Pets are furry family! Unfortunately, they also tend to leave pet hair all over the place! If you’re looking for the best robot vacuum for pet hair, then you’re in the right spot. We’ve rounded up a great selection of robot vacuums, and the ones we are featuring today cost less than $400. Not too shaggy! ...er, shabby! 😉
The Ecovacs Deebot M81 Pro is perfect for pet owners because it has a tangle-free deep cleaning option. You will especially fond of that feature if you have a long-haired pet! It also has an extra large dustbin, allowing it to clean uninterrupted for up to 100 minutes. I don't know about you, but I try never to clean that long without a break! I'm glad the robot can handle it.
The Deebot M81 Pro has two options for suction: Main Brush and Direct Suction. Main Brush is the works - the central brush, dual side brushes, and strong suction. That is best used on the carpet to loosen and capture debris. The Direct Suction option is best on non-carpet surfaces (e.g. tile, hardwood, linoleum, etc) with the main brush removed. It uses only suction and avoids tangling with fewer rotating parts in motion.
If you've never encountered the bObsweep brand before, then you are in for a treat! They make several models specifically designed with pets in mind. The Bobsweep PetHair Plus is just what you need to tackle just about any mess. Bob has an impressive 1100 mL dustbin, which is among the largest in the industry. Along with the large dustbin, the PetHair Plus can also use its TurboLift function to boost suction up to 4X so nothing is left behind.
A great feature about the PetHair Plus is that it sweeps, vacuums, UV sanitizes, and damp mops all at once! It can cover about 1000 square feet on a single charge, which lasts a bit more than an hour.
The V8s picks up more pet hair than ever before with enhanced suction strength in MAX mode, which is basically a must-have when cleaning up after pets. The large dustbin can hold up to 3.2 cups of material, and the vacuum adjusts its intake system to accommodate more heavily soiled services. It also has an onboard reservoir for damp mopping as it cleans. It also has a 7-day scheduling feature, so you can plan ahead and let the V8s do its work while you are out for the day.
The V8s is designed to be used primarily on hardwood and tile floors. This probably shouldn't come as a surprise, since you probably don't mop your carpets often. It has handle low-pile carpets, but for best results in any cleaning mode, the V8s is a great machine for solid, flat surfaces.
Honorable Mention: Neato Botvac D5 Connected Robot Vacuum Cleaner
The Botvac D5 Connected falls outside our "less than $400" target, but we wanted to include it because it is a great vacuum for just about everything. It has an ultra performance filter that allows it to capture particles as small as 0.3 microns. That's 333 times smaller than a human hair! Also, it has a square front instead of rounded like most vacuums, so it can get within 10mm of the wall. Pet hair and other dirt has nowhere to hide!
One of my favorite things about Neato isn't necessarily concerned with pet hair specifically, but I'll point it out here anyway: it's Recharge & Resume. Most vacuums do not remember where they left off when vacuuming, but Neatos do. It results in a predictable, efficient cleaning job that I really like. Plus it's Wi-Fi enabled out of the box, so you can manage it with your phone.
