Is it possible for a hand-held vacuum to be the best vacuum for pet hair? Absolutely! Just check out the specifications and features of the Eureka Easy-Clean Corded Hand-Held Vacuum (model 71B) below. It’s compact, has great suction, is available in 3 bright colours (yellow, blue and red) and features the innovative risor visor!
Single most useful feature for cleaning pet hair from carpeted stairs. The visor is a clear plastic cover that you leave down when in normal use mode to cover the brushes. Easily flip up the cover and it makes cleaning vertical areas, e.g. stair risers or upholstered furniture backs a breeze.
Lightweight so easy to carry to those quick clean up jobs which this model is perfect for. Great for giving the furniture a quick clean before guests visit wanting a pet hair free seat! This model weighs just 4.5lb. Compare that to the lighter but portable (battery) Eureka Rapid-Clean (3.8lb) and the heavier, corded Eureka Rapid-Clean (6lb).
The cord is 20 feet long, but easily wraps neatly around the base for storage. The vacuum is only 15 x 7 x 7 inches so will fit easily into a storage cupboard or small space. The crevice tool is conveniently stored on-board for ease of use right where you need it.
Dust cup and filter
These can be removed for ease of cleaning, but must be replaced dry before using again. Do NOT use without them or you will risk damage to the vacuum. When they wear out or if you damage them you can easily buy manufacture replacements.
5.5 amps of power mean this model has great suction and ideal for those quick clean up jobs, stairs, upholstery and even car seats and carpets. Vacuum is bagless so as long as you keep the filter and cup clean you will not experience loss of suction during normal use.
