hair will definitely increase the cleanliness of your home.
