Got pet hair? This bagless Hoover vac was built for furry messes, and it's 40% off for Presidents' Day

"New prized possession," reported a five-star reviewer.

We love our furry friends, but the messes they leave behind? Well, let's just say, we didn't think about that when we brought them home. Of course, life is much sweeter with your four-legged family member by your side (or at your feet), but that doesn't mean you have settle for a life full of hair, dander and dirt. Enter the Hoover MAXLife Pro Pet Vacuum, which you can score for just $125 (was $210) during Amazon's Presidents' Day sale. This bagless beauty is a must for pet parents everywhere — and the nearly 7,000 five-star ratings from Amazon shoppers are proof. (But if you want to shop your options, then browse our list of the other Presidents' Day vacuum sales happening right now.)

This thing is a beast at tackling pet hair, dust and dander. And saving 40%? Definitely doesn't suck.

Why is this a good deal?

Our guess: Any pet parent would agree that a problem solver like this one is priceless — but this sale really seals the deal. Right now, you can snag this Hoover wonder for just $125 (that's 40% off), aka the lowest price it's been since Black Friday!

Why do I need this?

It's all in the name: This high-powered vac is made with dog and cat lovers in mind. Pet hair and dander is tough to get out of carpet, rugs and upholstery, but this vacuum's attachments — a pet upholstery tool, crevice tool, dusting brush and 13-foot cleaning extension — tackle the most stubborn messes from the ground up.

But let's get back to the machine itself. Swivel and steer it around furniture and into even the smallest nook and crannies (ya know, where your pup likes to hide). It works on hardwood, tile, carpet, you name it. Just switch the brush roll on or off, depending on the floor type.

Clean house with this savvy swizzler, which has racked up nearly 7,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. (Amazon)

Cordless vacs are convenient — that is until they run out of juice halfway through your cleaning session. This one has a 30-foot cord, giving you plenty of room to roam and the peace of mind that it won't conk out. The supersized dirt cup holds up to 1.5 liters of debris, which is noticeably larger than most bagless options (looking at you, Bissell).

It's not just about your floors and furniture, though. This vacuum has a HEPA filter, which removes 99% of the finest dust and particles. That means it pulls double duty and also cleans the very air you breathe. Talk about a win-win.

What reviewers say

Don't just take our word for it: Thousands of Amazon shoppers have gushed about this vacuum, with one reviewer calling it their "new prized possession."

"The extensions all are stored right on the vacuum so it’s amazing to use," the same happy shopper, who has "three cats and a dog," wrote. "Highly recommend for pet people."

Could nearly 7,000 Amazon shoppers be wrong about this vacuum? We think not.

Another raved about the extra-long cord. "With my old vacuum, I would get so annoyed because I was either accidentally pulling the plug out of the outlet or having to stop what I'm doing to change to a closer outlet just to finish a room. With the Hoover I found myself able to do an entire room and sometimes start into another room all without having to change outlets. Seems silly to rave about but it saved me time and frustration," wrote another impressed shopper.

But it's the vacuum's powerful suction that gets the most attention — and rightly so. "Every vacuum I've bought says it can also vacuum hard floors, which is usually an eye roll-inducing joke. This one actually cleans my laminate floors without scattering stuff all over," one long-haired cat owner wrote. "It also cleans very close to the edges so I don't have to whip out the attachments but I'm looking forward to using those, too."
