Vacuum Cleaners


£98.99
Hoover FD22G

The Hoover Freedom 22v is so much better than standard handheld vacuum cleaners, and it does a great job in dust emergencies.

£179.99
Shark NV680UKT

I think this vacuum cleaner is great. I don’t think my house has never been so clean!

£241.30
Philips FC9920-69

The Philips FC9920/69 PowerPro Ultimate is a 650W bagless anti-allergen cylinder vacuum cleaner that is able to go head-to-head with some of the leading 2400W vacuums currently on the market.

£249.99
Vax U90-MA-R

The Vax U90-MA-R Air Reach is super lightweight and does a good job at cleaning, but its fiddly attachments and fragile build will not be everyone's cup of tea.

£128.45
Numatic HVR200A Henry

The Henry HVR200A is a quiet vacuum with powerful suction, but lets itself down slightly by being heavy to manoeuvre and awkward to put together. The smiley face is an acquired taste!



The humble vacuum cleaner: where would we be without it? Probably the most widely used household appliance in the UK, virtually every home has one - how else are you going to clear up the crumbs the kids leave, the hair the dog leaves and the everyday mess left by the dust fairy?

Who Invented the Vacuum Cleaner?

The first vacuum cleaner was invented in 1860 in the States, by Daniel Hess. It had a rotating brush and used bellows for suction - a wee bit too labour intensive for today's marketplace. Modern vacuum cleaners come in many different shapes and sizes, with some of the leading brands in the UK being Dyson, Electrolux, Hoover, Vax, Miele, Bissell and Bosch.

Horses for Courses

There are two major types of vacuum cleaner on the market today - upright or cylinder. Cylinder vacuums are more popular in continental Europe, but in the UK the best-sellers are the uprights by some margin. Ultimately, however, it's a personal choice. Cylinder vacuums are pulled along, while uprights are pushed - you may find one way or the other easier. Cylinder vacuums are generally more lightweight and manoeuvrable, while uprights have a larger cleaner area and therefore clean more quickly.

Bags or Bagless?

The other major difference in vacuums is whether or not they use bags to collect the dust and debris. Again, this tends to come down to personal preference. Bag vacuums are quick, clean and easy to empty, but you do have to keep buying bags, and you will probably lose some suction as the bag gets near to being full. Bagless vacuums usually have no loss of suction and are also quick and clean to empty in theory, unless and until something goes wrong and you end up with dust all over your floor - but you never have to buy bags, so there is a cost saving there.
