With your busy schedule, you’re probably looking for quick solutions for your cleaning problems. Housekeeping can be an absolute chore, with little children and frisky pets creating troublesome messes. They sometimes make the task harder than it needs to be.
Assembling huge vacuum cleaners can be a time consuming hassle. Yet, cleaning needs to be done. This is the time for a powerful handheld vacuum cleaner, or handvac, to make an appearance. Why should we use a handvac? After all, they can’t perform big cleaning tasks.
Here are 10 good reasons to have them around:
1) They are portable
Handvacs, especially the cordless ones, are portable and easily brought to any place that needs cleaning. They rank above traditional vacuum cleaners where mobility is concerned. The usual vacuum cleaners, corded and bulky, can only be used within confined areas.
2) They go where no other vacuum can
To borrow a phrase from Star Trek, small handvacs can go where no other vacuum has gone before. These nifty devices, with the help of wonderful accessories, can clean hard-to-reach corners and crevices. Good ones work on most surfaces. They are able to get to hard to reach areas on your hardwood floors.
3) They can camp with you

WIth the help of portable adapters and chargers, they are useful additions to your cleaning arsenal. They are stored easily in your car or RV and make great traveling companions.
4) They spruce up your car
Cumbersome as they are, you wouldn’t want to use a traditional vacuum machine to clean your car. Big vacuums are usually corded and can’t be brought to your car anyway. Cars have no sockets to plug their cords into. The handvac, well-charged, solves these problems easily. They can clean out little nooks and crannies in your car with ease.
5) They don’t just clean your floors
Imagine yourself using the traditional vacuum cleaner to pick up dirt on your sofa or desk. With a clank and a clunk, the long suction hoses will surely push you over and wind themselves around you. The handvac can step in to clean surfaces that you can’t use a regular full sized machine on.
