I had a very exciting delivery last month! A fancy new cordless vacuum.
I have been very impressed with this vacuum cleaner, it’s our first cordless one and I have really enjoyed the freedom of being able to move without the constraint of the power cord! It’s been such a delight; my enthusiasm must be catching as even the boys have decided to assist with the housework (I think I almost keeled over in shock!).
The Bissell PowerGlide Cordless Vacuum Cleaner (£249.99) is much lighter than our previous vacuum so they have no trouble handling it and manoeuvring from room to room. It’s certainly been very welcome having some extra help. I am not sure if the novelty will wear off for them but for now I am making the most of it.
The battery is very easy to remove and place on charge. You get about 45 minutes hovering time between charges, which is meeting our needs quite adequately. It’s very useful as an option when you just want to do a quick hover round before visitors as there is nothing quick about having to find your nearest socket each time! I have found we are hovering much more effectively now. The only thing is remembering to make sure I recharge the battery!
From the contents of the vacuum canister you can tell it’s doing a very good job keeping the house clean and tidy! We have a dog that seems to moult everywhere so our trusty Bissell is coping well with that. We have mainly laminate flooring and it’s helpful that you can switch off the brushes when hovering any hard surfaces so you do not need to worry about scratching your floors.
If you are very thorough when you go about your cleaning you will enjoy having the extending tool to reach all those tricky crevices in the sofa or dust off your curtains. I am more of a quick and speedy cleaner (okay LAZY cleaner!) so I have stuck to just whizzing round with the hover and not relying on the tools so much! But however you like to clean this vacuum will be a great asset.
