A handheld vacuum is a great addition to your cleaning arsenal because it removes debris and dust quickly and easily and get into extremely hard-to-reach places. You can use it to clean high shelves and under furniture, in the car and under the seats, or in the office, garage, workshop or caravan to pick up all sorts of debris. A portable vacuum cleaner is also ideal for spot cleaning when you don’t want to go to the trouble of using your regular vacuum cleaner.
Let’s start with a few tips on how to choose a handheld vacuum cleaner, then we’ll determine what the best handheld vacuum is at Godfreys.
How to choose a handheld vacuum cleaner
These trusty little gadgets are ideal for quick clean ups, but one of the features worth investigating is runtime. The longer the runtime, the more you can use the handheld vacuum before it needs to be recharged. Another important feature is its weight and whether it’s going to feel comfortable in your hand. Because you’ll be using it one handed, you don’t want it to be too heavy. Think about the capacity of the waste receptacle as well, because the bigger the capacity the more debris you can collect.
Attachments are another great feature, as they allow you to reach under furniture or into crevices to vacuum up hidden dirt. A deep pile brush for vacuuming carpets will also be useful. Another thing to look into is how easy it is to use, turn on and off, empty and store.
That’s a lot to think about, so to summarise these key features:
