Best Vacuum For Pet Hair & Allergies TESTS - Dyson vs Shark vs Bissell vs Sebo

welcome to our competition to see which

is the best vacuum cleaner for pet hair

and pet owners in general we put these

vacuums through about 16 tests on things

that are important for pet owners like

pet hair pickup deep cleaning and

filtration and gave them scores based on

the results we have a lot to do so links

in the description for current prices

and our individual reviews on each

vacuum and let's get started first a

little about our competitors and why I

chose them we have the Kenmore Elite

which we chose because of its really

high rating on Consumer Reports the SIBO

Felix one which is the most expensive

vacuum in this competition and the

darling of mini vacuum enthusiasts the

sharp rotator true pet which shows up on

many lists of best vacuums for pets

the Bissell pet hair eraser which

bissell says they engineered for homes

with pets and has a special brush that

resists pet hair tangles of all the

shark duo claims we chose the new shark

apex zero M because it's currently the

only shark dual clean with zero m

technology which like the Bissell

prevents pet hair tangles on the brush

and finally we have two Dyson's the

dyson multi-floor 2 and the Dyson v10

absolute cordless vacuum which is one

our best cordless vacuum competition and

is the only cordless vacuum that cleans

good enough and has a long enough

battery life to compete at this level so

let's start with the power here we

measured suction as well as air flow at

the hose and at the cleaner head we then

added the numbers and found that the

Kenmore Elite is leading with pretty

much a three-way tie for second place

with pick up tests we tested all types

of debris from fine debris like sand to

medium and even extra-large debris but

with an emphasis on pet hair pick up on

both hard floors and carpet here the big

winners were the shark apex and the

Dyson v10 absolute in part because of

their amazing hard floor performance

with their soft rollers but the apex is

basically unparalleled with both hard

floor and carpet pick up some quick

points on the losers in this area the

dyson multi floor 2 was not good at all

on hard floors with pet hair or other

debris and the bissell was only decent

with pickup and it also has a pretty

major blind spot due to the belt beam

near the middle of the roller the carpet

deep clean test where we rub sand deep

into the carpet is done on a pretty

thick medium pile carpet so it's

actually two tests in one when we tested

cordless vacuums the v10 was the only

one to get a perfect 100 in this test

and I rubbed the sand even

/ in this test but even so there were

four perfect scores with the apex

getting 98 the CBO Felix and Kenmore

were the only ones with a slightly lower

score here at 92 and 90's far as thick

carpet performance the main loser was

the Dyson multi-floor - which was

incredibly difficult to push on thicker

carpets and it stalled out several times

the shark true pet also stalled out a

few times on thick carpets but at least

with the shark it has a switch which

reduces the suction for thick carpets

and when we tested it with its thick

carpet settings selected it ran

perfectly all the others passed this

test with no issues so here are the

results for these two tests two other

tests that are important for pet owners

is the filtration and the attachment set

with the filtration that kenmore elite

shark apex Dyson v10 and shark true pet

all had sealed systems with hepa filters

and passed our test with a perfect score

the SIBO and Bissell have sealed systems

but not HEPA filters and the Dyson

uprights have never really done well

with this test presumably because of a

bad design around the seal of the hepa

filter so here are the filtration

results with the attachments the shark

troupe had Envy 752 and the Dyson v10

came out on top with among other useful

tools for pet owners they have a really

cool motorized brush included in the

base model they work well on upholstery

or stairs the apex has one of these

motorized tools available as an optional

upgrade but doesn't come with a base

model some of the others come with

similar tools only suction powered

instead of independent motors like the

Bissell and the Kenmore though the

Kenmore tool was really prone to clogs

and like the apex the dyson multi floor

tube base package has an optional

suction based tool sold separately with

the weight ease-of-use and

maneuverability tests vacuums like the

Kenmore Elite lost big as its incredibly

heavy and not maneuverable at all the

Bissell also lost ground here for being

just plain hard to use the Sharks picked

up points here for having the lift away

mode for suction based tasks and the

powered lift away mode for lightweight

vacuuming and getting under

hard-to-reach places the v10 also got a

lot of points here for being both

maneuverable and very lightweight we

also found that the anti-tangle

technology of the shark apex 0m and the

bissell pet hair eraser really did work

they didn't get any pet hair wrapped

around the brushroll during all of our

tests and they got 30 points each for

this really helpful feature there were

many other things we factored in like

crevice pickup test cord length and of

course the current list prices were they

all got points inversely proportional to

their costs we added it all up and here

are the results

the shark apex 0m with dual clean one

with the shark true pet and the Dyson

beat an absolute coming in right behind

it I should say that some of these

vacuums are pretty pricey so along with

the other links to our individual video

reviews and prices in the description I

will also include a short list of our

favorite more budget-friendly vacuums
