If you have cats or dogs, then you know how hard it can be to clean the pet hair in your house. It gets into your carpets, and it gets stuck on your laminated or hardwood floors, it’s hard to remove from your sofas and even your car seats. Sweeping and scrubbing don’t help.
The only thing that works are vacuum cleaners designed specifically to clean pet hair. As with anything, some of these vacuum cleaners work well, and others fall short of the promises. I’ve tried out the Eureka NEU562A vacuum cleaner and was pleasantly surprised at how effective it was, especially when it came to cleaning different surfaces.
I’ve tried, tested, and written this Eureka NEU562A review in the hopes that it will save you the time and trouble of testing out multiple appliances without finding one that matches your needs. The Eureka brand has been around since 1909, and they’ve even won awards for their cleaning prowess, so they know a thing or two about spotless homes.
They make stick and upright vacuum cleaners. As a pet hair cleaning tool, their upright vacuum cleaner is one of the best. The bagless cleaner works well on carpets and hard floors. The materials and quality the vacuum cleaners are made with are high-quality thanks to a team of engineers who continuously work to test and improve their products.
Features of Eureka NEU562A
Moves around easily
If you’re going to be using your vacuum as a multi-purpose cleaner – one that moves from surface to surface and room to room, then you need to be able to move it around your house with minimal effort.
The swivel steering allows the Eureka NEU562A Upright Vacuum to clean under furniture, around hard-to-reach corners, and it moves from surface to surface effortlessly.
After using it for a while, some vacuum cleaners lose their suction power. Either dust and debris get stuck in the hose, or the fans lose power and aren’t able to create sufficient negative pressure to be able to move the dirt through properly.
The Eureka has a multi-stage cycle system, so it never loses power. I’ve done the entire house with it multiple times, and the suction is just as strong by the time I’ve finished.
Floor to Carpet Cleaning
The easy-glide big wheel technology allows the vacuum cleaner to move easily from hardwood floors to carpets and even tiles. I started cleaning in the kitchen. My youngest had spilled some cereal earlier, and although I’d given it a quick clean.
I needed to pick up the strays with a vacuum cleaner, and I wanted to test this one out on tiles. I was not disappointed. It suctioned up the stubborn pet hair floating around and easily suctioned up other dirt, debris, and sand that had been brought in throughout the day.
From the kitchen, I moved to the living room, which is mainly hardwood floors but accented with a thick rug. The Eureka easily cleaned both surfaces with minimal adjustment. The amount of dust that came from the carpet was a real surprise! I regularly clean, so for so much dirt to be coming out must mean that my usual vacuum cleaner wasn’t doing a great job.
I’m not a huge fan of bags. Having to buy more bags and replace it all the time gets costly, and all the dust that flies out when you remove the bag can be frustrating. With containers, all you do is remove the container, empty it out, and put it back in. It’s far more economical and environmentally friendly.
2-in-1 Upholstery tool, pet turbo brush, 16-inch crevice tool
Every good vacuum cleaner comes with a decent set of accessories, and this one is no exception. The upholstery tool is perfect for getting those tougher pet hairs out of sofa cushions.
The turbo brush is great for a quick clean and works on carpets, tiles, and hard floors. With the crevice tool, I could get to the cobwebs stuffed into the ceiling corners, and the dust settled between the corner and the sofa.
Upright and Lightweight
Everyone has their own preference when it comes to what they need from a vacuum cleaner. It changes depending on the size of your living area, whether or not you have kids and pets. For example, I have an old back injury, so I prefer a vacuum cleaner that is lightweight and doesn’t require bending.
This is one of the major benefits of Eureka NEU562A Bagless Vacuum. It’s a full-size cleaner and is about 16 pounds, although it feels much lighter. As its upright, there’s no bending or messing with hoses and attachments required.
Benefits of Eureka NEU562A
As mentioned above, the suction is consistent from the beginning to the end of your cleaning process. The suction is also quite powerful and can easily clean all surfaces. For tougher areas, you can use the pet turbo brush.
The brush comes with a slider that allows you to reduce the suction when you’re working with more delicate fabrics and surfaces. Besides the 2-in-1 upholstery tool, you also get two additional accessories, including the soft dusting brush and the 16-inch crevice tool.

The Eureka NEU562A FloorRover Upright Vacuum Cleaner sucks in exactly the way a good vacuum cleaner should. The suction power and capacity – especially on carpets – is by far its strongest feature. It gets deep into carpets to suction up stubborn and hard-to-remove dirt and debris.
The pet turbo tool is also a fantastic feature, and one I use every time I clean. It gets to cat and dog hairs that are stuck in carpets or on your hardwood floors with little effort. I’m a bit of a neat freak, so I used to use my vacuum cleaner every day. With the Eureka, I can give myself a break and a day off because I know it does the job properly.
