Stick vacuums that make cleaning your floors quick and easy

You might even look forward to cleaning the house.

Whether we like it or not, spring cleaning is upon us. And while sponges, mops, and feather dusters are all fine and dandy, there is one cleaning tool that tops them all: the stick vacuum. This handy tool allows you to reach even the trickiest of corners in the house, to extend far beneath couches, and suck up even the most stubborn of dust bunnies. In short, it makes cleaning your home quick and hassle-free.

From the creme de la creme of vacuums, like the Dyson V11 Torque Drive, to some humbler options that still get the job done, here are a few of the stick vacuums that will have you looking forward to your weekly cleaning session.

Additionally, the V11 Torque Drive boasts twice the amount of suction power than standard cordless vacs. Between the LCD smart screen, the three power modes (Auto, Eco, and Boost), and a straight 60-minute run time capability, this vacuum is sure to zap all the dust and dirt—and then some (in fact, this machine sucks up 99.97 percent of microscopic dust particles).
