Most current hand-held vacuum cleaners have a built-in rechargeable battery, so they do not rely on a connection to the socket. Also for the reason, the small suckers are usually significantly weaker than conventional vacuum cleaners(swiffer wet jet hardwood). A hand-held vacuum cleaner can therefore only be an option in addition to the normal vacuum cleaner, but the handy devices are often very helpful in practice. Dust fluff on the floor, crumbs on the dining table, cat litter or also hair in the bathroom – in such small but clearly visible problems is a battery suction device almost in its element. In the ideal case, such a device is always ready for use and always accessible. But not only the charging time and the possible operating time are decisive here. At least as important are the suction force and the emptying of the dust container.

The test procedure
All devices were thoroughly tested and then evaluated in 5 categories with a score between 1 and 100. Finally, the overall evaluation is calculated from the individual evaluations. Here we would like to briefly present the different categories of values and explain how the scores are obtained.
Suction: For many, it is probably the most important point, because it ultimately tells you how powerful a device sucks and how much dirt particles are absorbed on different substrates. Sand, flour, rice, hair, fabric fibers and some other impurities are sucked on hard floors and carpet floors of different depths. The more a device absorbs, the higher the score is.
Equipment:The rating in the area is determined primarily by the offered scope of a vacuum cleaner. Are all important attachments included, and perhaps even one or the other special feature, such as replacement filters or vacuum cleaner bags? But also features like an electronically controllable suction power or a good HEPA filter provide for pluses.
Processing: Here, on the one hand, the quality of the materials used is graded, on the other hand the overall processing quality of a device. High-quality plug-in nozzles and a heavy floor nozzle also ensure a high rating.
Handling:Easy-to-run pulleys, a reliable cable feed or the action radius are reflected in this evaluation. In addition, this also includes the amount of maintenance and the need for maintenance work such as changing the filter and bag.
Price / performance: For the valuation we place the offered performance, ie all other value categories, in relation to the price of the respective vacuum cleaner. The lower the price, the better cuts here, even an otherwise average device.
Overall valuation : (best vacuum for wood floors)For the overall valuation the arithmetic mean is formed from all five individual evaluations. This does not only tell you about the general quality of a vacuum cleaner, but also about the performance in relation to the price you are calling.
