Top 5 Vacuum Cleaner Brands According to eVacuumStore.com

by Zack 17. February 2013 06:33

With such an abundance of vacuum cleaner brands making a name for themselves, it can sometimes be difficult to choose which one is ideal for your specific living or business conditions.  Through the oftentimes overwhelming veil that is created by the cleaning industry, how is one to know which brand to choose?  Well fear not!  A list of the five best brands of vacuums has been compiled, in no particular order, to help alleviate the stress that can occasionally be associated when searching for the newest addition to your cleaning arsenal.

The first brand worth a notable mention is Miele.  Miele is a German based company that strives to provide consumers with the highest quality imaginable in terms of their upright and canister vacuum cleaners.  With over 100 years of experience in the field, it's obvious that they have applied their innovation and ingenuity to their machines, making them as consumer-friendly as possible.  Sealed HEPA filtration, durable design, light  weight, and overall silence are some of the features that help to separate Miele from the rest of the competition.  This brand has divided their vacuum cleaners into various series: the S2, S5, S6, S7 and S8 series.  The S7 series is the only series of Miele vacuum cleaners that is not canister type.  This particular series contains Miele upright vacuum cleaners, that are considered to be the best on the market today.  Similarly, the S8 line is considered to contain the highest quality canister vacuums and is also the newest series of the Miele vacuums.

Next on the list is the world-renowned brand. Electrolux.  As one of the most common household names for close to a century, Electrolux has created a name and fan base for themselves that seems to be insurmountable.  Considered to be the standard for canister, upright and central vacuums alike, this brand provides a certain quality of cleaning performance and filtration that leaves homes cleaner and fresher than they have ever been before.  From their humble beginnings with canister vacuums like the Model V and Model L, to their undeniable success with the Electrolux central vacuum systems like the PU3650 and PU3900, this brand is certain to provide you with one of the greatest ranges of machines available today.

The list of top five vacuum brands would not be complete without yet another German manufactured brand gracing its presence.  SEBO has been dropping the jaws of consumers for close to forty years due to their innovative design, causing their canister and upright vacuum cleaners to be considered the best pet vacuum around.  In fact, SEBO vacuum cleaners were some the first to have the automatic shut-off function when something gets caught in the brushroll.  This feature is ideal for pet owners, as well as any home or business owner interested in keeping their home/business and vacuum in optimum condition.

Another brand that simply cannot be overlooked when considering a new sweeper is Panasonic.  Oftentimes this brand name is associated with quality electronics, however the quality of the bagged and bagless vacuum cleaners available are definitely worth mentioning.   HEPA filtration is a standard among the majority of upright Panasonic vacuum cleaners offered by this brand which helps to guarantee that you and your family are breathing only the cleanest air imaginable; and with the option of bagged or bagless, you're sure to find a machine to suit your specific needs.  In addition to their diverse array of upright  vacuum cleaners, Panasonic canister vacuums provide one of the most versatile cleaning experiences of any brand.  Similar to the upright models, these canister style vacuums primarily operate using HEPA filtration but additionaly utilize OptiFlow technology.  This allows for a consistent flow of air in and out of the machine even when vacum vacuum bag becomes full.

Last , but certainly not least, on the list is Kirby.  This brand has been an established company for over a century and has since obtained plenty of experience with the competitive nature that is the vacuum industry.  Kirby vacuums are generally sold door to door and are made out of aluminum which makes them one of the most durable vacuum cleaners available.  Due to their aluminum bodies, these vacuums are projected to last consumers, smart enough to own one, well over thiry years.  This being the case, the only additional time and money that needs to be spent is maintaining the sweeper, which is much cheaper when compared to purchasing a new one every few years. Kirby vacuum bags are readily available for all models including the Ultimate G, the G4, G5 and G6, as well as the earlier models such as Generation 3.  Newer models such as the Kirby Sentria are also easy to obtain vacuum cleaner bags for.  Similar to the availability of the bags, Kirby vacuum parts such as brushrolls, hoses, belts and attachments are easy to come by and work together to keep your machine lasting a lifetime.

Choosing a Miele Vacuum Cleaner

by Joe 27. March 2012 10:59

If you're in the market for a new vacuum cleaner, your decision can be very hard to make. With so many different cleaning situations, it often seems easier to just take your chances on the cheapest machine Wal Mart has to offer and replace it every 6 months when it inevitably breaks. Many people forget that a vacuum cleaner is actually an appliance and should be treated as such. While there are many different types of cleaning surfaces, Miele does the best job of offering a vacuum cleaner that is capable of handling any type of mess or cleaning surface.


For users who prefer upright vacuums:

Miele S7210 Twist Upright VacuumMiele offers the S7 series upright vacuum cleaner that offers powerful suction, adjustable cleaning settings and a swiveling neck for enhanced convenience while cleaning. While most upright vacuums are much heavier than a canister, the convenience that comes with one is usually worth the extra weight that you have to carry up and down the stairs. However with Miele's premium line of upright vacuum cleaners including the Miele Twist offer all of the convenience in a very lightweight and durable design. A great advantage to using the S7 Twist is it's anti-tipping feature and extra long hose for use while cleaning stairs and other inaccessible places. When you use an Miele S7 upright vacuum in your home, you can leave the vacuum at the bottom of the stairs and use the extra long hose to clean the stairs without carrying the vacuum with you. 

Each Miele upright vacuum can be layed flat to the floor while cleaning to easily reach underneath beds, couches tables and other furniture. This is extremely convenient for use in any size home and any cleaning surface. These sweepers also have fingertips controls to switch easily from carpeting to smooth floors or from low to high pile carpeting. 

For users who prefer canister vacuums:

Miele On Board Tools


Miele also offers an excellent line of canister vacuums available with or without an electric power nozzle. The new S6 series offers machines like the Miele Onyx that come standard with an air driven turbo brush that is ideal for smooth floors and area rugs. This turbo tool does not use a belt driven beater bar so it won't scrath up your hard floors or eat up expensive rugs. However if you have wall to wall carpeting, you'll need an electrified power nozzle. The most basic machine with this power nozzle offered by Miele is the S5 Titan. The Titan is a great machine and uses the Electro Comfort power head for heavy carpeting. The power head can also be turned off at the handle for use with smooth floors.

Each Miele canister vacuum is equipped with an automatic cord rewind for easy storing as well as 3 on board attachments: a dustign brush, upholstery tool and crevice tool. All of these tools are conveniently stored on either the vario-clip that is attached to the hose or inside the body of the canister. Miele's entire line of canister vacuums are extremely durable, lightweight and efficient.
