dyson v11 absolute vacuum cleaner

Dyson V11 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review – The Best Vacuum Ever?

With the release of the Cyclone V10 cordless vacuum, Dyson announced that it would no longer produce corded vacuums. Now that the V11 is here, that seems to be a decision that has paid off.By putting all of their resources behind this latest generation of cordless vacuums, they have produced a fantastic vacuum that will ensure you say goodbye to the cord for good.The Dyson V11 Absolute isn’t cheap, and this will be the main reason that holds customers back from purchasing one. It really is an excellent piece of kit though, with better suction, intelligent sensors, and even an LED screen to alert you of any problems, all of which make the high cost justified.

vax gator handheld vacuum

Vax Gator H85-GA-B10 10.8v Handheld Vacuum – UK Review

Imagine setting up a dinner date at home and realizing you forgot about appetizers. So, you drive to the shop and when you get back you step some dirt onto the carpet. Now you must haul your vacuum from the cleaning cupboard and find a socket before being able to tend to the spot. It wastes another 10 minutes of your time and you still have to get dressed.

Or in the morning, everyone is ready to leave the house for work and school and one of the kids drops their toast on the floor. There are crumbs everywhere and you don’t have time to pull the vacuum out, but you don’t want to leave the crumbs on the carpet all day.

The Vax H85-GA-B10 Gator Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner was designed with exactly these situations in mind.

Read on as I go over the benefits and features of this handheld vacuum.

The George Hoover vacuum cleaner is a clear indication of just how ambitious Numatic has been over the years. Despite their achievement with the Henry Hoover, they have still remained focused and relentless in their efforts to bring us the perfect vacuum cleaner.

Henry Hoover HVB160 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review – Is This The Best Henry Model?

Cleaning can’t get any more friendly than the Henry Cordless Vacuum Cleaner by Numatic. And by “friendly” I mean both user-friendly and, well, jolly. This little fella makes cleaning hard to reach, unconventional, and everyday spaces easier than ever — all with a happy smile on his face.

This cordless vacuum is similar to the original Henry Hoover, with the most obvious change being the lack of a power cord. While this does make him more expensive than his corded counterpart, the convenience more than makes up for it.

Dyson V6 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner – UK Review

It’s safe to say that the Dyson brand is well known to be among the best when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Dyson pioneered the cordless vacuum, and they are so confident in their cordless vacuum cleaners that the company’s founder, James Dyson, recently stated that the UK manufacturer will no longer research or build corded vacuums.

It is a huge improvement over previous cordless models with improved battery life, larger dust canister, and more powerful suction. Since the release of the V6 in 2015, Dyson has released a range of upgraded models such as the V7, V8, and V10 Cyclone.

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.
