Cleaning experts pick top vacuums for hardwood floors

The Housekeeping Institute asked leading cleaning experts to recommend the best vacuum cleaners for hardwood floors.

Hardwood flooring in Wirral homes looks great, but they require maintenance. Loose dirt and debris can easily be removed with a good quality vacuum cleaner. There are so many types of cleaners to choose from. Which one is the best is the question that the Good Housekeeping Institute wanted answering by cleaning experts.

The first thing to look out for is a cleaner with no bristles or soft bristles that won’t scratch the floor. Some experts recommend a cleaner that does not have a roller as they can also scratch the surface. Strong suction is needed to lift dirt trapped in the gaps between planks. The best vacuum cleaners named by cleaning experts were:

  • Best upright – Hoover React Powered Reach Plus
  • Best value – BESTEK Corded Stick Upright
  • Best Canister: Miele Compact C1 Turbo Team
  • Best cordless: Dyson V11
  • Best robot cleaner: iRobot Roomba i7+
  • Best wet/dry: BISSELL Cross|Wave Floor Cleaner
  • Best 2-in-1: Swiffer Sweep and Vac

Consumer organisations like Good Housekeeping Institute and Which? regularly test vacuum cleaners for their suitability for hardwood floors and other types of flooring. Cleaners need to effectively remove dirt and clean along the edges without damaging the floor.

Natural hardwood floors in Wirral rooms will last a very long time provided they are maintained and regularly cleaned with vacuums that are specifically designed for use on wood floors.
