Hoover PowerDash Pet vs Pet Advanced: Which To Get?

You’d consider the Pet Advanced if you want a model that as the name suggests, has some advanced and additional features (and a different design) compared to the standard Pet model

Additional Information To Consider For These Carpet Cleaners

Some users may find this is additional information worth their consideration:

– Be aware these are compact carpet cleaners, and consider the size of the water tanks

With these things in mind, they are probably more ideally suited to cleaning smaller areas/spaces


– To reduce pet hair getting trapped/stuck in the BrushRoll, it may help to vacuum the cleaning surface to pick up majority of pet hair before using the carpet cleaner.

Otherwise, you’ll might have to manually remove a lot more hair from the BrushRoll


– Be aware of how the BrushRoll is accessed for each machine.

Specifically, be aware of whether you have to unscrew screws, or, whether you can access the BrushRoll from the front of the cleaner


– Cleaning solutions bottles, tools, and attachments may come separately – check this at time of purchase


– Warranties for each carpet cleaner may vary

It can depend on the model, country and seller 

For example, the Pet model may have a 1 year warranty through some sellers, whilst the Pet Advanced model’s warranty might differ

Check both the warranty and return policy through the seller and manufacturer prior to purchasing
