While vacuuming might not be everyone’s favorite task, there are plenty of good reasons to do it. Fall is one of the worst seasons for outdoor allergens, which you can track into your home on your clothes, shoes, or hair. And most homes are filled with allergens like pet dander and dust mites, which can get trapped in carpets, rugs, stuffed toys, soft furniture, and bedding. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) 8 in 10 people in the US are exposed to dust mites, while 6 in 10 people come into contact with dog and cat dander.
The AAFA recommends vacuuming once or twice a week to keep household allergens low.
With all this in mind, we checked out vacuums included in this month’s Prime Early Access sale.
This product is loaded with features, like sensors to accurately map rooms that can be controlled using the Samsung SmartThings App and voice recognition that is compatible with Google Assistant, Alexa, and Bixby.

Promising review: “We have a shorthaired dog and it does a great job picking up the dog hair. It also navigates well from hardwood to area rugs. It’s pretty ambitious and even drives up over the fireplace tile area. Good purchase for lazy people like me!” -domanii

Promising review: “I've had this vacuum since prime day so for quite some time. It's my favorite purchase I've ever made. The suction is great, the light works so well and shows dust and dirt you cant see. Works well both on carpet and hard wood. One thing is the battery life on the highest setting runs out very quickly. But its not the biggest problem because the low setting works so well. I love this and love the attachments. I use the attachments on my counters, couch, even in my car! Would highly recommend.”—Jackie
