Are robot vacuum cleaners good for pet hair?

The pets are great. But, One of the worst parts of pet ownership is keeping up with the sheer amount of fur your dogs or cats shed daily. Depending on how much your pet sheds, you could sweep and vacuum in the morning and in the evening, come home to find enough fur around your home to make an entirely new pet. 

If this situation sounds resonant, maybe it's time to get a robot vacuum designed to remove pet hair, along with other dirt, from your home's floors. These automated cleaners can be set to run on a schedule, so the only thing you have to do is occasionally empty its dust bin. A good rule of thumb is, the bigger the battery (and the longer the battery life is), the better the cleaning job.

Since the number of robot vacuums used as a cleaner on the market has exploded over the past few years, the trick has become narrowing down which one is the best for you. Nowadays, some robots respond to voice commands and even one that doubles as a wet mop. But to narrow down which cordless ones are the best at cajoling cat hair from carpet or cleaning summer sheddings from your hardwood floors, you need to test them out first.

Because we love a clean home as much as you do, we've tested dozens of robot vacuums for pet hair since 2014. In our tests, we learned that dealing with fur on your floor is about three things: navigation, agitation, and powerful suction. The best robot vacuums can find their way around a room, root pet hair out of carpet fibers, and vacuum it up.
