Just that - my cordless Dyson isn't any good at picking up dog hair. I bought it before the dog came or I'd have got the pet hair version! Can anyone recommend me a cordless vacuum that will actually do the job please? Thanks!
I found my Dyson cordless was great at first, but continual use with dog hair meant that it didn't last more than a year or two (which represented poor value for money). I have found that with all of the Dysons I have bought - amazing for the first 6 months but within 2 years I had to bin them. I have now given up on them and only use Henry hoovers (for downstairs) and a Miele cat and dog (for upstairs). I am watching this thread with interest as I am not aware of a cordless cleaner that can keep up, long-term, with the amount my 2 dogs shed. I would love a cordless vacuum.
zzzzz I can't remember off the top of my head, I know I cleaned it all out as per a YouTube video so I don't think it was a dirty filter. I think it was the battery (I know I could have probably got them to replace it but I'd just had a baby and I couldn't be arsed to sort it out and then it was too late) but also the suction was less powerful so there must have been another issue. I know you can get them serviced but I think this costs £75 and that's another expense for something that is already quite expensive. I'd rather just pay a one-off cost for a Henry hoover and know that it is going to last for years with zero effort on my part.
If you’re happier with a Henry then you probably made a good choice. Handhelds take quite a battering and will need servicing when they start to fail. It’s a fairly painless procedure. You drop it off at your local service centre (google) and pick it up a few days later. No more effort than dry cleaning.
