Air cleaner and vacuum certification are industry-created labels. The certification doesn’t come from a third party. Despite the possibility for bias, I observed that certfied air cleaners were good machines. The certified vacuum cleaners were a mixed lot of good and not as good machines.
The best cordless vacuums for seniors in 2023 are the Tineco S12 Pure One, and the Simplicity S65. They are lightweight, cordless, and effective at cleaning even pet hair embedded in the carpet (I know, my house carpet gathers pet hair at tsunami levels).
Easily my favorite robot vacuum is the Roborock S5 with built-in mop and amazing carpet results. I have been using the S5 for over a year. I am still thrilled with its cleaning ability and navigation sense.
The Mooka True Hepa+ Air Purifier is the best air purifier for medium size rooms up to 540 sf. This is the air purifier that eliminates viruses, bacteria, pollen, pet dander, pet allergens, mold, smoke, and odors.
I can smell dog fur when I vacuum the carpet. This means my vacuum cleaner is sucking in dog fur, and then shooting some of it back into the air! I am a senior citizen. Vacuuming is too much work to put up with this mess. Should I get a certified vacuum cleaner and a certified air cleaner?
For airborne allergens, the best allergy device is a HEPA air purifier. The best air purifier will be the one that not only cleans the air, but also has the sense not to wake us up at night with lights and noise.
