Top 10 Carpet and Floor Cleaners
for December 2022

Carpet and floor cleaners clean, deodorize, and sanitize floors, carpets, and rugs. They come in a variety
of styles, including handheld, upright, and canister vacuums, upright steam cleaners, and steam mops.

In the Different Guide , our carpet and floor cleaner experts test models on cleaning performance, such as how much dirt and debris it
picks up and how quickly it cleans, as well as on ease of use, such as how easy the models are to
maneuver, how much noise they make, and how easy it is to empty the
machine. We also evaluate models' features and capabilities, such as the ability to
handle different floor types, such as carpet, hardwood, and tile, and to
clean hard floors, such as laminate and tile.

Our carpet and floor cleaner reviews are based on more than 100 models tested in the Different Guide

Lunaglow Nano 3-in-1 Vacuum Cleaner - Wet Dry Vacuum - Cordless Mop Vacuum Combo for Tile and Hardwood - Vacuum Cleaner Carpet and Floor - Self-Cleaning Vacuum Cleaner

by LunaGlow
What We like

The only true 3-in-1 vacuum cleaner we tested, this one sprays water to boot! It's very good on hardwood, but the floor brush is disappointing, and there's a battery drainage problem.

CHEF G Robot Vacuum Cleaner, 2-in-1 Robot Vacuum and Mop,1200Pa High Suction,360° Intelligent Steering,No Wi-Fi Need,Ideal for Pet Hair, Hard Floor and Carpet

by CHEF G
What We like

The Roborock JM8022A vacuum and mop robot performs each task well. The mop makes short work of hard floors, and the suction is strong enough for carpets. We like the included cleaning tablets, which dissolve in water and help make vacuuming easier.

eureka PowerSpeed Turbo Spotlight Lightweight Upright Vacuum Cleaner, for Carpet and Hard Floor, Pet Tool, Orange

eureka PowerSpeed Turbo Spotlight Lightweight Upright Vacuum Cleaner

by Midea Floorcare
What We like

Small, lightweight, and maneuverable, the Eureka PowerSpeed Turbo Spotlight has a flexible hose to reach places other home vacuums couldn't. However, it doesn't offer much suction power on hard floors, and it only works on bare floors and carpet with a flat beater brush attachment.

VacLife Stick Vacuum Cleaner

by Vaclife
What We like

This cordless stick vacuum is portable, powerful, and very versatile. It offers good dust pickup and picks up fine dirt, pet hair and carpet fuzz with ease. But it lacks a cleaning head with direct suction for small messes.
