Many peo­ple think that an upright vac­u­um clean­er can only serve as a pair to a con­ven­tion­al floor stand­ing device. How­ev­er, mod­ern mod­els are so pow­er­ful, autonomous and ver­sa­tile that they can com­plete­ly replace all clean­ing gad­gets. As it is right, a good upright vac­u­um clean­er is equipped with a large set of noz­zles for dif­fer­ent types of coat­ings, and more expen­sive mod­els also have a tur­bo brush for clean­ing car­pets and fur­ni­ture.

Budget models

If you are ready to clean every day, and your apart­ment is small, an inex­pen­sive mod­el may be enough for high-qual­i­ty clean­ing.

SUPRA VCS-4011

  • Suc­tion pow­er: 100W
  • Work­ing time: 15 min. at max­i­mum pow­er
  • Con­tain­er vol­ume: 0.5 l
  • Approx­i­mate price: 4000 rubles.
One of the cheapest cordless cordless vacuum cleaners on the market.  But the model is not bad: there are 2 power levels, a telescopic tube, a motorized brush included.
One of the cheap­est cord­less cord­less vac­u­um clean­ers on the mar­ket. But the mod­el is not bad: there are 2 pow­er lev­els, a tele­scop­ic tube, a motor­ized brush includ­ed.

Such a vac­u­um clean­er is quite suit­able for apart­ments with lam­i­nate, par­quet or linoleum. Its engine is weak com­pared to more expen­sive mod­els, the suc­tion pow­er is only 100 watts, but this may be enough for hard sur­faces. The bat­tery life is not indi­cat­ed — there is only infor­ma­tion that at max­i­mum speed the bat­tery lasts for 15 min­utes. We can assume that in econ­o­my mode, auton­o­my is at least twice as large, so clean­ing the apart­ment with­out recharg­ing will work with­out prob­lems. Among the short­com­ings is the lack of a HEPA fil­ter.

Xiaomi Deerma VC20 Plus

  • Suc­tion pow­er: 150W
  • Work­ing time: up to 30 min.
  • Con­tain­er vol­ume: 0.6 l
  • Approx­i­mate price: 4,500 rubles.

Anoth­er option for a bud­get vac­u­um clean­er: inex­pen­sive, but good in terms of clean­ing qual­i­ty. The spec­i­fi­ca­tions list a suc­tion pow­er of 150W, although we have a feel­ing that this is the pow­er con­sump­tion.

The vac­u­um clean­er comes with brush­es for the floor (with elec­tric dri­ve), for cracks and for fur­ni­ture. The bat­tery lasts for 30 min­utes of oper­a­tion, but if you use the max­i­mum pow­er, this time is reduced to 15 min­utes. Xiao­mi Deer­ma VC20 Plus uses a cyclone fil­tra­tion sys­tem, there is also a HEPA fil­ter, so that all the dust remains in the con­tain­er.

Sep­a­rate­ly, we note a con­ve­nient han­dle in the form of a ring. It is very con­ve­nient to hold the vac­u­um clean­er for it: you can take it both by the cen­ter of the han­dle (when you clean the floor) and by the sides (for exam­ple, to reach a shelf on the wall). In short, a great option for your mon­ey.

    The best wash­ing vac­u­um clean­er for the home: how to choose and how much it will cost?

Middle class

As usu­al, the “gold­en mean”. Devices in this seg­ment are pow­er­ful enough to pro­vide high-qual­i­ty clean­ing, and they also have a good pack­age. They usu­al­ly do not have inno­v­a­tive options, but the price is quite accept­able.

Polaris PVCS 4000 HandStick PRO

  • Suc­tion pow­er: 160W
  • Work­ing time: up to 60 min.
  • Con­tain­er vol­ume: 0.6 l
  • Approx­i­mate price: 17,000 rubles.

One of the fea­tures of this vac­u­um clean­er is an ultra­vi­o­let lamp placed in a small elec­tric brush. Due to it, the device also dis­in­fects the sur­face after clean­ing, which may be rel­e­vant for fam­i­lies with small chil­dren.

As befits a mid­dle-class mod­el, Polaris PVCS 4000 Hand­Stick­PRO is made of high-qual­i­ty plas­tic, all con­nec­tions are easy to dis­as­sem­ble and assem­ble. The invert­er motor is very reli­able: it has a 10-year war­ran­ty! It also pro­vides decent suc­tion pow­er (160 W), which is enough even to clean long pile car­pets. The body of the main brush is made with­out a lead­ing edge: this allows you to get close to the walls with a soft roller.

The kit includes 5 dif­fer­ent attach­ments, a ver­ti­cal park­ing plat­form and a wall mount. Accord­ing to the pass­port, the bat­tery lasts for up to 60 min­utes, accord­ing to our prac­tice in a real apart­ment, auton­o­my is at the lev­el of 40 min­utes. That is, for two full-fledged clean­ings, the aver­age “kopeck piece” will be enough.

Jimmy H8Pro

  • Suc­tion pow­er: 160W
  • Work­ing time: 70 min.
  • Con­tain­er vol­ume: 0.5 l
  • Approx­i­mate price: 24,000 rubles.

Vac­u­um clean­er not only with high suc­tion pow­er, but also with its auto­mat­ic adjust­ment. A con­ve­nient option if you have not only hard sur­faces in your house, but also car­pets — for clean­ing them, just the desired pow­er is high­er.


Jim­my H8Pro has a rich pack­age. First­ly, there are two motor­ized brush­es at once — one for the floor, the oth­er for fur­ni­ture. Sec­ond­ly, there is a hinge and a flex­i­ble hose. With their help, you can clean sur­faces that a con­ven­tion­al vac­u­um clean­er with a rigid pipe can­not reach: for exam­ple, the space under the bed or on a high shelf.

Jim­my H8Pro also has a con­ve­nient stor­age sys­tem. It does not have a wall mount, but there is a floor base on which it is secure­ly fixed. The base can be placed any­where, and you do not have to drill holes in the wall. If there is no out­let near the base, it does not mat­ter either. The bat­tery of this mod­el is remov­able, there is a spe­cial charg­er, so you can charge it not only on the vac­u­um clean­er, but also sep­a­rate­ly. The cost of Jim­my H8Pro in Moscow stores is about 25,000 rubles.

If you have a large apart­ment or a pri­vate house, a lot of car­pet­ing, it is bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to a cord­less vac­u­um clean­er from the pre­mi­um seg­ment.

Samsung VS20R9046S3

  • Con­tain­er vol­ume: 0.5 l
  • Approx­i­mate price: 45,000 rubles.

The Kore­an man­u­fac­tur­er has quite a few dif­fer­ent mod­els of cord­less vac­u­um clean­ers. This one is one of the most pow­er­ful (200 W). The kit includes 5 dif­fer­ent noz­zles, as well as a floor base, which is also used for charg­ing.

All con­trols are locat­ed on the han­dle: these are the pow­er and pow­er adjust­ment but­tons. There, on the han­dle, there is also a small screen that dis­plays the pow­er lev­el (there are three of them, they can switch auto­mat­i­cal­ly), the type of noz­zle and a warn­ing in case of acci­den­tal block­ing of the brush roller. There is not much infor­ma­tion about the fil­ter­ing sys­tem, but it is quite advanced, trap­ping 99.999% of dust. The dust con­tain­er can be eas­i­ly removed and dis­as­sem­bled. What’s more, it can be com­plete­ly washed under water, which is also con­ve­nient.

Dyson V15 Detect Absolute

  • Suc­tion pow­er: 230W

We can say with­out a twinge of con­science that Dyson vac­u­um clean­ers are one of the best cord­less vac­u­um clean­ers. The Dyson V15 is a recent addi­tion, with solu­tions that you won’t find in the com­pe­ti­tion. All the details are in our test.

For exam­ple, on one of the brush­es there is a laser source that illu­mi­nates the space in front of the lead­ing edge with a beam. So you bet­ter see the con­di­tion of the floor — in fact, almost every speck of dust is vis­i­ble. The V15 has very high suc­tion pow­er (for the wire­less mod­el), around 230W. At the same time, a spe­cial piezo sen­sor cal­cu­lates how much and what kind of debris gets into your vac­u­um clean­er.

Such infor­ma­tion is not only inter­est­ing, but also use­ful for opti­mal set­ting of the pow­er mode. If you move to an area with high pol­lu­tion, the pow­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly increas­es. More­over, there are not 2 adjust­ment steps (as in many oth­er vac­u­um clean­ers), but much more.

The set is very rich: there is a hinge, and three motor­ized brush­es, and addi­tion­al noz­zles. Of course, the vac­u­um clean­er is not cheap — about 64,000 rubles.

This is also a cord­less vac­u­um clean­er, but we sin­gled it out sep­a­rate­ly because it is spe­cial: it has a wet clean­ing func­tion. That is, one device replaces your usu­al vac­u­um clean­er and a mop with a rag.

Atv­el F16 has two tanks. The first is filled with clean water. On the han­dle of the vac­u­um clean­er there is a trig­ger for sup­ply­ing water to the elec­tric brush. The moist­ened roller wipes the sur­face, and then the dirty water is sucked from it into anoth­er con­tain­er for dirty water. We made a video show­ing how it all works.

These same vac­u­um clean­ers can pick up liq­uids if you spill some­thing. It is also great for dog own­ers who bring mud and snow from walk­ing on their paws in the autumn-win­ter peri­od.

Want to clean even more effi­cient­ly? Try a steam mop: it is con­ve­nient to clean not only the floor, but also uphol­stered fur­ni­ture or ceram­ic tiles. Anoth­er great option is robot­ic vac­u­um clean­ers that will keep the apart­ment clean on their own.
