If you are part of a busy family or love pets, you will most likely agree with us that it can be quite difficult to keep tile flooring tidy and clean. Among all types of floor covering, dirt tends to be more conspicuous while on tile floors. And that’s why you need a vacuum specifically designed to handle tile floors.
While tiles can be easy to clean when compared to carpets, linoleum, or hardwood, they can also be very sensitive. They are particularly susceptible to scratching and wear when the vacuum cleaner being used is fitted with rough bristles.
Luckily, we have explored the market and picked three of the best vacuums that perfectly work on tile flooring. Here are the models you need to know about.
Navigator Lift-Away Pro
If your tile floor is always under constant traffic, it doesn’t have to look unsightly and unkempt, thanks to the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional.
Part of its popularity among home owners and business magnates has to do with a HEPA filter that holds allergens, combined with an extra large dirt cup that makes cleaning faster and easier. Users love its Complete Seal Technology that traps 99.9% of dirt, ensuring that dust does not find its way into your lungs.
It also features a detachable canister that can be lifted up at the touch of a button and used to clean floors covered by furniture and other areas that are difficult to reach. Swivel steering significantly improves the vacuum’s maneuverability to help you systematically clean the floor.
With a premium pet hair power brush, the model is a firm favorite among pet lovers. It lifts pet hair leaving behind a little trace. In addition, it’s equipped with a dust-away hard floor attachment that vacuums and dusts bare floors quite effortlessly. Its efficiency is perfected by a wide cleaning path that covers 9.5 inches.
Weighing just 13.7 pounds, the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Pro is one of the most versatile models that are easy to carry around. And although it works best for tile floor cleaning, it also features a brush roll that can be switched on when you wish to clean carpeted areas.
Perhaps its most noticeable downside has to do with its handling design considered less ergonomic than some competitors. That the dust cup door is located at the bottom calls for caution when emptying the cup, lest you make contact with the contents.
PowerEdge Hard Floor Vacuum
Thanks to a V-shaped base, the PowerEdge 81L2T is perhaps the best vacuum for capturing both large debris and fine dirt.
While fine particles are suctioned along the arms of the V-shaped base, larger debris are thrust into the center of the base where suction power is highest. The shape is particularly effective when cleaning around furniture legs where dirt likes to hide.
Perhaps one of its distinguished features comes in the form of hair-attracting rubber material which lines the wipers and compliments the models high suction power when collecting pet hair. This makes the model a great option for pet lovers – be they dogs, cats, or even birds.
The swivel head is designed to smoothly glide around obstacles meaning that you don’t have to move furniture and other utilities every time you wish to clean up. This is a wonderful option if your floor is quite smooth, even though it can also work quite well on low-pile carpet.
An easy-to-empty dirt cup makes the PowerEdge 81L2T ideal for scheduled large scale vacuuming sessions. And at 20 inches, the power cord may not be the longest you might get, but it still covers considerable distance.
Its slim, ergonomic design minimizes the storage space required when you are done.
On the downside, the power cord is shorter than those of competitors. When cleaning large rooms, you may be forced to tap multiple sources of AC power, or use an extension cord in an attempt to increase the range of a single swipe.
DC33 Multi Floor
That there’s not a single perfect vacuum cleaner might true. But the Dyson DC33 Bagless Upright Vacuum cleaner really is a machine designed with perfection in mind. Online shoppers at Amazon have given the model a 4.9 out of 5-star rating, which goes further to show its surging popularity across the globe.
Part of that has to do with a design that suits most floors, not just tile flooring. It’s lightweight (17 pounds), making it one of just a few vacuum cleaners that can clean an entire mansion from the east wing to the west wing in a matter of minutes.
Another great feature comes in the form of Root Cyclone technology which ensures that the suction remains consistently high, regardless of the amount of dirt in the cup or the number of times you vacuum in a day.
HEPA filters effectively withhold fine dust and allergens, making the model an ideal pick for anyone who hates to see their hands dirty or individuals allergic to microscopic pollen. When the dirt cup is full, all you have to do is push a button and instantly release the dirt.
Dust seems to revel on flat, ultra soft surfaces. The Dyson DC33 is equipped with soft bristles to remove such dust without leaving behind ugly scratches on the surface. And with a 35-inch cord, you can clean as large an area as you wish. In addition, buyers are offered a 5-year parts warranty.
The Dyson DC33 clearly outshines most competitors in terms of versatility and power.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Pro would be ideal for anyone looking for a medium-duty vacuum offering a combination of powerful suction power and effective dust isolation technology. It’s particularly loved by pet enthusiasts due to its ability to lift up 99.9% of pet hair.
The BISSELL PowerEdge Pet Vacuum, 81L2T is a convenient option for users with tightly packed rooms due to its outstanding ability to pull in dirt and dust clinging around furniture legs and baseboards. It might also be an excellent choice for tile floors exposed to pet hair.
If you are looking for a multipurpose vacuum capable of cleaning tile floors, carpets or hardwood floors, the Dyson DC33 fits the bill. It offers unrivaled versatility and suction power, capped by a long cord for all medium to heavy-duty cleaning needs.
