Market Insight

We have reported on the best consumer carpet cleaners each year since 2015. Our 2017 report sees a small change from last year.

Once again, it was Bissel and Vax who scored the best – even with other models that didn’t make our Top 5.

This is a very high scoring sector with regards to customer ratings. We saw a lot of carpet cleaners with combined scores of 4.6.

Similarities in product names and styling, means this is not the easiest market for the consumer to navigate. It is often a case of having to dig down in the carpet cleaner specifications. This can reveal subtle differences in cleaner capacity or cord length.

In our 2017 best carpet cleaner report, we see one Bissell cleaner replaced by a different model, the 44L68. The rest of the cleaners are the same as 2016. All are worthy of your consideration if you are shopping for a reliable carpet cleaner.
