HOOVER HELP NEEDED


I am putting out a call to all my lovely bloggers to ask if you know of the best vacuum cleaner out there for picking up cat fur.
I have an ancient Dyson and a G Tech Air Ram. the Air Ram was good to start with but is no longer performing well and the Dyson has had it.
I am loathe to buy a new hoover, get it home and find it is useless.

Anyone got a good recommendation?

  1. I bought a Shark a few weeks ago, mainly because of people saying how good it is, I hate it! Wish I could go back to my Dyson. Henry is great but heavy.

  3. As I have mentioned before,I have got 5 cats and I have just given up,lol.Although only Tiara is long haired and fluffy,we still get cat hair every where.On our clothes,cushions although we have a leather settee so that isnt too bad because Ive got a fleece cover on the seating.They have ruined it in other ways though by scratching down the side of it.Like I say...I give up!!...I did read somewhere that damp rubber gloves rubbed over it,gets it up but I dont know if it works.xx

    1. I'd be on my knees all day with rubber gloves Debi, lol
      Love all of them to bits but I hate the fur.

  4. My Dyson's pretty good (cylinder one, less cumbersome than the upright I had a few years ago). Can't say about any others.

  6. Get a Henry hoover - great for cats' hair and easy to move around.

  7. Look up recommendations ( Consumer Reports etc.) on the Internet.

  8. We have upright Dyson and cylinder. We did run a b&b! Cylinder wins hands down. We had up to nine cats once, not from choice, they just happened. Dyson cylinder ace.

  9. The rubber glove definitely works great for furniture. My aunt taught me that trick. I just have a Philips canister. Easier to move around and store since we don't have a lot of space.

    For new and reconditioned vacuums plus money off if you trade in your old vacuum cleaner.

  11. When we had carpet I found that any vacuum with a revolving brush in the part that meets the floor was adequate. As for furniture, though, I have found nothing works better than an old fashioned lint remover - not the sticky tape kind, but the kind made with material with a one-way nap. When you brush the correct direction they'll pick up a lot. Then I finish with damp paper towels (I know, that's not environmentally proper, but I do compost them after). The damp paper towels will also pick up surface dirt without the use of soap. The best thing of all is to prevent hair on furniture by putting sheets or other covers on, but then you have to somehow get most of the fur off the cover before washing it or it felts into place! I love our cats, too, but the fur drives me nuts as well :)

  12. Go to this link. They have reviews of everything, and all the reviews from every magazine. I use it for almost everything I buy.

  13. We have just bought a cordless Dyson and it is brilliant.We havn’t got a cat any more but I am sure it would work.We use it,empty it and put it back on charge.We live in a four bedroomed house and do a clean on a Sunday morning and it has never run out of charge.It is a Dyson v7 Motörhead.We also have a hand held cordless Dyson.Again, great.The new one is so light.

  14. I use sticky tape (sellotape) to pick up the hairs! :)

  15. Hubby bought us a Vax especially for pet hair after a recommendation. It work a treat, but my cat is short haired and with being brushed regularly doesn't tend to malt too much in the house.
    hope you find something suitable for your need.

  16. We have 5 cats too, and 6 dogs as well so hair is a monumental problem. I use a Dyson ball animal upright vacuum. It's the best I've found so far, but I've also heard people swear by a Sharp. For furniture, I use a damp sponge and it works great.

  17. I have no suggestions. Gibbs isn't a huge shedder and I just have a cheap Bissel vacuum

  18. The Henry does a grand job.

  19. None of our vacuums seem to last long because of all the hair. I really can't give any advise, but...
    I love this commercial.

  21. I bought a Meile Four years ago, the one designed for pet hair. Two years ago I decided to try a cordless Dyson for pet (V6?). I bought it from John Lewis on the principle that I could take it back if it wasn’t any good. The Meile is now in the loft and hasn’t been used since the Dyson came in the house.

    Four cats live in this house and the Dyson does a grand job. To be fair I vacuum at least once a day - because there is no cord and no plugging in required it is easy. Have even been know to do a quick vacuum during a commercial break in a TV programme.

  22. What really allows them to melt the hearts of men is the ability to appeal to their
    desires These women can make men hear what they want them to hear and use it to
    capture their hearts. And if not, you will always
    look back with a smile in your heart, that you truly cared for this man and
    you are forever thankful for your time together. Leaving the guy wondering, "Why did she invite me to this and then not call me for a few weeks and then all of a sudden invite me to another thing" is good.
