Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner

Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner

Understandably the Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner comes in first on our list. Not only is it easy to use and lightweight, at just 6.9kg, it is also one of the most affordable of the Dyson range coming in at around £199. We love the sleek design and roller ball technology, allowing it to manoeuvre around tight corners like dream.

As the name suggests it is effective on all types of flooring, from hardwood tiles to soft shaggy carpets. It also has three different suction strengths with the max being perfect for trodden in food and stubborn bits of debris.

The handy wand means you can reach hard to get spaces including stairs without a moment’s hesitation and the one-click release button on the filter allows you to empty and continue with the task at hand super-fast without the hassle of attaching a new bag.

Shark DuoCLean Corded Stick Vacuum Cleaner

The Shark DuoClean Corded Stick Vacuum Cleaner is another popular choice when it comes to both space and ease of handling. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t want a Dyson. Weighing in at just 4.9kg you can move about your home sucking up dust without feeling the burn or panting on the stairs.

Its steam lined stick shape means you can get into tough spaces that are all but impossible with some other chunkier hoover designs. Most vacuums with this long thin shape do tend to be cordless but if you are going to be using it a lot or are simply bad at remembering to charge then this is the machine for you. With 10 meters of cord, you don’t have to worry about being restricted.

Designed for ease of use on all floors it can easily transition from carpet to hardwood without skipping a beat. The body of the vacuum bends to reach almost anywhere in the home and folds for space-saving storage. Another bonus is the LED lights which allow you to pinpoint and get rid of hard to notice dust or piles of pet hairs you might have otherwise missed.

He sports a triple filtration system, is easy to move about the home or office and with his little bowler hat on he makes people smile. His high efficacy motor ensures suction is always strong. Another selling point for this little guy is that he is by far the most affordable vacuum on our list, generally coming in at under £150.

Although the most expensive, the Dyson Cyclone V10 is also one of the most impressive vacuums on this list. It is super lightweight at just 2.67kg and cordless, eliminating the trip dangers usually associated with vacuums. Usage time is approximately 1 hour with a 3.5 hour charging period.

The designers promise that the unique torque drive cleaner head will clean up to 25% more dust from carpets then the previous models and it indeed does have the strongest suction of all the stick vacuums.
