Now you might wonder why in the world you would ever need a handheld vacuum. The kids and the dog make a big mess and a littler vacuum couldn’t every handle all of the hair and dirt, or could it? The answer might surprise you. Or the location of the mess might be a surprise. The best handheld vacuums can work in the car, along the stairs, in the camper or even in small spaces where you do not want to lug out the other larger vacuum you have. A handheld vacuum is portable and easy to take to many types of places when you want to win against the battle of dirt and pet hair!
The first of the best handheld vacuums includes the Eureka Hand-Held Vacuum model. This sleek little yellow machine will win you over in just a matter of minutes. Because even though it is small and meant to be held in your hand, it has a twenty foot long cord that will stretch across an entire room. Since it can go far and be carried, it can clean up all kinds of messes without having to stop and switch to another outlet. And stopping and switching becomes a pain and makes your chore take even longer than what you want to spend vacuuming!
There are three different attachments to place on the device depending on what you are cleaning. The spin brush can lift hair off of the upholstery easily. The crevice tool will allow you to get down in the couch cushions and clean out cereal and cracker pieces as well as money dumped out from the pockets of your guests! Woo hoo! When you are loaded up with dirt or crumbs, simply remove the dust cup and empty it out so you can start all over again. No worrying about messy bags or the expense of buying a new package. You simply buy the vacuum and you are done paying for it and the accessories forever. If you use your handheld version frequently, then check the filter and the hose to make sure they aren’t getting clogged up with dust particles. An open airway will work a lot more efficiently and keep all of your floors and surfaces dust and hair free.
The Black & Decker Pivot Vac 18V Cordless Pivoting Hand Vac is also a handheld model that can get your house all spic and span. This vacuum is not only hand held, but it is cordless, meaning you don’t have any limits on where to take this for cleaning. Does the trunk of your car have leaves in it from the fall campout? Do you need to clean a shelf in the garage so you can place more storage items in to it? The vacuum can get in and easily clean it all out without having to worry about where you will plug in and how you can maneuver around with a cord. There are no restrictions with this vacuum meaning any dirt or hair is in the path to being sucked up and thrown out!
Another clever feature of this model is that it can fold up and take very little room for storage. When you have tight spaces for storage, then this will be the handheld vacuum to choose. Fold it up and store under a bed, in the side of a closet or even on a shelf somewhere. It isn’t noticeable and it doesn’t take up excessive room like a regular vacuum would. The attachment is completely attached, so you don’t have to worry about pieces falling off or getting lost as you do transport it around or stash it away in storage.
Finally, in my opinion, the best handheld vacuum is the Black & Decker CHV1510 Dustbuster 15.6-Volt Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vacuum. When you want to have the power to suck it up, then this is where you turn to. The nozzle is thin in its design, making it able to get in to tight places easily and grab the crumbs and hair that might be out of sight to everyone else. When you need to attach the brush tool it is hooked to the device so it cannot be lost in another place in the house when you need it. Simply snap on and use the brush for upholstery or floors that needs special attention.
The canister easily detaches so that you empty it and get back to cleaning without much wasted time. The canister is large enough that you can clean up a large area without having to stop multiple times and empty, no matter if you are working to clean up pet hair, crumbs from the kids at lunchtime or even the mess your spouse left behind after packing their own lunch. I whip mine out every morning and tidy up before heading off to work so I don’t come home to an overwhelming mess to tidy up.
The Black & Decker CHV1510 Dustbuster 15.6-Volt Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vacuum weighs less than five pounds, making it great to carry and clean out the entire back of the van after a summer vacation at the beach. It also works well to clean the stairs when you don’t feel like lifting the regular vacuum out of the closet and holding it in place to get all of the stairs swept up.
No matter what type of the best handheld vacuums sound the best, give them all a test drive to make sure they do work in your own home. One house might have less pet hair than what I have in my home, so a smaller one will work just fine. When you have children who are both under ten like mine, daily small messes are a part of life and a handheld with a bit of power and versatility is almost a requirement like a TV and a microwave in the house. Happy cleaning with whatever handheld vacuum model you choose to purchase.
