The Eureka Easy Clean hand held vacuum is a lightweight, high power model. In this review, we’ll look at the pros and cons of the Eureka Easy Clean. This review of the Eureka Easy Clean hand held vacuum also includes some observations that are neither clear pros or cons but may affect whether some shoppers would buy this unit.
Pros of the Eureka Easy Clean Handheld Vacuum
This unit is lightweight, around five pounds.
This is an affordable hand held costs around sixty dollars new, and it is periodically available on discount from that low price.
The Eureka Easy Clean generates 5.5 amps of suction. It has excellent suction given its size.
It comes with tools and hose for cleaning the inside of your car, the living room couch and stairs. It comes with a crevice tool that fits alongside the unit and a visor for cleaning stairs. However, it won’t get the very tiny nooks and crannies. However, suction for the tools when attached to the vacuum is less than if you’re cleaning with the vacuum head itself.
Flip up the visor, and this is one of the few vacuums that is easy to use to clean the vertical carpet strips on the stairs.
The unit’s bagless storage of dirt and debris means it retains suction even as the unit starts to reach capacity.
The dust bin is convenient to detach and empty.
The vacuum itself pools in a lot of dirt, even deeply ground in mud.
You can wrap the cord around the vacuum as you work, reducing the trip hazard that deters many from getting a corded handheld vacuum.
The vacuum’s brushes can pick up lint well as well as hair, but they tend to get tangled in the brush fibers themselves. You can use this for the occasional human hair, but it isn’t meant for pet vacuum.
The manufacturer has a micro vacuum attachment kit for fine detailed cleaning of a car or the tiny spaces within knit pillows that can’t be thrown in the wash; however, that kit must be bought separately. It costs around seven dollars. That gives the vacuum much more versatility than its more expensive rivals.
Cons of the Eureka Easy Clean Handheld Vacuum
The unit is loud, and it gets louder after ten to fifteen minutes of use.
The filter on this unit has to be replaced frequently. And changing it can create a mess, so change it in the garage or over a trash bin.
The dust cup isn’t very large, so it needs to be emptied periodically. And it is hard to clean all of its nooks and crannies easily.
This vacuum doesn’t do a good job with small light scattered items like pet fur or spilled grains; it picks up most of the items but blows a quarter of the material back into the air. It does a better job with spilled candy, Cheerios and so forth.
This vacuum isn’t cordless, but with a twenty foot cord, you can use it throughout the whole house without plugging it in and unplugging it. On the plus side, you don’t have to worry about the battery dying after fifteen to twenty minutes of use like comparably sized battery powered handheld vacuums.
The hose length for the vacuum itself is rather short, means you have to move the vacuum into smaller nooks and crannies where a longer hose would be appropriate and more flexible.
The hose is on the left side of the machine, which can be awkward for some users.
The vacuum has a one year warranty, which is good given its price. However, that warranty work is only done at an authorized repair center, which may necessitate shipping the unit to the repair center. Your local appliance repair place may not do warranty repairs for this unit.
This is a decent hand held vacuum with high performance given its price, as long as you aren’t detailing the fine crevices of a car, cleaning up spilled flour or picking up pet fur.
