It’s officially spring, which means it’s time for spring cleaning. While some may dread that part of the season, upgrading your home cleaning solutions may be a way to make the process more enjoyable. The first step you should take? A new vacuum.
It’s always frustrating to use a vacuum that doesn’t get the job done, so we’ve rounded up some of our choices for the coolest gadget you didn’t know you needed: a new vacuum. Our top picks include a vacuum that does the work for you, and a mini one to get those hard-to-reach spots. We’ve also found options so you can stop messing with cords while cleaning up messes, and as always, our best affordable option.
Best Vacuums for Spring 2022
With three power modes and 60 minutes of run time, this vacuum will get any job done. You’re able to unplug to go cordless, it’s lightweight enough to lift high up and as the picture shows, it can lay almost completely flat for cleaning down low underneath furniture. Dyson is the Cadillac of vacuum cleaners thanks to its innovative and patented technology, and the V10 proves just that.
Instead of your vacuum taking up floor space in a closet, you can hang this on a wall-mounted dock that recharges your vacuum when not in use. The best feature of the V10 Cyclone is the “point and shoot” capability for emptying and cleaning the vacuum’s bin. Simply release a lever to empty the bin directly into the trash can, avoiding any mess left behind.
The Cyclone Animal V10 will pick up any dirt or hair left behind from any of your furry friends, from both the carpet and your upholstery. It also comes with four extra tools.
This is the answer for anyone who has ever pushed their vacuum back and forth over that last bit of dust that just won’t get picked up. With more than 85% more suction than the Dyson V7, its lowest-priced model on the market, this vacuum will deep-clean your carpets.
This Dyson lasts for 60 minutes, holds .20 gallons in its bin, and comes with five extra attachments. Just like the V10 model, the vacuum is extremely versatile when it comes to all of the places it can reach. It also features the “point and shoot” hygienic bin emptying and drop-in docking for charging and storage.
Pick: Most Affordable
This is our top choice for an affordable vacuum that will get the job done well. This is another great choice for anyone who needs to clean up pet hair thanks to the triple action brush roll that is able to lift up hair and dirt from your carpet. It holds up to 1 liter of dirt, and has the dirt bin conveniently located on the bottom so you don’t have to touch the mess after.
This Bissell features swivel steering so you can maneuver the vacuum around any home, and it comes with a 6 foot hose.
Pick: Best robot vacuum
It’s 2022, so why don’t we all have vacuums doing the cleaning for us? This eufy by Anker BoostIQ RoboVac does just that. It’s designed to be the slimmest and quietest robot vacuum, and it recharges itself. There are newer, more expensive versions, but this classic remains our top pick cause it just downright works great.
The RoboVac vacuums up to 100 minutes on hardwood floors and docks itself to the charging port to keep the battery full when you’re not using it.
Use the included remote control to set the time or area for your RoboVac, and enjoy all of the newfound free time you’ll have thanks to not having to vacuum.
Pick: Cars and small messes
If you’ve ever made a small mess in the kitchen or car and don’t want to pull out your entire vacuum for it, this handheld vac is the perfect solution. Built into the rotatable nozzle are a flip-up brush and a pull-out crevice tool, so you can switch jobs without having to pull out any extra attachments. The crevice-tool will reach into the smallest of spaces, and is also a perfect accessory for cleaning out those cracks filled with crumbs in your car.
The handheld vacuum comes with a fast-charging base, so you can keep it ready-to-grab for the next time you have a small spill.
