What really makes the difference when choosing between the best of the best is considering your environment. Start by thinking about what surfaces you’ll be vacuuming and the layout of your home. You will also need to consider if you’d prefer bagged or bagless, corded or cordless, and so on.

We know, there is a lot to consider, but do not despair – The Good Guys are here to help! Read on to find the best vacuum cleaner for you and your home.

Which Is The Best Vacuum Cleaner For My Home?

Cordless Stick Vacuums

Cordless stick vacuums have been on the rise in popularity, and for good reason. But a question many ask before making the switch is, are stick vacuums as good as normal/ traditional vacuums?

It wasn’t long ago that stick vacuums were considered the perfect tool for quick cleans before your guests arrive, or for a speedy vac over hard bare floors before you head out the door. It was considered the perfect accompanying tool – for when you don’t have the time or energy to lug out your bigger upright vacuum. Although, the convenience of stick vacuums remains, now – thanks to ever-evolving tech, they even rival some of the deep cleaning performance of full-sized vacuums.

The latest models are powerful, have long battery lives and lots of attachments ideal for deep cleaning. Whilst still having unbeatable convenience and flexibility.

For small households, this could be your new best friend, enjoy easy cleaning of upholstery, cars and more with easy conversion and cordless power. Those with bigger households may need a corded vacuum for around-the-clock cleaning availability but could still benefit from having such flexibility on hand.

Upright Vacuums

Want an all-in-one powerful experience? Then a corded upright vacuum might be for you. Although they don’t have the stylish sleek flexibility of stick vacuums, they do have other useful features that could make your life easier. This includes not having to worry about battery life, holding more dust and often featuring great suction power.

This option is suitable for big homes, especially ones that have lots of carpet, and is ideal for those who want the ability to be able to clean whenever they need (and for those who end up cleaning a lot throughout the day).

The upright design is also a modern twist on the traditional vac so you can have the best of both worlds. Alternatively, a barrel vacuum offers similar benefits and is lighter to operate (but requires you to pull the canister around too).
