As much as pet owners love their pets, they’ll all admit to one thing: they equally hate cleaning up their furry little friends’ hair, on a regular basis. Shedding can be a true nightmare for any pet owner and it seems like that hair is everywhere and you can never get rid of it completely. And who wants to vacuum 24/7 just to keep pet hair under control? That’s where robot vacuums come in and they can make your life so much easier.

Robot vacuums are smart, small, they can fit almost anywhere, they can be programmed to vacuum on their own at specific set intervals and they can recharge themselves. It almost sounds too good to be true. And it can be, as long as you pick a quality product, because not every vacuum cleaner is equally efficient. You have to choose a vacuum with a decent bin capacity, because pet hair accumulates very fast. It has to have proper brushes and rollers and a good air filtration system.

Here are the best robot vacuums for pet hair:

The iRobot Roomba 890. This one remains one of the best robot vacuums for pet owners. It has WiFi connectivity and voice control (it works with Alexa and Google Assistant).
