Top 10 Best Vacuum Cleaner Reviews and Buying Guide for 2018

.

Vacuum cleanerIt seems a never-ending chore keeping our floors clean. When you have one of the best handheld vacuums, those will keep your immediate emergency cleaning done quickly.

Pets and kids track in dirt and debris; kids drop crumbs and pets leave tiny pieces of food everywhere, not mentioning cat litter that always becomes scattered to include hair or fur balls. If you have birds like I do, their tiny seeds seem to fly all over their caged area room.

The upright vacuum cleaner for pet hair is a must for the power an upright provides to pull it up. This type can vacuum wall-to-wall carpeting, Berber low pile carpet, area rugs, and hard-surfaced floors such as hardwood, laminate, tile, some flat slate, and more. Some are even bagless vacuum cleaners for less dirty hands and dust in your face when disposing.

Knowing which vacuum cleaner to purchase no matter the type can be overwhelming with the different brands and types in the market place competing with one another. I have done research for the best vacuum cleaner reviews listed below to save you much time.

1. Vacuum Cleaner Types

Vacuum CleanerThe full-size vacuum cleaners are of three basic types that are upright, stick, and canister. I am not reviewing canister types because I and a lot of other people don’t like to have them behind us to pull around. The graphic on the left is a canister type that usually tips over.

Upright Vacuums

Upright VacuumsUprights stand on their wheels and some have handles for collapsing for easy storage. These are the most powerful and these are what we think about when picturing a vacuum cleaner.

The front part that sits on the carpet or other surface is called the head where the motor and brush rollers are located. The dirt bin is located elsewhere, and different brands use different places. You push this in front of you and most can be pulled backward as well. They are very efficient and powerful on carpet, rugs, and any hard surface floors.

Most folks don’t care for the bags that hang on the back needing to be dumped but those are still available along with bagless models using canisters to easily empty the dirt contents. These don’t provide as many attachments as other types.

Stick Vacuums

Stick VacuumsA cleaner with a long thin handle is called a stick vacuum cleaner. They are super lightweight, have light suction and a rotating brush that pulls the dirt into a container. They are available with cords or battery powered. These are good for light cleaning and I love mine for my kitchen hardwood floors.

The Dirt Devil red or blue plastic vacuum uses a felt pad on the bottom with no brushes. They are sold for about $25 and are good only for bathroom tile, kitchen, and laundry room floors. It is very lightweight, corded, and has a filter inside the container that you empty in the outgoing trash because dust will fly. They sell well for the light amount of touching up you need done with a crevice tool attachment. They are very popular, but not reviewed here.

Canister Vacuums

Canister VacuumsThe canister vacuum is just what it means—a long cylinder or round container that you drag around behind you with the cord and the hose and foot attachment. The dirt comes up the head and into the canister for disposing.

This type vacuum does provide you with many attachments for cleaning furniture, curtains, walls, ceiling, and floors.

These are hard to store since they are bulky and are backbreaking to get up and down stairs. The canister type is not reviewed here.

Handheld Vacuums

Handheld VacuumsHandheld vacuums are a true convenience for cleaning in corners, stairs, furnace registers, along baseboard, in and under sofa cushions, and vehicles. Check out my handheld vacuum reviews below for the finest ones.

These are corded or cordless using batteries. Some upright models are combinations of a regular vacuum where the handheld unit detaches for use.

They have a small container for catching dirt to be emptied and are lightweight.

Robotic Vacuums

Robotic VacuumsRobo vacuums are new to the market since 2006 before iPhones. They are battery operated, need no one to push or pull them, and they do an excellent job on carpeting and hard floors. The are easy to clean out and the batteries are rechargeable.

Being thin, they usually fit under low profile furniture. Read the robot vacuum cleaner reviews down the page.

2. Features

What I always consider when buying a new vacuum cleaner is its weight, suction power, how easy it is to maneuver, and the container for holding dirt that must be discarded.

Weight

This is important because the heavier it is the harder to turn corners. The powerful upright vacuums are much heavier than the stick models using less power. When you live in a house with many stairs and many stories, even a tri-level home, you will have to tug it up and down steps. A vacuum at 17-pounds or less should be no problem for this task.

Bags or No Bags

Vacuum cleaners using bags have a disposable bag inside that you discard then replace with a new one. The new models come with an indicator light showing you when the bag is full and needs to be trashed. The bags are another expense, holds lots of dirt, and release no dust when thrown out.

The vacuum cleaner without bags collects the dirt in a container or small bin that you empty. When you empty this type, I always advise to cover your mouth with a scarf to keep the fine dust out of your nostrils and mouth. Glasses or sun glasses will keep the dust from getting into your eyes. If you have allergies, it’s a must to cover your face and wear long sleeves.

Filter System

Vacuum cleaners are typically outfitted with filters. You will save money if the filters are washable. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are good for removing microscopic particles of dust, pollen, dust mites, pet dander, tobacco smoke and offer the finest type of filtration.

Micron or carbon filters remove small particles for good filtration while the standard filters offer the lowest level.

A vacuum that offers filters that can be washed under the sink faucet will save you money in the long run.

Noise

Noise is inevitable with vacuum cleaners. The level measured in dB (decibels) is often given by the manufacturer. Select a quieter vacuum if you have sensitive ears in your home or you live in a dorm or apartment building. Try to find a vacuum with 65 dB or less. Anything above 70 dB will be quite noisy.

Cord Length

Cord length is important to me and to you too. No one wants to be plugging and unplugging the darn cord after only walking a few feet. A cord 25-feet or longer is the most convenient length. Most sellers will give the cord length while others, usually from foreign countries, don’t even consider the value of publishing the length in their description.

Vacuums with cords offer the most power. Electricity is more powerful than batteries. The suction will be greater with corded vacuums. Battery operated vacuums are efficient however.

Accessories/Attachments

With attachments, you can clean drapes, window shades/blinds, Roman blinds, lamp shades, and the sofa and recliner upholstery and cushions.

The narrow crevice tool gets in between cushions, down the inside of recliners. The round brush dusts areas that are hard to do with a dust cloth.

Carpet Pile Adjuster

Most vacuum cleaners have a foot switch for moving the brush head up and down for lower/higher carpet pile or flat surfaces.

Cost and Warranties

Depending on what features you want, you can buy a vacuum cleaner anywhere from $50 to $400 and up. The very basic upright will cost between $80 to $120. A high-end upright can cost from $180 to $390.

Look for a Warranty of at least 1-year for parts and labor. Some companies offer 5-years for their Warranties and that is great!

Tips for Using Vacuum Cleaners

  • The round robots cannot be used on dark or black floors and carpet. It trips the sensor thinking it’s falling off stairs. To fix that, cover with a sticky note or foil and it will run right over dark floors without a problem.
  • Do not add water and cleaning chemicals to robots unless specifically designed to be a rug cleaner.
  • Work in both directions using any vacuum cleaner to pick up the most dirt. It’s a good idea to cross clean.
  • Dust tables and other surfaces first so that you won’t have to dust them after vacuuming.
  • If you have replaceable filters change them frequently.
  • If you have washable filters, wash under tap water often.
  • Change HEPA filters at least every 6-months so that they are effective.
  • Clean you carpets and floors often. If you wait until they look dirty, the vacuum works harder, and allergens are more prone to be there.
  • Unplug your vacuum when changing filters if it’s the corded type.
  • Do not use extension cords unless it’s the correct AWG (American Wire Gauge) found in hardware stores.
  • Never plug your vacuum into an outlet that has other things plugged into it. It can cause a fire or electrical injury if your vacuum does not have a circuit overload protector to shut it down.
  • Always read your User’s Manual; it is full of good information.

Final Thoughts

We hope this article will help you choose one of the most functional vacuum cleaners for home use. Most are not very expensive and will pay for themselves in a few years because you won’t need to use a broom and dust pan anymore. Read customer reviews on Amazon to get more insight from those who bought any of the brands listed above. Happy shopping!
