13 Best Vacuum Cleaners In Malaysia 2020 (How To Choose, Types & Features)

The best vacuum cleaner in Malaysia 2020 could well be Dyson’s V11. But it also has one of the steepest vacuum cleaner prices in Malaysia!

Which goes to show how far cordless vacuum cleaners have come! Gradually closing in on the solid suction power that traditional canister vacuums provide!

And then, there are the best robot vacuum cleaners in Malaysia to consider in the mix! Take a look and see which vacuum cleaner best suits your lifestyle (and budget)!

How To Choose The Best Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuum cleaners are a lot more sophisticated than they used to be!

Some even have HEPA filters (the kind that you find in the best air purifiers in Malaysia) at the exhaust of the vacuum to prevent allergy-triggering particles from escaping!

Others are cordless. While others don’t even need you in the picture! Aka robot vacuum cleaners!

How do you know which one is best for your household?

1. Comfort

Look for an ergonomic handle that is comfortable to hold! Especially if you have a lot of ground to cover!

2. Area To Cover

A small house is a no-brainer – a small (and even cordless) vacuum cleaner will do nicely.

For bigger houses, a smaller vacuum will probably run out of power faster!

And if your house is double-storey, you don’t want to be dragging a huge machine up and down the stairs! So weight is something you should definitely not overlook!

Or you can try small vacuum with a very long cord!

3. Noise Factor

Maybe you like cleaning in the morning when everyone is still asleep. Or some of your family works at home!

In that case, look for a vacuum cleaner with a noise rating below 72 decibel instead of 78 (i.e. the standard).

4. Versatility

To get into those nooks and crannies, the vacuum nozzle must be able to rotate! And lie flat enough to reach under sofas and beds.

Most vacuum cleaners come with nozzles specific for crevices. And mattresses!

5. Pet Fur And Carpets

Have a home with pets and carpets?

A vacuum cleaner with a motorized or air-driven turbo nozzle with a brush is noisier but will pick up all that fur and hair effectively!

Types Of Vacuum Cleaner

  1. Cylinder or Canister – Vacuum with a dust container on wheels and a long flexible hose; normally with a cord.
  2. Upright – High efficiency with no need to bend. Excels at cleaning carpets! Bulky to carry up stairs. Usually with a cord.
  3. Stick – Very light and mobile; suction power is not very strong; cordless ones tend to run out of power fast; dust container is small (i.e. frequent change)
  4. Robot – After charging, you can let it wander around your house. Very good at cleaning the areas under beds and couches! Can’t clean stairs.
  5. Handheld – For dedicated spaces. Very portable

Other Features To Consider

  • Filter – An ideal HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter can trap particles that are larger than 0.3µm at an efficiency level of 99.97%.
  • Bag or no bag – check the dust capacity; bagless means ou don’t have to buy the single-use bags but it can be messy
  • Cord length – Plugging in and plugging out gets annoying. Make sure the cord length is sufficient for your house!
  • Wet – some vacuums are made to work on wet floors too so you don’t have to mop!
