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.
Best vacuum for pet owners
Pet owners will understand the daily struggle of pet hair everywhere. Keeping a house fur free when you’re turning up on the couch, floors and your clothing is hard, but not impossible. Enter the Electrolux Well Q7 Animal with its patented BrushRollClean technology. The days of pulling out tangled hair and fibres from your vacuum brush are over, simply press the pedal for 5-10 seconds and the internal blade will cut the hairs and allow you to continue cleaning without any manual interruptions.
Consider your home layout
For smaller pokey places, the versatile Electrolux UltimateHome 900 comes with a high performing PowerPro Multi-surface nozzle that thoroughly cleans any type of floor.
