Thanks to the Dyson cordless stick vacuum cleaners, cord-free vacuums have become the latest rage. Quite a few companies coming up with their versions too. The cord-free nature means you can clean up dust, food particles, dried leaves, and even pet hair effortlessly. However, all these features go for a toss if the vacuum cleaner in question releases a part of the dust particle and other small particulates back into the air through the exhaust. And that’s where vacuum cleaners with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters come into the picture. These cleaners seal the dust bag completely and the HEPA filters in them make sure that dust and other common allergens do not escape.
Moreover, some HEPA filters are washable. So you need not replace the filters often and effectively reducing maintenance costs.
If you are looking for some effective cordless stick vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters, we have curated a list of the best ones out there. Let’s have a look. But first, check these out,

1. LG CordZero A9 Kompressor
LG is no stranger when it comes to home appliances and the CordZero A9 Kompressor is a good example of that. As suggestive of its name, this one is designed to compress the dust and dirt it sucks in. For the record, this one has a capacity of 33.8 ounces. This is in contrast to the 25.6-ounce capacity of the popular Dyson V11 Torque Drive. As you may have already guessed, this vacuum cleaner is a premium device and is priced upwards of $500.
A primary feature of this cleaner is its two-battery system. Yes, you read that right. The CordZero A9 Kompressor comes with two battery units, and each unit can hold up for around 60 minutes on a single charge in normal mode.
The combination of the two battery system and the dustbag size makes it an ideal pick for larger than average houses.
As mentioned earlier, vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters lean towards minimum maintenance fees, and this one is no different. The filters as well as the cyclone (the part where the motor is) are washable and this reduces the upkeep costs drastically. If we go by the company’s claims, the CordZero A9 Kompressor has a five-step HEPA filtration system and is can filter up to 99.99% of dust and allergens.
You will find AI-quirks like notifications to tell you when the filter needs cleaning or if the cyclone is choked, etc.
However, it’s not a perfect device. While it can suck dust, dirt, and lint effortlessly, it struggles to pick up cereals and other similar-sized particles, thanks to the small opening in the nozzle. Last but not least, it doesn’t come with a wall mount. Rather, it packs a docking station that doubles as a stand, and you can move that around when you clean. Cool, right?
2. Dyson V11 Torque Drive
If you have been researching for vacuum cleaners, you must have obviously heard about Dyson’s V11 Torque Drive. This is the cordless vacuum cleaner that is touted to do everything — clean up pet hair, suck dust from carpets and clean tiled floors and hardwood floors alike. That’s quite a list. It has powerful suction and picks up everything effortlessly.
It is so light that you can easily maneuver to clean nooks and crannies. The cleaning tools are cleverly designed. For instance, the cleaner’s head comes with automatic suction that adjusts the degree of the pull as per the type of dirt it detects.
Again, the dust holder is equipped with a HEPA filter to prevent allergens and dust from escaping. This filter is washable, and you need to take it out and wash it in cold water. Once it’s completely dry, which may take upwards of 20 hours, you can use it again. Do note that the HEPA filtration might not work that effectively in the Boost mode.
So far, the Dyson V11 Torque Drive has already received impressive consumer reviews, thanks to its performance, easy storage, and parts. For instance, there’s a separate cleaning head for carpets and upholsteries to ensure that the surfaces do not get spoiled.
It has a runtime of around 60 minutes. However, it dips when you switch the Boost mode on.
3. Shark Rocket Pet Pro Cordless
One of the first things you will notice about the Shark Rocket Pet Pro Cordless is its pricing. It’s a pretty affordable vacuum cleaner and isn’t as steeply-priced as the ones above. It packs a slew of features such as the HEPA filter and a self-cleaning brushroll. The former helps to keep the exhausted air clean and free from allergens. Secondly, It packs a clever Dirt Engage feature in its brushroll. And it’s this tool that plays a crucial role in sucking up pet hairs and long strands.
For starters, this Dirt Engage brushroll auto-cleans as you roll it around carpets. This brushroll sports blades instead of bristles which helps you clean surfaces like carpets and upholstery effectively.
More importantly, the Rocket Pet Pro is lightweight and quite easy to maneuver, especially for medium-height people. Like the Dyson V11 Animal, you can remove the telescopic wand and switch to the hand-held mode. It also comes with its fair share of tools.
You get a fully wireless experience, and this cleaner has above-average suction power to ease the cleaning process. It cleans everything effectively, from debris and dust to pet hairs, although it does seem to struggle with extremely small debris.
The battery life is decent and lasts about 30-40 minutes, thereby giving you enough time to clean an average-sized house. However, the dust bag proves to be a bit smaller for high-traffic homes. As for the HEPA filters, as long as you take care of them (wash them and air-dry them well before using them), they should last long. Naturally, this one lowers the maintenance costs, which is a plus.
4. Moosoo Cordless Vacuum
Another affordable cordless stick vacuum cleaner is the Moosoo Cordless Vacuum. This one bears a close resemblance to the Dyson cleaners in terms of looks, and similar to it, it’s lightweight and is easily maneuverable. The suction power is decent, and it licks up hair, pet hair, small debris, and food particles easily. Like some of the devices in this list, you can easily transform it into a handheld cleaner and use it to clean the insides of your car, upholstery, and curtains.
Like most of the cleaners in this list, it has a handful of attachments for various jobs, and it’s easy to switch between them with ease. Like the Rocket Pet pro, the HEPA filter is washable. And as per the company’s claims, the HEPA filter is built to remove up to 99.99% of microscopic dust particles.
Battery wise, it does a decent punch. On a single charge, it can last up to 30 minutes. And depending on the surface and the dirt and dust, you can switch between the two modes. Needless to say, switching to the max mode will help suck the battery soon.
The Moosoo handheld vacuum cleaner packs a punch for its price. It costs just a little more than $100, and during seasonal sales, you can find a good deal on the same. If you do find one, the best thing to do would be grab it right away. And hey, it comes with a wall-mount, making it easy to store when not in use.
Shoo Away All Those Allergens
With these vacuum cleaners, you can rest assured that all the dust, allergens, and particulates will be locked up no matter what. At the same time, all these cleaners are lightweight and easy to use. Just keep in mind is keeping up with the upkeep and handling things a bit delicately, and they will last you a long time. And yes, there will be no fear of tripping on cords and power cables. Win-win, right?
