best vacuums for spring cleaning

Nothing makes me happier than when I have time to give my home a deep cleaning. I love to dust, vacuum, clean the windows, and wipe down the walls. Everyone has a different place to start when deep cleaning the house, but if you’re like me, you start by pulling out your vacuum cleaner to clean your floors. With the right model, you can also reach up to your cobwebs, get under the couch for those dust bunnies, or schedule it so it can head out and do a bit of cleaning on its own.

For detailed insight, check out out vacuum cleaning buying guide. But here’s a look at a few of the best vacuums for spring cleaning. I’ve organized them into categories – upright, canister, robot, and stick. No matter what type of home or budget you have, you can find a vacuum cleaner to suit you.

Canister vacuums

Canister vacuums are one of the most versatile types and a great choice for spring cleaning. They are designed with a long hose that attaches to the body of the vacuum. The body holds the motor and space for a dust bin, and the hose connects to a power head so you can clean carpets and floors. Most types of canister models have several attachments you can use to clean your blinds, reach up to get dust strings on the ceiling, or clean your car. With a large dust bin, you won’t have to empty out your dirt and debris as often as you would with smaller type.

Canister models are easy to maneuver because they are lightweight and very compact. You can navigate around all types of furniture, and with the long hose attachment, you can also reach into tight spaces to pick up dust bunnies or clean under your couch. Canister vacuum cleaners also have strong suction, powerful motors, and constant power because they plug into the wall via a power cord. When you’re done cleaning and you’d like to store your canister vacuum, they are easy to tuck away in a closet or other small space.

Upright vacuum

An upright vacuum cleaner is an all-in-one machine with powerful suction, and they easily clean your home’s floors. If you don’t like the idea of pulling a canister behind you while you clean, an upright vacuum could be the best vacuum for you. They have a self-contained style with the motor, handle, and dust bin all in the same unit. You can also disconnect the hose and use it to clean the cracks of your couch or other hard-to-reach areas.

Upright vacuums are great for cleaning large rooms because they have a wide cleaning path, and the upright design makes them easy to maneuver. They plug into the wall via a power cord, have powerful motors, and intense suction to pick up all types of debris. Pet owners love upright cleaners because they can easily pull up pet hair and other dirt from your carpets, and you can also adjust the height of the powerhead to glide under furniture or over different carpet types.

Some upright models use bags while others have a dust bin you can empty out after each use. Storage is easy too – wrap the power cord around the vacuum and pop it in a closet.

Stick vacuums

Don’t have a lot of storage space for your vacuum? One of the best vacuums you can find is a stick vacuum. It makes spring cleaning and daily cleaning simple. If you don’t have the space for a model as large as a canister or an upright, this is one type you can hang on the wall or stash away in a small storage space. They are designed with a powerhead that attaches to a long hose, and you can remove the hose and use it as a handheld to clean your couch or car.

Most stick vacuums are cordless so they don’t have a power cord to restrict your movements. They run on rechargeable batteries and many types have a docking station that stores and charges it at the same time. Stick vacuums are very versatile and have multiple attachments. You can switch from a large powerhead to a small powerhead so you can clean your mattress or your car’s trunk. Emptying your dustbin is also easy on a stick vacuum. You just tap the release button right over your trash can and your bin will empty out.

Stick vacuums will clean your home from rafters to floors, and they are a great choice for anyone with allergies as some types have built-in HEPA filters. See our cordless stick vacuum buying guide for more details.

Robot vacuum

You may wonder why a robot vacuum would be a good choice for spring cleaning, but after using one myself I can tell you it’s like having an extra set of helping hands around the house. While I’m dusting or cleaning windows, my robot vacuum is thoroughly cleaning the floors.

Robot vacuums have a round design so they can navigate around different obstacles in your home. They use rechargeable batteries, and to charge they use a docking station that also acts as a storage spot. Robot vacuums are designed to clean on their own, and you can program your robot vacuum to clean on a schedule, head out for a thorough cleaning, or spot-clean an area with a spill. Depending on the vacuum you choose you’ll be able to schedule your cleaning via your robot vacuum’s app, use your voice assistant to ask it to clean, or just tap the top of the vacuum to send it off.

The biggest benefit of robot vacuums is that they keep you completely hands-free. You can set your vacuum on a schedule and it will clean at the same time every day. There are some models with AI to intelligently map out your floors so it knows where it has been cleaned and where it needs to go. If the robot vacuum’s battery is empty before it’s finished cleaning your floors it will head back to the docking station, recharge, and then resume cleaning in the spot it left off at. The low profile design also means it can cruise under furniture, and most models have smart sensors so they can automatically avoid obstacles like stairs.

Just because they run on rechargeable batteries and clean your floors on their own doesn’t mean robot vacuums aren’t powerful. The latest models have strong suction so they can pick up all types of dirt, debris, and pet hair from your floor. The built-in dust bin on robot vacuums is easy to empty, and some models have a docking station with dedicated space to empty the dust bin. When it’s done cleaning the vacuum will roll up to the docking station to recharge and automatically dump the dust itself.
