What is our testing process like?
Here is a simpler version of how our testing process works:
Step 1: We find out which cordless vacuum cleaners are the best and newest.
Step 2: We buy these vacuum cleaners ourselves.
Step 3: Then we use and test these vacuum cleaners.
Step 4: We write detailed reports about our experience when we finish testing.
Step 5: We post these reports on our website for you to read, free of charge. This way, you can learn more about the vacuum cleaner before you buy it.
Let's look at the aspects we consider when testing cordless vacuum cleaners. 👀
Evaluating the cordless vacuum cleaner's design
When we evaluate the design of a cordless vacuum cleaner, we consider a few key factors. 🎯
The first thing we look at is the weight and size of the vacuum cleaner.
This helps us understand who can easily use the vacuum cleaner.
Next, we check its build quality. 🔍
We try to answer two questions while analysing its quality:
- Is the cleaner thoughtfully designed?
- Do the buttons and connectors work well, and are they conveniently placed?
Lastly, we also consider the appearance of the cleaner.
This can differ for each person because everyone has their sense of style. 🎨
Examining user-friendliness: Operating and maintaining a cordless vacuum cleaner
An essential aspect of a good vacuum cleaner is its ease of use.
The main reason for buying them is that they make cleaning and vacuuming less tedious.
Considering how much money we often spend on these modern devices, it's important that they serve their purpose. 💸
A vacuum cleaner should be easy to use and maintain.
Here are some of the things we check for every vacuum cleaner:
- Is it easy to move around rooms?
- Does it do a good job of vacuuming under furniture and in corners?
- Is it simple to switch from a handheld mode to a floor mode?
- Are the controls user-friendly?
- Is it easy to get the vacuum cleaner started?
Taking care of your vacuum cleaner is crucial to its performance and lifespan. 🔧
That's why we also pay attention to how easy each unit is to maintain.
We look at maintenance issues like:
- What parts need regular care?
- Is cleaning parts like the filter, dust bin, and floor nozzle easy?
- We also consider the battery life and how long it takes to charge.
We also check if you can buy spare parts and accessories separately.
Exploring the accessories
We will go over the functions of the vacuum cleaner and the additional parts that go with a cordless vacuum cleaner. 🧰
Each vacuum cleaner brand and model comes with different accessories, and the quality of the accessories can also vary greatly.
Often, manufacturers justify their different prices with a diverse range of additional parts.
Our reviews help to highlight these extras. 🔦
We'll help you figure out what's necessary and what's just "nice to have" so you can make the best choice.
If you know what you need, you can even save a lot of money in the end.
