Hoover vs Bissell – The Best Vacuum Carpet Cleaner for Pets


Before‌ ‌the‌ ‌vacuuming‌ ‌market‌ ‌was‌ ‌flooded‌ ‌with‌ ‌names‌ ‌such‌ ‌as‌ ‌Shark,‌ ‌Dyson‌ ‌and‌ ‌other‌ ‌Swiss‌ ‌sounding‌ ‌companies,‌ ‌there‌ ‌were‌ ‌only‌ ‌a‌ ‌few‌ ‌American‌ ‌vacuum‌ ‌company‌ ‌royalties.‌ ‌The‌ ‌top‌ ‌two‌ ‌were‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌and‌ ‌Hoover.‌ ‌Before‌ ‌there‌ ‌were‌ ‌features‌ ‌such‌ ‌as:‌ ‌bagless,‌ ‌swivel‌ ‌head,‌ ‌cyclonic‌ ‌technology‌ ‌or‌ ‌even‌ ‌HEPA‌ filters‌ ‌there‌ ‌was‌ ‌only‌ ‌an‌ ‌agitator‌ ‌to‌ ‌stir‌ ‌up‌ ‌dust‌ ‌and‌ ‌a‌ ‌machine‌ with‌ ‌a‌ ‌fan‌ ‌to‌ ‌pull‌ ‌the‌ ‌dust‌ ‌into‌ ‌a‌ ‌container.‌ ‌Before‌ ‌every‌ ‌vacuum‌ ‌advertised‌ ‌as‌ ‌“great‌ ‌for‌ ‌pet‌ ‌fur‌ and‌ ‌dander”‌ ‌the‌ ‌only‌ ‌thing‌ ‌that‌ ‌needed‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌swept‌ ‌up‌ ‌was‌ ‌human‌ ‌messes.‌ ‌Now‌ ‌many‌ ‌homes‌ ‌include‌ ‌messy‌ ‌humans‌ ‌and‌ ‌pets!‌ 

History of the Bissell Vacuum Company

In‌ ‌1876‌ ‌Anna‌ ‌and‌ ‌Melvin‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌had‌ ‌The‌ ‌Crockery‌ ‌Shop‌ ‌in‌ ‌Grand‌ ‌Rapids,‌ ‌Michigan. Melvin‌ ‌was‌ ‌getting‌ ‌tired‌ ‌of‌ ‌sweeping‌ ‌up‌ ‌wood‌ ‌shavings‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌broom‌ ‌and‌ ‌dustpan‌ ‌and‌ ‌started‌ ‌tinkering‌ ‌around‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌fan‌ ‌motor‌ ‌and‌ ‌ended‌ ‌up‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌gadget‌ ‌that‌ ‌a‌ ‌family‌ ‌member‌ ‌liked‌ ‌and‌ ‌requested‌.‌ ‌Before‌ ‌it‌ ‌was‌ ‌over‌ ‌and‌ ‌Melvin‌ ‌passed‌ ‌away‌ ‌in‌ ‌1889,‌ ‌even‌ ‌Queen‌ ‌Victoria‌ ‌of‌ ‌England‌ ‌wanted‌ ‌a‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌sweeper.‌ ‌Anna‌ ‌went‌ ‌on‌ ‌to‌ ‌be‌ ‌the‌ ‌first‌ ‌female‌ ‌CEO‌ ‌in‌ ‌America‌ ‌and‌ ‌until‌ 1925‌ ‌the‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌family‌ ‌still‌ ‌received‌ ‌royalties‌ ‌from‌ ‌sales.‌

The‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌company‌ ‌has‌ ‌given‌ ‌over‌ ‌6‌ ‌million‌ ‌dollars‌ ‌to‌ ‌animal‌ ‌shelters,‌ ‌spay/neuter‌ ‌clinics,‌ ‌pet‌ ‌chipping,‌ ‌animal‌ ‌foster‌ ‌care‌ ‌and‌ ‌has‌ ‌helped‌ ‌reduce‌ ‌the‌ ‌number‌ ‌of‌ ‌rescues‌ ‌by‌ ‌increasing‌ ‌awareness‌ ‌of‌ ‌pet‌ ‌adoption.‌

Bissell‌ ‌also‌ ‌promotes‌ ‌sustainability‌ ‌in‌ ‌their‌ ‌packaging,‌ ‌transport‌ ‌and‌ ‌corporate‌ ‌social‌ ‌environment.‌ They‌ ‌might‌ ‌very‌ ‌well‌ ‌be‌ ‌the‌ ‌reason‌ ‌you‌ ‌can‌ ‌hardly‌ ‌find‌ ‌a‌ ‌portable vacuum‌ ‌cleaner‌ ‌nowadays‌ ‌that‌ ‌doesn’t‌ ‌mention‌ ‌the‌ ‌‘pet‌ ‌hair‌ ‌care‌ ‌and‌ ‌removal‌ ‌feature. The‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌Foundation‌ ‌headed‌ ‌by‌ ‌Cathy‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌is‌ ‌known‌ ‌for‌ ‌its‌ ‌enthusiastic‌ ‌support‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌pet‌ ‌community.‌  ‌Their‌ ‌motto‌ ‌is:‌ ‌‌“Embrace‌ ‌life’s‌ ‌messes‌ ‌with‌ ‌a‌ ‌Bissell‌ ‌and‌ ‌get‌ ‌back‌ ‌to‌ ‌home‌ ‌life.”‌ ‌ 

History of the Hoover Vacuum Company

In‌ ‌Ohio‌ ‌circa‌ ‌1908‌ ‌there‌ ‌lived‌ ‌William‌ ‌Henry‌ ‌Hoover.‌ ‌He‌ ‌met‌ ‌a‌ ‌man‌ ‌named‌ ‌J.M.‌ ‌Spangler,‌ ‌who‌ ‌was‌ ‌an‌ ‌asthmataic‌ ‌and‌ ‌deduced‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ ‌dust‌ ‌was‌ ‌creating‌ ‌respiratory‌ ‌problems‌ ‌for‌ ‌him.‌ ‌He‌ ‌built‌ ‌a‌ ‌dust‌ ‌containing‌ ‌cleaning‌ ‌machine.‌ ‌Before‌ ‌long‌ ‌was‌ ‌making‌ ‌2‌ ‌or‌ ‌3‌ ‌machines‌ ‌a‌ ‌week‌ ‌that‌ ‌would‌ ‌use‌ ‌electricity‌ ‌and‌ ‌suction‌ ‌to‌ ‌eliminate‌ ‌the‌ ‌dust‌ ‌from‌ ‌his‌ ‌surroundings‌ ‌as‌ ‌he‌ ‌cleaned.‌ When‌ ‌he‌ ‌gave‌ ‌one‌ ‌to‌ ‌friends,‌ ‌the‌ ‌Hoover‌ ‌family,‌ ‌they‌ ‌helped‌ ‌him‌ ‌market‌ ‌it.‌ ‌It‌ ‌was‌ ‌called‌ ‌the‌ ‌Hoover‌ ‌Suction‌ ‌Sweeper.‌ ‌By‌ ‌1926‌ ‌a‌ ‌beater‌ ‌bar‌ ‌was‌ ‌added‌ ‌and‌ ‌revolving‌ ‌brushes‌ ‌that‌ ‌vibrated‌ ‌and‌ ‌loosed‌ ‌the‌ ‌embedded‌ ‌dirt.‌ 

Hoover‌ ‌Vacuum‌ ‌Company‌ ‌was‌ ‌sold‌ ‌to‌ ‌Maytag‌ ‌in‌ ‌1989‌ ‌but‌ ‌not‌ ‌before‌ ‌nationwide‌ ‌slogans‌ ‌became‌ ‌successfully‌ ‌popular‌ ‌and‌ ‌heard‌ ‌on‌ ‌radio,‌ ‌TV‌ ‌and‌ ‌in‌ ‌homes‌ ‌all‌ ‌over‌ ‌the‌ ‌country.‌‌ ‌

In‌ ‌1918:‌ ‌“A‌ ‌Hoovered‌ ‌home‌ ‌is‌ ‌as‌ ‌clean‌ ‌as‌ ‌it‌ ‌looks.”‌ ‌1938:‌ ‌“Give‌ ‌her‌ ‌a‌ ‌Hoover‌ ‌and‌ ‌you‌ ‌give‌ ‌her‌ ‌the‌ ‌best.”‌ ‌1977:‌ ‌“America‌ ‌trust‌ ‌Hoover‌ ‌to‌ ‌take‌ ‌care‌ ‌of‌ ‌its‌ ‌homes.”‌ ‌1998:‌ ‌“Deep‌ ‌down‌ ‌you‌ ‌want‌ ‌Hoover.”‌ ‌2008-2013:‌ ‌“Hoover…Nobody‌ ‌does‌ ‌it‌ ‌like‌ ‌you.”‌ ‌Present:‌ ‌“I‌ ‌love‌ ‌my‌ ‌Hoover.”‌
