Animal hair is never easy to be kept at bay – and that becomes even more problematic if we have a white pet with dark furniture. Each strand of hair is visible on the furniture and carpet, which is why we need a powerful solution.
The Dyson Animal Ball 2 upright vacuum is the epitome of what we call “powerful.” Considered by many to be the best vacuum for pet hair, this product has made many pet owners happy with its results.
Introducing the Dyson Ball Animal 2 Vacuum
Featuring a very powerful suction power as well as fluid maneuverability, this vacuum promises to provide one of the best cleaning experiences for pet owners. No matter the toughness of the task, this one is meant to such everything.
This vacuum cleaner is self-adjusting, which means it can seal the suction level in a way to be appropriate for every surface – no matter if it is hardwood, carpet, or tile floors.
The turbine tool is tangle free, and the vacuum also includes a stair tool and a combination tool.
Having a cord length of 35 feet, this should allow you enough coverage areas even for the largest of houses. The bin volume is also fairly generous, with a capacity of 55 gallons.
This vacuum cleaner for pet hair also features a HEPA filter that will trap the allergens, preventing them from going back into the air when you are vacuuming.
Overall, here is a list of all the features that this vacuum cleaner brings:
Overall, this should be a fairly useful tool if you are a pet owner.
The suction power provided by this machine is definitely unrivaled. You can take a box of cereal, smash and crush it into the carpet, and with just one or two passes everything will be clean.
My cat tends to shed a lot of hair sometimes – to the point where I actually think I could make a coat from it. Even though I have to pass it two times on average, the vacuum cleaner picked everything right up.
This Dyson upright vacuum might not maneuver like your average model, but in this case, it’s quite the advantage. Its design may also look a bit bulky, but in fact, it’s fairly light – or at least lighter than it looks.
The suction self-adjusts fairly nicely, and although you can’t make these adjustments yourself, it still adapts pretty great. You do, however, have the option to choose whether or not to use the rolling brush.
The Dyson may also not have many extras, but it does a fairly good job when it comes to taking off cat hair. As a result, there are no complaints.
What Other People Say
Generally speaking, the Animal Ball 2 is highly appreciated by many people in terms of performance. It does a very good job at sucking everything from fine hairs to thick debris, leaving your floor clean without passing it too many times.
Other people that suffer from allergies also appreciate the HEPA filter. The air is clean after every vacuuming session, and the vacuum does a very good job at keeping allergies at bay.
Some people complained, however, that the device is fairly heavy and difficult to maneuver. If you have back problems, this might not be a very good choice for you.
There were also people who were bothered by the fact that you cannot adjust the power of the vacuum cleaner yourself. Most professional vacuums allow you to do that, giving us a better sense of control.
They were all, however, pleased by the fact that you have a cleaning path wide enough to clean a large room. This way, you won’t be stuck vacuuming for too long every day – not even with carpeted areas.
What We Liked
I liked the fact that this vacuum cleaner has enough suction power to clean everything from cat litter to its hairs.
The swiveling head also makes it easy to maneuver – making the cleaning process actually pretty fun.
I also liked that it does a pretty good job without having to depend on countless accessories. Personally, I find it troublesome to continuously change heads each time I move to a new cleaning area.
What We Didn’t Like
I was also fairly bothered by the fact that you couldn’t adjust the suction power yourself.
Most of the time this vacuum hits the mark, but there are also times when there’s room for improvement.
This vacuum cleaner can be bought from the manufacturer’s website for around $500, but I also suggest you give Amazon a try.
Depending on your time of purchase, you can get a fairly good discount. I got 21% off the price when I placed my order.
The Dyson also features a 5-year warranty that covers all parts of the machine – which can also be extended if you pay a certain fee to Amazon. If it breaks, all it takes is a phone call to Dyson.
The Dyson Ball Animal 2 was definitely a purchase worth the money. Despite its simplicity, it does a very good job at cleaning both pet fur and your average daily debris.
The design may look a bit strange, and the control may be a bit out of your control – but it functions efficiently and it keeps the air in your home clean. There is no doubt I would recommend it to every friend looking for a good vacuum for pet hair.
