How we test vacuum cleaners

Vacuum cleaner brands might claim to suck up all the dirt from your carpet, but it's usually impossible to tell how good each vacuum cleaner is until you’ve handed over your money and taken it home. That's where our rigorous lab tests can help. 

We use custom built test rigs to run the vacuum cleaners over long distances - they cover 288m in one test alone. We test them on carpets, examining how well each vacuum deals with picking up fine Arizonian sand, ground into the carpet, as well as running them over both creviced and smooth wooden floors.

We also assess how good each vacuum cleaner is at picking up pet hair and use specialist machinery to see how well they keep fine dust inside the machine once collected. Each vacuum cleaner gets a total test score and only the very best models can become Which? Best Buys.
