Upright vacuum cleaners
Upright cleaners are a good choice if you have a large home or lots of carpeted rooms – they use a brush to comb the carpet pile to lift trodden in dirt.
Cylinder vacuum cleaners
Cylinder vacuum cleaners are usually smaller and lighter than uprights and are very manoeuvrable – they are a great choice for smaller homes.
Cordless & handheld
Cordless and handheld cleaners are light and battery powered, so you can use them almost anywhere – they are ideal for quick clean-ups and small cleaning areas.
Carpet washers use a detergent cleaning solution – they deliver a more thorough clean than vacuums.
Steam cleaners are multi-purpose appliances that use steam to remove dirt, stains and bacteria from carpets, tiles, hard surface floors, ovens, windows, clothes and upholstery.
Advice and inspiration
Things to consider
For vacuums, the greatest cleaning power is provided by 'no loss of suction' (NLOS) technology, which uses multi-cyclonic action to prevent the filter from clogging, keeping the suction power at its maximum. Each vacuum also has a rating from A to G to indicate its relative performance.
Some upright, handheld and cylinder cleaners are specially designed to deal with pet hair. They combine strong suction power with special tools and brushes to help you stay on top of the battle against pet hair and odour without damaging surfaces.
Floorcare appliances vary in weight depending on design and intended use. Uprights, steam cleaners and cylinders can weigh over 8 kg but many are designed to be easy to steer and control. Handheld and cordless cleaners are much lighter and can be used anywhere quickly and easily.
The dust capacity of vacuum cleaners is measured in litres (l). Larger capacity cleaners can clean more of your home before needing to be emptied and are ideal for larger homes. But larger capacities can also mean a larger vacuum cleaner and less manoeuvrability.
