With smart tech like robot vacuums becoming increasingly popular these days, it seems almost intuitive to get one for your home.

Don’t get us wrong, having a robot vacuum to help spruce up your place daily is convenient, but that doesn’t mean regular vacuums should be left out of your cleaning arsenal. After all, think about all the nooks and crannies the robot vacuum can’t reach, as well as how your fluffy carpets have to be deep cleaned.

We know what you’re also thinking — a regular vacuum? That heavy, cylindrical box on wheels with a metre-long hose and a trailing wire? Not exactly. We’re talking about cordless vacuums that have been engineered to be lightweight, space-saving and still incredibly powerful, sans the tripping hazard.

Besides doing its regular vacuum job, some of the selections on this list even have handheld and mop functions so that you won’t have to buy more than one device to rid yourself of an array of messes. Read on for some of the best cordless vacuums around that’ll make sure your home remains sparkling clean.
