Best Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaners for Pets

One of the hardest parts of pet ownership is dealing with hair everywhere. Shedding hair steadily collects in corners of the floor, cakes onto furniture, and somehow floats onto every hard surface in the house. We all love our dogs and cats, but pet maintenance can be maddening.

     It’s discouraging just pushing and chasing hair around hard floors with your broom. Also, continually lugging out your regular floor vacuum to maintain the hot spots of hair collection is even more annoying. That’s why cordless stick vacuums are one of the most valuable tools for pet owners. Here are the 3 main reasons why:

  1. They traditionally work on all surfaces
  2. The slim design can get under furniture better than traditional vacuum cleaners
  3. They can help filter out pet dander and dust from your home

HEPA Filtration

     For the health of everyone in your home, we believe #3 is the most important. All of our top picks have HEPA filtration systems (except the Bissell) so almost no dust, dirt, or dander gets blown back into the air. This also eliminated virtually every budget stick vacuum since it’s one of the biggest sacrifices you have to make to save money. On the other hand, whether you have pets or not, HEPA filtration systems should always be a must-have feature on every vacuum in your home. In the long run, your respiratory system will thank you.

Wall Dock

     Another feature that’s essential on stick vacuums is that they’re cordless. Remember, the whole point of having one should give you the ability to do daily cleanups conveniently. Being able to grab your stick vacuum off of the wall-mounted charging dock, suck up debris, and throw it back on the dock is ideal. No restrictions because of cord length and outlet placement.

Supplemental, Not Replacement

     There is one big misconception we should clear up before we get into the nitty-gritty. Many companies that produce this style of vacuums market them as “the ONLY vacuum you’ll need.” While stick vacuums perform great in most situations, deep cleaning carpet is NOT one of them. Unless you have thinner commercial-style carpet or only hard-surface flooring, you’ll still want a traditional upright vacuum cleaner to get that deep-seated dirt.

     If you’re having a hard time justifying getting a second vacuum, remember that time is money and you’ll be saving A LOT of time in the end with a stick vacuum. Their grab-and-go style faster, cleaner, and more efficient at most household cleaning tasks. Depending on how many attachments it comes with you can replace a nice chuck of traditional cleaning tools like:

  • Feather dusters
  • Brooms
  • Blind cleaners
  • Ceiling fan brushes
  • and more…
