Cheapest Place To Buy A Vacuum



  • Generally, you can expect a vacuum to last for about eight years. Several factors can affect its lifespan, including how much you use it, what you do to maintain it, and what style of vacuum it is. (A sturdy upright vacuum may last longer than a robotic model.) If your vacuum is on the less expensive side, that may also come at the cost of a few additional years of functionality.Katie Berry, The Spruce's Cleaning Review Board member, also notes that your vacuum's lifespan can be affected by the battery if you opt for a cordless pick. "With cordless vacuums, batteries often give out long before the vacuum does," she notes. "To get the longest life out of a cordless vacuum, look for models with replaceable batteries.""}},"@type": "Question","name": "How do I clean a vacuum?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "When it comes to cleaning a vacuum, your first step should always be to empty your vacuum, either by throwing away its dust bag or releasing the dust bin contents into the trash.

It can be tricky to find an inexpensive vacuum that still delivers impressive suction power across all surfaces in a home. Our "best overall" pick, the Dirt Devil VERSA 3-in-1 Stick Vacuum Cleaner is easy to pull out for any quick cleaning task around your home. Plus, it's surprisingly powerful with enough suction to clean both hardwood floors and carpet. If you're looking for an upright model, we recommend the HART Pro Bagless Upright Vacuum HZUV01, which quickly picks up debris without being too noisy.


Generally, you can expect a vacuum to last for about eight years. Several factors can affect its lifespan, including how much you use it, what you do to maintain it, and what style of vacuum it is. (A sturdy upright vacuum may last longer than a robotic model.) If your vacuum is on the less expensive side, that may also come at the cost of a few additional years of functionality.


Katie Berry, The Spruce's Cleaning Review Board member, also notes that your vacuum's lifespan can be affected by the battery if you opt for a cordless pick. "With cordless vacuums, batteries often give out long before the vacuum does," she notes. "To get the longest life out of a cordless vacuum, look for models with replaceable batteries."


When it comes to cleaning a vacuum, your first step should always be to empty your vacuum, either by throwing away its dust bag or releasing the dust bin contents into the trash. Next, use a microfiber cloth to wipe any remaining fine debris from the vacuum's interior. Depending on your model, you may be able to wash out the inside with soap and water, and even rinse out the filter. However, some vacuums have replaceable filters or can't get wet at all, so make sure to refer to your vacuum's manual before starting to clean it. Your last step should be checking the wheels and cleaner head for tangled hair. If you do use water to clean your vacuum, be sure to let everything air-dry before reassembling.


Vacuums that have a lower price tag may lack some of the bells and whistles you'd find on high-end models, like a wide array of attachments, powerful suction, and a spacious dust bin. There are plenty of vacuums that'll cover your cleaning needs at an affordable price, but if you're looking for a more specialized machine that'll recognize the layout of your home or do deeper cleaning, you may need to adjust your desired price point.


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 inexpensive upright has all you need in a vacuum and then some. Five height settings mean you can clean deep- and low-pile carpeting, bare floors and everything in between. Though we haven't tested this specific model, we have tested many, many Bissell upright vacuums with identical features and Bissell vacuums perform well on our carpet cleaning tests. We like that Bissell's bagless dust cup empties from the bottom because our tests show that this design creates less mess. And its turbo brush attachment mimics those we've seen on more expensive vacuums for removing pet hair and lint from upholstery and carpeted stairs.


This small but mighty machine weighs only three pounds and scored best overall for handheld vacuums in our last GH Cleaning Lab test. What makes it even better is that it's cordless! The rechargeable battery is compatible with any 20v or 40v Worx power tools, so there is no need to buy another battery if you already have one at home. If you don't already have one, though, you'll have to buy one which will ultimately drive up the price. It ran for 23 minutes on a single charge in our test.


If you're looking for a cheap vacuum, you may be surprised by how good of a performance you can get from budget-friendly options. The current product landscape has yielded many choices that should have little trouble cleaning different kinds of debris, though you might have to make sacrifices in terms of premium features or build quality.


We've tested over 130 vacuum cleaners, and below are our recommendations for the best cheap and the best budget vacuum cleaners. These recommendations are based not only on their price but also on their design and performance. For more buying recommendations, look at our list of the best vacuums under $100, the best handheld vacuums, and the best lightweight vacuums.


The best cheap vacuum we've tested is the Eureka Mighty Mite. Despite its affordable price point, this compact canister vacuum delivers strong performance across a wide variety of surfaces. It easily clears away messes on bare floors and performs well on low and high-pile carpet, even with a basic straight suction floorhead. You can retract the floorhead's bristles to generate a tighter seal against carpeted floors and improve debris pickup. Suction performance remains consistent as its dirtbag fills up, so you won't need to swap in a new one too often. Its dirtbag traps most dust particles, though it still isn't the best choice for allergy sufferers as far as bagged vacuums go, with some variants having vents behind the rear wheels that can bypass any post-motor filtration. 041b061a72
