If you have carpet in your house, you find yourself vacuuming the entire area and filling your bag or canister with a mass of fur. This happens when you have a cat of dog as an extended member of the family. When you check your carpet after cleaning, you get surprised to still see stray pet hairs. When will you ever have a fur-free carpet?
According to www.bestpethairvacuumguide.com, weak suction and airflow is often caused by obstruction in your cleaner’s system. Check first your bag or canister if it’s been full already, or check the hose if there isn’t anything stuck up. If your machine has adjustable roller brush, don’t forget to change it accordingly. Malfunctioned brush may be a cause of loose parts or broken/slipped belt that may only need replacement.
Before you decide on buying a new vacuum cleaner, make sure that the problem really lies on your current vacuum cleaner. Remember the main functions a vacuum cleaner should have, powerful suction, airflow and dynamic brush. If you find these functions are weak, your job will not be excellent, for sure. However, check on your machine first because you might have only missed some maintenance.
So, which is which, upright or canister type vacuum cleaner? Generally, upright vacuum cleaners are better when it comes to suction power. However, with the various vacuum cleaners available now in the market, performance varies. To make sure you are getting the right pet hair vacuum cleaner is to do your research, when you prefer a specific brand or model. Consumer Reports and other organizations that rate vacuum cleaners have separate testing category for pet hair. This information here might help you prevent purchasing cleaners with low performance. Another way is to ask your family and friends who also have pets regarding what vacuum cleaners they use. If they are satisfied with the performance, then you might as well consider it.
After doing all the troubleshooting and still find no cure to your problem, then that’s the time to purchase on a new item. Always remember to look into vacuums designed for pet removal and those that have powerful suction and airflow. The question now is how to identify all those manufacturer’s claims are true. Don’t get confused with the different amps or amperes value of a vacuum cleaner. It only indicates its electrical power. It doesn’t follow that the more power it consumes, the greater suction and airflow it has.
