Although upright vacuum cleaners are designed to mainly shine in cleaning large areas, they can be handy in any home. Their distinct, heavy type usually makes a wider dirt shelf, which can be useful if you have a huge mess to clean. They are easy to use. They are also fantastic for washing the furniture, and without too much problem, they can remove any pet fur and dirt. However, upright vacuums can be less mobile and versatile than the stick or canister versions, particularly on an escalator or other more restricted areas.
Best Upright Vacuum Collection
Among the vacuums that we have reviewed, these choices were picked based on performance, style, collection of characteristics, and price. See our list of the best vacuums for carpets, the best vacuums for high-pile carpets, and the best vacuums.
Miele Dynamic U1 PowerLine
The Miele Dynamic U1 PowerLine is the best upright vacuum for low floors we have tested. This upright cable model provides excellent efficiency on surfaces such as hardwood and linoleum. It quickly clears all pet fur onto dense material such as cereals and smaller scraps like rice.
It is well-built, with quality plastic construction, smoothly rolling wheels, and a telescoping wand made of aluminum. It's also easy to maintain, as the parts that require maintenance are readily available. It has a very long power cord, which allows you to clean large spaces without swapping outlets.
Unfortunately, it doesn't have a HEPA filter fitted as standard. It's also very bulky and heavy, making it difficult to carry around. Owing to its swiveling head, it offers decent maneuverability for a vacuum of its size and weight.
Dyson Ball Animal 2
The Dyson Ball Animal 2 is the best upright vacuum cleaner we've tried for carpet cleaning. It performs remarkably well on low and high-stacked tapestry due to its self-adjusting head, which removes everything from pet fur to coarse debris such as grit, and can quickly sweep on shaggy surfaces.
However, it isn't very easy to assemble because it doesn't use the easy-clip mechanisms found in other Dyson models. It's also heavy, so moving with it isn't easy. Its plastic design also gives it a cheap feeling.
Bissel PowerForce Helix
The BISSELL PowerForce Helix is the best budget vacuum we have tested. It is a good lightweight model, which makes it convenient for you to transport from place to place. It may also be useful to clean crevices or racks with its half-hand design. It is ideal for low-pile tapestries, as it accumulates big and small scraps and pet fur.
