BISSELL AeroSlim Cordless Handheld Vacuum 29869 Review: Main Features

BISSELL AeroSlim Cordless Handheld Vacuum 29869 Review - BISSELL AeroSlim 29869 Review - BISSELL AeroSlim Review

Well, this is not a full-size vacuum, so you may want to manage your expectations. However, as far as handheld vacuums go, it is up there with the best in terms of design and performance. Below, we look at the unique features that make it a must-have appliance.

Cordless convenience

As its name suggests, BISSELL AeroSlim 29869 is a cordless hand vacuum. So, it offers you the convenience of avoiding power cords, looking for a suitable power outlet, and the ability to vacuum even when there is a power outage.

Design

As mentioned above, this is one of the most attractive hand vacs on the market. Not only is it sleek but it is also compact. So, storage and carrying it from one spot to the other is a walk in the park.

Further, it is very very light, weighing just 1.37 pounds! Is there a lighter handheld vacuum? I doubt it.

Power & runtime

BISSELL AeroSlim Cordless Handheld Vacuum 29869 Review - BISSELL AeroSlim 29869 Review - BISSELL AeroSlim Review - Charging

This little champ is powered by a 7.2-volt lithium-ion battery. Because it is designed to tackle small messes on the go, however, the runtime is quite short. With a fully charged battery, you can only vacuum for a maximum of 12 minutes.

While that may seem inadequate, we feel that it is sufficient for the intended purpose. Furthermore, for someone who vacuums and cleans regularly, 10 to 12 minutes is usually more than enough.

For extra convenience, the vacuum is charged via USB. So, you can charge it at home, in the office, or even as you drive to and from work. Charging takes between two and a half to three hours.

Filtration

While it lacks a HEPA filter, the filtration system is pretty decent. The vacuum uses a two-level system to ensure that no allergens are blown onto your face or into the air as you vacuum. Besides, based on its size and the intended tasks, HEPA filtration would be overkill.

However, it has a washable filter that should last for quite some time before needing a replacement.

Attachment

Small as it is, this hand vacuum has your upholstery, furniture, and other above-floor surfaces in mind. You get a useful tool to help you pick up small messes from practically any surface – well, apart from the ceiling and such high areas.

With the BISSELL AeroSlim 29869, you get a 2-in-1 crevice tool and dusting brush attachment.

BISSELL AeroSlim Review: Features & Specs Summary

Below, we have listed everything you need to know about this tiny yet powerful vacuum:

Miele TriFlex HX1 Stick Vacuum Review

Miele TriFlex HX1 Stick Vacuum Review

Miele TriFlex HX1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

This is Miele’s first cordless stick vacuum and as usual, Miele keeps proving a worthy brand. The TriFlex HX1 offers superior performance almost similar to an upright vacuum. In our detailed Miele TriFlex HX1 Stick Vacuum review, you are going to learn exactly what sets it apart from the rest.

Miele offers premium designs, epic usability, and powerful results and we think this vacuum boasts all those qualities. The 3-in-1 design of this stick vacuum is especially genius and its configuration seamless. Also, it is very easy to use unlike some of its peers.

Miele TriFlex HX1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review: Main Features

Today, we present an extensive Miele TriFlex HX1 review focusing on its features, pros, and cons. This is a brief description of the vacuum’s main features:

3-in-1 design (TriFlex)

Miele TriFlex HX1 Stick Vacuum Review

Miele TriFlex HX1 offers three cleaning modes. First, you can vacuum on stick mode which is ideal for vacuuming large areas on the go. To transform to stick mode, dislodge the handle from the main unit using the button on the inner side of the handle, attach the wand first then re-fix the handle.

This moves most of the weight to the bottom of the vacuum and makes it effortless to maneuver. The second mode is the maximum reach mode which helps with above-floor vacuuming. You can attach various accessories to clean shelves, curtains, and the ceiling.

The third mode is the compact/handheld mode. To use it, detach the wand and attach accessories instead. This mode helps in cleaning furniture, upholstery, mattresses, or your car’s interior.

Handheld mode

Power supply

Miele TriFlex HX1 uses a rechargeable VARTA lithium-ion battery. Since the battery is removable, you can charge it separately or as part of the unit. Also, it takes up to four hours to charge fully – pretty standard for cordless vacuums.

The charging dock (PowerUnit) is mountable and can also be used in two different ways. You can either charge the vacuum at the lower position or the upper position depending on the current mode.

Further, you get one battery with this unit but you can buy an extra one separately. A fully charged battery gives you up to an hour of cleaning time. To know if it’s fully charged, check whether all the indicator lights are on. Please note, however, that the indicator goes off after a while.

Filtration System

While this system doesn’t have a HEPA filter, it efficiently captures and traps over 99% of particles. So, allergy and asthma sufferers are protected from the effects of allergens such as dust and pollen.

These are lifetime filters and should not need maintenance or replacement for the whole of the product’s life cycle. To maintain premium suction, dislodge them after every use and brush off the dust or tap mildly for the dust and dirt to fall off.

3-speed setting

This vacuum can be set to clean on low, medium, or high speed depending on the surface type or how dirty the area you are cleaning is. The low setting is ideal for bare floors while medium and high setting suit carpets. In our view, Miele TriFlex HX1 is one of the best stick vacuums for carpets and rugs.

One of the characteristics we love about this vacuum is that its low setting is remarkably powerful – you can do most of your cleaning in this mode. Besides, most users will not need the high setting unless when vacuuming high pile carpets and rugs.

Maneuverability

This is a low-profile vacuum thus it lies flat to clean under furniture. Also, the cleaner head is swift and moves effortlessly around objects. However, we find it relatively wide so you may need to use attachments to access tight spots.

We would recommend Miele TriFlex HX1 to petite people or those who have health conditions such as arthritis. It’s user-friendly and all the pieces snap easily into each other and it is ultra-light.

Multi-floor cleaner

Miele TriFlex HX1 Stick Vacuum Review - Floor head

This is an all-floor vacuum cleaner designed for quick picks. The extra-large electro brush automatically senses when you are transitioning from one surface to another and adjusts suction to match the surface you’re vacuuming.

The vacuum’s ability to pick debris (large or small), collect pet hair, and embedded dirt is impressive. The accessories also make it possible to clean multiple surfaces effortlessly. We discuss this next.

Attachments

In addition to a wand, Miele TriFlex HX1 comes with an upholstery nozzle, an adjustable dusting brush, a mini-electro brush, and a crevice tool. As expected of stick vacuums, there is no hose and the wand is not extendable. However, the accessories clip easily to the wand to offer extended reach.

Similar to modern Miele vacuums, this vacuum’s electro brush is impressively effective. It removes pet hair and debris on all surfaces including carpet, area rugs, furniture, stairs, and other above-floor areas. Overall, it’s an efficient cleaner for pet hair and pet dander.

Disposal system

Miele TriFlex HX1 Stick Vacuum Review - Dustcup

Miele TriFlex HX1 is fitted with a transparent 0.5-liter dirt can. While it’s easy to empty and clean, we find it pretty small in size. So, you may have to stop midway to empty if you’re dealing with a large room or plenty of dirt.

Our verdict

We love the Miele TriFlex HX1 stick vacuum for its epic functionality. The 3-in-1 design ranks it among the best cordless stick vacuums in terms of versatility, maneuverability, and ease of use.

One advantage of cordless stick vacuums is the friendly weight; you can clean for longer without experiencing fatigue. Miele also enhanced this vacuum’s comfort by designing it with an ergonomic handle.

On stick mode, the weight is mainly at the bottom making it possible to stand unsupported. It also has superb swivel ability despite the wide floor head. So, you can easily get past obstacles as you vacuum the floor.

Also, Miele applies one of the best filtration systems in this vacuum. Using a hygienic lifetime filter enables it to capture and trap over 99% of all allergens. Therefore, it is great for anyone struggling with allergies.

Another attribute that consumers love is that it’s an all-floor cleaner with superb ability to deep clean. It’s efficient enough to serve as the only vacuum cleaner and offers up to 60 minutes run-time.

Additionally, you will enjoy this vacuum’s flexibility, multiple accessories, and its ability to stand upright without support. We are also impressed by its high performance especially when we compared it to peer stick vacuums.

Although it’s a little expensive, it’s a worthy investment. Without a doubt, it can give Dyson V11 Animal and Torque Drive stick vacuums a run for their money.

How to Take Care of Your Linoleum Flooring

As mentioned earlier, linoleum is one of the more delicate flooring types. So, you need to take good care of it to maintain the polished look and to prolong its lifespan. To ensure that you achieve both of these outcomes, there are a few things to keep in mind.

To clean the floor effectively, follow these simple steps and precautions:

  • Before you start cleaning, get rid of any objects that are like on the floor. This could be toys, pens, etc.
  • Use a vacuum to pick up dust, pet hair, and debris from the floor. Take care not to use a vacuum that has tough bristles to prevent scathing.
  • Mop the floor using water and dish soap. Preferably, mop the floor in sections of about 30 to 40 square feet at a time.
  • Rinse the floor (still section by section) using hot water.
  • Once done, promptly dry the linoleum flooring to prevent damage by any stagnant water.

To ensure that the floor lasts long without the need for repairs and replacement, you can endeavor to clean it twice a week while putting more emphasis on high-traffic areas. Also, ensure that you wax and buff the linoleum regularly.

This way, you can have long-lasting flooring free of the stress associated with repairs, replacement, and their associated costs.

Conclusion

Linoleum floors as earlier mentioned require extra care to prevent scathing. They are also pretty smooth thus collecting debris can be tricky. However, we have in this list some of the best vacuum cleaners for linoleum flooring. Any of these vacuums will leave your floor spotlessly clean and nicely polished.

As usual, we have to pick out the best. And for the expert level vacuuming that linoleum floors require, Shark APEX AZ1002 steals the show. It may be slightly heavy but it moves as swiftly as a stick vacuum. It also has a long power cord so you can clean wall-to-wall on a single plugging.

Also, there’s minimal hair tangling courtesy of Zero-M technology and you can switch between upright, lift-away, and handheld modes for comfort and convenience. Basically, it has everything you need.

As mentioned above, this unit will definitely wow you because of how much it can get accomplished. But what makes it an ardent performer? Let’s find out…

Suction

Uprights usually have powerful suction and Shark Rotator NV501 is no exception. It sustains tremendous suction across carpets, rugs, bare floors, and above-floor areas such as the windows and ceiling. The suction also remains consistent while using attachments.

Multi-surface cleaner

Shark Rotator NV501 is fitted with a dynamic brush roll for all-surface cleaning. So, it effectively cleans carpets, tiles, wood floors, and above-ground areas. The vacuum certainly ranks among the best vacuums for its detailed cleaning and ability to handle various floor types.

Brushroll shutoff capability means that you can stop worrying about scratching your precious vinyl polished hardwood flooring as you vacuum.

Also, you don’t need to struggle to remove embedded dirt on carpets. This vacuum will do that for you. It also does a great job cleaning after pets, picking pet hair, and getting rid of odors and allergens such as dust and pollen.

Versatility

The vacuum transforms easily into Lift-away mode. You only need to “lift away” the pod at the press of a button to increase the vacuum’s mobility. This way you can easily vacuum under furniture and up the stairs with ease. You also get accessories that enable you to clean the tight corners, crevices, walls, drapes, upholstery, and other above-floor surfaces.

Lift-away feature

Also, you enjoy great maneuverability boosted by Shark’s swivel steering technology. Besides, the brush roll has a power switch that allows you to control suction while transitioning between various surfaces. It’s also ultra-light thus easy to carry up and down the stairs or from one room to the other.

Filtration system

Shark NV501 uses a pre-motor felt and a foam filter plus a post-motor HEPA filter. This filter combination captures up to 99.97% of allergens. Moreover, Anti-Allergen Complete Seal technology prevents allergens from escaping back into the air.

The filters are washable and need regular cleaning to maintain powerful suction. The pre-motor filters (foam and felt) should be cleaned every 3 months while the HEPA filter can be cleaned annually. Detach and rinse with clean water then leave them to air-dry completely before re-installing. In between rinsing, be sure to remove excess dirt by tapping the filter mildly as you empty the dirt can.

Overall, it is one of the best vacuums that help to fight allergies and asthma by preventing pollutants from being blown back into the indoor air.

Disposal system

Shark Rotator NV501 is bagless and uses an easy-to-empty dirt can with a capacity of 0.88 quarts. For routine cleaning, this should last you for a whole cleaning session unless the house is too dirty. It opens both ways – top and bottom thus no chances of leaving stuck-on dirt.

To ensure optimum suction, empty the can after every vacuuming session. You can do this by holding the dirt cup over the dirt bin and pressing the dirt cup button. Suction may be affected if you surpass the MAX fill mark but, since the can is transparent, you will see as it fills.

So, ensure that you empty the dust cup and clean it as often as you can. Besides the negative impact on suction, odors may start emanating from the vacuum if it’s not emptied on time.

Attachments

Apart from a flexible main unit, Shark compliments its units with several accessories. These go a long way in making vacuuming enjoyable and stress-free.

This one comes with a wide pet upholstery tool, a 12-inch crevice tool, a dusting brush, and a premium pet power brush. They can be attached to the wand or hose depending on how far you desire to reach. So, cleaning of above-floor areas such as drapes and upholstery is sorted out.

The only challenge, however, is that there are only two slots for onboard accessories storage. That means you need to keep going back for them while cleaning and you also need to get a storage bag to avoid misplacing them.

LED lights

Shark Rotator Professional Upright Vacuum NV501 Review - Shark Rotator NV501 Review - Shark Rotator Professional NV501 Review - Shark NV501 Review - LED Lights

The Shark Rotator NV501 is fitted with two bright LED headlights on the floor nozzle. These lights help you to spot dirt and dust while cleaning at night or in dark areas. Therefore, you will not leave any part of the floor with unwanted specs of dirt.

WORX Trivac 2.0 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher Review

WORX Trivac 2.0 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher Review

WORX Trivac 2.0 3-in-1 Vacuum Blower Mulcher Vac Review - WORX Trivac WG512

Cleaning the yard is one of the most hated chores especially by youngsters. There are several reasons why. It’s tiring, murky, and sometimes too repetitive. Traditionally, we would rake and collect leaves across the yard and that would take hours of hard work. But, that’s no longer the case.

Nowadays, we have blowers and leaf vacuum mulchers to ease the task of cleaning and disposing of the waste. These tools are extremely essential especially in fall when dead leaves cover our yards. The WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 is a 3-in-1 leaf blower, vacuum, and mulcher made especially for this purpose.

In this review, we look at this powerful combo and explore its parts and how they work. We list for you its main features, pros, and cons. We’ll also give you tips on how to maintain it in a mini buyer’s guide. After that, we share our verdict. Let’s dive in!

WORX Trivac 2.0 3-in-1 Blower/Mulcher/Vacuum Review: Main Features

WORX Trivac 2.0 3-in-1 Vacuum Blower Mulcher Vac Review - WORX Trivac WG512

Many things set this robust tool apart from the rest. In this section, we look at the main features that will help you tackle the mess in your back and front yards like a boss.

3-in-1 leaf blower, vacuum, & mulcher

WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 Vacuum may be all you need for cleaning your lawns. It’s designed with a wide blower tube which makes it possible to blow large areas within a short time.

WORX Trivac WG512 3-in-1 Vacuum Blower Mulcher Vac Review - WORX Trivac Review

Besides, at only the turn of a dial, it switches from a blower to a leaf vacuum mulcher. A strong metal impeller enables the machine to mulch leaves at an impressive 16:1 ratio. However, it is effective when leaves are dry or slightly moist but does not do well with wet ones. Also, avoid using it to suck up muddy leaves.

2-speed setting

Depending on how heavy and how much leaves and debris you’re dealing with, the two-speed setting enables you to choose the air volume. You can opt between regular or maximum performance. If you are cleaning tight corners, for example, regular speed will be ideal.

The maximum air flow generated is 600 CFM, which is higher than that of most leaf blowers out there.

Versatility

This is an ultra-light unit weighing 8.6 pounds only. The ergonomic handle also makes it easy to use and operate with one hand. Moreover, parts attach and detach with ease. The mulcher swiftly chops leaves and twigs into small pieces for your compost heap.

Being a powerful 3-in-1 machine is more than you can ask for. Whether you want to mulch a heap of leaves or simply blow them in one direction, you’re sorted.

Disposal system

WORX Trivac 3-in-1 Vacuum Blower Mulcher Vac Review - WORX Trivac WG512 2.0

WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 Vacuum comes with a lightweight easy-to-detach disposal bag. The bag is re-usable and holds up to 1.2 bushels of mulched leaves (approximately 8 gallons). It’s also fitted with a zipper on the side which you unzip to dispose of the content into the garbage once done.

Also, you get a strap that can be adjusted to favor tall people. Carrying the bag on the shoulder is definitely much simpler than having it in your hand the whole time. However, the feed tube is a bit short and cannot be adjusted, which may pose a challenge for tall fellows.

Power and suction

First, we love the power cord retainer as it holds the cord firmly and minimizes chances of it snapping out of the extension cord as you move around. The electric power cord measures around 12 inches.

Besides, the machine is easy to turn off and on and has 75 MPH of airspeed. Supported by a 12-Amp motor and air siphoning design, WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 Vacuum generates up to 600 CFM of air flow. Also, its no-load speed is 16500 per minute.

WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 Review: Features & Specs Summary

Some technical specifications for your information:

WORX Trivac Review: Pros & Cons

What are some of the things you might have to contend with when you buy this unit? Let’s find out below…

Pros

  • Time-saving – blowing the leaves into a pile and then vacuuming them takes much less time than raking and collecting the garbage

  • It’s relatively light
  • The power cord retainer ensures the cord doesn’t pop as you work

The pleasant thing about using WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 is that it is a low-maintenance unit. The disposal bag is re-usable and the parts are sturdy. So, you’ll hardly have to deal with repairs. Here is a guide on how to maintain it.

Dealing with clogging

Leaves and twigs are cut in two stages by the metal impeller and its shredder blade. The mulcher is not designed for twigs though, it is meant for picking leaves. That makes it likely to jam if it sucks in a branch or a large twig or debris. Getting out stuck pieces is easy: open the plastic cover right under the handle, remove the stuck-on branch then replace the cover.

There is another reason why your WORX Trivac may clog. It is designed for dry debris and thus easily clogs if you try to vacuum wet leaves. If that happens, the vacuum stalls and operates as a blower throughout.

To solve this, disconnect the power, remove the stuck leaves from the vent, and ensure it is clean before continuing. You may also opt to vacuum at a warmer time when the leaves are not very wet.

Our verdict

WORX Trivac 2.0 (WG512 ) impressively accommodates all users. Although it is a one-handed unit, it’s lightweight and comes with a shoulder strap for the waste bag. What’s most impressive is its ease of use, for instance, how it easily converts from a blower to a vacuum and mulcher.

It also has a mind-blowing mulching ratio of 16:1 supported by a powerful airflow. The 2-speed option is also a crucial addition, especially when transitioning from working on the pavement to the lawn/yard.

Nonetheless, there are only two features that would make it better – an extra-ability to pick up wet leaves, and a longer tube to minimize fatigue especially for tall people. Apart from that, WORX WG512 Trivac 2.0 is sufficient for perfecting your yard.

Eureka Flash NES510 Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review: Main Features

In this section, we explore the features that make the Eureka Flash stick vacuum a worthy investment.

Eureka Flash NES510 Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review

Power and suction

Eureka Flash NES510 has more power than most stick vacuums. It’s a 120-Volt unit with a power rating of 500 Watts. The strong, fade-free suction allows you to pick up all kinds of dirt from all floor types – dust, dirt, debris, pet hair, and dander.

Using a long 30-foot power cord, it offers wall-to-wall reach in small to large rooms. While some consumers prefer cordless vacuums for the convenience it offers, this vacuum’s long cord partially solves that.

Besides, corded vacuums are generally more powerful. Also, you will not be worried about the battery dying midway through your vacuuming session.

Versatility and ease-of-use

The Eureka Flash has a basic, simple-to-use (regular) handle but the maneuverability is awesome. The vacuum has advanced swivel steering and the motorized floor nozzle self-propels. So, you can move around the house effortlessly – no need to use a lot of energy.

Also, you can switch between stick and handheld mode in the snap of a finger. Assembling and disassembling the unit is also a walk in the park.

Conveniently placed fingertip controls make it easy for you to select your preferred cleaning mode. Choose the first position to switch to hard floor cleaning mode and the second position to activate the brush roll in case you need to vacuum carpets.

Multi-surface cleaner

Owing to its superb suction and self-propelled floor nozzle, the vacuum deep cleans low to medium pile carpets efficiently. It’s equally thorough on hard floors and picks debris effortlessly.

Besides, you can turn the brushroll on or off for a smooth transition between surfaces. Also, automatic height adjustment comes in handy as you move from bare floors to carpets and vice versa.

LED headlights

Eureka Flash Stick Vacuum Cleaner NES510 Review - LED Headlights

Eureka Flash NES510 is fitted with four LED lights placed in the middle of the floor head. They make cleaning corners, under the furniture, and the dark rooms in your house more effective as you can see all the dirty spots.

Disposal system

This is a bagless vacuum cleaner with a detachable dirt cup that holds up to 1 liter of dirt. Besides, the emptying process is straightforward as you only need to take off the lid and pour contents into the trash. Alternatively, you can detach the bin at a button press, empty, clean, and replace.

Extended reach

Eureka Flash NES510 Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review - Above-Floor Cleaning

Apart from the 30-foot power cord, Eureka Flash NES510 does not have other extensions like a hose or telescoping wand. However, you can still enjoy an extended reach. It offers a cleaning path of up to 11 inches and it also lays flat to clean under the under furniture. Being a lightweight vacuum, above-floor cleaning is also stress-free.

Accessories & storage

You only get two attachments with this vacuum. One is the crevice tool which is ideal for cleaning tight spots – all nooks and crannies, cracks, and crevices. It’s also a great tool for furniture especially cleaning cushions on sofas.

The second attachment is the 2-in-1 dusting brush, a regular tool but essential for above-floor cleaning.

Eureka Flash NES510 Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review - Accessories

The vacuum offers convenient storage for the main unit and accessories. It comes with a portable storage base that is small-sized so it won’t take up much of your space. It can comfortably fit in your closet and corners. Besides, you can carry it along as you vacuum for easier access to the tools.

Filtration

Unfortunately, the vacuum doesn’t have a HEPA filtration system. Instead, it uses three regular filters. There are two washable pre-filters and an extra post filter. However, the filtration efficiency is good because the vacuum is sealed and doesn’t let dust get blown back into the air.

The filters are relatively cheap to buy and maintain. You only need to wash them under running water and leave them to dry for 24 hours or more if need be. However, to maintain optimum suction, you need to replace them once in a while.

Before you make a decision, it’s good to know the merits and demerits of the vacuum. There are many wonderful things, but a few areas of improvement.

Pros

  • The power cord does not automatically rewind – considering it is 30 feet long, it can be tedious to store.

Our Verdict

Except for high pile carpets, Eureka Flash NES510 does a commendable job on all other floor types. Its motorized floor nozzle allows you to transition easily from bare floors to carpets because of automatic height adjustment and a brushroll on/off switch.

Besides, it is lightweight and has a long cord that allows you to do more than ‘quick-picking’. If you live in a small apartment, or you need one for a small office, you will not need an additional vacuum to get the vacuuming done.

If you are looking for an affordable unit that will vacuum excellently, this is an ideal pick. The cons of this unit are common in most stick vacuums because of their compact design and should not be a deal-breaker.

Top Rated HEPA Vacuum Cleaners of 2020

Top Rated HEPA Vacuum Cleaners of 2020

Best Vacuum Cleaner with HEPA Filter - Miele Complete C3 Marin Canister HEPA Canister Vacuum Cleaner

Are you allergic to dust, pollen, and the like? If you suffer from consistent coughs and sneezing, a vacuum with HEPA filtration is one of the essential appliances you need to keep allergies at bay. But what is the best HEPA vacuum?

The most common allergens are pollen, dust, pet hair, pet dander, mold, and mildew. Effective vacuuming includes picking up all particles (seen or unseen) that could trigger allergic reactions.

A good vacuum cleaner should trap these allergens and seal them in completely such that they don’t escape back in the air. A High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter ensures this is done. We recommend vacuums with HEPA filters for every allergy sufferer.

HEPA filters have been proven to capture up to 99.97% of allergens. This gets rid of tiny particles – even as small as 0.3 microns in diameter. Alongside a HEPA vacuum, you can also get yourself an air purifier to constantly clean the indoor air.

Best HEPA Filter Vacuums – Buyer’s Guide

HEPA filters are essential in keeping allergy-causing particles as bay. Any vacuum with a simple HEPA filter should work, but you need to be keener if you have really bad allergic reactions. There are a couple of things that you need to keep in mind as you shop for the best HEPA vacuum:

a) True HEPA filters versus HEPA-type filters

Manufacturers usually label vacuums to indicate HEPA authenticity. If a vacuum is indicated HEPA or True HEPA, then it is equipped with authentic High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA).

Vacuums that indicate HEPA-like or HEPA-type do not have the traditional HEPA filters thus may not capture allergens as effectively as True HEPA filters do. HEPA filters capture 99.97% of all particles (as small as 0.3 microns in diameter).

b) HEPA filter bags

Bagged vacuums are generally better for allergy sufferers because they hardly give room for allergens to escape during disposal. This is unlike bagless models where you have to empty the dirt can and clean therefore interacting with the waste. Miele has some of the best bagged vacuums such as our top pick in this review.

Our Verdict on the Best HEPA Vacuum

Choosing the best HEPA vacuum isn’t hard because manufacturers label them and use this feature for an advertisement. However, there many vacuums to choose from. And they are all great vacuums but the Miele Complete C3 Marin HEPA Canister Vacuum stands out.

We love how its swivel head makes it easy to move around and gain access to congested spaces. Its Parquet Twister brush also enables 180 degrees rotation as you vacuum. Miele Complete C3 Marin also comes with an Electrobrush that engages the floor directly to remove stubborn dust and embedded dirt.

This is an all-surface vacuum cleaner with multiple height adjustment levels that allow easier transitioning across various surfaces. So, you get to clean bare floors, carpets, area rugs, stairs, and other above-floor areas effortlessly and effectively. If you have never had a worthwhile vacuum, this is it!

In summary, these are the best HEPA vacuums on the market in 2020:

  1. Miele Complete C3 Marin Canister HEPA Canister Vacuum Cleaner
  2. Shark APEX AZ1002 Upright Vacuum with DuoClean Zero-M Powered Lift-Away
  3. Dyson Ball Animal 2 Total Clean Upright Vacuum Cleaner
  4. Oreck Magnesium RS Swivel-Steering Upright Vacuum Cleaner LW1500RS

ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

ORFELD 18000Pa 4 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18kPa

As ORFELD penetrates the household market, their commitment to producing convenient and powerful home products is evident in their vacuums. They have simple designs yet they deliver epic results. In a market dominated by bigger brands, ORFELD is slowly but surely gaining popularity.

Stick vacuums are meant for quick cleaning. But as we progress, manufacturers like ORFELD keep enhancing them to handle whole-house cleaning. Consequently, they are fiercely competing with other brands in terms of market penetration and consumer acceptance.

They may have simple, compact, and lightweight designs but they are capable of handling tasks that were earlier believed to be too complex for them.

Beyond effortless cleaning, ORFELD EV679 delivers fade-free high suction of up to 18000Pa. It maintains this suction across all surface types on 2 modes. The Turbo mode is high-powered and is almost twice the power of Normal mode.

We discuss this further under the features.

ORFELD EV679 18kPa Cordless Stick Vacuum Review: Main Features

ORFELD 18000Pa 4 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18kPa

To understand this vacuum well, we need to expound on its main features. Later on, we’ll look at its pros & cons and finally we share our verdict.

Two cleaning modes

The vacuum allows you to choose which cleaning mode suits your surfaces best. If you are not planning to deep clean, the Normal (standard) mode will serve efficiently. It may require a few passes but it picks debris in detail. Some users opt to mop afterward but that’s optional.

If you are planning to deep clean, choose Turbo mode. This allows you to effectively clean carpets and area rugs. The incredible thing is that the suction remains consistent in each mode.

Power supply

This is a cordless stick vacuum. So, it uses one removable battery (lithium-ion). You can get up to 50 minutes of runtime on standard (Normal) mode. However, Turbo mode uses more power and the vacuum can only run for a maximum of 20 minutes.

It’s a 2-in-1 vacuum

ORFELD 18000Pa 4 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18kPa - Handheld Mode

ORFELD EV679 quickly transforms between stick and handheld modes for above-floor cleaning. It also allows you to use attachments to reach the ceiling, far corners, and crevices. The crevice/dusting brush attachment snaps easily into the wand making your cleaning experience enjoyable.

Flexible floorhead

ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - Flexible LED Electric Brush

The unit comes with a flexible electric brush with swivel steering. The floorhead has a soft roller brush that helps you pick debris and pet hair in detail as well as deep clean carpets and rugs. It also has a low-profile design that makes vacuuming under furniture easy.

LED headlights

ORFELD 18000Pa 4 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18kPa - Carpet cleaning

The ORFELD EV679 cordless stick vacuum is equipped with strong LED lights strategically placed on the electric floor brush to help you locate all the hidden dirt in dark areas.

Filtration

Over 99.9%of allergens can be captured using a HEPA filtration system. This ensures you enjoy an allergen-free atmosphere even if you have pets. The beauty of this system is that the filters are washable thus more economical in the long run.

Versatility

ORFELD 18000Pa 4 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18kPa - Cleaning Drapes

Versatility is the name of the game here. Apart from having a swivel steering head, there are many other awesome features. For example, it virtually drives itself and steers its way around immovable objects and tight spaces. The vacuum also boasts a low-profile design thus can lay flat to reach under furniture.

With a weight of less than five pounds, you can easily carry it up and down stairs without strain. You can also carry it outside for external cleanings such as car interiors or windows.

Multi-floor cleaning

Modern stick vacuums surpass traditional vacuums in their ability to clean almost every surface. The debris collection on either surface mostly depends on the floorhead openings. The wider they are, the more efficient they are on picking debris – especially the larger ones.

The challenge with larger openings on the floor head is that they pick debris efficiently but they make the vacuum less efficient on deep cleaning. The ORFELD EV679 stick vacuum however maintains a good balance. With a few passes, it manages to effectively pick debris on bare floors as well as deep clean carpets.

While on handheld mode, the vacuum manages to clean various above-floor areas with the help of an attachment. We also recommend it for automobile cleaning, windows, ceiling, and drapes.

Disposal system

ORFELD 18000Pa 4 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review - ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18kPa - Dust cup

This is a bagless vacuum. Therefore, it uses a removable dirt can that is strategically placed on the handle. It has 2 finger-operated buttons. One removes the whole unit and is usually used when you intend to rinse the dirt cup. If you only intend to empty it, a separate button is provided. This flips the dirt cup lid open for quick dirt disposal.

The one downside with ORFELD EV679 is that you may need to empty more often because the dirt can is pretty small.

Pros and Cons of ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum 18000Pa

Our verdict

ORFELD EV679 Cordless Stick Vacuum’s top qualities are ease of use, superb mobility, and efficiency. It does have an appealing look too but these are not the only merits. It is very light and its ergonomic handle makes it fun to use. We also love its simplistic design and the freedom of cordless vacuuming, plus the ability to do whole-house cleaning.

This vacuum’s hygienic disposal system is also a great attribute though the dirt can is slightly smaller than those of its peers. It can be detached and emptied separately or while still on the unit.

Besides, the vacuum can run for up to 50 minutes on Normal mode which is commendable. This is great for bare floors. However, if you have carpets, you may need to use Turbo mode. Unfortunately, this curtails the runtime to less than 20 minutes.

The only way to avoid the occasional frustrations brought about by cordless stick vacuums is to find a good corded stick vacuum.

There are many stick vacuums in the market today but ORFELD EV679 presents great value for money considering its performance and pricing. Whether you intend to use it as the main vacuum or an additional cleaning tool, the level of effectiveness is praiseworthy.

APOSEN 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review (H251)

APOSEN H251 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

In the recent past, manufacturers have invested largely in cordless stick vacuums making them more all-rounded and convenient. Over the last few years, more and more companies have delved into the vacuum cleaner market. One of the newer vacuum brands is APOSEN.

So, it’s possible to get a stick vacuum that deep cleans, maintains consistent suction power, and supports whole-house cleaning at just a fraction of the cost of the mainstream brands.

In this review, we explore each of its features in detail. We’ll also check out its pros and cons, share a brief maintenance guide, plus our verdict.

APOSEN 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum H251 Review: Main Features

APOSEN H251 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

It’s good to know what to expect from an appliance before committing to buy it. Here are this vacuum’s main features in detail.

Suction

APOSEN’s 250W brushless digital motor delivers up to 18KPa (18000Pa) of suction power on Max mode. The suction power has 2 levels and remains constant through different surfaces but it is easily affected by the dirt level in the dirt cup and how clean the filters are.

To maintain fade-free suction, empty the dirt cup before it fills up. Also, clean the filters frequently. Notably, you don’t need to vacuum on a high setting to get optimum results. Cleaning on the low setting does equally well while consuming less power.

Power

APOSEN H251 cordless stick vacuum uses one 2200mAh lithium-ion battery. This large battery is removable and can be charged separately. It takes 4.5 hours to fully charge on the mountable charging unit, then runs for an average of 30 minutes.

APOSEN 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review H251 - Battery

However, the runtime will be drastically reduced when you engage the high setting. It lasts for less than 15 minutes when running at maximum power.

Multi-surface cleaner

APOSEN H251 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

Whether you are cleaning bare floors or carpets, the APOSEN 5 in 1 delivers powerful cleaning. It helps to remove dust, dirt, large and small debris, as well as pet hair. However, expect better performance on bare floors such as hardwood and tile than on high-pile carpets and rugs.

LED headlights

The vacuum’s floorhead has LED lights making it easier to illuminate dark surfaces, under low furniture, and tight corners. The vacuum also has indicator lights for various statuses. Red indicates low power while green shows that there’s sufficient power during use. Lastly, it flashes red while charging.

Versatility

The brush head design of APOSEN 5 in 1 allows it to bend in either direction (up to 270 degrees). This plus the slim brush head makes it superbly flexible and easy to access tight corners with.

APOSEN 18000Pa 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review H251

You also experience minimal fatigue and wrist discomfort since you bend less. Besides, the accessories ease the vacuuming process. Some of the attachments you get include a round brush, an electric sofa brush, a crevice tool, and a hair cleaning tool.

Further, APOSEN 5 in 1 transforms easily between stick and handheld. This is good for above-floor cleaning.

APOSEN Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

Filtration

This vacuum has a superb filtration system. It’s equipped with a 4-stage filtration system with complete allergen sealing. So, allergens including dust, mold, pollen, pet hair, and pet dander have no chance of escaping back into the air after vacuuming.

APOSEN 5 in 1 Cordless Stick Vacuum Review H251 - Filtration System

It uses washable filters, (a HEPA filter, a stainless steel mesh filter, and a sponge filter). These filters need frequent cleaning to ensure consistent suction. Filter change is required after two to three months of use depending on how dirty the house is or how often you vacuum.

Overall, up to 99.97% of allergens are trapped inside the vacuum thanks to the HEPA filter.

Accessories

Apart from a charging base which doubles as the storage base, the vacuum comes with a crevice tool, a motorized floor tool, an electric sofa brush, pet hair brush plus the hose and wand extensions. These tools ease above-floor and external cleaning.

How to Keep Your APOSEN in Tip-Top Shape

Maintaining APOSEN 5-in-1 suction is not complex. With proper routine maintenance, the vacuum hardly needs repairs. Here are a few routines you need to observe.

Proper storage

The vacuum has a charging/storage base. So, ensure that you hang the vacuum after use. This minimizes impact falls. The charging base may be screwed to the walls using nails or wall-stickers. While the attachments do not have storage slots, you can get a spare bag to store them.

Cleaning the filters and dirt cup regularly

APOSEN Cordless Stick Vacuum H251 Review

There are two ways that the vacuum can lose suction. One, if the dirt cup is full and two, if the filters are clogged. So, always empty the dirt when the bin is half or three-quarters full. Also, when you experience loss in suction, wash the filters under running water and air-dry for 24 hours.

All the filters, including the HEPA one, are washable.

Our verdict

Evidently, you don’t need an expensive vacuum to clean effectively. You only need one with the right features – and to vacuum regularly. The best stick vacuum features include great suction, easy maneuverability, and effective filtration.

APOSEN 5 in 1 meets these requirements. It’s built with super-strong suction and a relatively narrow, low-profile floor brush that accesses every part of the house. It is also fitted with an ergonomic handle to make your cleaning experience enjoyable.

Three other features stand out for this vacuum. These are its high performing electric brush, the four-stage filtration system, and the Clean Slide dirt disposal technology. We also love the multiple accessories.

Besides the fact that the runtime is quite limited, APOSEN 5 in 1 is definitely one of the best budget stick vacuums on the market today. When compared to other stick vacuums such as Dyson V11, it is quite affordable.
