I’ve picked out eight of the most popular vacuum attachments out there to scrutinize. Don’t worry. I’ll try to be as gentle, honest, and helpful as possible. Let’s dive right in.
The Penn Plax VacGroom kit costs no less than $20 and comes with the right items made for making your pet spruced up and happy.
It includes a brush, shedding comb, grooming tool, flea comb and upholstery. It also comes with a 46-inch hose plus universal adapter.
The FurVac vacuum accessory has a price of less than $25 and it is designed to work with a variety of sizes from the Furminator cat and dog Deshedding units.
It is typically strapped on the Deshedding unit with the help of a vacuum strap and once in position, users can then begin grooming their cats or dogs.
The Power Paw Vacuum Tool from Electrolux and is usually fastened to the vacuum in order to get rid of deep-seated dirt and pet hair.
It provides users both vertical and horizontal cleanups plus it also comes with an adapter which lets the item fit a good lot of known vacuums.
This is an attachment that cannot be used directly on pets though.
The Dyson Groom costs around $30 more compared to previously mentioned products however if you want an attachment that makes for less fussy grooming, then this might be something you need.
All that loose hair from your pet is taken away with the help of its slicker bristles which are angled at 35 degrees and as soon as pressure is provided, bend to a straighter position so it can get within the whole coat.
For budget-conscious pet owners, this is a steal for less than $15.
It fits vacuums with a 32-mm diameter and comes with comfortable TPE material so using it will not make your pet sore.
It also works decently with short or long-haired pets.
Another budget option at less than $15, the GIBTOOL Vacuum Cleaner cat and dog hair brush is recommended for pets with short or long hair.
It helps to get rid of not only hair and dirt, but mites as well.
It is made of PTE material that has a soft feel and provides a nice comforting massage to your pet.
This EcoMaid pet vacuum attachment has a price of less than 15 bucks and it can fit 1/14-inch or 32-mm vacuum devices on a good range of brands.
It allows users to clean underneath fixtures and get rid of unnecessary items without lifting or moving vacuum above it. It can be used to clean up vehicles, upholstery, RVs and boat interiors of cumbersome pet hair.
The first step in finding out whether an accessory is the ideal one for your pet is to have it running first.
So many people make the mistake of buying attachments that aren’t compatible with their vacuums, and, some, through no fault of their own, find themselves victimized by false advertising.
The best way to go around this is to make sure that you check the accessory alongside your vacuum upon purchase so you can still exchange it for something else within the return window.
Just because the attachment fits doesn’t always mean you’re good to go. Issues like suction power, bristle quality, noise, and hair capacity have to be taken into account.
While it may take a bit of time to find the best one for your pets, at least make sure that it does the job of gathering hair effectively, then go up from there.
This was a tough call as all brands seem to have significant cons that affect its performance, however I would have to give the title of best pet hair vacuum attachment to Penn Plax VacGroom Pet Grooming Kit.
Sure, it’s pricier than most but what I love about this product is that even if you need frequent cleanups between brush throughs, this process is made easier by the folding blade that convenient sucks the fur from the comb. No need to pick them off yourself.
Accessories allow our appliances to multitask. In this case, we’re making our vacuums take on another task of taking care of our pet’s shedding.
While it may seem like a chore to find the right one, reviews like this help point you in the right direction. I hope you find the perfect accessory to a better caring experience for your pets and your homes.
