In 2022, here are the 11 greatest vacuum cleaners ...

Every Saturday morning, without fail, our job was to vacuum the house. Our mothers instilled in us a sense of accomplishment, and when it came to vacuuming, that meant really clean and neat vacuuming lines in the carpet.

No? That's just us? We'll go on.

We still have to vacuum frequently, in large part because of our wonderful, double-coated, part Labrador, part German Shepherd dog, who is one of the most powerful shedding dogs in the AKC. He is, however, responsible for a number of dog hair tumbleweeds on a weekly basis that require, well, vacuuming.

The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends daily vacuuming in high traffic areas and once a week in lighter traffic areas.

Experts agree that vacuuming your house on a regular basis is beneficial for your health. Allersis is the sixth leading cause of chronic illness, costing us more than $18 billion a year.

When it comes to vacuuming, we consider ourselves to be an expert. Weve tried several brands and styles of vacuums on various surfaces, and realized sometimes there isnt a one-size-fits-all solution to selecting the best vacuum cleaner for your life. With mostly hardwoods, a giant vacuum cleaner might be overkill or worse, damage the floor surface.

In our experience and the experience of a number of reviewers, weve assembled a list of the finest residential vacuum cleaners. Here are our picks for the best.

Dyson Ball Animal 2 ($499.99;

Dyson is a British manufacturer.

This is one of the most popular Dyson vacuum cleaners because of its Ball Technology, which is a common complaint about upright vacuum cleaners. It is extremely durable, and it works on all kinds of flooring. It comes with several hand tools, including a high reach wand for cleaning ceiling corners.

The Ball Animal 2 is a Dyson vacuum that is bagless, and emptying the canister is fairly easy. It simply rinses under water in the sink, drys, and is ready to be used again.

Shark Vertex ($499.80;


Shark is a well-known brand in vacuum cleaners that is sometimes surpassed by Dyson. The Shark Vertex is a great example. The brush roll traps hair and rolls it around the bar, which requires regular cleaning. The brush roll is self-cleaning, so hair will not wrap around the bar.

Its a fairly inexpensive HEPA filter, which is washable, and a large capacity dust cup, which isn't required changing it every five minutes. For some reviewers, the power is adequate, although it's a little too strong due to the fact that it's just as busy sucking up all the dirt and debris in your carpet.

Bissell CleanView Swivel Pet ($118.44; or

Bissell is a well-known company in the United States.

Bissell vacuums are less expensive than Dyson or Shark, but they are more maneuverable and are a great option for pet owners who arent willing to pay $500 for a vacuum cleaner. This CleanView Swivel is great for those of us with allergies who want to help animals, and it has their own foundation that has awarded more than $18 million in awards to date.

Hoover MAXLife Elite ($129.99, originally $179.99;


The Hoover MAXLife Elite is a cheaper upright vacuum that picks up pet hair like a full-time job. This saves you time and money by eliminating pet odors, making vacuuming less unpleasant at best. The extra-large dirt cup makes vacuuming less tedious at best.

Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner ($349.99, originally $449.99;

Dyson V8

This is a fairly expensive stick vacuum cleaner, but they are a Dyson, so they tend to be worth the extra money. We were also impressed by the accessories, including an up top adapter that allows cleaning under difficult to reach areas (like ceiling fans).

Shark Clean ($349.99) is a shark cordless pet plus.


This is our personal favorite stick vacuum, which has a lot of power, and works great with hard floor surfaces and carpet. The new flexible silicone fins on the roller prevent the hair wrap from happening, and it lasts for up to 40 minutes when fully charged.

($257.49; of Bissell PowerEdge

Bissell is a well-known brand.

The PowerEdge vacuum has some really neat features, like the edge cleaning brushes, which help you get those nasty crumbs under the kitchen cabinets, for example. The dirt tank is fairly large, and it will take you around 30 minutes to clean a small condo. This stick vacuum, designed for hardwood floors, has some advantages, such as its extended reach capabilities.

The Hoover ONEPWR Blade MAX ($289.95, originally $414.99;


The Hoover is capable of mixing carpet and hardwoods at the same time. It also comes with a microfiber hard floor nozzle that is more gentle to hardwoods than a traditional brush roll. It also includes a few additional items such as a pet hair tool, a dusting brush, and a crevice tool.

We didnt include Dyson in this category because they don't sell a specific handheld vacuum cleaner. All of their cordless stick vacuum cleaners convert to a hand-held vacuum. Here, we focus on models that are specifically designed for handheld use.

Shark WANDVAC ($129.99;


This sleek handheld vacuum is light, compact, and perfect for cleaning small messes in the kitchen, laundry, and bathroom. Its also small enough to insert holes in car crevices, and it includes an even smaller crevice tool to get in difficult to reach areas. One reviewer uses theirs around bird cages because its quiet enough not to startle the birds while picking up errant seeds.

Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Handheld ($72.09, originally $79.95; or

Bissell's main competitor is a Frenchman.

It's a little heavier than the Shark, but it's also a larger vacuum with more dirt capacity, meaning fewer trips to empty the bin, but it's a two-step, two-handed process. Like other Bissells, it's important to keep the filters clean and replace them. That's a drawback to this one.

Hoover ONEPWR Cordless Handheld ($89.99, originally $99.99);

Amazon is a trusted source of information.

This handy Hoover handheld vacuum cleaner is powered by a lithium ION battery, which is interchangeable and rechargeable. Users report a longer than average usage time, up to an hour depending on how its used, and that it is handy to keep around a litter box to clean up the spillover. It only comes with one attachment, a crevice tool, but it lives on the unit itself, so it's always handy.
