Frequently Asked Questions

Is a robotic vacuum better than a cordless vacuum?

>

Having a robot to do the cleaning is a futuristic innovation we have dreamt about.

We are a step closer with the robotic vacuum, which offers a hassle-free way to do quick surface cleans on a daily basis. Whilst it doesn’t offer the deep clean of a cordless vacuum, the daily cleans may reduce the time between deeper cleans.These vacuums are best in rooms with bare floors, minimal clutter and low-pile rugs. They are also perfect for cleaning dust bunnies under furniture that’s hard to access with the more upright vacuum cleaners.

Cordless vacuums on the other hand, are no longer the small handheld machine which offered very little suction and running time. Nowadays they offer a powerful clean and come with innovations such as HEPA filters and specialised cleaning for pet owners. With a max charge of around 60 minutes, the cordless vacuum cleaner is light and easy to use.

Are bagless vacuum cleaners more efficient than bagged ones?

>

Although they can be heavy and bulky to use, bagged vacuum cleaners have been around for a long time and nowadays offer many features and innovations.

People who suffer from allergies, often prefer a bagged vacuum cleaner as most offer a high-efficiency particulate air filter, or a HEPA filter, and once the bag is full, it’s removed and put in the trash without the person having to touch its dusty contents. However if the house is large and there are a few pets and dogs, frequent bag replacement may become a costly exercise.

Bagless vacuum cleaners tend to be lighter and easier to use which makes the chore easier. Although the upfront cost (in the case of cordless models) is often more than a bagged model, and emptying the machine may cause some dust to escape, the performance is similar if not superior in some models when compared with their bagged counterparts. And you won’t need to buy replacement bags.

Can I use floor steamers on wooden floors?

>

No, is the response from most experts as water is the enemy of wooden floors and steam mops in particular can force water between boards and could cause swelling, stains and warping.

Although some models claim to be safe on hardwood floors, it is not recommended and such claims should be treated with caution according to flooring specialists.

Floor steamers do a great job of cleaning and sanitising ceramic tile and vinyl floors, but not wood, even wooden floors sealed with polyurethane. The dirtiest parts tend to be high traffic areas where there is the greatest likelihood of scratches from wear and tear. These will allow the water in.
