About Me


Nigel RusscoHi,

I'm Nigel Russco, a professional engineer who has been reviewing vacuum cleaners for close to 15 years. I started this website back in 2008 (vacuum-cleaner-advisor.com) but I now also have a popular YouTube channel where I post vacuum video reviews – Vacuum Advisor YouTube Channel.

I review upright vacuums, canister vacuums, stick vacuums and robotic vacuums. I make every effort to write unbiased, intelligent vacuum cleaner reviews by carefully testing the units on low pile carpet, deep pile carpet, pet hair, human hair, hard flooring, and edges. I also test the noise level of each machine.

Where it makes sense, I will compare one vacuum to another to help people make the best buying decisions, and I provide a score out of 100 for each vacuum I investigate. You can get a quick view of all the vacuum scores in the overall Vacuum Cleaner Ratings table or in the Vacuum Cleaner Finder application.

I hope you find the reviews useful and I intend to continue reviewing vacuums and improving the content to make it as helpful as possible.

Thanks for stopping by!
