My wife and I have a border collie that sheds a lot. Although we owned several vacuum cleaner brands, nothing seemed to work. When guests would visit, we would have to vacuum the carpet and then rake the dog hair out witrh a pet slicker brush. We thought we whould have to shell out $500 for one of those new high tech brands, but my wife remided me that we had owned our original Hoover for over 20 years. I began to research Hoover online.
Buying a vacuum cleaner can be confusing because there are a lot of different models that use the same technology - even Hoover makes a lots of models that use the WindTunnel technology. I read a lot of online reviews and settled for a model that users raved about for pet hair removal. The model we selected was one of the less expensive Hoover models but had the separate lighted pet hair tool which we really needed. Sears had the model on sale this summer for $110 so we purchased one and think it is the best purchase we have made.
The Hoover WindTunnel is the best vacuum cleaner we have ever owned. You can feel the power when you first turn it on and the clean indicator flashes to green when the carpet is really clean. The light is actually bright enough to help you see. A handy Pet Hair attachment helps you clean upholstered furnitiure and really gets into the corners. You have your choice of HEPA Filter bags or less expensive paper bags. An indicator light lets you know when it is time to change bags. Changing bags and using the attachments are simple tasks so you may actually do them. It is a little noisy, but who cares. No more pet hair!
