Performance (real results)

When vacuuming the carpets and area rugs, this unit remove a lot of hairs and debris. It also has a separate pet hair attachment, although if you have pets who shed a lot, you would be better off with either the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Turbo Plus, Cleanview Rewind Pet Deluxe, or the Cleanview Swivel Pet (listed in price order of high to low, based upon when we last checked).

Although it is not specifically designed for hard floors, it does have a setting on it’s dial for floors. It’s not going to do as great a job as some other models, but it’s good for quick clean ups. Some users do report that it’s a bit loud on tile and hard wood floors.
