What Is A Good Vacuum To Buy [2021]


If you prefer bagless vacuums, but still want a model that filters out tiny particles, this sealed vacuum with a HEPA filter is a great option. While we haven't tested this model in our Lab, it has similar features to our previous pick for best overall, the APEX Upright Vacuum Cleaner, which has since been discontinued by Shark.

Online reviews appreciate the vacuum's powerful suction, clean smell thanks to the odor technology and flexibility when it comes to the amount of surfaces it can tackle. Some customers do note that the vacuum can be heavy.


This vacuum cleaner comes fully loaded with features that'll suck up every last bit of unwanted pet hair. A tangle-free brush roll keeps pet hair from clogging the bristles, and a hair spooling system inside the canister contains the mess so emptying is easier and cleaner.


Cleaning hardwood floors with vacuums that have hard bristles on the brush roll can be damaging, causing small scratches that can ruin the finish on sealed hardwood floors. The Pet Hair Eraser Turbo makes cleaning hardwood floors safer with a brush roll that can be turned off with the click of a button. Auto-height adjustment and two suction options for low and plush carpets make switching across cleaning surfaces easier too, though it is heavier than some reviewers would like.


This vacuum does not have a HEPA filter, but its sealed allergen system traps fine particles, and the filter uses Febreze technology to eliminate those stale odors that vacuuming up pet hair can generate.


Consistently one of the best stick vacuums for its excellent performance and incredible features, the V15 Detect earned a Good Housekeeping Cleaning Award thanks to the bare floor brush that beamed a laser on the floor to spot and pick up even the tiniest bits of debris that were otherwise invisible to us.


The Ilife Easine W100 is a 2-in-1 device that can vacuum and mop your floors at the same time, picking up wet and dry messes. In our Lab tests, we put 11 of these wet-dry vacuum mop devices through tests for dry debris like oats and wet messes like water and tested their scrubbing ability with a soy sauce stain on vinyl flooring.


This vacuum mop earned the highest overall score, performing well across all of our performance tests on wet and dry messes plus scrubbing. It has two tanks to separate the clean water used to clean your floors from the dirty water that is suctioned as you go, but was one of the only models we tested that did not have a catch in the dirty tank to separate the picked up debris from the dirty water. You can control how much water, or if any water is dispensed at all, with the click of a button and removing and reinstalling the water tanks is simple.


Allergy sufferers will love the high filtration bag and HEPA AirClean filter that prevents dust from being released back into the air. The power cord is retractable and all of the included tools can be stored in the canister. According to some reviewers online, its small wheels often get caught when pulling the vacuum along and it clocks in at over 20 pounds making lifting up stairs difficult for some.


Though its filter is washable, it is not HEPA certified and must be replaced every 6 to 12 months. Some other robot vacuums our experts have tested struggled with their mapping capabilities, requiring frequent re-mapping and struggling to go around obstacles without bumping into them. The S7 impressed our experts with its multi-floor mapping and extra features like a child lock and super responsive voice controls, naming it a GH Cleaning Award winner.


Like other robot vacuums, to keep the device working in tip top shape, you must routinely clean all of its parts and remove any hair wrapped around the brushes or wheels. This robot does not come with a self-emptying charging base so the dust bin has to be manually emptied and the water tank has to be refilled before each cleaning session, but you can purchase a compatible Roborock self-cleaning charging base separately.


Some simple but effective robot models are about the same price as good traditional vacuums. Meanwhile, higher-end models add advanced features like smart-mapping, targeted area- or room-specific cleaning, or even a self-emptying dock. Read more about the best robot vacuums.


One edge case to consider: If you have a lot of hairy pets, like four golden retrievers or a half-dozen long-haired cats, you might want to avoid bagged vacuums. Pet hair fills bags quickly, and the cost of replacing bags so frequently can add up. Read more about the best vacuums for pet hair.


High-pile carpets (like shag, frieze, saxony, cable, or long plush) pose a problem for some vacuums: The long fibers can tangle around the brush roller and/or block the intake, essentially choking the vacuum.


If you like to keep your car tidy, any of our handheld vacuum picks can work, but one with an accordion hose and clip-on tools will make the job easier. This style is also great for cleaning up around the house. Read more about the best car vacuums.


Liam McCabe is a former senior staff writer for Wirecutter, and has covered the wild world of appliances since 2011. After testing dozens of robot vacuums, he is neither worried about AI nor holding his breath for self-driving cars. He enjoys visiting factories and learning about regulatory loopholes, and has flooded our testing area only three times.


This sleek vacuum is an investment, but it runs like a vacuuming dream thanks to its superb pick-up across all floor types, an innovative docking station that can house up to 2 litres of dust and its quick-charging batteries. It cleans hard-to-reach spaces with aplomb, too.


Designed to make vacuuming easier, this Hoover converts into a portable vac so you can reach every step and cranny in your home. It lifts pet hair in one sweep, and none got stuck in the brush head on test. Dust pick-up was also top notch. A terrific all-round buy.


This vac learns as it goes, mapping out the best way to navigate your home while it cleans. It also returns to the docking station to empty itself mid-clean before continuing vacuuming. It picked up dirt outstandingly and had no trouble with pet hair either. It's expensive but effective.


The Overall Score for each model incorporates results for each of these tests, as well as ratings for predicted reliability and owner satisfaction, which are based on our survey data covering more than 101,000 vacuums that CR members purchased between 2012 and 2022.


  • Most vacuums last an average of eight years. However, one important factor to consider when preserving the lifespan of your appliance is the type of model it is. If your vacuum is a cordless stick pick, for example, it'll have a shorter lifespan due to the use of a battery instead of a cord.There are many things you can do to ensure that your vacuum lasts as long as it possibly can. Emptying the bag and cleaning the filter regularly are both ways to make sure your vacuum doesn't overfill or get clogged. Cleaning the attachments of any debris is also key toward helping your vacuum last, as any type of hair or tangled fibers in attachments can still cause other damage to the unit as a whole."}},"@type": "Question","name": "Why do vacuum cleaners lose suction?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "The most common cause of vacuum suction loss is clogging. If something is blocking the filters in your appliance, it restricts the flow of air. By regularly cleaning your vacuum of dirt and debris, you'll extend its lifespan and ensure that it won't lose power. It's also important to check the operating belts of the vacuum to make sure there isn't a problem with the base unit. You can check the belts by following the instructions in your appliance's operating manual.","@type": "Question","name": "How do you know what type of vacuum cleaner to buy?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Your vacuum cleaner needs will be determined by your household priorities. The most important factors to consider are the size of your home, what kind of floors you have, and whether you have pets. For smaller households, a cordless stick or even handheld vacuum may work, but for a larger family home, you may want to consider a more powerful canister or upright vacuum.Homes with hardwood floors should consider a vacuum that's specifically designed for that type of surface, including a wet-dry vacuum that mops and vacuums. If you have pets, there are also plenty of options on the market to help eliminate dander and fur.","@type": "Question","name": "How often should you clean a vacuum?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Generally, you should deep clean your vacuum and its parts at least every 12 to 18 months. However, this also depends on how often you vacuum. If you use your appliance weekly or daily, then cleaning it more often will be beneficial.As an example, bagless vacuums with washable filters should be cleaned at least once a month if they are used once or twice a week. Refer to your owner's manual for a breakdown of cleaning information, as that will give you the best instructions on model maintenance.","@type": "Question","name": "How do vacuum cleaners work?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "A vacuum has several different parts that come together to suck up dust and retain it. Its motor is powered by a fan, which runs at high speeds to create suction and release clean air through the exhaust port. The brush, housed in the bottom of the vacuum, helps to loosen and collect dust, dirt, and debris off of your floors. Then, a vacuum has either a bag, a single cyclone, or a multi-cyclone system that holds the debris it has collected. Finally, there is the exhaust filter, which helps to filter out particles and prevents your vacuum from blowing out of the exhaust port the dust and dander you've just collected.","@type": "Question","name": "When are vacuum cleaners on sale?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Aside from Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the holiday season, spring is the best time to buy a vacuum cleaner on sale. Since people like to get their spring cleaning done then, retailers will often schedule sales around that time of year. They also tend to release new models during the summer, so older models will usually get marked down."]}]}] .icon-garden-review-1fill:#b1dede.icon-garden-review-2fill:none;stroke:#01727a;stroke-linecap:round;stroke-linejoin:round > buttonbuttonThe Spruce The Spruce's Instagram The Spruce's TikTok The Spruce's Pinterest The Spruce's Facebook NewslettersClose search formOpen search formSearch DecorRoom Design
