Since pet hair is one of the trickiest things to clean around the home, most pet owners need to get a vacuum like the Hoover Platinum LINX Pet Cordless Hand Vacuum that’s suited for the task of removing pet hair.
This particular Hoover vacuum has a unique design, since it allows all of its attachments to ‘pivot 25 degrees when in use,’ something that allows the vacuum to maintain near-complete contact with most surfaces.
It also makes this Hoover pet vacuum cleaner much easier to maneuver around—and, that’s definitely something that most users will like to hear about.
The Hoover Platinum LINX Pet Cordless Hand Vacuum is known to be capable of removing pet hair from various surfaces, including chairs, tables, stairs and various types of flooring. It’s naturally also capable of removing dirt and other debris.
The main features of this Hoover vacuum is its attachments, all measuring about 6.4 inches wide. It also includes what’s known as a crevice tool, which folds out of the device from underneath the vacuum’s head. The aforementioned external attachments are a motorized brush roll (for carpets), a pet upholstery tool (for removing hair from upholstery) and the dusting brush tool (self explanatory).
Other important features include its two stage filtration system, which employs a pre-screen and cloth filter to thoroughly filter debris and dirt picked up by the vacuum. The cyclonic technology employed in this vacuum also keeps the filter cleaner than comparable models, ultimately making the vacuum operate more efficiently.
On bare floors, this Hoover pet vacuum cleaner is best used to clean hard to reach corners and edges of rooms, since many larger vacuums can’t reach those areas.
On carpets, it performs great, as the included brush roll attachment efficiently picks up dirt, debris and various instances of pet hair. Most people actually prefer the brush roll attachment for cleaning up pet hair, since the bristles are strong enough to pick up pet hair before it accumulates on flooring or furniture.
On upholstery, it also performs relatively well, thanks to the vacuum’s included attachments. The only thing that this vacuum can’t do well is properly vacuum leather. It’s also not a dedicated floor cleaner, since it’s best suited for spot cleaning jobs.
Pros and Cons
The brush tool is more or less the best attachment, as it serves multiple purposes for vacuuming dirt, debris and pet hair around the home. Each attachment pivots 25 degrees when attached to the handheld vacuum, making it easier to operate the device. Its performance and features make it a great vacuum for many spot cleaning jobs.
It’s not the best vacuum for dedicated cleaning. It also can’t handle vacuuming heavier accumulations of pet hair, making it more suited for lighter applications. The vacuum is also more suited for flatter flooring, as contoured flooring might make it difficult to work properly.
The Hoover Platinum LINX Pet Cordless Hand Vacuum is one of many handheld vacuum models that best suit the ‘harrowing’ task of removing pet hair from various places in the home. While it’s not the best vacuum for some jobs, it’s good enough for removing pet hair from various places on a regular basis.
