What Makes A Top-Selling Vacuum?

So, how does a vacuum cleaner make the A-league in 2024?

“These days, it’s not enough to simply have super suction,” says Nick Trajkovski, The Good Guys Buyer – Floorcare. “To top the list, a vacuum must now also offer lifestyle benefits such as top-grade filtration for trapping allergens, as well as practical extras – think removable handheld appliances, or time-slashing tech like the power to vacuum and mop simultaneously. Then there are robot vacs that go one giant leap further to deliver completely hands-off cleaning!”

What Are The Top-Selling Vacuums?

With their cordless convenience and cool design, stick vacuums have become a favourite of Australian households, especially Dyson stick vacuums (look out for top-flight Dyson models with next-gen sensor tech that automatically revs up suction in dirtier areas). Respected brands such as Bosch, LG and Vax also score big with their dust-busting HEPA filters proven to show pesky allergens the door. And leading the robot vac parade? Ecovacs is cleaning up (pardon the pun!) with value-added perks, including advanced object-avoidance skills, self-emptying docks and Wi-Fi connectivity to let you control your clever cleaning buddy from anywhere.
