Many people believe that a vacuum cleaner is just a vacuum cleaner. In reality, it is very important when shopping for a vacuum cleaner, that you consider many features before making a decision on which vacuum cleaner is best for you. Your home is as unique as you are. You may have carpeted floors in one room, wood floors or laminate in another, and even others with tile or concrete floors. In addition to different flooring types, you have to consider your furnishings, window treatments, how many people are in your house hold, and whether you have pets just to name a few circumstances that make your household and vacuum cleaner needs unique from everyone else. For this reason, we really can’t say there is one vacuum cleaner out there that is just better than all the rest. Instead, we have decided to feature 3 of the top vacuum cleaners for 2015, all of which have different features for different needs.
Some of the features that we have considered to determine our top 5 vacuum cleaners for 2015 are:
- Versatility: How well does the vacuum cleaner preform on multiple flooring surfaces? Most homes have more than one flooring surface such as carpet, laminate, hardwood, and tile floors. Beyond that, there may even been considerable differences between similar flooring types such as plush carpet, berber, shag, etc. When considering a vacuum cleaner, it is important to choose one that will properly clean every flooring type in your home.
- Cleaning Power: While many tend to only focus on the vacuum cleaner’s suction power, there is a lot more one should consider when deciding how well this machine will clean their home. How long will the vacuum cleaner maintain its initial suction power, does it have a roller brush, how clean is the air expelled from the vacuum? These questions and more are important to ask yourself when you are doing your research on what vacuum cleaner is best for your home.
- Maneuverability: Many times we find vacuum cleaners that have everything that we are looking for in terms of power and versatility, but largely lacking in maneuverability. One should determine whether the vacuum cleaner they are considering for 2015 is light enough for them to use without becoming fatigued, can they easily maneuver the vacuum cleaner under and around the furniture in their home such as beds, tables and chairs. Choosing the right vacuum cleaner can ensure the best use of all the other features it has to offer.
- Corded/Cordless: Many of the best vacuum cleaner options available in 2015 come in corded or cordless variations. Additionally, other vacuum cleaners are only available as cordless machines while others may be exclusively corded. If you decide a corded vacuum cleaner best meets your unique household needs, you will want to ensure the model you choose has a cord with adequate length to ensure stopping too often to move the plug is not an issue. Likewise, if you choose a cordless model, make sure the vacuum cleaner has sufficient battery life and quick charging time to get the whole job done at once.
- Storage: Your storage space may be as unique as the rest of your home. Many people have an entire storage room, others, a cleaning closet, and yet others with little to no separate storage space for a vacuum cleaner. This is a very important, yet often overlooked feature to the vacuum you choose. Those with more space may wish to consider a larger, more powerful unit, or even more than one vacuum cleaner specially designed for just one flooring type each. Meanwhile, those with less space may consider a more compact and versatile model.
- Bags or Bagless: Some vacuum cleaners require the use of proprietary bags. These vacuums may offer advantages over their bagless counterparts, but the downside is that you can only use them if you have the right bags. Over the life of ownership of a vacuum cleaner of this type, you may spend hundreds of additional dollars on vacuum cleaner bags. Furthermore, if the bags your vacuum cleaner requires ever go out of production or are no longer carried in stores, this could make it difficult or impossible to continue using this machine.
- Automated: The last several years have seen huge advancements in the world of automated or robot vacuum cleaners. 2015 actually features the best automated vacuum cleaner options ever offered by far. While these options can certainly be pricey, they more than make up for it in conveniences. Automated vacuum cleaners will roam about your home cleaning for you while you are away. Today’s automated vacuum cleaners are light weight, compact, powerful, and feature great battery life. Aside from typically being one of the most expensive vacuum cleaner options, they also lack certain key features which may require you to buy a second vacuum cleaner to make up for what they lack in such as stairs, upholstery, and window treatment cleaning.
