Most Popular Vacuum Cleaner Brands
People often choose vacuum cleaners according to the 'Brand', not according to the specifications, features, or price.
Many brands manufacture very similar models with very similar weight, power, suction, air filtration, cable length (if present), battery voltage and dirt bin/vacuum bag capacity, price, and similar.
Choosing among such vacuum models often means going into many detail and overthinking, which in the end means choosing according to personal preferences.
Note that smaller brands want to become large ones and thus are trying to produce high quality appliances at acceptable prices - their products are often cheaper than similar products of renown, large(r) brands.
On the other hand, large brands are large because they produce good products at acceptable prices.
Generally, if you are not certain about two products, check reviews and recommendations of other people and, if you are not sure yet, go for more reputable brand.
Note that there are many vacuum brands on the market, if we would have to pick just 5 most popular brands, that would be:
Bissell is one of the most popular manufacturers of vacuum, carpet and steam cleaners and their accessories.
Bissell's products are very often among the top of various 'the best of' lists and with a good reason - good quality at affordable prices.
Dyson is the manufacturer of full product lines of vacuum cleaners, fans, hair dryers, air heaters, air purifiers etc.
Dyson vacuums are often far from being the cheapest in their class, but they are designed and manufactured to be the best, and they are often really the best, in terms of performances. In terms of actual price, don't expect Dyson to be cheap, since even certified refurbished models come with a nice price tag.
But, what you pay is what you get.
iRobot is manufacturer of the popular robot vacuums, robot mops and robot pool vacuums, designed to keep the home clean.
Although robot vacuums alone can't keep entire home clean, iRobot Roombas have set standards regarding robot vacuum cleaners and practically all other robot vacuums are being compared with the Roombas first.
Miele manufactures various household appliances, vacuum cleaners included.
Their canister vacuums are known to be tough, durable, resilient to use and abuse, they do their job and can last for ages.
However, they are also far from being cheap, at least initially. But in the long run ...
Their uprights, stick, robot and other vacuums are not as popular as their canister vacuums.
Anyway, people having Miele vacuums, when they have chance to buy a new vacuum cleaner, they rarely change the brand.
Shark is one of the most popular vacuum brands, not only in US, but also in the world.
They produce full line of vacuum cleaners, carpet washers, polishers and other cleaning tools, appliances and accessories, for both commercial and home use.
Shark units are often on top of many 'the best' and comparisons lists with good reasons - good quality and warranty at acceptable prices.
Again, choose your new vacuum cleaner according to your individual needs and preferences.
For example, author of this article has as the main home vacuum cleaner Panasonic corded bagged canister vacuum (10+ years old and whatever it vacuums, it still works) and as the second vacuum cleaner Electrolux convertible 2-in-1 cordless bagless unit. And they do their job well :)
