Handheld vacuum cleaners are a quick and practical way to get rid of dirt and dust in fiddly, hard to reach areas. They’re ideal for countertops, cars and baby seats for quick clean-ups. The small size means it won’t take up room in the house or car, and the power it holds gives you stress-free cleaning.
Suitable for most surfaces, handheld vacuum cleaners are great for cleaning up unexpected messes and dusty shelves. Incorporate one into your home cleaning routine to maximise cleanliness.
What should I look for in a handheld vacuum cleaner?
Like most cordless vacuum cleaners, you should look for one with battery life to suit your needs. Some last as little as 8 minutes without charging, and some can last as long as 16 minutes.
Most handheld vacuum cleaners are lightweight, but it’s worth testing a few to see which one is the most comfortable for you without straining your wrist. It’s also helpful to look for a handheld vacuum that comes with several different heads to expand your cleaning. Heads such as rotating brushes, dusting brushes or short hoses are great for various cleaning.
You should also note the size of the waste container. Some are smaller in capacity, meaning you’ll have to clean them out more frequently.
Are handheld vacuum cleaners easy to use?
Handheld vacuum cleaners are super easy to use, thanks to their lightweight and small size. If it comes with detachable heads, these are generally easy to use by removing the original head and popping on another, giving you more cleaning abilities.
You can also store handheld vacuum cleaners almost anywhere as they’re smaller and less bulky than a full-sized vacuum. Most require just a flick of a button, and you’re ready to stand cleaning.
