  • Dyson You have probably most definitely seen a commercial extolling the virtues of this brand of vacuum cleaner on the television. The question is whether it is really that great of a vacuum or is its reputation just increased due to media exposure. The Dyson vacuums have really combined top of the line engineering and design, but this comes at a high price. It is one of the best cordless vacuum cleaners. It is versatile and can be used in different way. The wand can be removed and then you can use it as handheld. It is also very light in weight and cleans all the areas without any difficulty. Many studies have found that although it is a good design, it has been found to not be very reliable on a long-term basis, which is not good considering the price of this brand of vacuum. My housekeeper absolutely loves her Dyson vacuum.

  • Roomba Who wouldn’t want to have a vacuum cleaner that moves around the floors on its own vacuuming your floors? It sounds good in theory, doesn’t it? The question is how well does it truly work? This battery powered vacuuming device is much like a little robot that roams around your rooms looking for dirt and debris to suck up. It can change directions according to the obstructions on the way. It consists of a high power battery which can be charged with the help of a wall adapter. A brush, fixed horizontally on Roomba, cleans the dust and debris from areas which are not reachable to human beings easily.


Roombas follow meek algorithms for cleaning such as room crossing, wall following or spiral cleaning. Most reviews give this vacuum cleaner high marks for reliability and ease of use, which is excellent. The price is what may turn some people off, because the bottom of the line version starts at around $200. Another downside of the Roomba is the small dust collecting area. It will have to be emptied after every few uses, so that it can work efficiently. We have a Roomba, and it’s broken again. It has been a bit delicate and is expensive and a hassle to fix. We aren’t sure we’re going to fix it again.
