The house always feels clean and tidy after you’ve done the vacuuming. For the most part it’s only barely visible dust particles, but there’s nothing like a newly vacuumed floor for letting you relax knowing a job’s been well done.
With many types of vacuum cleaner available, it can be difficult to know which one is the best for you. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, but a cylinder vacuum cleaner at the right price is hard to beat.
Affordable cylinder vacuum cleaners are easy to manoeuvre and small enough to stow away discreetly. Their long nozzle and various adaptor heads mean they are perfect for cleaning floors as well as the more difficult to reach places – something that’s not quite so easy with an upright.
Cylinder vacuum cleaners start at around the £60 to £80, which represents great value for money. For that price you can get that clean floor feeling for less. With great brands like Henry, Vax and Dyson available in cylinder form, cleaning and vacuuming the house has never been easier.

Cylinder Are lightweight and versatile. They are particularly good for cleaning under furniture, curtains and cobwebs, but can be tiring when used on big expanses of deep-pile carpet.
Upright Upright vacuum cleaners are by far the most popular type of vacuum cleaner in the United States. Uprights are excellent for homes that feature significant wall-to-wall plush carpeting. In recent years, many features have been added to uprights that make them better at cleaning hard floor surfaces as well as above-floor cleaning (i.e. drapes, stairs).
Uprights are available with a variety of tool configurations -from no tools to a complete set of on-board tools. On-board tools will make an upright heavier but they eliminate the need to own a separate vacuum for above floor cleaning.
Some uprights have a feature which turns off the brushroll. This is beneficial when using attachments or tools for above-floor cleaning. This feature also allows the upright to clean hardwood floors. With the brushroll turned off, dirt and debris are not scattered.
An upright is easier to use than a canister vacuum, but is not as light. They are usally also easy to store. Most uprights offer excellent filtration (electrostatic or HEPA type).
This indicates the power of the vacuum cleaner in watts. Generally the more powerful the motor the better the cleaning performance, but for a more reliable indication of a vacuum's ability to clean it is important to consider suction power.
