Remember that you get what you pay for. McCabe recommends spending a minimum of $150 on your new vacuum. “I know that’s a little hard for someone to understand when there are $30-$50 ones out there,” he said. “But you really don’t want to skimp on something like this — it improves your air quality and is the only object that really cleans your carpet.” If you’re willing to splurge, he says there are some really nice high-end ones that cost up to $1,200, but that $400-$500 is a reasonable price for a top of the line one that will last for a long time without much maintenance.”

Have your own Criteria

“I wasn’t concerned with how many awards a vacuum had won or how many special features it had. In fact, from my experience over the years, more features just meant more things that could break. After years of trial and error, the only criteria I cared about were (in this order): (1) Ability to clean; (2) Durability; (3) Weight (if possible, lighter weight was preferable so the kids could use it too); (4) No expensive upkeep (some vacuums had expensive bags, filters etc.); (5) Allergen-friendly (if possible, though many allergen and HEPA vacuums weren’t very effective).”

The website Real Simple Meantime came up with its list of recommended vacuum cleaners in the market today. Here’s their take for handheld vacuums commonly used in vehicles: “Dirt Devil Flipout Lithium Powered Cordless Hand Vac — This powerful handheld comes with two attachments that make it really versatile for such a small gadget. The rotating handle allows me to get the best angle for whatever area I’m cleaning. And the crevice tool easily tackled the space underneath the appliances in my kitchen (that I don’t think have ever seen a vacuum… ever). Between its long-lasting charge and compact size, it was perfect for my small apartment. Actually, I wish I had this unit back in college—it would have done wonders in my dorm room.”
