Because loose pet hair may be the most abundant material on the planet, all you need to do is invent a way to use it for electrical generation and you would become the richest person on Earth. If it went to good use, every dog and cat owner would delight in their pet's constant release of fur. Until then, however, managing their hair can challenge the joy you take in your pets. Fortunately, vacuum accessories help keep your home from exploding with fur. Check out these four popular pet hair tools.
1. Dyson Groom Pet Tool
Dyson developed a great win-win tool, and you don't need to own a Dyson to use it. Since your pets need regular grooming, why not vacuum them while you're at it? With the Dyson Groom pet tool, you vacuum away their loose hair as you brush them. Yes, you may need to train your pets to sit still and like it with a vacuum running nearby, but with a little patience and lots of treats, you can do it. Once relaxed, pets love a good vacuum-assisted grooming. Plus, you save yourself the hassle of having to clean up piles of fur afterward.
The Dyson tool employs a field of metal bristles to loosen fur with each stroke. The vacuum port sucks away the stray hairs. When filled, you clean out the bristle field with the push of a button.
2. Electrolux Beam Pin Comb Attachment
Similar in concept to the Dyson Groom is the Electrolux Beam Pin Comb Attachment. It also works on any standard 1.25-inch hose. Therefore, it's not specific to the Electrolux brand.
The difference, however, is that the Beam Pin Comb features a ring of plastic pins around a central suction port and a hand strap. The strap helps you brush your pet naturally without tiring your hand. Meanwhile, the pins loosen the hair and massage your dog or cat's skin in the process. If your animals love their grooming sessions, they'll really love the pin comb attachment.
3. Hoover Vacuum Cleaner Pet Turbo Tool
Even if your pet enjoys a good brushing with a vacuuming tool, they still leave plenty of fur on your furniture the rest of the time. For easier removal, you can buy a Hoover Pet Turbo Tool. This attachment sports a small head with a rubberized roller brush to dislodge fur that sticks like burs to your sofas, chairs and bedspreads. Quite effective at its job, the Hoover Pet Turbo Tool also fits any brand with a 1.25" hose.
4. Bissell Universal Pet Hair Vacuum Tools
The Bissell Universal Pet Hair Vacuum Tools Kit offers rubberized grippers. One gripper is part of a plastic head, and the other is a flexible, contoured accessory for cleaning the edges of your furniture. The gripper grabs pet hair and lifts it while the hose vacuums it away. The kit comes with two adapters, so no matter your brand of vacuum cleaner or hose size, your Bissell kit should work for you.
