A Guide to Handheld Vacuum Cleaners

There is nothing worse than lugging your large vacuum around whilst you blitz your house only to find a small mess or spill there five minutes later. Perhaps the dog ran in from the garden or your little ones dropped crumbs on the lounge rug.  Having a handheld vacuum at arms reach can be a godsend!

Hand vacuums can easily be stored in a small cupboard or mounted on a wall, meaning it will be in a convenient location just when you need it.

They aren’t just easy to store and use, they are also extremely easy to clean. Being bagless, they come with a built in section that collects dirt. While cleaning a full-size vacuum can be an arduous task, the benefit of handheld vacuums is that you simply throw away the dirt and debris that has collected inside the unit. Some hand vacuums are cordless, using batteries, so you can take them anywhere, making it even easier to clean up spills.

Handheld vacuums really are versatile. Thanks to their size and convenient storage facilities, you can clean up spills much faster than full-size vacuums. They are also easier to manoeuvre in small spaces, including corners, stairs and other crevices that a full-size vacuum would normally prove more difficult.

Take a look at the different features you should also consider when choosing a model that’s right for you.

Corded versus Cordless

Corded handheld vacuums are more powerful and don’t lose power as the cordless do as/when the batteries run out. However, corded models are not as versatile as cordless cleaners which you can take anywhere. Depending on which area you plan on using your vacuum the most will determine whether corded or cordless is best for you. For example, if this is going to be used primarily as part of your weekly car cleaning routine then cordless is most likely the way to go.

The Power of Suction

The Air Watts rating will give the best measure of suction. Again, your requirements are determined by where and when you perceive using the cleaner.


Do you have pets? Or maybe you have children with long hair. If so, you will most likely require an attachment which will ease the task of lifting the unwanted hairs from your carpets. Do you or anyone in your family suffer from asthma? If the answer is yes, then the filter in your cleaner is an important consideration for you. A good filter will prevent dust being recirculated back into the air.


This may not be an issue for many users, but if you are elderly or may be weakened by illness, you may find some models quite heavy/cumbersome for prolonged use so need to consider a lightweight model instead.


No matter what other features you would like or needs you have to address,you’ll need to consider your budget. Thankfully, there is such a comprehensive range of hand held vacuum cleaners available with a wide range of price tags that there is a price to suit every budget.
