With so many choices available, read our vacuum buying guide to help you choose the best vacuum cleaner for your home.

How Important is Noise To You?

Unfortunately, some vacuums can be deafeningly loud. If you live in a condo or apartment complex, chances are your neighbors will start to complaining if you vacuum late at night or early morning. so do not only consider the power level think about the noise level, a 65 decibels is a good choice.

How Important is the Weight of Your Vacuum to You?

In general it is better to get lightweight vacuums that have decent suction. If you have a heavy vacuum and a large home or have a second floor of steps to carry your vacuum the weight is a good consideration. 12 pounds is considered a good lightweight vacuum that will have at least an 1150 watt motor.

Do the People In Your Space Have Allergies or Asthma?

Suffering from allergies and asthma is a constant battle. Pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and mold spores floating around the air inside your home can trigger symptoms, causing flare-ups. Using anti-allergy vacuums with a true HEPA filter can trap 99.97 percent of airborne particles, helping to bring you some much-needed allergy relief. Look for a vacuum with the HEPA certification it will come with complete seal technology.

Do You Have Stairs In Your Home?

If you have stairs a canister vacuum is your best bet. Canister vacuums tend to be versatile, they can even be carried on your back as you vacuum. This is especially helpful when vacuuming the stairs.

Do You Have Pets?

There’s no reason your pet has to stay off couches and carpets just so your house can stay clean. A specialized rubber nozzle can attract hair, it pulls out annoying dirt from stairs and upholstery as well as floors. This type of vacuum can handle large amounts of pet hair, kitty litter, dirty paws, and whatever else comes your way as a pet parent. High-quality pet vacuums also use a more robust filter in their vacuums, helping keep away contaminants that might break free from their fur. With the proper pet vacuum and filter, you can use your vacuum as a way to improve your allergies, making it possible to live with animals even if you have a slight intolerance.

Do You Have Back Problems?

If you have back problems and do not want to bend too much an upright vacuum is the best choice. A lightweight upright vacuum would be your best bet.

Do You Have Carpet AND Hardwood Floors?
