To achieve spotless cleaning around the house you need to invest in a powerful vacuum cleaner that will bust the dust in minutes. With so many makes and models on the market it can be difficult to choose the right one. To help you we have put together a guide that highlights the main features and brands like Hoover & Electrolux, so that you can clean up with confidence.
When choosing a vacuum cleaner decide where you want to clean for instance carpets, hard floor surfaces, or perhaps a car. Do you have a small rooms or a large house. These factors will help you decide whether you want an upright, cylinder or handheld cleaner. If you are a pet-lover choose a model that features a turbobrush or electrobrush accessories, these will give you the powered rotation that you need to clean pet hair. Some models also use carbon odour-elimination
filters to help eliminate pet smells.
The upright has multiple cleaning heads that make it effective for cleaning carpets and larger floor areas. The height selector option allows you to adjust the vacuum to accommodate the length of the carpet pile so that you can get great results every time.
Another great feature are the rotating brushes that will pick up pet hair easily. Upright models can be heavier and harder to manoeuvre especially in those smaller, harder to reach places. However, you can get models that now provide various tools that will help you get to these areas so it's worth looking for models that provide these tools.
Cylinder cleaners are smaller and lighter units are considered to be easier to use. Extra tools are compactly placed inside the actual models so that you can access them and put-away easily, ideal for when you come to cleaning smaller spaces and stairs.
Cylinder cleaners also feature a cord rewind function, a start/stop button that can be operated by foot, plus a suction head that is kept separate from the main unit for a wider cleaning radius.
Handheld cleaners are ideal for light cleaning. Sometimes, a room doesn't require a thorough clean and this is where hand held cleaners can come in handy. They are small, light and portable and are ideal for cleaning the stairs or the car.
These models collect and contain dust in a sealed bag and once full it can be easily disposed. For asthmatics this is the preferred option and has been approved by the British Allergy Foundation.
These models use a more advanced technology and are generally more expensive but you do save on the cost of buying bags. These models also allow you to see how much dirt is being collected so that you know when to empty it.
Is the safer option for asthma and allergy sufferers. The filtration is specially designed to reduce the number of microscopic allergens emitted after vacuuming. The result is a cleaner and safer outflow of air. S-class is the standard that vacuum cleaner manufacturers have to adhere to and HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters are the technology most models of this type feature.
