If you’ve found the perfect canister or upright vacuum for your home and you love to use it, congratulations! Nothing makes cleaning easier than having the right tool for the job. However, for those days when small messes crop up and you’re short on time a hand or stick vacuum may be just the thing to round out your arsenal of cleaning supplies.
Stick vacuums are small upright machines designed for light duty cleaning (such as vacuuming dry cereal or crumbs in the morning) or for quick pickups in between regular vacuuming. They are not intended to be the primary vacuum in a home as the motor is smaller in size, and most do not allow for use of attachments.
The Electrolux UltraPower EL3000 is a brand new stick vacuum with a one hour battery life. It’s designed to be there when you need it, and with three cleaning speeds will pick up on both bare floors and carpet. The Hoover LiNX BH50010 is our most popular stick vacuum and has a fade-free rechargeable battery with power indicator so you know when it’s time to charge the battery. Both are lightweight and easy to maneuver around furniture and in tight spaces. With the average stick vacuum weighing 7 lb. (just over 3 kg), they are easy to operate and convenient to store.
Hand vacuums are used for cleaning upholstery, stairs, vehicles, and other areas that are difficult to clean with a full size vacuum. There are many options beyond the original “dust buster” style and many feature powerful motors, deep cleaning brush rolls, attachments, and bagless operation. The Eureka 71B has a built in hose and crevice tool for cleaning tight spaces, as well as a power switch for constant suction. This means no trigger or button to hold down when vacuuming – which is one of the biggest complaints we hear about handheld vacuums.
McHardy Vacuum stocks many makes, models, and styles of hand and stick vacuums – we have one that’s right for you. Cleaning your home efficiently has never been easier!
