Is a Cordless Stick Vacuum Right For You?

Cordless Stick Vacuum

With so many makes, models, designs and features, it can be incredibly challenging to figure out which vacuum cleaner is the best choice for your home. Cordless vacuum cleaners are set to completely eradicate their corded counterparts as modern battery technology improves their convenience and practicality substantially. Cordless vacuums are usually light and maneuverable, making them flexible enough to complete almost any cleaning job around your home with ease. When cordless vacuums were first introduced to the market, they were only considered as an additional tool to compliment your primary appliance. 

Typically, they are great at quick tidy-ups, vacuuming the car as well as stairs. Now there is no need to compromise for second best. Quality cordless vacuums pack enough power to replace the traditional corded vacuum completely. There are three main types of cordless vacuum cleaners: stick, cylinder and upright. Stick vacuums are the most popular form, made up of a small, yet powerful, handheld vacuum with a tube and cleaning brush attached, to clean your floors. So what makes stick vacuums so great and what should you look out for when buying one?


Reasons to buy a cordless stick vacuum

Cordless stick vacuums are lightweight and operate quietly, making them an efficient, convenient and versatile appliance for light to medium household cleaning for most sized households. There are a wide range of models, sizes and attachments designed to complete every type of cleaning task imaginable. They’re not restricted by the length of their cord or their distance to the nearest powerpoint. Many cordless stick vacuums weigh less than a few kilograms, making them incredibly easy to lift overhead and move around your home. This means that your cordless stick vacuum can be used no matter where you are. For example, they are often used to clean car interiors, elevated furniture as well as a range of other hard-to-reach places.

Cordless stick vacuums pack a punch with a powerful motor that delivers significant suction to remove dirt, dust and debris from your floors. Good vacuums use a HEPA filter to trap allergens and pollutants, ensuring your air is clean and safe for you and your family to breathe. Yet, their main benefit comes from their ability to transform into different forms. Cordless stick vacuums can be converted to a handheld version by removing the stick component. Swap out the brush and cleaner head to pick up pet hair from deep within your carpet or quickly tidy up your hard floorboards. Use the crevice tool to pick up debris from hard to reach corners or use an upholstery brush to keep your furniture spotless.

Features every cordless stick vacuum should have

To get the most out of your cordless stick vacuum and to ensure it fulfils all your household’s cleaning needs, you should make sure it has the following set of features:

  • Sufficient run-time and quick charging. Cordless vacuums are only as good as their batteries. One of the most important factors to consider when making a cordless vacuum purchase is the efficiency of the battery. Lithium-ion batteries are generally the best option for quick charging and extended running times. Some only last ten minutes on a full charge, whereas others can last up to an hour. If you have a large home, make sure it’s quick to recharge so you can get back to business. 

  • A wide range of available attachments. A significant advantage of a cordless stick vacuum is the ability to swap out the accessories to meet different cleaning needs. A stick vacuum should have multiple brush heads and tools to choose from, such as a soft brush for hard floors and a crevice tool for hard to reach places.

  • Multiple modes and variable power. A good vacuum will have different modes to choose from. When cleaning crumbs from a hard floor or fabrics like a curtain, you won’t need much power. This conserves battery power for when you need it, such as maxing out the motor to freshen up a soiled carpet.

  • Easy to use controls and an LCD screen. Vacuums with switch lock, make continuous operation a lot easier. Others come with a trigger that requires you to hold it down while you clean. Depending on the size of your home, this may be quite bothersome. Some models come with an LCD screen, showing you useful details such as your remaining battery charge, the status of the filter and dust bag.

  • Light and easy to carry. They should be light and easy to carry around. If the vacuum weighs more than three kilograms, it will be difficult for most people to use for a full clean - especially if you plan to often clean overhead areas of your home.

  • Generous dust capacity. Most cordless vacuums are bagless and lack storage space. This means you will need to empty them more often. Make sure your cordless vacuum has sufficient dust canister capacity for your home!
