We purchased the Vax power 7 pet vacuum cleaner as a replacement for our aging tesco own brand hoover. I`ve had several budget hoovers (sub £50) and whilst they do a pretty good job to begin with, they end up with poor suction even after cleaning them out. Another important factor in buying this vacuum was that it promised to have excellent suction and a number of additional tools to help remove cat hairs, an important factor in our home as we have two cats.
We paid £100 for our vax from amazon and it was delivered in good time. The hoover comes in a big box along with a number of accessories, namely the main hose and a number of smaller attachments. In use I found that the hoover does a great job of sucking up cat hairs off of our thick pile carpet. As this was the main reason we purchased it we were pleased with the results.
It also comes with a smaller end attachment which has some little brushes in that spin round and round. I use this attachment on our carpeted stairs and find the small size of the head is perfect for this task. It also simple to clean out when its getting full as its bagless, just unclip a few plastic covers and tip the rubbish into a bin.
My only criticism of the vax is that the power cable isn`t quite long enough to get round our house from one socket, but I guess that`s just me wanting to be lazy! All in all this does an excellent job and I couldn`t recommend it enough if you have pets.
My old vacuum was still working but clearly struggling so I got the new VAX Power 7 Pet. I can sum up in one word how well it cleaned the carpets & floors... WOW!
I have three dogs who have very different coat types, retrievers who have softer hair which clings to everything and an African street dog whose hair is very capable of embedding itself into anything it touches, (rather like Christmas tree needles do and you are forever finding them long after Christmas has past). So with the different coat types and three sets of muddy paws coming into the house daily the Power 7 Pet was in for a very tough challenge!
I have a mixture of floor surfaces, some laminate, rugs, vinyl floor covering and mostly carpets. The Power 7 Pet coped with everything thrown at it all floor surfaces and the grit from the paws and dog hair.
The Power 7 Pet was delivered on Thursday morning after I had just cleaned everything with my old vacuum cleaner. Wanting to try out the VAX immediately I set to and cleaned my carpets a second time and was amazed at how much pet hair and grit my old vacuum was not picking up!
I found the VAX Power 7 Pet easy to use and lightweight. It has a 4 litre capacity, more than most, smaller types of vacuum that I have had in the past. It has hepa filters so less fine dust can be blown back into the room,and reduces bateria and allergens. The length of the lead to the plug socket is good as I did not have to keep swapping plug in points around a room and the length of the hose made cleaning the stairs a piece of cake!
I would highly recommend this machine for any pet owning household.
