The easiest way to keeps your hardwood flooring free from dust and debris is to use a cordless vacuum. Because there’s no cord, there’s nothing to get in the way when maneuvering around furniture but still enough suction power to get the job done. We researched some of the top models available to help you find the best cordless hardwood floor vacuum. First, let’s look at some key features to keep in mind while you shop.
Type: All of these products are stick vacuums, but here’s the kicker: a lot of them are 2-in-1 designs that convert quickly and easily to a convenient handheld. Believe it or not, one of them can actually be used as a canister.
Bagless: Bagless vacuums are much more convenient and less messy than vacuums with bags which is why all of our top picks are bagless models. All of them have easy to empty dust cups that are simple to clean.
Runtime: This is how long the battery lasts without any attachments added. When you add an attachment, the vacuum has to work a little harder to pull air through so they will shorten battery life a bit.
Pieces: This includes the vacuum itself, battery and charger, and any additional brushes or other accessories. Some come with quite a few attachments but if you want something a little simpler and straightforward, we have that, too.
Weight: All of these are fairly lightweight, perfect for carrying up and down stairs. This weight is for the whole vacuum. If it’s a 2-in-1 and you use the handheld, it will be even lighter than the weight we provided.
Warranty: The good news is every single one of these vacuums comes with a warranty. They vary from 1 to 3 years. Make sure you read the fine print so you know what’s covered and what isn’t.
