Dyson has long been the king of the cordless vacuum cleaner, ever since the release of the DC16 way back in 2006.

Best Garden Vacuum 2019 – UK Leaf Blower Reviews

Raking the dried leaves out of your front lawn and garden is no easy task. If you have larger trees in your garden, there’s a chance you may have to blow the leaves away every few days or at least once every fortnight.

Now, hiring a professional gardener is not something everyone can afford. But if you can get your hands on a convenient garden vacuum and leaf blower, that you can easily use by yourself, that’s half the battle won.

The following are three options I came across while researching garden vacuums.

Cylinder vacuum cleaners are relatively easier to manoeuvre around your home and also do not give trouble in storage when they aren’t being used.

best vacuum cleaner for carpet

Best Vacuum Cleaner For Carpets 2019: UK Reviews

Cleaning wasn’t my strongest suit and cleaning carpets was probably my biggest weakness. My neglect has resulted in at least two carpets getting damaged and spoiled. This was because even though I was using a good vacuum cleaner, it wasn’t the right one for the type of carpet I had. Then there were issues with stains on the carpet, which is a matter for separate discussion.

The variety of carpets available can become a bit confusing at the time of buying one. You need to keep in mind where the carpet will be placed to decide which type is ideal for it. And depending on the type of carpet, the process of cleaning it will vary.

Best Vacuum Cleaner For Pet Hair 2019: Cat & Dog Owners Guide

Equally, hard surfaces such as wood and tile are also challenging when it comes to pet hair. The hair sticks out like a sore thumb on hard flooring, and sweeping several times a day quickly becomes tiresome.

What you need is a vacuum cleaner that is specifically designed for dealing with pet hair. The ideal vacuum for pet hair will make it easier for the hair to be removed, and will also allow you to vacuum less than usual. Designated pet tools are also a must for dealing with carpet, hard floors, and upholstery.

miele compact c2 cat dog powerline review

Miele Compact C2 Cat & Dog Powerline Vacuum Cleaner – UK Review

The Miele Compact C2 Cat & Dog PowerLine vacuum cleaner is a cylinder vacuum that is designed specifically for dealing with pet hair. I know exactly how pesky dog and cat hair can be. They embed themselves in sofa covers, carpets, upholstery and clothes. They get into nooks and crannies in the house, making it difficult to clean.

This vacuum cleaner is equipped with a TurboTeQ floorhead, which deals with these pesky pet hairs better than anything else. In addition, it also absorbs bad odours, which is a major help if you have a four-legged friend staying over at your place.

The slightly higher price you will be paying for the Miele Compact C2 Cat & Dog PowerLine vacuum cleaner is worth every penny because it essentially is a multi-purpose appliance. It cleans the house, plays a part in improving the household health, takes care of hair shed by your pet(s) and it’s durable as well.

dyson light ball multi floor upright

Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner – UK Review

Last year the European Commission banned vacuum cleaners that had a maximum power consumption exceeding 900W. Previously, this limit stood at 1600W.

The new rules also require vacuums to emanate noise under 80 decibels. The reason this step was taken was to reduce overall household energy consumption and to reduce pollution levels.

The Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor vacuum is part of this new generation of vacuum cleaners. The features that made Dyson’s Ball vacuums popular are all available in this new model, except the power which has been trimmed. But that doesn’t affect the performance of the vacuum.
