Recommended Vacuums

We’ll be honest: even though we’ve reviewed hundreds of vacuum cleaners in the last two decades of work as professional cleaners, we’ve only really trusted a few of them each year enough to use and recommend them to the families we work with. If you’re looking for recommendations on the best budget vacuums, we’re afraid we’re not going to be much help. But if you’re looking for the best mid-range or high-end upright, canister, pet-friendly, or allergen-targeting vacuums on the market, we’ve got you covered. We’ll only add the best in each price range and in each category. If you’re ready to buy, please keep in mind that buying through our affiliate links helps fund our vacuum addiction budget.
