What are The Best Rated Vacuum Cleaners for Carpets in 2015 and Beyond?
It’s already 2015, and you’re looking for the best solution for your carpets, right? Well, here is my list of top rated, best carpet vacuum cleaners on Amazon. You should definitely check them out, because you won’t get a better deal anywhere else.
Below is my list of best rated vacuum cleaners for carpets. I’ve split this list into parts – handheld carpet cleaners, best all-in-one solutions (good for hardwood wooden floors) and carpet vacuums for pet hair as well.
Top 4 Overall Carpet Vacuum Cleaners:
These are the top four all around models. You should check them out first.
Hoover, Dirt Devil, Shark and Eureka, you can find them all here. These models are the best hybrids on the market because not only are they good for carpets, they are also very good for other floor surfaces (such as tile and hardwood). Also, they have the best ratings on Amazon. You can’t go wrong with any of these.
Shark Navigator Professional Lift-Away Vacuum Cleaner – Model NV356E
This is one of my favorite carpet cleaners around. Although I generally prefer BISSELL models over Shark, this has to be the best of its class when you want a clean carpet in your home.
The swivel is very mobile; you can rotate it wherever you want to. This is very handy when cleaning carpet stairs and upholstery.
I’d also like to mention that this Lift-Away model comes with powerful attachments, and that is the best aspect about it. You get a dust-away tool for bare floors, microfiber pads and a very long hose. Finally, for your carpets you get a power brush (which is also good for pet hair).
Eureka Quick-Up Cordless 2-in-1 Stick Vacuum with Bonus Filter, 96HX
This little dude is perfect if you’re not up to carrying huge 20 pound vacuum cleaners around. The telsecopic handle is a big asset. It comes with a bonus filter.
My props for the cleaning path: although very light and small, you the cleaning path is 10 inches wide. You’ll cover a lot, without having to come back again.
Keep in mind that this is not necessarily a replacement for a standard vacuum cleaner, but the fact of the matter is this: if you use this model regularly, you won’t even need a canister (or a bagged vacuum) in the first place!
Sometimes, the pet hair can get stuck. You simpy detach the nozzle and clean it up. I don’t know why people on Amazon make so much fuzz about it.
BISSELL Pet Hair Eraser Handheld Vacuum, Corded, 33A1
This is honestly the best handheld pet vacuum on the market today. It comes with a one year limited warranty, and its size is around 10 by 5 by 8.
The handle is very firm, and it’s easy on your wrists. The nozzle is interchangeable.
The consumers on Amazon report great things about this little guy. One consumer has said that she has 2 long-haired cats that shed like crazy. But after using this model, all of her pet hair problems are gone.
This model is also great for picking up the leftovers of stuffed animals.
The only con that I’ve noticed is that the side vents can sometimes blow the hair off before the machine manages to pick it up. Simply rotate the vacuum a bit to get over this issue.
Bissell PowerLifter PowerBrush Upright Steam Carpet Cleaner
BISSELL is a very successful German vacuuming company, that’s why I’ve decided to spotlight another one of their carpet vacuum cleaners. If you’re on a budget, and want to buy a quality carpet vacuum for under $100,go with this one, you won’t regret it.
In my opinion, if you are searching for the best carpet cleaning solution, and your home surfaces are “full” of carpets, you might wanna check this one out.
Why am I saying this? Well, because this is the only vacuum cleaner that goes deep into the carpet fibers. It removes deep entrenched stains and prolongs the “life” of your carpet.
The water tank is separated and it keeps dirty water away from the fresh, clean one.
Keep in mind that this is not a steam cleaner in itself, but it comes very close (for such a low price).
There’s one issues that bugs me: the water tank is pretty small. You’ll have to fill it up a few times before you clean your living room (for example). If this doesn’t bother you, go for it!
BISSELL vacuum cleaners for carpet are probably the best on the market currently. However, most of these below come with a steep price (almost every model is above 100 dollars). However, if you can afford it, BISSELL is an excellent choice.
