Your Guide to Buying an Vacuums Nicole Blanckenberg

We hear you, buying the right vacuum cleaner is a tricky decision. It is more than just an appliance; it is an investment for your home. The reason it is difficult to decide on a vacuum cleaner is that there are just so many to choose from and review. To choose the best product to make cleaning super easy and comfortable, all depends on your home and what surfaces you need to clean. Do you need something that takes care of your retro carpets as well as sweeping up those trendy hardwood floors? Do you have a small loft in Manhattan or big rowdy five-bedroom house in Connecticut? To help you find the vacuum cleaner of your dreams, we have put together this comparative shoppers' guide.

Types Vacuums

The five main types of vacuums to choose from are: canister vacuums, upright vacuums, robotic (or automatic) vacuums, stick vacuums (or sweepers), wet/dry vacuums, and handheld vacuums. Each of these vacuums have a specific cleaning method and accessories that offer a variety of cleaning options for any housekeeper. Here's the breakdown to review and make your choice easier!

Canister vacuum cleaners: If you have stairs, need combination floor cleaning, and want something easy to use, then this vacuum does the job like a champion! Their flexible hoses and attachment options make these vacuums very versatile, allowing you to clean tile, wood, carpet, the living room drapes and even your sofa! They are lightweight, and pulling the vacuum around the house takes minimal effort.

Upright vacuum cleaners: They offer more cleaning power than other vacuums and are much easier on the back. They work with any kind of carpeting, getting to even the most stubborn piece of dust or pet hair. Some models come with features that allow you to use them on bare floors too. Fantastic! If you have a lot of carpeting, and want maximum dust and dirt removal, then this bad boy is just for you.

Robotic vacuum cleaners: The easiest vacuuming you will ever do! Robotic vacuums take all the effort out of vacuuming! They are lightweight and need minimal assistance. You are able to set them to clean while you are out of the house and they automatically turn off when they are done. They are able to get to all those out of reach places, like under the bed, and are quieter than other vacuuming options. They are very clever gadgets, with sensors that help them avoid furniture and walls.

Stick vacuum cleaners: If you are looking for a quick solution to your bare floor cleaning, then look no further. These are lightweight, easy to store and are ideal for small apartments, or a quick touch-up between deep cleans when your mother in-law is coming to visit. They work magic on bare floors but also lift the dust off those cozy area rugs or the light carpeting in your bedroom.

Wet/Dry vacuums: Wet/dry vacuums, often called shop vacuums, are designed for big and even wet messes. Their larger hoses and tanks are designed to accommodate much larger particles than many standard vacuums, can hold water, and they are built to be tough enough for daily use. Wet/dry vacuums are particularly useful for anyone with a hobby that routinely generates lots of debris, like woodworking.

Handheld vacuum cleaners: Small, compact and portable. Handheld vacuums come with or without a cord and are just what you need to get to those hard to reach places, clean up quick spills as they happen, or vacuum the inside of your car. Some of these are specifically designed for pet hair, which is particularly helpful for day to day cleaning that helps fight off frustrating allergies.

What Reviewers Have to Say

Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

  1. Lightweight: Having a lightweight vacuum makes it easier for you to move around your home. Cleaning doesn't have to be a difficult chore, and a vacuum that you can pick up, pull or push with ease, makes it a lot less troublesome! Especially if you have some stairs to climb!
  2. Suction: The better the suction, the cleaner your carpets will be. Good suction means dust is no match for your vacuum. Good suction also means you save on time and effort, having to go back over surfaces less often. And as bonus, it is good for your health! The more suction a vacuum has, the more it will help you fight allergies, keeping your home spic and span and your family healthy!
  3. Quality: A good quality vacuum will offer you a variety of accessories, made to last. This cleaning machine is the housekeeping investment you are looking for. Dependable and strong, it will be a true home management partner that won't let you down.
  4. Versatility: If you have combination flooring, then a vacuum that can handle any surface is the most important factor for you. A versatile vacuum allows you to have one machine (with useful attachments) that handles all your home cleaning needs -- saving you hundreds of dollars by avoiding buying multiple products for multiple needs. Who doesn't love a good savings?

Important Features

  • Surprisingly, the amps/watts/horsepower of a vacuum cleaner don’t determine if it is going to be an efficient cleaning superhero. All the magic of its cleaning power comes down to three things: airflow, the suction quality, and what attachments it comes with. Choosing based on those three things will leave you a satisfied customer!
  • If you are deciding between bag or bagless vacuums, here is a tip to help: If you have pets, then bagless vacuum are perfect for you to cut back on running costs. Pet hair takes up a lot of space, and bags will have to be replaced more regularly. If you and your family suffer from allergies, cleaners with replaceable bags may be the better for you. Bag vs bagless doesn't affect cleaning capabilities; it just comes down to which is more comfortable for you.
  • Having a “brush on/off” switch feature on your vacuum cleaner helps to protect those shiny bare floors from possible scratches that could occur while cleaning. This makes your vacuum far more useful, as you will be able to clean any type of floor!
  • When it comes to cords, cordless is king! This feature allows you to move around your home and get to all the nooks and crannies without tripping over cords or getting them stuck on furniture. This definitely makes vacuuming a less tedious task! If you decide on a cord vacuum, no problem at all! Retractable cords will have your vacuum packed up and put away in no time.
  • A wet/dry vacuum may be the perfect solution if you regularly deal with minor water pooling in your basement, work with wood and need to vacuum lots of dust and chips, or engage in any other activities or hobbies that needs and industrial strength vacuum.
  • Finally, adjustable power settings are most certainly a vacuuming perk! Being able to change the power based on the surface you wish to vacuum makes your cleaner even more versatile. Helping to protect an assortment of floors, and keeping your home clean and tidy!
