I've been looking for a handheld vacuum for a while. I use the attachments of my regular vacuum cleaner to clean my couches, dog beds, and other furniture. It works just fine, but I wanted something small that I could take out for occasional cleanings without having to get my large vacuum out of the closet. I've been testing the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser to see how effective it would be on the shed fur in my home.
Dealing with shed dog hair is one of the few drawbacks to owning a pet. Long-time dog owners already know how tough shed fur is to remove once it works its way down into your carpet or gets stuck in the upholstery of the furniture.
I need a handheld vacuum that is light enough to carry around from room to room, but heavy-duty enough to suck the fur out of the upholstery in my home. I also need a product that has a large dustbin, so I don't have to empty it every few minutes.
Did the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser meet my needs? Was it effective as well as affordable?
I'll give you all the details in this product review.
Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Handheld Vacuum Review
It also has a 16-foot cord, so it's great for cleaning upholstery, stairs and vehicles. The dirt receptacle holds about 1/4 gallon of debris.
I have 3 dogs and 6 cats, so I knew that finding a handheld vacuum that would stand up to their shed hair would be a challenge.
I've tried a few in the past, but none of them really impressed me.
The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser features a specialized nozzle made of rubber. It attracts pet hair to pull it out of carpet and upholstery.
It has worked very well for the pet hair in my home, but we don't have any long-haired pets.
I will say that my daughters and I have long hair, and long human hair will get stuck to the nozzle from time to time.
The suction level hasn't seemed to decrease over the past 2 months that I've been using the vacuum.
It seems to be just as effective now as it was when I first got it.
Overall, I've been extremely pleased with the effectiveness of the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser handheld vacuum.
It weighs just under 5 pounds, so it's light enough to carry around your home.
The handle is comfortable, and I don't suffer hand fatigue while using it.
It's also small enough to fit into all the little nooks and crannies in my furniture and vehicles.
You can purchase this handheld vacuum on Amazon for $36.99. It's affordable on any budget, and very effective.
For the price, I did not expect this vacuum to be very impressive.
I'm pleased to say that I was wrong, and I definitely think it's great value for the money.
