The Dyson Omni-Glide vacuum is cordless, lightweight and easy to maneuver around furniture and corners or in narrow passageways in your home. Keep in mind this vacuum is specially designed to work on hardwood floors and might not perform to your standards on carpeting or other types of flooring your home.

It is battery operated and comes with a charging port. It also converts to a handheld vacuum with the click of a button to reach difficult or tight spaces.

One reviewer pointed out that it’s great for hardwood floors because it’s delicate and won’t damage them: “Absolutely love it! Makes my 25-year-old hardwood floors shine like new. Cleans so great and doesn't scratch the hardwood like some other vacuums. The bottom width is only 8"; however, it makes it easier to maneuver in and out of spaces and along the baseboard easily.”

Smart: this Wi-Fi–connected robovac. Smarter: you for buying it at this steal of a markdown.
$179 at Walmart

Cleaning your home is a breeze with this Wi-Fi–enabled smart vacuum by Shark.

Over time it will learn the placement of furniture as well to avoid damaging any items you have in your home.

Just program it and let it do its job. The Ion Robot runs for 120 minutes between charges and features three different brushes for collecting debris from all types of flooring in your home. It works with your Google Assistant or Alexa to make life easy.

One reviewer called this vacuum life-changing and rated it 10/10: “When I moved into my new apartment, I made a promise to myself that I'd keep my floors free of cat fur, litter, and other debris by sweeping and vacuuming as often as possible. This helped me keep my promise without actually having to do extra work! It's so easy to set up, and you don't have to be tech-savvy at all. It's fairly quiet, and the side brushes allow the Shark to really get the dirt in the corners and baseboards. It can handle the excessive cat fur without any trouble at all, and it's super easy to empty.”

Whole-machine HEPA filtration ensures that allergens and bacteria are trapped inside the machine, not expelled back into the home.
$289 at Amazon

This iconic Dyson vac glides across carpets and hard floors with ease while trapping allergens and bacteria for good. The result? More breathable air and a super clean home.

"OMG, we nearly half filled the dust bin, mostly fine lint and fine dust particles in one one large room of month-old carpeting. The self-adjusting floor type leveler feature works great for carpet or wood laminate floors or tile. Great suction deep cleans; easy to maneuver and clean the room. This Dyson is great!"

This digital-age wonder can't prevent Fido or Fluffy from logging on to your living room floor. It will, however, avoid installing a broadband of smeared doo-doo all over the place.

One reviewer who gave the product five stars had this to say: “The J7+ has exceeded my expectations. I purchased this Vaccumn back in Oct 2021. It does a great job in my 1200 sqft home. It can clean the entire space in one charge, with barley any battery charge remaining. It doesn't get stuck and it tends to clean very thoroughly.”

This aptly-named vac covers the floor like a shark covers its ground. Its self-cleaning brush roll means powerful fur pickup with no hair wrap in sight.

"I love Shark vacuums," wrote this Shark-o-phile. "It seems they are always at the cutting edge of cleaning products. I got this for my 84-year-old Mom who has a larger-named brand vacuum but it’s now too cumbersome for her to use. Enter this beauty! I think she vacuumed the times the first week she started using this. This is a nice vacuum for seniors. It works like a champ. The filter is easy to clean and all in all this makes vacuuming and cleaning a little more tolerable!"

Numbers don't lie, so get a load of these: 250-watt brushless motor, 22 kPa suction, 53 mins runtime on a single charge, 8-cell battery, 3 suction modes, and 4-layer filtration system. Oh...and it's $270 off.

"Better than my Roomba," boasts this happy homemaker. "This stick vacuum should be renamed to the Swivel Master 3000.... It’s awesome! It moves around my dining table like a truffle pig in spring.... I love how you can just grab it quick and clean up the five million crumbs my kids leave behind after every meal. I can finally vacuum the stairs every other day with ease. It’s light, it’s easy, you only need medium speed to pick up most stuff."

Just press "clean" and watch the Roomba get to work.
