Best Bissell Vacuum for Pet Hair Revealed:
The BISSELL Cleanview 2254 vacuum is a powerful machine built to tackle pet hair.
It comes with a 25-foot long power cord that automatically rewinds and the vacuum itself is super easy to maneuver thanks to its swivel steering technology.
The vacuum’s head features a main brush as well as two side brushes that allow to easily clean every edge.
This machine is a great choice because it comes with several specialized pet tools, such as the turbo pet brush to be used for example on carpeted stairs.
Its dirt cup capacity is 1.0 liter and the machine is overall very powerful on all types of floors.
The only main downside is the fact that switching floor settings is not that simple, in fact it has to be done by turning a dial located on the vacuum head.
The Bissell 22889 ICONpet stick vacuum is a great choice if you wish to opt for an even more lightweight vacuum that can also be detached to easily clean your car.
The machine features a powerful motor capable to spin at up to 420 miles per hour and a battery that is able to last between 30 to 50 minutes depending on the chosen settings.
The vacuum’s head has been designed in way so that no hair gets tangled and goes straight into the dirt cup.
It comes with various attachments ideal to remove pet hair from both hard flooring and carpet and the vacuum’s head itself features LED lights to help you clean even the darkest of areas.
The dirt cup has a capacity of 0.4 liters and it has been designed with a Smart Seal Allergen System that helps trap fine dust and allergens inside the vacuum.
The vacuum also features a wall mount for easy storage
A fantastic choice if you live in an average size house or you are OK with cleaning in stages while the vacuum’s battery is charging up.

Are Bissell vacuum filters washable?
Most modern vacuum cleaners come with two filters: pre-motor and post-motor.
Pre-motor filters can be washed with water but need to be left out to completely dry before being put back in the vacuum.
Post-motor filters should never be washed. You can remove them and tap out some of the dirt, but eventually all you can do is replacing the post-motor filter when it gets too dirty.
Please refer to the manufacturer’s manual for the particular vacuum you own, prior to doing anything with the filters.
