vacuum

If your home is need of a new vacuum, the market is full of different options that can be right for you. We compiled a bunch of tips that will help you pick the best vacuum for your home.

Things To Consider

Checking The Features

Motorized brushes tend to be better at cleaning carpets.

Bags

While a bag-less vacuum cleaner can help you to save money on the bags, you will have to replace your filter more often.

Noise

Your vacuum cleaner should not require any form of ear protection.

Test

Even with online orders, you will want to visit a physical retailer to try out the product for yourself.

Picking The Right Type

Upright

While these models tend to be cheaper, some may find the task of pushing and pulling these models to be annoying.

Stick

These battery-powered models tend to offer a lightweight, convenient option, but they tend to offer poor performance with carpeted floors.

Robotic

These units can do the cleaning while you relax, but they can’t clean everything.

Canister

These models are ideal for cleaning bare floors and beneath furniture, but these models tend to be bulkier than your other options.

Hand Held

Central

While easier to use than canister vacuums, these units can be a little expensive.

Features To Look For

Add-ons

Special brushes/attachments can help you with difficult cleaning tasks, but don’t pay for things you’ll never use.

Bags

Keep in mind that filters tend to cost more to replace than bags.

Bare Floor Option

Look for vacuums that come with bare floor options.
