Some vacuums include equipment or come specially equipped with features that can help you when cleaning your hardwood, vinyl, and tile floors. Some of these vacuums feature an on/off switch for the vacuum’s brush or a bare-floor setting. These settings are typically set at a very low-height setting for uncovered floors.
For pet hair, you need strong suction and the perfect attachments. These vacuums were consumers’ top for bare floors and pet hair:
Best Hard Floor Vacuum under $50
The BISSELL PowerEdge Pet 81L2T is tops for picking up pet hair. Reviewers note that it will help you win the pet hair battle! They say that is it lightweight, so it’s easy to carry it from room to room, as well as up and down stairs. For a smaller vacuum, reviewers say it has amazing suction.
This stick vacuum was made with a v-shapes front edge that pulls the pet hair into the vacuum, rather than simply pushing it around, as other vacuums tend to do.
Reviewers say this vacuum never clogs, either. The vacuum cleans right up to the baseboards, easily gets dirt out from under beds, and even fits under the edges of your furniture. It will pull pet hair right out of your corners and from around chair legs–there’s nowhere this vacuum can’t clean!
Even better, if you have bare floors, consumers say it is perfect to use on all types of bare flooring, from laminate to hardwood to vinyl and tile. Emptying the PowerEdge is simple, too, no fuss, muss.
Top Tile Floor Vacuum to Buy
The Hoover Corded Cyclonic Stick Vacuum is another stick vacuum that gets high marks from reviewers. They say this powerful vacuum just takes a few minutes to set up and has a range of settings. To go from one setting to another you simply toggle a switch.
The Hoover does not come with accessories, but it does a great job of getting into hard to reach spaces and corners even without them. It’s the perfect vacuum for anyone with stairs, as it is light and easy to carry.
Pet owners will love how the Cyclonic’s rolling brush quickly and easily picks up dog or cat hair. The vacuum can be easily emptied, too. Reviewers love the transparent dirt cup which allows you to see when the cup is full.
It easily vacuums under your furniture, too, so you can get all of that pet hair! Reviewers note that it has a very long cord, so no more unplugging to go from room to room. The Cyclonic is also very small when folded up, so you can store it nearly anywhere!
Reviewers with bare floors say the Cyclonic is tops for those, too. It won’t damage your hardwood and picks up all of the dirt without simply blowing it around. This lightweight vacuum is very quiet, too.
Best Multifloor Upright Vacuum on the Market
The Shark Navigator Lift Away is another top choice for those with both pet hair and bare floors. Reviewers note that the Shark Lift Away is comparable to a Dyson, but at a much more affordable price.
Consumers say the Shark has excellent suction and that the suction can actually be adjusted depending up on what type of floor you’re vacuuming.
Reviewers do note that the dust canister has to be cleaned often, because the suction is so good (it picks up dirt you never knew you had!) However, they do say that the dust cup is very large and empties easily.
The Shark is easy to assemble and comes with a HEPA filter. This is perfect for anyone with allergies, or anyone worried about getting the pollutants out of their air. It’s also bagless, saving you money in the long run.
This vacuum has a 30-foot long cord so it’s easy to clean your entire house! It also has a swivel head, which makes it easy to maneuver around furniture and get into all of those hard to reach places.
Reviewers say it is lightweight, too, with a ‘Lift Away’ mode. In ‘Lift Away’ mode the Shark weighs just eight pounds, making it easy to carry up and down stairs. They also say that the vacuum is very quiet!
When you clean your bare floors, simply turn the beater bar off, to keep your hardwood floors safe from scratches. The Shark comes with an additional pet hair accessory, to help you pick up pet hair on furniture. This small vacuum is perfect for small spaces, as it stores very easily.
