Hi, I’m Garrick, founder of Best Cordless Vacuum Guide, and I’d like to say thank you for dropping by.
Like most of you, the first thing I look at before buying something online is reviews.
Unfortunately, there’s an uptick of fake reviews of folks getting paid to say only nice things about the product.
This is where I come in – to provide honest feedback about vacuum cleaners (mainly cordless) based on product testing.
I thoroughly test each vacuum I review, putting them through different experiments to gauge usability, cleaning performance, and much more, depending on the product type.
Vacuum cleaner prices range between less than a hundred to thousands, so you’ll want to research all the details to make an informed decision before purchasing.
I want you to avoid buyer’s remorse and waste time going through the process of returning the item.
How Can This Site Help Me Find the Right Cordless Vacuum?
Simple. I test these products by combining different experiments to check different parameters.
For example, I do cleaning tests in cordless vacuums to check how well these machines handle different debris types.
Another is the fog test, where I run the vacuum through a fog machine to check if it leaks visually.
These are just some examples of the rigorous testing these products must undergo to write a single review article.
Who Do I Help?
Part of it is monetary, to earn a living and feed my family. Part of it is my fascination for technology.
The vacuum cleaner industry is ever-evolving, with new tech coming out annually.
The geek in me wants to check out the latest tech firsthand, and vacuum cleaners, mundane as it sounds, ain’t that boring anymore.
Technology is evolving at a fast pace, and never in my wildest dreams would I think that cordless vacuums can replace upright vacuums in the right environment.
Speaking of upright vacuums, you’ll notice I have many old articles about these products sitting around the blog.
That’s part of the genesis of this site – writing reviews based on consumer reviews. I say this for the sake of transparency.
However, I changed the site’s direction when an opportunity arose to review a robot vacuum (ILIFE, specifically).
Why Should You Trust Me?
Most reviews from 2018 onwards are based on actual product tests and usage.
I buy most of the items you see, not everything, but the most in-demand vacuums to see how good they are and to gain some traction in the SERPs.
Yes, some are sent to me for testing, like the Roborock products you see, but I don’t charge anything for the review to avoid bias.
Everything you see on this website is based on data gathered from experiments and observations from using the product.
How Did You Come Up with the “Best Of” Lists?
These “best of” lists are based on data gathered from individual reviews. I don’t just base it on numbers since other factors, like usability and price, come into play.
So, it’s a more nuanced approach.
Here are a few to get you started.
- Best Cordless Vacuums
- Best Cordless Vacuums for Hard Floors
- Best Cordless Vacuums for Carpets
- Best Self-Emptying Robot Vacuums
You’ll notice that these articles are long and in-depth since I have to cram so much info.
How Do I Determine the Best?
Saying that one product is “best” would be grossly irresponsible because everyone’s needs differ.
A $400 cordless wouldn’t be the best for someone who can’t afford such.
Or a cheap, underpowered stick vacuum won’t cut it for someone looking for a decent tool to clean their dining room floor.
So, the “best” will depend on what you’ll need. I lay out the facts based on different tests and rank them from best to least. Sometimes, I use tiers.
The review process is painstakingly tedious and can last for several days.
How Do I Make Money?
Cordless Vacuum Guide participates in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
The majority of vacuums (and carpet cleaners) I review can be found on Amazon. I’m also a participant in the GearBest affiliate program.
You’ll notice that we include primarily Amazon and Walmart links I discuss in the articles.
Whenever you click the links and purchase, I receive a small percentage of the purchase price from Amazon (and GearBest).
And even if this means I would like you to purchase stuff from Amazon through my links, I have no bias towards any of the products I review.
My goal is to be here long-term, so there’s no point in me trying to make a quick buck.
About Garrick Dee (The Man Behind This Blog)
I’m Garrick, the man behind all the reviews you read in this blog. If you want a little personal background, here’s my story.
Even though my home didn’t have a square meter of carpet, I still needed a vacuum cleaner.
Dust seems always to find its way on the table, keyboard, and all the hard-to-reach areas around my home.
I found myself looking for something more efficient to clean dust and dirt around my home.
This eventually led me to start this blog because I couldn’t find a site detailing how it would perform, what to expect regarding battery life, features, pros and cons, charging time, and other vital information.
My goal is to give you information that you can easily digest that’ll answer questions about your needs at home and base YOUR decision on these rather than buying something because of the brand name.
If you have any questions about cordless vacuums, please get in touch with me.
