Canister or robot vacuum? Upright or stick vacuum?

These days, vacuums can clean anything from carpets to hardwood, cozy apartments to family homes. Some adept multi-taskers switch effortlessly from deep-cleaning area rugs to touching up kitchen tile.

Which vacuum is the best? Read on!

Classic Canister and Upright Vacuums
Traditionalists prefer canister vacuums. They’re typically quieter and easier to maneuver because you can operate the power head without moving the canister’s weight. Canister vacuums tend to perform better on hard surfaces, too. Fans of traditional upright vacuums like the easy storage. Uprights often are better at cleaning high-pile carpet and usually come with an array of on-board tools for added versatility.

Stick vacuums are gaining popularity, particularly among those in smaller living spaces. Often super-lightweight and compact, these models slip easily into crevices and under furniture. A cordless vacuum offers ultimate maneuverability. Many portable vacuum models feature detachable hand-held vacuums for above-floor work on harder to clean areas like draperies and fans.

Vacuums That Help Clear the Air
Love your furry friends but not their fluffy messes? Upgrade to a model with a self-cleaning brush roll, such as a Shark vacuum specifically designed for homes with pets.

For allergy sufferers, HEPA filtration is a must. Pair the vacuum with air purifiers to remove more irritating particles and pollutants from your home.

The Robot Vacuum Revolution
It’s the ultimate in easy cleaning. A robotic model such as a Roomba vacuum lets you set it and then kick back and forget it. Some advanced systems offer remote operations via an app and smart capabilities with voice commands. Automatic dirt disposal and docking are becoming common, too.
