How to Choose a Vacuum Cleaner

Upright

The most basic, most widely-used vacuum cleaner style, uprights make easy work of cleaning entire floors in fewer passes and in less time. They come with powerful motors to create better lift to extract dirt and debris hidden beneath the surface of carpets and even between floorboards.

A Brief History of the Vacuum Cleaner

Stick

Stick vacs are arguably the sleekest type of vacuum cleaner. Their lightweight build makes it possible to vacuum not only floors and upholstery but also walls, ceilings, and curtains.

Canister

As the most powerful type, you can’t go wrong with a canister vac. This type is used in both residential and industrial settings, and it relies on different cleaning attachments to remove particles from floors, ceilings, and everything in between.

Handheld

For removing dust off of tables, upholstery, and auto interior, a handheld vacuum cleaner is for you. As you can imagine, they’re not nearly as powerful as other vacuum types, but their portable designs make them ultra-convenient for spot-cleaning smaller surfaces.

Robot

A robotic vacuum cleaner uses AI to clean your floors, allowing you to chill in the background. Some robots work side-by-side with robotic mops, while others have a built-in mopping function for 2-in-1 cleaning.
