Hand held Vacuum cleaner
Over the last few years the vacuum cleaner manufaturers have spent a great deal of time and money in the
development of the hand held vacuum cleaner.
These smaller vacuum cleaners have really formed a niche in the cleaning industry. In the early years of vacuum
cleaner dsesign, the machines were large, bulky and heavy, which meant that they were only suitable for some of the
cleaning tasks that faced the average householder.
To increase the usability of the vacuum cleaner various types and lengths
of hose were added to the basic machine.
This greatly helped in the cleaning of stairways, the skirting board areas of rooms and cleaning around and behind
But it was the invention and manufacture of the hand held vacuum cleaner that has transformed the cleaning industry
and really helped to solve a number of the most tricky cleaning problems. I have listed a number of these cleaning
problems below :-
- (1) Cleaning Car Interiors
One of the greatest problems with vacuuming car interior's is leaving trailing electric cables across
pavements. In today's litigous society we know the danger of leaving trip hazards :-
- firstly to others health
- secondly to our bank balance from compensation claims
The debris left behind in vehicles tends to be fairly small and so a small hand held vacuum cleaner is more
than sufficient.Their size and weight enable them to be used in places that other vacuum cleaners can not
- (2) Cleaning up crumbs
There are many times in family life when there are small spillages, such as crumbs from toast or
breakfast cereal over flowing the bowl. These small spillages don't need a larger vacuum cleaner, the small
hand held vacuum cleaner comes into it's own for these kind of situations.
- (3) Cleaning clothes
Sometimes when you retrieve your clothes from the wardrobe, there can be fine dust that needs removing,
or even some slight creasing that a quick hoover down can solve. The problem with larger vacuum cleaners is
that the vacuum can be too strong for this kind of purpose and even damage the delicate fabric's used in some
clothing.Once again this is where the hand held vacuum cleaner is the answer, it is small enough to be kept in
the bedroom, and so can be used on a regular basis.
- (4) Cleaning pets
When cleaning pets the larger vacuum cleaners, once more can be too strong and also too loud, and could
disturb the pet. The hand held vacuum cleaner can be just the right size to be able to remove dry dust and
grass from pet fur and also help to comb the fur.
- (5) Cleaning stairs
Around the home, this is probably one of the best uses for the hand held vacuum cleaner.
Normally, when cleaning stairs you either need a long extension hose or you have to carry the vacuum
cleaner up the stairs with you.
This is obviously not as safe as using a small light-weight hand held cleaner.
Extra requirements :-
- We can see from the benefits that I have listed, the importance of these hand held vacuum cleaners being
powered by batteries.
- So one of the other requirements is for the batteries to last for sufficient time for the cleaner to be
- Another requirement is that the battery re-charging station is small enough not to be in the way.
- Lastly, the dirt storage compartment needs to be secure, but easy to open when it needs emptying.
