What We Look For

In our reviews we look at features and details that our viewers and guests have expressed are important to them. This can include things like:

  • Ease of Use – The weight of an upright or cordless vacuum is important just as much as smooth handling and useful attachments. Robot vacuums also need to be intuitive and easy to use.
  • Pet hair and hair wrap – How does the vacuum cope with pet hair? Does it clog easily with hair or will the hair wrap around the vacuum brush roll?
  • Smart Vacuums and Smart Home Features – More and more vacuums are introducing smart features that incorporate with smart home systems or allow the vacuum to adapt to floor types and levels of debris.
  • Filtration – Emphasizing the importance of advanced filtration technology to prevent fine debris from recirculating in your home. We think this is important for all homes, but people who are particularly concerned with allergies will also find this helpful.
  • Power – Assessing vacuum suction and power.
  • Debris Pickup – Last but not least, let’s not forget how important basic debris pickup is to choosing the best vacuum. Some vacuums will have great debris pickup regardless the floor type, and some may just do better on one floor type more than another. Either way, we can help you find the right vacuum for you.

We value the trust you place in Vacuum Wars, striving constantly to deserve it by offering in-depth, real-world insights. Your trust fuels our commitment to rigorous evaluations that genuinely help in choosing the right vacuum for your needs.
