Buying a vacuum cleaner.
Choosing the best vacuum cleaner for you.
When searching for the best vacuum cleaner for you, it’s important to identify how you plan to use it. Are you mostly going to be deep cleaning carpeted areas or do you want the best vacuum for hardwood floors? Do you need a pet hair vacuum so you can stay on top of shedding from your furry friends? Perhaps the best floor cleaner for you is a HEPA vacuum, which mostly frees your home of harmful particles and allergens by trapping 99.97% of them inside the machine. If you’re looking to clean, disinfect, sanitize and remove stains and grime, a steam cleaner, also known as a steam mop, is a good option.
Vacuums: what you should know.
When browsing vacuums, consider which style will offer the most convenience. Upright vacuums are a good option for larger houses and homes with a consistent pet hair problem because they're powerful and designed to deep clean carpets. They’re also effective on area rugs and hardwood floors.
If you’re looking for a lighter option that’s easier to maneuver with similar power to an upright, canister vacuums would be a good fit. These machines are also able to clean corners, hard-to-reach spots and under furniture.
Stick vacuums work well in multi-level homes because they're good with stairs and are easy to move from floor to floor. Plus, they're convenient for your quick surface-cleaning needs.
Cordless vacs are great if you need to tackle hard-to-reach spaces. They also work well for spot cleaning and tend to be light enough to easily move up and down floors. If you’re looking to do the least amount of work, consider a robot vacuum, which will keep your floors clean and you don’t need to lift a finger.
Before making your choice, you may want to compare features of the top-rated vacuums and how other customers have reviewed them. Both features and reviews can be found by clicking on the vacuum you’re interested in.
Other floor cleaner options.
Other alternatives include a commercial vacuum. These are more durable and include a longer cord so you can cover a larger area without having to unplug. There’s also a wet and dry vacuum, which tackles liquid spills and removes dirt and dust.
Along with evaluating floor cleaners, you might want to consider cleaning products that’ll help with your home cleaning efforts. Finally, once you’ve decided on the best vacuum cleaner for you, check to see which tools come with it. Whether it’s a crevice tool, multi-angle brush or ceiling fan tool, if you need to add a tool, Best Buy offers a wide selection of vacuum and floor care accessories.
