When choosing the best upright vacuum, consider what accessories you’ll need to clean different areas around the house that a regular vacuum head can’t get to. If you want a more targeted and comprehensive clean, look for an upright vacuum that comes with an assortment of cleaning accessories and tools. Most uprights will come with a crevice tool, a pet or upholstery tool, a dusting brush, and an extension wand.
If you love the Bissell tangle-free turbine head, but are looking for a smaller option, the Dyson Small Ball is your best bet. The Small Ball includes a tangle-free turbine tool and a stair tool that are ideal for cleaning carpeted stairs, which usually collect loads of pet and human hair.

It comes with an LED light, crevice tool, snap-on dusting brush, Pet TurboEraser® tool, and even a Febreze PreMotor Filter to leave behind nothing but a clean scent.
