Save Vs. Splurge: The Best Vacuum Cleaners for 2019

Posted January 9, 2019 by in Lifestyle

Searching for a new vacuum cleaner is a difficult task since there are endless options to choose from in today’s market. Back in the day, you could walk into any department store and see only 3-6 options. Now stores like Target have whole aisles dedicated to vacuums.  Yikes!

Whether you’re searching for a budget-friendly option or the best of the best of vacuum cleaners, we’ve got covered:

The Dyson V6 Animal Cordless Vacuum

The Dyson V6 Animal Cordless vacuum is an excellent choice for those who have pets, and for people who live in a larger home as you wouldn’t have to carry around a bulky vacuum.  It’s the best vacuum cleaner concerning functionality in my honest opinion (I have one). 

With the Dyson V6, you can easily clean under the couch as it can quickly maneuver and as expected, it is cordless; so no annoying cord following you around. Having vacuums for tricky stairs and reaching on difficult spaces is very convenient when having one with no cord. It just makes cleaning a thousand times easier. This appliance also comes with a direct drive head that aides it to remove dirt that is stuck deep inside tight areas. 

This vacuum is an investment, however it’s well worth it. Battery replacement is also easy for this model as Dyson V6 vacuum battery is easily available online. Don’t want to pay full-price? It’s pretty easy to find older models of this Dyson at a lower price. You can also find this vacuum refurbished for half the price by doing a quick Google search.

Shark Rotator NV800

The Shark Rotator NV800 is one of the best upright vacuums on the market right now, and it costs a tad less than the Dyson V6. About $279. It’s not too big, and it’s the ideal choice for people who don’t like cordless varieties. 

It has a unique look due to its brown color and it has LED lights at its base to help you spot all the dirt Another benefit of the Shark Rotator NV800 is that its canister can be separated from the body making it easy to carry it around as you clean. 

iRobot 980

If you’re a very busy bee and find you have little to no time to vacuum on a regular basis, you may find the iRobot 980 vacuum is for you. It cleans on its own. Just turn it on, and let it do its magic.

The product comes with a spinning side brush plus two main rotating brushes. The iRobot 980 can be connected to the egg robot using a Wi-Fi connection. So, you can download the app and control the cleaner from your phone. 

While it is heavy, you won’t have to lift it very often. It also has a high suction power that allows it to remove dirt and dust effectively. This is the most expensive vacuum of the group.

Worried about it getting stuck? It’s a valid concern since when these type of vacuums came out over 20 years ago, they did get stuck…constantly. I remember very well as my parent’s had one. The technology has definitely improved, but I think these type of vacuums are best for people who have minimal stairs in their main living area.

Shark Rocket Ultra-Light Upright HV301

This Shark model is very similar to the Dyson V6, however it’s about $150 less. A great option for those who wish they could own a Dyson, but simply aren’t financially ready. It does still have a cord, but it’s very lightweight.

Dirt Devil Versa 3-in-1 Cordless Stick Vacuum

Live in a studio or 1-bedroom apartment? If so, the Dirt Devil Versa 3-in-1 Cordless Stick Vacuum may be the best choice for you. Before investing in the Dyson V6, this was the vacuum I had for years here in NYC and it was great. The charge doesn’t last that long, but it will definitely last if you live in a smaller space without any pets. If you live in a larger home or you have pets and you’re on a budget; getting a Dirt Devil with a cord would be best.
