Spring Cleaning Tips: Vacuum Buying Guide

12th April 2021

Whether you prefer a robot to do the cleaning or enjoy getting your 'Hinch' on, there's a vacuum cleaner out there everyone. When shopping for a new vacuum cleaner, it's easy to become overwhelmed with all of the new technology on the market. Luckily, we're here to help you choose the right vacuum cleaner to suit your needs!

Robot Vacuum Cleaners

Spend less time cleaning and more time doing things you love, with the help of a robot vacuum cleaner! The thought of adding a robot cleaner into your life may feel a little strange and futuristic, but rest assured you'll be in total control...until the robot overlords take over (kidding). An iRobot Roomba is the perfect sidekick to have in your home, and can be controlled via your smartphone! Simply pick a room (or every room), and the Roomba will learn each area, cleaning up as it goes by lifting dirt, debris and pet hair wherever it lands. We recommend the Roomba i5150 Wi-Fi model which uses Imprint Smart Mapping to give you total control without having to lift a finger and features a premium 3-Stage Cleaning System with Dual Multi-Surface Rubber Brushes and 10x suction.

Best for Hardwood Floors

Tired of wooden floor upkeep? Get two jobs done in one, with a vacuum and steam cleaner combined! Perfect for hardwood floors, this Bissel Vac and Steam Cleaner is the perfect time-saver, letting you switch between the vacuum and steam options or using both simultaneously. This vacuum also sanitises your floors too, removing 99.9% of germs and bacteria! Another great option is the Bissell CrossWave Multi Cleaner, which is safe and effective for use on tile, sealed wood floors, rugs, laminate and more. It's the perfect option for homes that feature different floor types, and for a real deep clean. The Bissell CrossWave actually washes and dries in one go, making it ideal for regular multi-surfaces cleaning.

Best for Home with Pets

We wouldn't change our pets for the world. They bring so much into our lives, from their loving cuddles, loyalty, companionship...and fur. If you're the owner of a particularly hairy hound or moulting moggie, you'll know exactly what we mean. Removing fur from your home is no easy feat, and no place in your home is safe from fur (trust us). When it comes to choosing the best vacuum for pet hair, it's important to look for vacuums with good manoeuvrability and portability. You want to be able to really clean around your couch, table and furniture without hassle, so opting for a cordless option can also be beneficial.

For the ultimate supercharged solution, the Samsung POWERstick Jet 90 Pet Vacuum Cleaner is sure to help remove those pesky hairs. The digital inverter motor provides suction power of up to 200W, and features the same design as an aeroplane engine, spinning faster than a Formula 1 car's engine!

Another great option is the Bosch Athlet Ultimate Pet Vacuum Cleaner, which features a lightweight and cordless design for easy flexibility all over the house. Pet owners can benefit from the ProAnimal nozzle which works great on all types of floors, with an additional brush roll for pet hair.

Upright Vacuum Cleaners

Some people may prefer a vacuum that requires no bending down to reach those difficult areas. An upright cleaner is the best choice here, allowing you to easily manoeuvre across hard floors and around furniture. The 5m power cable plus 1m vacuum reach allows to clean large areas without restriction. A great option is the Bissell Featherweight 2-in-1 Upright Vacuum Cleaner which can also be converted into a multi-purpose hand vacuum!

Stick Vacuum Cleaners

For quickly cleaning bare floors and low pile carpets, we'd recommend a stick vacuum. Stick vacuums are lightweight, small and usually cordless which makes them great for quick clean-ups. Perfect for doing a quick clean at the end of the day, the Beko VRT82821DV Cordless Stick Vacuum features PerformCyclone technology to clean carpets, hard floors and even hard to reach spots. LED headlights offer a practical solution to cleaning in dark areas, and the continuous power trigger prevent any aching hands whilst cleaning! The Samsung POWERStick Jet 90 is another fantastic option, at the higher end of the price scale. This Samsung stick vacuum features powerful suction, a telescopic pipe and generous 60-minute battery life! Charging is a breeze thanks to the self-standing charger.

Best for Homes with Carpets

Carpets are prone to attract pet hairs, dirt and debris, so require something powerful to really get the job done! The Samsung POWERStick Jet 70 is an ideal solution, featuring a turbo action brush to banish even the tiniest of particles, spinning around 3750 times a minute. The powerful features make it great for plush pile carpets and rugs, plus it can also be used on other types of flooring around your home. Another great option is the iconic Numatic Henry Turbo Vacuum Cleaner which glides effortlessly over carpets, picking up stubborn hairs and fibres. This Numatic Henry vacuum cleaner also includes a toolset with extra parts for every job!
