Why Is A Cordless Vacuum Better? (3 Reasons Explained)

Today I will be discussing why is a cordless vacuum better. One good example of a cordless vacuum is a stick vacuum cleaner.

While in manufacturing sites, it is even referred to as a vacuum stick.

This is one type of vacuum cleaner that has become very popular. This is especially true for modern homes that lack space for a storage area.

So, let’s find out the reasons why!

Why Is A Cordless Vacuum Better?

A cordless vacuum cleaner is better due to its compactness and portability. Usually, come in the form of a STICK VACUUM. It can be stored easily since it only occupies a small space. Cordless vacuums are multi-functional. They can be used for multiple applications, one good example is an alternative handheld CAR VACUUM cleaner.

1. Portable and Convenient to Use

This is one of the main reasons why a cordless vacuum is better and is becoming popular.

The absence of the AC cord makes the cordless vacuum cleaners easier to use.

The usual problem encountered using a wired vacuum is that the extended cord can easily get entangled during vacuuming.

And with the advancement of technology, new vacuum designs have improved suction power even with smaller motors.

Moreover, cordless vacuums are lightweight, especially the newer designs because of the latest technology making their parts lighter as well as more durable.

While working as a Quality Inspector for a European company, I have checked different models, especially the cordless stick vacuum cleaners that can stand on their own.

Cordless vacuum cleaners have been highly in demand, especially in modern home settings such as high-rise residential buildings where every square inch of the space has to be utilized.

And because of its compact design, it can be stored in many ways.

As I mentioned earlier, there are some designs of cordless stick vacuums that can stand on their own. And normally, it has a foldable handle like the image below, thus, making storage even more optimized.

Then, you can recharge it again using the supplied AC power adapter.

Besides its main function which is to clean the floor (e.g., ceramic tiles, parquet, carpet, etc). It can also be utilized to clean your car seats and dashboards, your upholstery, cabinets, computer keypads, and many others.
