Everything you need for a clean and tidy home.

From vacuums to steam and everything in between, with so many cleaners on the market we put together some information to help make shopping for vacuums and home cleaning appliances a little easier.

What different types of vacuum cleaner are there?

There are five main types of vacuum cleaner on the market today, each with their own strengths and limitations.

 

Upright vacuum cleaners are generally the most powerful vacuums, capable of deeper carpet cleaning. Their design tends to be bulky, making them awkward to carry and tricky to store.

 

Barrel vacuums (also called ‘canister vacuums’) are also amongst the most powerful. Instead of an all-in-one build, barrel vacuums house the motor and dust collector in a wheeled unit that is pulled along behind you. They support multiple attachments and can reach into tight and awkward places.

 

Stick vacuums are light with a rechargeable battery, for complete portability. They are less powerful as a result and they will need frequent recharging. Handheld vacuums are perfect for spot cleaning in difficult places, but not suited to complete floor cleaning. 

 

Robot vacuums are expensive and less powerful than upright and barrel vacuums but can clean the floor autonomously while you do something else.

Which vacuum cleaners are the quietest?

Although there is no such thing as a silent vacuum cleaner, there are some models that are quieter than others. The different types of vacuum cleaners also tend to produce different levels of noise. Generally, a vacuum cleaner with more powerful suction will be louder and upright vacuums tend to be both the most powerful and most noisy. Barrel vacuums are also very powerful but tend to be less noisy, because their design allows for additional layers of sound insulation without significantly increasing the bulk of the unit.

 

Robot vacuums tend to be the quietest and have the added benefit of vacuuming autonomously, which means you can leave it cleaning in one room whilst you move to a quieter room. You can also let your robot vacuum clean when nobody is home. Stick vacuums are light and portable thanks to a small motor. This makes them relatively quiet but does not allow for a lot of insulation, so some models are louder than others.

 

Regular maintenance will help keep your vacuum quiet.

What does a steam cleaner do?

Steam cleaners are designed for deep carpet cleaning without the use of chemicals or carpet shampoos. Other carpet cleaners work by using concentrated detergents and water to scrub the surface of the carpet and suck the dirtied water back into a tank. Steam cleaners use pressurised hot water to penetrate deep into the carpet and agitate the dirt. A powerful vacuum located in the steam cleaner head sucks the dirty water back up into a storage tank.

 

Cleaning with chemicals produces fumes and leaves residues that can cause burns and irritation. Steam cleaners do not use chemicals and can even clean up chemical residues left from previous carpet cleaning. They also kill germs, viruses, bacteria, mould and dust mites.

 

Steam cleaners provide a much deeper and more thorough carpet clean, as steam is better able to penetrate the porous surfaces of the carpet. Steam cleaners can clean a variety of surfaces, although you should always check that your flooring won’t be damaged by steam before use.

What features should I look for in a steam cleaner?

When shopping for a new steam cleaner there are four main features to consider.

 

Steam cleaners perform best when they can produce a good, steady steam pressure. Some models have a steam pressure gauge to help you track the performance. Faster heat-up times will let you get to your cleaning work with less wait time. Faster models can be ready to use in about 5 minutes.

 

Steam cleaners with continuous water refill functionality can be topped up with water mid-clean as you are using it. These models have a separate cold and hot water tank so that hot water is always available after the initial heat-up time. Steam cleaners without this feature will need to heat up again after each refill.

 

Most models have a steam volume control, which will let you make quick and easy adjustments as you clean different surfaces. Models that place these controls on the handle are most convenient to adjust. For added versatility, check what the attachments that come with the steam cleaner will allow you to do.
