Hardwood floors are beautiful and classic, they never get old, and can always be refurbished. But let’s face it, it’s not fun trying to find the best cleaning products that will not only get the dirt up but keep the floors from looking like someone stripped them of their character and appeal.
I grew up in a brownstone with vintage, beautiful, dark hardwood floors, but my mother used a regular broom to clean them.
That was a terrible idea (which usually ended up with me having to pick up the tiny tan brush teeth by hand) but at the time this was the only option. Now, we have actual vacuums that will suck the grime out of your floors and restore their allure.
Yes, no longer are they only good for cleaning carpets, but the usage of a vacuum cleaner has evolved and Dyson has dominated this market. Take a look at a few great ones made by them:
Best Dyson Upright Vacuum for Hard Floors
Not only is this Dyson self-adjusting, it comes with whole-machine HEPA filtration to expel clean air out into your home. This is a must for people with allergies, children, and just about anyone who doesn’t want to breathe in the dust that may circulate through the air.
Reviewers were unanimous with praises about how thorough their floors were cleaned as opposed to when using a conventional mop and broom set. In addition, users loved how light weight the Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum is. If you’re more inclined to purchase cleaning equipment that isn’t bulky and heavy, I’d recommend this one. Plus, it’s chic and modern.
Best Multi Floor Cordless Vacuum
Oh, how amazing technology is and what it can do to our floors. Powered by lithium-ion batteries, this vacuum cleaner, Dyson DC35 Digital Slim Multi-Floor Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is highly reviewed as one of the quickest and easiest to not only navigate the home more efficiently but has the same powerful suction that keeps up with Dyson’s reputation.
Users loved how solid this vacuum is built, in spite of it’s sleek appearance. Although it takes about five and a half hours to charge, this vacuum is good for about 20 minutes of continuous usage, which is sufficient especially if you live in a smaller home.
Best Deal for a Dyson Vacuum
What stands out about this vacuum – Dyson Ball Multifloor Canister Vacuum Cleaner is the signature Dyson ball, which Reviewers say it gives better control and grip but still allowing you to glide smoothly on your hardwood floors.
The best part for users was the main attachment, or the Triggerhead Tool, which is perfect for getting underneath areas with little room to fit, like underneath a sofa or a low-sitting bed.
In addition, users loved how easy it is to put together and take apart to clean. It also doesn’t hurt that (because it’s made of plastic as most of Dyson’s newer models are) this vacuum is small and light in weight, so it’s easy to move and easy to store.
Best Compact Animal Hair Vacuum Cleaner
Of course by now we can expect Dyson to produce vacuums that have fantastic suction that is to be rivaled, but this one has a slight edge; most users have been able to keep the Dyson DC50 Ball Compact Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner the longest.
Reviewers loved how powerful this “animal” was in spite of its newer and smaller appearance. It’s bigger than most of Dyson’s vacuums but smaller than its previous version (this one has been updated).
If you’re a parent and want to teach your children how to help you around this house, this only weighs a solid 11.6 pounds, so it would be easier for them to push and pull.
Because Dyson’s superior ball technology allows for seamless steering, you can move about easily without those awkward jolts and unsuccessful turns. If you happen to have hardwood floors and carpet, Reviewers say the transition is smooth without losing the pressure levels.
Dyson may be one of the more expensive brands, but it’s definitely worth the money. After all, you don’t want your bare feet 50 shades of gray after walking across your semi-clean floors every day, right?
