Winter is coming and that means that here in the Southwest, we’re all going to start leaving windows open all day and turning off that expensive air conditioning. In the East, you’re going to start closing windows up and turning on the heat. All of this equates to dust and fur throughout the house - no matter where you live.

Well, we just found a product that’s going to make your lives a lot easier: The BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser® vacuum.

The life of a vacuum is not an easy one here in the Southwest. Shedding season is all year long in our multi-pet home and we have a lot of carpet. This means we burn through vacuum cleaners that can’t keep up with the workload.

The BISSELL® Pet Hair Eraser® is developed from the ground up by pet parents for pet parents, which means they know what they’re doing when it comes to fur.

We received a sample for review, but it has not impacted our view or opinion and we have not been compensated to write this review. All views are our own. When possible, we use affiliate links in our posts. Photos credit: Bissell.

The best thing about the BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser is that it not only works on carpet, it comes with a bunch of attachments that make cleaning so easy it’s almost scary. So what do we love best? Here’s a look…

Bissell Knows Fur

There’s a lot to love about this vacuum - and the cyclonic spooling system is just one of the features. This vacuum also has a crevice tool lit up by LEDs so you can see those areas where pet hair loves to gather and actually remove it without a problem.

Remember the days of hair wrapping around your vacuum and choking it to death? Those days are past. The Tangle-free brush roll is the hero of this system - it has a patented Cyclonic Pet-Hair Spooling System™ for a hands-free, no-tangle vacuum experience.

The quick release wand comes with multiple tools (that all attach very nicely to the vacuum so you don’t have to go hunting for the tools).

The Pet Hair Eraser features a Tangle-Free Brush Roll which is amazing because the fur doesn’t tangle around the wheels while you’re vacuuming. It also features a patented Cyclonic Pet-Hair Spooling System™ for a hands-free empty experience.

This vacuum is super maneuverable. It only weighs 18 lbs, less than half that of a container of cat litter! So you can do just about anything with it. It’s powerful too, with an 8.5 amp motor.

Bissell Knows Multiple Level Filtration System

This model has a SmartSeal™ Allergen System with Febreze® Pet Odor Eliminator™ Filter that helps trap allergens inside the vacuum and eliminates pet odors as you vacuum. However, you don’t have to use the Febreeze filter (we found it to be slightly too much for us), so we went with the original filter. It works so well on Arizona dust!

And, it eliminates the odor of pets while it cleans up pet hair. The Pet Hair Eraser comes with a SmartSeal™ Allergen System and it contains an extra Febreze® Pet Odor Eliminator™ Filter that helps trap allergens inside the vacuum and eliminates pet odors as you vacuum. We found that it worked a little too well, and so we changed it out for the standard filter after our first vacuum - you’ll have to find which method you prefer because everyone is different. I just love that we have an option!

Bissell Knows Specialty Tools

One of the neatest things about this vacuum is the LED-lit crevice tool so you can find the hidden dirt. I’m not sure why we haven’t seen this before because it’s really a great feature if you keep your home on the dark side. It helps you find and eliminate fur and dust where you didn’t find it before.

It also features a Pet TurboEraser® Tool that helps you remove embedded hair from carpets and upholstery by pulling it from the fibers - pretty amazing. The Pet Hair Eraser is designed to make any pet owners life a breeze. Shedding season doesn’t have to send shudders of fear through you any more.

If you have a pet with a double-coat (like the huskies and malamutes and retrievers) you don’t have to spend hours on your hands and knees with a window squeegee pulling hair out of the carpet in great big balls - the Bissell is designed with us in mind.

Finally, it allows you to empty the tank without touching the underside of the tank. Just press a button to a release all the dust and dirt and fur that it gathers.

This is an excellent vacuum for pet parents. It’s very easy to use, has great maneuverability,and is lightweight enough to lift up stairs or carry around the house. It even has a limited 5 year warranty!
