Ensuring your home stays dust-free is an ongoing challenge, but a topnotch vacuum cleaner will help you to get the job done more quickly and with less effort. Consider whether you prefer an upright or cylinder model, with mains or cordless power, and you may also wish to buy a handheld model for everyday cleanups, without getting the main vacuum out of the cupboard. We’ve chosen a selection of some of our favourites to suit all budgets, so take a look and choose the right one for you, to help banish dust from your home.

 

Gtech hooverGtech’s latest AirRam offers a cordless design with proven performance on both carpet and hard floors, without the need to change the settings. Its power comes from a 22V Lithium-ion battery, which will run for up to 40 minutes, and takes four hours to charge. The powerful rotating brush bar picks up pet hair easily, while the collected dirt is compressed into a capsule in the head, which can then be ejected straight into the bin, with no mess or hassle. The clever design steers easily and glides across floors, and it weighs in at just 3.5kg so it’s perfect if you struggle to lift a heavy vacuum

John LewisThe futuristic design of Dyson’s latest model comes at a high price, but it’s a great option for both carpets and hard floors if you’re looking to splash out. Ball technology enables it to glide along effortlessly, and it will right itself if toppled. Fine dust is captured by carbon fibre filaments, and ground-in dirt is easily removed by stiff nylon bristles – Dyson’s Cinetic Science separates the microscopic dust which can clog a vacuum, resulting in no loss of suction. It features a 6.6-metre cable, and comes complete with an array of tools
