If your stairs are carpeted, chances are you’ve looked at them before and thought that you needed to get a specific vacuum cleaner for stairs. It’s no secret that they see a lot of traffic and pick up a lot of debris. That’s why we’ve put together this handy buying guide: to help you choose one! Before we get started looking at our vacuum choices, here are some things you need to know!
Type: There are a few different types of vacuums that might work for stairs. Handheld vacuums are small and portable, while stick vacuums give you more reach. Upright vacuums are full-sized machines with greater power and suction!
HEPA Filter: A HEPA filter is a part of a sophisticated suctioning system which filters all of the dust and dirt out of the air that is cycling back into your home. They are usually washable and have a long lifespan.
Power: The vacuums on this list will either be cordless or corded. The cordless ones can be charged and taken all over the house, while the corded ones provide consistent power that is somewhat limited by the cord.
Bagless: Most of the vacuums featured here will be bagless, which mean that they have a dirt cup that needs to be emptied rather than replacing a whole bag. This is useful for quick, sanitary cleaning.
Weight: The weight of the vacuum could determine whether you can personally use it on your stairs. Some of these vacuums are definitely heavier than others, so you will have to choose based on personal preference.
Warranty: The warranty protects both you and your purchase from any defects in the manufacturing. This means that if something breaks during normal wear or use, you can get a refund or replacement during the warranty period.
That’s all you need to know about stair vacuums! Now we can show you our choices. Our top pick and budget pick are the creams of the crop, so take a look at those first before moving on to the rest of the list. There are a lot of fine home cleaning products to explore here. We’re sure you’ll find yours, so let’s get started with the stair vacuum reviews!
