It certainly won me over, and now that I have been using it, I can’t imagine going back to a different brand. Even the face on the front of the vacuum has grown on me, and other vacuums just seem kind of dull without it.

The Numatic Henry HVR200A hoover is the vacuum you always see cleaners using when cleaning offices, which must be a good enough recommendation in its self. They are light enough to carry up and down stairs. A good handle to carry them with and an excellent rewind mechanism for the power cord.

The hoover has a very simple and basic vacuum design. If you buy one of these vacuums you get good cleaning at a reasonable price.


Vax U90-MA-R Air Reach Upright Review

The Vax U90-MA-R Air Reach is both lightweight and has an extra reach compared to other vacuum cleaners.

The vacuum is called reach because of its design. It has a power cord of over 10 metres which is very long. It also had a stretch hose 4.2 metre long, which is long enough to clean right to top of the stairs while leaving the vacuum at the base of the stairs. These two features will give you a reach of 15 metres.

As then vacuum is bagless it is easy to empty and clean. In addition it can be use a a blower outside to clear leaves or used to inflate air beds and paddling pools. Include 14 piece accessory kit for all your cleaning tasks.

So, while it’s not a substitute for a regular hoover, the Vh780 is much better than a rechargeable handheld, and well worth the money.

This is a useful handheld which with its powerful motor can tackle all these little jobs like cleaning up small spills. The Vax Gator is great where you cannot be bothered to take out the main vacuum cleaner to do anything all the time. It is cordless and so easy to use.

The Vax Gator is more expensive than some other handhelds but appears to be of better quality, sturdy and more robust. I have brought previous handhelds before and they have not been so good or powerful.

Types of Vacuum Cleaners

There are five types of vacuum cleaners:

  • Upright Vacuum Cleaner
  • Cylinder vacuum Cleaner
  • Stick Vacuum Cleaner
  • Handheld Vacuum Cleaner
  • Robot Vacuum Cleaner


Choosing a Vacuum Cleaner

A vacuum cleaner is an essential tool for cleaning floors, upholstery and other surfaces in the house. I will first discuss how to choose your main vacuum cleaner for the home. I will then discuss how to choose a second vacuum cleaner for the home if required.

When choosing the main vacuum cleaner for your home. It needs to be versatile to perform all the necessary cleaning. The first and most important consideration is the main type of flooring in your home. If you mainly have hard floors – wooden, tiled or vinyl then a cylinder vacuum cleaner is the best. If most of your home is carpeted it is best to have an upright vacuum cleaner.

GTech AirRam Pink Review

The GTech AirRam Pink  claims that it will change the way you vacuum your home forever by making you cleaning faster, easier and more convenient.

The vacuum actually does changes the way you vacuum. Because it is so, light to use and you do not have to set it up. You therefore tend to clean more frequently than before.

The GTech AirRam Pink is cordless but the cleaning performance matches that of mains upright vacuum cleaners.

Running costs are 1/20th of some mains powered vacuum cleaners. You no longer have to worry about trailing cords getting in your way. You do not have to drag a heavy motor around with you. No dust everywhere when you empty the dust bag.


Duronic VC600 Review

The Duronic vc600, because of its size, is ideal as a second vacuum. Alternatively, it is ideal to do all you are cleaning if you are living in a flat or shared accommodation.

The vacuum will also reduce the need to keep taking out your main vacuum for smaller tasks.The Duronic vc600 converts from an upright to a handheld in seconds.

Because of its functionality and low price I recommend the Duronic vc60. To be used as first choice as a second vacuum in larger homes and as the main vacuum in small flats and shared accommodation.

Hoover Smart Pets SM1901 Review

The Hoover Smart Pets SM1901 Hoover Smart Pets SM1901 is for family homes with pets.  The vacuum has turbo brushes, which are able to remove pet’s hair from carpets and upholstery.

This Hoover represents excellent value for money mainly because of its suction power.   Yes, it does have limitations such as a short cord and rather clumsy inflexible hose.

But the main reason for buying a vacuum cleaner is its cleaning power which this vacuum has more so that many vacuums several times its price.


Karcher WV2 Premium Window Vacuum Cleaner Review

The Karcher Wv2 Premium 2nd Generation Window Vac is an update and improved version of the bestselling Karcher WV50.  The new model is 10% shorter and fractionally lighter than the original vac.
