With the different types of vacuum cleaners, you might get confused on how to choose just one unit for your home.
You can’t go wrong with an upright vacuum cleaner. Most of the contemporary models come in stylish design. In case you are on a budget, you will likely opt for an upright vacuum cleaner because it is the cheapest option. Look for a bagged upright vacuum as it can deep clean tiles. The major drawback is that you will be pulling and pushing an upright vacuum cleaner.
If you are worried that you will get exhausted easily, then look for a canister vacuum. This type of vacuum cleaner has a separate body and its nozzle is connected by a hose.
A stick model vacuum cleaner will also be ideal if you want a device that lets you clean the tile floor quickly. Aside from tiles, this type of vacuum cleaner is great for carpets and bare floors. These are ideal for reaching tight spots that you can’t clean with other vacuum cleaner types. The major downside, though, is it lacks the power of other full-sized vacuums.

The latter should make your cleaning faster because you don’t have to go back and forth to the sink to fill the tank with clean water.
It also has a 11.5 inch nozzle that lets you clean hard-to-reach areas, and a 20 foot cord so you can move around the house better.

How to Choose the Best Vacuum Cleaner for Tile and Wood Floors
So what is the best vacuum cleaner for tile floors and even carpet?
It is hard to pinpoint just one model, because all vacuum cleaners have their good points as well as bad points.
Choosing the right vacuum cleaner depends on your needs. Do you prefer a vacuum cleaner that can make cleaning faster? Look for a model that has a powerful suction. Lack of power is the reason some units leave behind debris, which makes cleaning a longer more tiring process.
Speaking of exhaustion, you may tire yourself quickly if you use a bulky vacuum cleaner. Choose a vacuum cleaner that is lightweight but with enough power to remove debris. This is particularly true if you plan to use a vacuum cleaner in cleaning the second storey of your house or office.
The best vacuum for carpet and tile should not cost you a lot, though. Being the best does not always mean being the most expensive. Set aside a budget and buy a vacuum cleaner that is within that budget range.
The weight of the vacuum cleaner isn’t the only thing you must be conscious of. You also need to put a premium on maneuverability. You must buy a maneuverable vacuum cleaner to make it easier for you to clean tile floors. Look for a unit with strong rubberized wheels, too, as tiles tend to be slippery.
