Are cordless vacuum cleaners any good?
Short answer, Yes!
But like with most things in life and especially when it comes to making a purchasing decision it’s worth making sure you’re aware of certain things.
If you buy a regular corded vacuum cleaner which is powered by the mains it provides consistent and powerful suction performance. When it comes to cordless vacuum cleaners generally the bigger the battery the more suction performance you will get. In some cases a larger battery also means more cleaning time is available, you don’t want to buy a cordless vacuum cleaner which doesn’t offer enough time to clean your home – of course it depends why you’re buying one in the first place. The amount of time it takes to charge the battery should be a consideration, some models offer lots og cleaning time and a short charge whereas others it’s a smaller cleaning time with a larger charging time this tends to be the cheaper models.
You’ll also want to make sure it is easy to maintain to ensure to performance e.g. washable filter, some newer cordless vacuums even have smart sensor technology and will alert you when filters become clogged etc.
Apart from performance another major thing to consider is how versatile your cordless vacuum cleaner is, many provide upright cleaning which is ideally suited to carpets and hard floors etc and some allow you to detach a handheld unit which are great for spot cleaning and things like upholstery. Of course the more you pay it generally equates to more versatility. Some cordless vacuum cleaners like those in the VAX range allow both upright and handheld cleaning make them ideal for most homes and great for cleaning floors, upholstery, stairs, in car and hard to reach places.
And finally if your home has pets then a motorised brush bar sometimes referred to as a ‘Turbo Brush’ in the VAX cordless vacuum range is really important in my experience. The reason why it’s important is because suction doesn’t always lift away stubborn embedded pet hair.
