Research methodology vacuum cleaner reviews

We use the same research methodology for all vacuum cleaner reviews. This allows us to compare vacuum cleaners on various factors and find out which scores best.

Research Factors

To assess a vacuum cleaner, we look at a number of important factors. In every vacuum cleaner review we look at the same factors, so that we compare vacuum cleaners in a fair way.

In each review we assess the following aspects:

  • Accessories: we look at which suction brushes you get with it. This gives a good idea of ​​the versatility of a vacuum cleaner.
  • Suction performance: we test each vacuum cleaner on three different floor types with different dirt. We also do a suction power test (Kpa) and research into the air speed (m/s).
  • User-friendliness: we delve into the weight and noise level of the vacuum cleaner. We also look at storage options.
  • Maintenance: how easy is the vacuum cleaner to empty? Can you clean the HEPA filter or do you have to replace it in the long run?

Each factor carries equal weight in our methodology. I use the following formula to arrive at a final figure:

((Accessories score (25%) + Suction performance score (25%) + User-friendliness score (25%) + Maintenance score (25%)) / 4) = Score

Measurements in vacuum cleaner reviews

Apart from the four important research factors, the standard specifications of vacuum cleaners are also measured. Various measuring instruments are used for this, including a custom-made “Vacuum Gauge” to measure the suction power of the vacuum cleaner in (kilo) Pascals.

In the vacuum cleaner reviews we measure the following specifications as standard:

  • Suction power (kPa)
  • Airflow (m/s)
  • Sound level (dB)
  • Range: Cord length (meters) or Battery life (minutes)
  • Weight (kilograms)
