This article presents the top 10 best vacuum cleaners.
Keeping your home or office clean is job that requires certain tools. Mops, brooms and sponges are all certainly important selections. But the number one tool in many people’s cleaning arsenal is none of these. It’s the vacuum cleaner.
Since their very beginnings in 1860, vacuum cleaners have been a pivotal cleaning tool because of their ability to perform a specific task that no other household item does. For years, the best vacuums have evolved, taking on new shapes, designs, features, and even more refined cleaning functions. We break-down today’s top ten vacuums so you know exactly what you’ll be getting inside that sparkly new box.
1. Dyson Ball Multi Floor 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner
Sure, the cheerful yellow color might make your cleaning chores a bit less of a drag, but the quality level and dependability of Dyson is what truly places it on our list. The upright vacuum is highly maneuverable, comes with a 5-year warranty, and is built to last. A wand and extra large hose help you easily clean tough-to-reach spots. The self-adjusting head automatically raises and lowers to provide excellent suction that goes from hardwood to carpet with ease. The HEPA filtration system keeps allergens trapped inside and the hygienic bin emptying feature means you only have to push a button to empty the waste canister.
2. Sebo X5 Upright
The lesser-known Sebo does very well with its high-performance, X5 Upright model. An extra wide, 15″ cleaning deck, great suction, HEPA-filtration, and double brush rolls make this model a real winner. Testing concedes that this model’s lifespan is typically 15 to 20 years under strenuous conditions. Also enjoy a healthy array of attachments and adjustable height on the deck.
3. Dyson Cyclone V10 Animal
The Dyson Animal has gained quite a loyal following, and this newest model has made quite a splash. With hundreds of excellent reviews, this vacuum is all about versatility.

Miele’s Electro+ comes is one of the highest-rated vacuums on our review list.

Other great perks include a proven 20-year average life-span, a 90-degree swiveling brush attachment for wand-cleaning, canister-containment, sealed HEPA system for allergy and asthma sufferers, adjustable electric power-head, and more.
5. BISSELL Crosswave Pet Pro
The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is a true cleaning machine. This all-in-one wet/dry vacuum cleaner and mop system not only does a terrific job picking up dirt, but it also shampoos carpets and mops hardwood floors. Double tanks ensure that you are always using fresh clean water, and a microfiber nylon brush allows you to pick up dirt and mop at the same time. The unique design of the Crosswave allows for easy, multi-surface cleaning. Designed for homes with pets, a built in pet hair strainer keeps the machine from clogging. Cleanup is easy too. Just remove and rinse the storage tray.
6. Shark Navigator NV352
Even though there are plenty of top vacuum cleaners to choose from that cost much more, the Shark Navigator NV352 proves that price is not always an indicator of quality. Powerful suction and great maneuverability are the NV352’s main design focus. Power-brushes, adjustable reach, comfortable grip, canister-capture, crevice tools, 5-year warranty, and even a stylish look – what else could we ask for?
7. Miele Dynamic U1 Jazz Upright Vacuum

There is not much to dislike about a Miele vacuum. Quiet and highly efficient, people that have them rave about them. Other perks that we love include a handy height adjustment, the special Clean Air filtration system, and the very well designed dusting brush and crevice tools. The obsidian black makes a sophisticated fashion statement, if you’re in to that sort of thing.
9. Electrolux EL4021A
The Silent Performer bag less canister vacuum by Electrolux is a well-made and highly rated economy vacuum cleaner. This canister vac is a great demonstration of noise control with it’s quiet motor and sound-softening nozzle.

A 3-in-one crevice tool, upholstery nozzle, and dusting brush allow you to clean stairs, furniture, drapes, and more.
10. Panasonic MC-UG471
