Buying the Right Vacuum

By June 23, 2022No Comments

Buying any major appliance for the home is stressful. You want efficiency and longevity without burning a hole in your wallet. Buying the right vacuum is just as stressful. Here are some points you should consider before you start vacuum shopping.

Types of Vacuums

Canister: A canister vacuum separates the brush from the motor with a long suction hose. They work great on hard surfaces, like your wood floors. They also make for easy maneuvering especially for stairs.

Upright: This is the standard push around vacuum. They are great for large carpeted and hard surface areas.

Handheld: Light, handheld vacuums are great for your small messes and tight corners.

Stick: These stand upright, but are lighter and less aggressive than they upright vacuum. They are great for areas that need frequent clean up like kitchens.

Robotic: Small and stealthy, these cordless vacuums do the work for you. They are best for frequent, light clean up.


I know budget is high on your priority list; I’d be concerned if it wasn’t. Do your research. But know that you are probably going to spend at least $200 for a quality machine.


The type of vacuum and attachments you require is heavily dependent on the surfaces needing cleaned. Think about your carpet, hard surfaces like wood and tile, stairs, hard to reach areas, and even your furniture.


There are a lot of great features that are offered. You have cordless, lightweight, bag-less, and self run vacuums. These small conveniences matter. You need to be buying a vacuum that you will love.


Allergies give you extra motive to pick the perfect vacuum. Pay extra close attention to the filtering system of the vacuum. With a great filter, less dust will escape back into the air. Vacuums that use bags also help to keep that dust where it belongs, out of your lungs.

Your Mess

Lastly, you should consider you and your families specific mess. Kids and pets need to be taken into account. Are you needing a machine to handle deep cleans, or something to just keep things tidy?
