Winds of change: How to know the time has come to buy a new vacuum cleaner



Even if your vacuum cleaner is a tried and trusted friend of many years, an upgrade could make a major difference.

Vacuum cleaning might not be something you exactly look forward to, but it’s hard to beat the feeling of accomplishment when you’ve given your house a thorough clean. Not only in the sense that your floors look and feel more tidy, but an effective vacuum clean can help get rid of all the unseen dirt, allergens and small particles that the naked eye isn’t going to pick up.

With that in mind, picking up stray bits of pet hair or visible lumps of dirt isn’t the only way to tell if your vacuum cleaner is still doing its job effectively. There are plenty of other things to bear in mind, and sometimes a new vacuum cleaner comes with benefits you hadn’t thought of before.

If you are weighing up your options and looking for a new piece of kit, the Samsung Jet™ vacuum range and Clean Station™ offers an all-in-one solution to your vacuum cleaning needs. Lightweight, powerful and cordless, you can find out everything you need to know about the complete range here.

Old technology

When you picture a vacuum cleaner, do you conjure up images of tangled wires and boxy units from the 1980s that you have to drag behind as you go? Vacuum cleaners have moved on a long way from those days, and decades of technological advances have gifted us with some pretty phenomenal machines.

Not only are they more lightweight in design, but modern vacuums are also considerably more capable of giving floors the deep clean they need to stay looking their best. Sometimes getting the vacuum cleaner out of the cupboard to start cleaning feels like a job in itself, which is where advancements such as cordless vacuums really start to make a difference.

All you need to do is grab it and go, and the smaller design doesn’t take up anywhere near as much space as older units. We live in a world with incredible technology that makes the daily tasks of our everyday lives considerably easier, so you may as well try to make use of it and enjoy some of the perks.

The Samsung Bespoke Jet™ comes with high suction power, and a high-capacity battery that can go for up to an hour* without stopping to recharge. Weighing less than 3kg with a telescopic frame that can easily be stored neatly, you’ll certainly notice the difference if you have to climb up any stairs!

Less for more

In some ways, it’s a pity that you can’t track the mileage of a vacuum cleaner as easily as you could on a car. Even if the one you purchased worked perfectly at first, over time it could start to show signs of losing its ability to effectively clean your floors.

If there are little “quirks” to your vacuum cleaner, such as it having poor suction power, it’s a sure sign that it has gone past its best. While it’s always worth checking to see if the filter is clogged up or there is something else that can be easily repaired, there is always a chance that it simply doesn't work as well as it used to.

This means extra work for you, meaning you might have to go over the same area several times to get it clean. If you’re working harder for your vacuum than it seems to be working for you, it could be time to bring in an upgrade!

Promising exceptional suction power, the Samsung Bespoke Jet’s multi-layered filtration system is proven to trap 99.999pc of fine dust** and reduce allergens in your home.

Energy drain

Another issue with vacuuming becoming a longer task to complete is the extra strain it puts on your electricity, meaning that what should have been a five-minute run with the vacuum turns into a 30-minute battle. All that extra energy could add up over time, making it much less efficient to use.

Having a loud vacuum cleaner might be effective for getting rid of people in the room you want to clean, but it’s not exactly a pleasant experience for you. While it can be difficult to notice how loud a vacuum cleaner is once you’ve gotten used to it, you only need to see a more modern one in action to understand the difference it makes.

Excessive noise can also be a sign that there is an internal problem with the vacuum cleaner. If you start hearing noises it never used to make or it feels genuinely unpleasant to stand close to it with the power on, it’s probably trying to tell you something.
