Dirt Devil is no stranger to producing inexpensive vacuum cleaners. One of the best ones they’ve come out with is the Simply-Stik SD20000, which goes for just under $20.  When you purchase this vacuum, you will be getting a complete stick vac.

The bottom line is this vacuum is great. You can choose to use the vac as a stick, but you can also convert it to a handheld vac. If that wasn’t impressive enough, it’s worth pointing out that there is a crevice tool included.

Another noteworthy feature is the weight, because it only weighs just under four-pounds. The motor delivers good suction power. However, the suction is not nearly as good as your average upright vacuum, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

If you need to clean the filters, simply remove them and wash them. Navigation is simple too, thanks to the two base wheels. As for the construction of the vac, it is durable and sturdy, and the power cord is 16-feet long. Since it is so light and small, you can easily store it virtually anywhere.

Pros
  • The vacuum is ideal for multi-purpose cleaning and it can be converted into a hand vacuum.
  • The crevice tool is useful and allows you to clean spaces that are hard to get to.
  • The filter is washable.
  • It is lightweight and can easily be carried from one place to another.
Cons
  • If you want to do heavy duty cleaning, this vac is not for you. It wasn’t really designed for heavy duty vacuuming. You can give it a try, but we don’t recommend heavy duty cleaning with this vac.

Will I Get All The Features I Need with a Cheaper Machine?

The truth is that when it comes to cheaper vacuum versions, you have to really think of what exactly you are looking for. In other words, you need to know exactly the features you need your vacuum cleaner to have. It is important to note that all models that fall under $100 will most definitely sacrifice few features compared to expensive versions. They also may not last as long as well.

However, this does not mean that they are not a good investment. In a matter of fact, it may work perfectly for you. For example, if you don’t have kids or pet, you do not necessarily require a filter or any additional features to remove pet fur. A small apartment with no stairs does not need an extra-long power cable or telescopic wand.

The vacuums in this article do not contain many features that you would expect to get in a high priced item. Moreover, due to positive ratings on Amazon, it is quite clear that these vacuum cleaners perform just as well as top ranging models.

Types of Vacuums

There are generally 3 basic types of vacuum one can choose from:

Stick Vacuum

These are very popular and they are widely used in households. Just as the name suggests, it has a powerhead and a vertical body. The vacuum body stretches up towards the handle for a person to hold. Most often, it is powered by a battery because it aims to give users the power of mobility.

Canister Vacuum

The canister vacuum is flexible compared to stick vacuum. It has a hose that can extend far and it is separate from the machine. The product is the best for uncarpeted floors, reaching corners, and upholstery.

Upright Vacuum

Upright vacuums are also popular in household use. They closely resemble a stick vacuum, where the suction and the motor is contained in a single unit. The good thing about this kind of model is that it comes with a brush, which is best for thick carpets, rugs, and upholstery.

Buyer’s Guide: What to Look for in a Cheap Vacuum?

Just as it is mentioned above, a vacuum cleaner for under $100 is never going to have all the features. Even though there are excellent models available on the market, you should never expect them to match those expensive models in terms of performance. As such, you should consider looking for a model that performs best in the areas that are important to you.

In other words, keep your flooring in mind as you shop and it will most likely depend on what flooring you have such as tiles, hardwoods, carpet, or all of them. If you have a flooring that contains both carpet, tile, and even hardwoods, you will need three different vacuums. However, it is advisable to go for a cleaner that can do a decent job in all of them

If you have a room of pure carpet, then you will need a model with beater brushes. This kind of vacuum can dig into the carpet fiber to remove hair and dirt. If your flooring is of hardwood, then you will need a floor attachment with soft bristles, that will help protect your floor as you clean.

1. The Suction Power

A majority of low-quality vacuums have poor suction. However, due to technology advancements, there are motors available for less than $100 that have very strong suction power. Furthermore, EU regulation on power consumption has forced manufacturers to come up with creative ways to improve their technology and performances.

2. Dust Capacity

Dust capacity is important when it comes to looking for cheap vacuums. If a vacuum has a small dust container, it simply means that it needs to be emptied regularly, more often if the model has a strong suction. As such, to minimize how often you have to empty your dust bid, consider going for models with larger capacity.

3. The Filtration Systems

It is common knowledge that HEPA filters help eliminate 99% of bacteria and dust from the exhaust air, which is paramount if you have allergies. However, buying a model with a HEPA filter or buying one separately will only add your total cost. As such, if your vacuum model does not come with a washable filter, then you will need to purchase a replacement.

4. Bagged or Bagless

Bagless vacuum models have become popular these days. However, this does not mean they are always the best option; especially if you have allergies. At the same time, buying bags can truly increase the lifespan of your vacuum.

5. Corded or Cordless

Research has proven that corded vacuums are stronger and work for long compared to cordless. However, even though this is a fact, they are limited by the length of their power cords. On the other hand, the cordless is flexible and it is all thanks to its onboard battery. They will still function no matter if there is power or not. However, they are limited when it comes to prolonged use. This is because as time passes, the stored energy depletes.

NOTE: Cordless vacuums are mainly designed to clean small homes or apartments on a single battery charge.

6. The Warranty Conditions

Warranty is important especially when it comes to electrical and mechanical products. As such, it is wise to consider going for a vacuum that comes with an at least 1-year limited warranty. It is important to note that a warrant only covers breakdowns and not accidents. Therefore, you should not expect the warrant to cover accidents like drooped from the first floor.

The Importance of Combating Allergies with a Pet Hair Vacuum

Vacuum cleaners make cleaning easy and effortless. However, the process of vacuuming may end up releasing fine dust into the air. If you have a pet, looking for an excellent pet hair vacuum is important. Pet vacuums come with a filtration unit that helps limit allergies. The system is directly responsible for cutting down on pollutants that are released back into the air.

Dander from pets are known to cause allergic reactions and many people depend on vacuum cleaners to get rid of this matter. If your cleaner does not have a proper filtration system, then dander from the pet will end up back into the air.
