I'm sure that we are not the only family over the past two years who has become 'oh so familiar' with ever single square inch of our home. While that first lockdown in March 2020, was a scary and uncertain time (it was in some respects) a blessing for those families who remained free from Covid-19. We rediscovered the simple things in life and were forced to slow down our lives, to 'be' in the moment. Keeping the house spotless in case of visitors was no longer an urgency, and that was fine for then because it was sunny and warm and we virtually lived in the garden.
Fast-forward to March 2022, and we really need to update our own ethos to housework and tidiness! I'm astounded by how easy it is for piles of stuff to build up around the house, making it harder to clean and tidy, and with the prospect of 'Spring Cleaning' just around the corner? Well, I'm beginning to face up to the reality that this house needs a visit from Stacey Solomon or Kim and Aggie!
If you want to keep your house tidy (and are yet to welcome a visit from the flame-haired Essex wonderwoman herself), invest in a high-quality vacuum cleaner which will be able to rapidly suck up all the dust, debris and, quite frankly, filth that's accumulated about the house. Additionally, the easiest vacuum cleaners should be portable, meaning they can be easily carried up and down flights of stairs without needing to go to the gym to build up your biceps first.
Cordless is best
It's difficult to choose the right vacuum cleaner these days since there are so many on the Dyson vacuum sale market. You can forget about the annoyance of having to deal with tangled or too short cables when using cordless vacuum cleaners. Rechargeable batteries mean you won't have to keep plugging and unplugging as you walk about the home, making it easier to get things done, and significantly reduce your cleaning time.
Models differ in terms of features, with some offering much greater power, better attachments, and—most importantly—longer battery life. Consider the size of your house, the number of people that live there (including pets! Oh the detritus when the guinea pigs kick the contents of their pen out on to the carpet!), and any other equipment that could be needed. On the Dyson market, you'll find anything from uprights to robots to stick vacuums. A cordless stick's thin "stick" form and a smaller canister that must be periodically emptied provide the greatest ease of use and manoeuvrability.
Cleaning supplies and equipment
We all know how much easier it is to use the provided attachments on a good vacuum, rather than having to chop and change cleaning devices; stair attachments, long poles to get the spiders' webs on the coving or even at the top of the 18ft wall that surrounds our stairway, cleaning the crisp crumbs from under the cushions on the sofas, the list goes on and on.
Dyson's V11 vacuum cleaner
While this Dyson's turbo and auto modes are equally impressive, it has a display that shows how much battery life is left. Carpets and hard floors benefit greatly from the turbo mode; however, the battery life is limited to 12 minutes before it has to be recharged. Auto mode effectively modifies the suction level as you go between hard floor and carpet, extending the battery life significantly.
For me that would put a stopwatch on my cleaning time, which suits me just fine!
