Best vacuum under $100

Following the recent post of best vacuum under $200, I wrote this post with the hope of bringing you with best vacuum under $100. Some of you may wonder why I come up with the idea of writing about best cheap vacuum, don’t you? The simple reason is that I want to help you choose the most appropriate vacuum cleaner even when you have a very limited budget. I am sure that after reading my post, you can get the vacuum you feel most satisfied with no matter how much money you have.

What features can you find in best vacuum under $100?

In most cases, you will find that despite being considered as best cheap vacuum, all vacuums in this group still maintain good suction power. Also, they have enough ability to vacuum on different types of floors such as carpets or wood floors.

Although having a low price, the vacuums provide a number of accessories or extra attachments, for example, suction head and spinning beater brushes. Those additional tools are designed to meet various demands of users.

Time of warranty of most sub-$100 vacuums is 1 year or 2 years. Whereas for some vacuums, the warranty period is much longer (5 years). I suggest that you should look at warranty claims of the product carefully before making a decision of buying it or not.

After considering the list of best vacuum under $100 carefully, I find some good points of this vacuum making it worth purchasing. First, its technologies and attachments offered by Bissell make it different from others. Actually, those advantages create the cleaning performance, for instance, the built-in easy scrubber makes it work two times as effectively as other steam mops. Another illustration of its strength is SmartSet Steam Control which is very useful for cleaning heavy messes. On the other hand, there are some points I’m not really satisfied with. I don’t really like the perfume called Spring Breeze because I have an allergy to fragrance and just want to clean my floor thoroughly. This may be my personal feeling, not really a drawback of the vacuum. If you want to see further, read Bissell 1940 PowerFresh Steam Mop Hard Floor Steam Cleaner review.

Among best vacuum under $100, I am very impressed by Shark Steam and Spray Professional (SK460) due to the outstanding performance on wood and hard floor. As combined with Steam Energized Cleanser, the vacuum offers a high level of cleaning performance. The cleanser will definitely help you eliminate the toughest messes in your house. Also, you can use three distinct steam settings of Intelligent Steam Control including Dust, Mop, Scrub for a variety of surfaces. Furthermore, the instructions are very easy to understand, even for newbies. However, there is a small problem with the pad. The producer only provides one reusable mop pad in the box. Therefore, to avoid washing the mop by hand when you don’t run a short load for only one mop pad, you had better purchase some more pads.
