The Best Sebo Vacuum for Pet Hair

Sebo has some fantastic models available which are exceptional for collecting pet hair on all different types of floor surfaces. Sebo is renowned for their innovation which reflects in its models; they are stylish and robust and made to last. 

The Sebo X7 model is a powerful vacuum cleaner with an 890w motor, making picking up hair and dust a breeze. The Sebo X7 comes with a variety of accessories to assist with awkward areas which collect pet hair that can be hard to clean. 

The generous 10-metre cable enables you to cover larger areas without the need for changing plug sockets, great for open-space kitchens/diners and also large office spaces.  

Why is pet hair hard to vacuum?

Pet hair is one of the hardest types of hair to vacuum. Hair can get very easily grounded into carpets due to static electricity, making it nearly impossible to vacuum. It’s recommended to clean carpets and upholstery twice a week if you’re a pet owner, but this would depend on the type of pet you own. 

Long-haired pets, as we know, can malt excessively in different climates. If only we had to vacuum twice a week, then malting season would be a walk in the park! Brushing your pets frequently will reduce the amount of time on vacuuming and keeping pet bedding clean will also help.

Investing in a good pet vacuum will lighten the load even more! 

What makes a vacuum cleaner good for pet hair?

Power is what is needed in a vacuum to help reduce the amount of pet hair in your home. Invest in a vacuum cleaner that is powerful enough to pick up even the tiniest amount of hair. This will help you keep on top of the pet’s hair and reduce the number of allergies. 

Whilst looking for a vacuum, ensure that you purchase one with a floor brush head. This will assist with the collection of pet hair; just remember to keep on top of cleaning the brushes to avoid any blockages or loss of suction.

The crevice and upholstery nozzle is by far the best attachment for picking your pet’s hair. This gets in-between cushions on couches with ease, collecting all the hair with little effort. These tools have been extremely well designed to work with vacuum cleaners for fantastic results.

The stair and upholstery turbo brush is an excellent accessory which contributes to a pet hair-free home. It’s easy to attach and works wonders on stairs and cushions. It’s small enough to use for cushions, curtains and sofas, and a great size for stairs too. 

Both the Sebo Automatic X7 and Sebo Felix pet include the nozzle, and also an extendable hose to get to the hard-to-reach areas; proven excellent for stairs and slim enough to reach down the side of cupboards.

Are Sebo vacuums good for pet hair?

Yes, Sebo vacuums are outstanding for picking up pet hair and are also hard wearing, hence their 5 years manufacturing warranty. 

They have excellent manoeuvrability due to the swivel heads, which have been introduced on most newer models, and a large up to 5.3L bag capacity, reducing time and money spent on emptying the vacuum bag.

Sebo has designed a capsule air freshener suitable for their vacuums to help reduce the unpleasant odour of pets, leaving a pleasant citrus scent throughout your home, whilst keeping your vacuum smelling fresh too.

Most modern models also have S Class filtration. To meet S Class filtration standards, they have to remove 99.97% of 0.3 microns. The Sebo vacuum cleaner with S Class Filtration will remove 100% of particles of 1 micron.  

Airborne particles are usually described as microns – one Micron is 1/1000mm. This proves that Sebo technology works effectively at removing dust particles.  

Electrostatic filtration uses micro-fibres that attract dust particles from the air stream. The filter material has an open texture, which allows excellent airflow for better suction. The Sebo isn’t just fantastic for pet hairs, it’s also amazing at collecting dust too!

Overall, Sebo knows how to make a vacuum cleaner that performs under pressure and is robust to tackle just about anything.
