Market Insight

2017

In our 2017 report on the best window vacs, we once again see the Top 5 filled by Kärcher.

There are only three models listed on the Kärcher website, yet we still see their previous versions selling very well; and still with excellent reviews.

The Kärcher WV50 gets a very high scoring 4.7, even after 4000 customer reviews. Impressive.

We saw other manufacturers while creating this report; however Vileda were let down by quality control and poor performance, and Leifheit scored reasonably well, but as yet there are not enough ratings to see how reliable they are.

 

2016

This is a niche, but very popular market, with just a few manufacturers making window vacs. As you can see, Kärcher are the current leaders in this sector. We saw window vacuums made by Russell Hobbs and Leifheit, but they didn’t score as highly as the Kärcher models.

As well as cleaning inner and outer windows, window vacs are great for clearing condensation – both after showering, or off the inside of windows during the winter. They are also great to use on mirrored wardrobe doors/internal glass doors and car windows.
