What Is The Best Vacuum Cleaner in Canada?

That is a very common, albeit a very general question. But most people who are in the market for a vacuum cleaner start their search by asking this or some variation of the same question. Questions such as, what is the best vacuum to buy? Best vacuum 2020? Top rated vacuums, best brand of vacuum cleaner and such. you get the idea.

For the sake of this argument, we are only going to focus on Residential Vacuum Cleaners.

  • Are our suggestions biased? Absolutely.
  • Do we stand behind what we suggest? 100%.
  • Are our suggestions based on 21 years of having sold and serviced thousands of vacuum cleaners? You Bet.
  • Should you take our word for it? No. Always do your research first. But this is a good start.

So the first answer that comes to mind is:

What is the best vacuum cleaner For What? What type of flooring to be exact. Here are the most common scenarios and our recommendations. Throughout the years, we have learned that people and their vacuum needs fall into one of these categories:

Mostly Bare Floors, No Pet Hair:

Homes with mostly bare floors such as hardwood and tile and maybe a couple of flat or low pile area rugs here and there. If there is pet hair, its not a lot and a dedicated carpet attachment is not required. Models below come equipped with a Combination floor tool. That is one tool capable of handling both hard floors and rugs.

Best vacuums in this category:

Bare Floors, Some Area Rugs, Some Flat Carpets, No to Low Amount of Pet Hair:

Homes with a combination of Bare Floors and Area Rugs. If there is Wall to Wall carpeting, its mostly flat or low pile carpet where a dedicated carpet tool is very handy if not necessary. Models below come equipped with an Air Driven Carpet tool (Turbo Brush), which is perfect for low to medium pile rugs, as well as a bare floor tool.

Best Vacuums in This Category:

Mixed Floors, No to Moderate Amount of Pet Hair:

Homes with a combination of Wall to Wall carpets (broadloom), Area Rugs and Bare Floors. Vacuums in this category come equipped with a dedicated carpet tool (Electric Powerhead) and a separate bare floor tool. There is a moderate amount of pet and human hair.

Best vacuums in this category:

Canisters Vacuums:

Upright Vacuums:

Mixed Floors With High Pile Soft Carpets. No to High Amount of Pet Hair.

Homes with thick, soft, high pile Wall to Wall carpets or Area Rugs, and bare floors. Models below come equipped with an “Electric Powerhead” with a height adjustability feature.

Best Vacuums In This Category:

Mixed Floors With Lots of Pet Hair:

Homes with a combination of Wall To Wall Carpets, Area Rugs, Bare Floors, but most importantly, lots and lots of pet hair. In this case, you may find a bagged vacuum cleaner may not be the best option as pet hair tends to fill up the bags very quickly. Hence the model below is a bagless model equipped with an electric powerhead which is perfect for removing pet hair and pet dander from carpets.


What is the Best Vacuum Cleaner Style?

There are generally three styles of vacuum cleaners:

  1. Canister Vacuums: Most popular. Heaviest Part (motor and dust compartment) sits on the floor, reducing pressure on your hands, shoulders and wrists. Easy to maneuver around obstacles and underneath furniture. Currently a sold choice.
  2. Upright Vacuums: Has its die-hard fan base and are best for places with lots of carpets and little to no stairs, as they tend to be harder to carry. We only carry the SEBO brand of upright vacuums. They are made in Germany and have an amazing track record when it comes to quality and performance.

What is the best? Bagged Vacuum Cleaners or Bagless?

Most industry professionals still believe bagged vacuums provide better filtration and are easier to maintain. And we agree. However, some people prefer a bagless model. That's fine too. We don't judge. Also, in some cases, some folks have so much pet hair to pick up that a bagged vacuum is not an option. They would have to change bags constantly which is a nuisance. With us, we stay away from pretty much all bagless vacuums except for the Miele brand, as they have proven to build the best quality machines with an amazing filtration system.

What are the best brands of Vacuum Cleaners?

Easy. Miele, Numatic and SEBO. Do we say that because we carry these brands or do we carry these brands because they are the best quality vacuum cleaners in the market right now? We know the answer to that, and we hope you will find the same answer in your research for the Best Vacuum Cleaners In Canada.
