Quite often, standard canister or upright vacuums do the majority of cleaning jobs pretty well but we are left needing something smaller, simpler and more user-friendly for staircases and other hard to reach places. The Eureka RapidClean41A is a handheld vacuum with some interesting features that could be a great addition to the cleaning arsenal.
The Eureka Handheld Step vacuum has a clear aim for convenient, effective cleaning and offers this in many ways
The main reason for buying a handheld vacuum, for most buyers at least, is greater convenience in hard to reach places and this Eureka model aims to provide this in two important ways. The first is what it calls “28ft reach systems”. What this means is that the long 25ft cord can let users take the machine pretty much anywhere around the room and up the stairs and the 3ft hose with crevice tool offers that little extra in reach and flexibility for the most difficult nooks and crannies.
Secondly, this vacuum is said to be “designed specifically with stairs in mind” so it can offer the best possible performance in what is often a fairly tricky part of the home. A large part of this cleaning power is down to the multi-surface cleaning abilities. There is an on/off button on the brushroll; turn it on and the brushes are active and ready to get deep into carpets, turn it off and you can tackle harder surfaces. This dual ability means that this product is also handy for those little spills on tiled kitchen floors and buyers have also highlighted the products potential on furnishings, particularly on pet hair. Power and high suction are also desirable and this machine, with its 6 amp motor, has seen few complaints here.
In addition to these important selling points, there are also a number of other little details that add to the ease of use and appeal of this handheld vacuum. The compact shape means that it is easy to transport around the house and easy to store – something that is also aided by the 6lb weight. Not only does that long cord wrap neatly around the body out of the way, the hose has a little caddy on the side to keep it secure when not in use. Additionally, it has easy roll wheels that user say makes it much easier to handle and it is bagless, with an easy-clean filter that just needs to be rinsed under the tap. Some have complained about the lack of capacity this brings but that really is a downside of the style not the model and most find this feature to be incredibly convenient.
This Eureka RapidClean 41A aims to make short work of stairs and generally seems to succeed
There are a lot of positive comments expressing this model as being on of the best handheld vacuum from happy buyers and much of this is down to the product’s ability to fulfill its claims about cleaning stairs. Thankfully, this is more than just a one trick pony and the user-friendly details in the design and the multi-floor capabilities mean that this little corded appliance has a lot in its favor.
