How to use a handheld vacuum?

Regardless of what type of handheld vacuum you choose, learning how to operate it is critical for cleaning any space. 

A handheld vacuum is especially helpful to elderly users who may have difficulty manoeuvring a bulky, heavy vacuum cleaner. 

Here are some tips to keep in mind while using a handheld vacuum cleaner.

Power modes

A handheld vacuum cleaner can be purchased with a strong and low suction mode. High suction mode cleans better but drains the battery faster. Manufacturers will list the runtime in each mode, and normal and intensive modes are not necessarily related.

If you want to use a handheld vacuum for large rooms, you’ll want to use a high suction mode. If you want to clean a small room, use a low suction mode. The low suction mode is useful for light dust and hair, but may not be effective enough for large rooms.

The Black+Decker AdvancedClean+ Pet has a larger dirt compartment. This model isn’t as lightweight and compact as the Wyze Handheld Vacuum, but it comes with a turbo brush for tough messes. It has 15-30 minutes of runtime on a charge. 

This vacuum takes longer to recharge, so you may want to work quickly while vacuuming. Although this model comes with an extension hose, it is not as portable as the Wyze Handheld Vacuum.

Crevice tool

One of the most versatile tools for cleaning a variety of areas is the Crevice Tool for handheld vacuum cleaners. With its flexibility, it can be used in all directions to reach any tight spot. 

This flexible tool is over 22 inches long and compatible with most hose ends. It can reach areas with a width of half an inch to one-quarter inch. Other uses of this tool include cleaning behind furniture, air ducts, and radiators. 

This versatile tool is also effective for cleaning auto detailing.

The crevice tool for handheld vacuum cleaners has a flexible nozzle that allows it to access areas that are otherwise difficult to access. The Dyson Flexi crevice tool, for example, is two tools in one. 

The crevice tool can be extended up to 19cm, enabling you to get into tight spaces. It can also reach a narrow gap of 2.5cm. Despite its narrow size, the Dyson Flexi crevice tool can reach even the tightest spots.

Dusting brush

When you’re using your handheld vacuum cleaner, a dusting brush is an essential accessory. These tools are flexible and strong enough to tackle the most delicate tasks. 

They’re perfect for cleaning high-up surfaces, such as ceiling fans and window frames, and fit most of your favourite attachments. This article will show you how to choose the right brush for your handheld vacuum cleaner. Whether you need one for dusting or tight spots, here’s what you need to know.

Dusting brushes for handheld vacuum cleaners come in two types: a standard broom style and a microfiber option. 

Both types are designed to pick up lint and dust. The brush head sweeps the bottom of the vacuum cleaner while the broom-style attachment brushes the top of the fan blades. 

The microfiber cloth brush head brushes hair and dust away from blinds and the top of fan blades.

Battery life

Many people are concerned about the battery life of a handheld vacuum cleaner. Luckily, lithium batteries are more powerful and last longer than NiCd batteries. While they’re not as light as NiCd batteries, they still provide the highest power density.

Additionally, lithium batteries tend to hold a charge better than NiCd ones and last longer. This means that you won’t have to worry about your handheld vacuum battery dying or your vacuum losing suction every time it runs out of power.

The battery life of a handheld vacuum cleaner is an important factor to consider when selecting one. Some models have battery life indicators, which can help you monitor their remaining life. 

Others may even feature a battery light to indicate when it’s time to recharge. However, you should keep in mind that battery life and recharge time will depend on your own usage habits. 

You’ll also want to consider the battery life of cordless models, as these typically have longer battery life.


Most handheld vacuum cleaners are capable of picking up visible dirt and crumbs, regardless of their price. Others are better at picking up heavy objects, but some are also better at picking up light objects. 

A handheld vacuum cleaner can be used to quickly sweep over hard surfaces, while others need attachments like a crevice tool. 

You should always buy a handheld vacuum cleaner that has HEPA filtration and a sealed system to prevent dust from recirculating.

Depending on the handheld vacuum, the dustbin capacity may vary. If the dustbin is larger, it will have to be emptied less frequently. To extend the life of a handheld vacuum cleaner, keep the filter clean. 

Battery life is one of the greatest advantages of a handheld vacuum. Handheld vacuums can last up to several months on one charge depending on the voltage. 

Handheld vacuums can also be used to clean small spaces, like around windows and in crevices.

Cleaning messes with a handheld vacuum cleaner

You can clean up messes in small spaces with handheld vacuum cleaners. Handheld vacuum cleaners come in several types, and you should choose one that meets your needs and your budget.

Dyson’s DC18 is a lightweight vacuum that weighs just 1.4 pounds, making it perfect for spot cleaning. A one-touch eject button and an LED display are included. In addition, it has a 0.2-gallon dust bin and washable filter. 

Portable, lightweight, and equipped with two attachments, this handheld vacuum is perfect for travel. Regardless of how messy things get, these accessories can help get them cleaned up. 

You can purchase these accessories separately or in conjunction with the handheld vacuum to get the best results.
