We have a German Shepherd mix, who sheds pretty much all year... a lot more in the spring. This cleaner picks up all the hair and dander that he sheds between brushings. I am extremely pleased with this vaccum cleaner and would definitely recommend it to anyone with, or even without, pets. It really works.
I like the vacuum but I would not recommend it if you are using it on more than one floor.
After 2 weeks of using it hardly picks up!
I guess I purchased a DEFECTED one.
Bought this vaccumm for the following reasons:
1. The Bissel dirt container is solid and has evolved over several generations of bissels. It wont fall open and stays locked.
2. multi-cyclone cleaner
3. Can clean hardwood floors without damage since the brush can be turned off
4. Has only two small filters in front. My home is almost all wood floors, but carpet on stairs and one large area rug. My solution for cleaning the hardwood floors AND the stairs and area rug with the brush turned on. This is a heavy beast but looks like it is built to last for years. They tweaked things including how the hose is held.
I am a woman who HATES housework. I love this vacuum so much, I actually want to clean. Hardwoods & rugs never been cleaner! My wood floors almost look polished it cleans them so well. Wish the hose was a bit longer, but obviously it can't be and still be self-contained.
I loved mine so much, my daughter went out & got herself one. She loves hers, too, except it won't suck up cat liter unless you use hose.
My house is mainly all hardwood with a few decent sized area rugs. The OptiClean vacuum works ok on the rugs but it has a hard time picking up bigger debris such as pebbles and tiny rocks even on the hardwood floors. Instead of picking them up it just pushes them onto the hardwood so I have the run the hose around the rugs to pick up what it kicked off the carpet. The suction power is incredible but it still has a very hard time cleaning the wood floors which is surprising considering how strong the suction power is.
Thanks for your review. It's nice to know you like the suction on your carpets. Please note: make sure to have the height adjustment dial set properly for your floor level to get the best suction.
I have had this Vacuum for a while now and it work ok when cleaning carpet. I have two dogs who shed a lot, a German Shepherd and an Australian Shepherd. I find myself vacuuming a room twice just to get the dog hair off the carpet. It doesn't seem to get the hair and debris near the baseboards well, so I have to pull the hose out and run it near the baseboards. I also noticed that when dog hair is sucked up near the ends of the head that it just spins around on the brush and end up back on the carpet, not in the canister. If you own a pet who sheds a lot, I would personally go with something else.
Thanks for your posting. Your kind of dogs are beautiful! With the extra hair you have to vacuum it would help to periodically clean the brush roller, this way all the hair will go into the dirt cup. It's good to keep the filters clean. Dirty filters will restrict airflow. The foam filters can be hand washed with mild soap. Make sure they are dry before reinstalling.
