There’s no better feeling than coming home to a clean house. But keeping it that way can be another story. Between our hectic jobs, overscheduled social life, trying for ‘me’ time and some resemblance of an exercise routine, housework can often be last on the list of priorities.

Choosing the best vacuum cleaner that suits your needs is one of the first and easiest steps you can take to ensure you get that clean house feeling more often. With the help of Mike Eagle, Floorcare Category Manager we’ve created a guide to help you find the right one for your home.

When to choose a cordless vs robotic vacuum

If you’re after versatility and a deep clean, a cordless vacuum is the way to go. The major benefit of being cord-free is that it won’t just clean your home but can also be used to clean other spaces such as the car and your mattress. However, if you’re after a vacuum that will do all the work for you without you having to be there, a set-and-forget robotic vacuum may be better suited.
