Vacuums & Floor Care - Buyers Guide

When it comes to vacuums there are plenty of different options and capabilities to consider. Would you like to use something that is very mobile and easy to manoeuvre? Or would you prefer a larger capacity barrel vacuum powered by a wall plug?

Increasingly people are opting to use multiple vacuums to meet their cleaning needs. Here is a recommended combination of vacuums that will ensure the optimum clean for your home:

  • Robot vacuum – for constant and very regular automated surface cleaning (iRobot provide outstanding options)
  • Stick vacuum – for quick and short bursts of cleaning (Dyson are our leading brand with their outstanding range)
  • Barrel vacuum – for those deeper more intense cleans (Miele, Electrolux and Bosch)
  • Deep Cleaning vacuum – for washing and maintaining carpet and extending the lifespan of your upholstery (Premium brand: Bissell)

Stick vacuums

Stick vacuums

Without doubt Dyson has revolutionised the vacuum cleaning market thanks to their outstanding range of hi-tech Stick vacuums.

Dyson’s range continues to set the market leading standard with their outstanding suite of variations with multiple Stick vacuums available within these power categories.

While our Dyson range is outstanding, there are definitely other top-quality options with Samsung, LG, Miele, and Electrolux offering strong competition in this vacuum niche.

The key advantages to consider with Stick vacuums are that they are very agile and easy to manoeuvre. They offer significant suction power, are rechargeable and cordless, and they’re very easy to stow away in your cupboard. They are also bagless and lighter than barrel vacuums and with their great manoeuvrability comes ease of access to corners and edge cleaning.

Bagless vacuums hold huge appeal for people who don’t wish to purchase vacuum bags on a regular basis, plus you can see how full the dust container is before emptying.

Many of our Stick vacuums are designed so that you can detach the ‘wand’ or tube allowing you to use them as a quasi-handheld vacuum – perfect for cleaning your car or awkward furniture.

Hot tip: Stick vacuums offer you the convenience of point and shoot into your rubbish bin with no need to empty a rubbish bag. Make sure you own a back-up battery and you can have up to 120 minutes of battery.

Barrel vacuums

Barrel Vacuums

Despite the significant rise in the popularity of stick vacuums, Barrel vacuums, such as our highly regarded Miele range, are still extremely popular due to their power, durability and performance.

Our outstanding Miele range is accompanied by other top-quality Barrel suppliers such as Bosch, Electrolux and Westinghouse. Thanks to the impressive suction power offered by these brands, Barrels make a very strong case for being the preferred vacuum of choice for many households.

A Barrel vacuum offers you larger capacity and superior suction over a longer time which is great for larger spaces. They ensure excellent hair pick-up and with both bagless or bagged models available, they are sure to be a solution for almost any home.

Hot tip: Barrel vacuums also provide superior storage space due to their larger size which also aids with superior cleaning duration. Also, their bags are easy to remove and cheap to replace.

Robot vacuums

Robot Vacuums

A robot vacuum is prefect for automated cleaning while you’re at work. Programmed and directed via app and voice command, your robot vacuum will roam your house and clean either a selection, or all of the rooms. Our top of the range models have the capability to return to the docking station to self-charge and self-empty into the built in Automatic Dirt Disposal system.

We currently stock the iRobot range consisting of the Roomba i7+, Roomba 670, the Roomba e5, the Braava Jet M6 Robo Mop and the LG R9 Master. The Roomba i7+ responds to voice commands, creates its own virtual maps of all your rooms, returns to its docking station to automatically re-charge, and it empties its rubbish container when needed.

The Roomba i7+ is programmed to teach itself to use the most efficient cleaning patterns as it moves around rooms and furniture.

The LG R9 Master Robot is a similarly impressive option for automated ‘hands free’ home cleaning. The LG R9 also creates its own maps and charges automatically. It uses a 3D Dual Eye which scans and records in order to create room maps but also doubles as a security camera which provides five captured images you can view via the app.

Hot tip: Purchase a Handheld vacuum cleaner along with your Robot vacuum so that you can still clean stairs, cars and more.

Deep Cleaning Vacuums, Carpet Shampooers & Spot Cleaners

Handheld vacuums

Handheld Vacuums

Handheld vacuums are perfect for those emergency spot clean situations. We have your needs covered with options from Black & Decker, Shark Ion and Dyson.

All our handheld cordless vacuums are light, easy to handle and are powerful to varying degrees. You will need to pay close attention to the battery life and how much storage capacity there is – there are significant differences from model-to-model. All of the handhelds are very light, usually less than 3 kgs, so weight is not an issue.
