How long does the vacuum cleaner last?

When you buy a vacuum, you may wonder - how long will it last? There is no exact answer to this question. Even the best vacuum cleaners in the world have valid periods. How do you know when to change your vacuum? What are the reliable brands of vacuum cleaners? Keep reading!

The average lifespan of a vacuum cleaner is around eight years. Their durability varies from brand to brand. Of course it also depends on how much you use it and how often you maintain it. In fact, several different factors work together to affect them.


In addition to the 5-year warranty, Dyson promises you that the robot will last 7-10 years.

Shark is a brand known for making vertical vacuum cleaners. It has a lifespan of 5-7 years and you can change it frequently.

Hoover's credibility is high, their high-end models can last for nearly 15 years. Also, it has a 10-year warranty.

Miele is also famous in Germany, although the price is slightly higher, they are great value for money. They are designed with high power motors, so they can last up to 20 years.

The Bissel is relatively cheap, and if you want a machine made of hard parts, you can choose it. Its average usage time is about 10 years.


Different types of use time is also different.

The handheld vacuum is easy to carry, but it runs on batteries. Because there is no motor assistance, it can last for 2-3 years.

Vertical vacuum is the most common machine. It is bulky and usually wired. It can be easily used for more than 8 year

Canister Vacuum lasts almost as long as the upright, and they're both wired.

Hoover Commercial Canister

Robot vacuums are the most convenient device. Because they don't need you to watch the cleaning at all. You can make it clean when you go out or at work, making it very easy for yourself. But they don't last long, and they only last about 3-5 years.

Regular cleaning and maintenance

Previous articles have also mentioned how other brands of vacuum cleaners are cleaned and maintained. Mainly clean their brushes, filters, etc. Also pick up large scraps of paper in the room and avoid the vacuum cleaner to clean it up. Every vacuum cleaner has a waste bag that collects all the dust. To ensure that the vacuum can run for a long time, you need to empty it after cleaning.

How to use

Before using the vacuum cleaner, remove solid particles (sand, stones) from the ground. There will be power cords in more or less places, so be careful not to be dragged away by the vacuum cleaner. Not only is it unsafe for you, it will also damage the power cord itself.

When is the best time to replace it?

If your vacuum is just a minor problem that can be fixed with proper cleaning or replacement parts. Then it can continue to last. But if it still doesn't work after replacing parts, it's probably time to say goodbye.

When looking for a new vacuum, consider its features and durability. Another thing to consider is price, if you choose to invest in a long-lasting vacuum. For example, Hoover, then the price will naturally be high.
