Air Total Home C89-MA-T Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner

I’m part of the Vax Voice team which means I get the chance to test out Vax products and provide a fair report back to you on them. A few months ago we tried their carpet cleaner and I have to say this has proved absolutely invaluable especially after a little boy sickness episode *ahem*.

Anyway, the latest thing we tried was the Air Total Home C89-MA-T Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner. This is a little compact cylinder vacuum cleaner which can be used all around the home. One of its strengths is that the filters don’t get blocked which means it keeps its suction and all the dirt goes into a container which is easy to empty and saves you from buying more vacuum cleaner bags.

I have to admit this is rapidly becoming one of the best vacuum cleaners I have owned, not least because it is nice and small which means that it is easy to store. I liked the length of the hose and all the extra accessories and have been really pleased with the results. We have a lot of food dropped on the floor with two toddlers and it seems to tackle this really well.

One of the best features of this cleaner is that fact that the hose is so long you can leave the cleaner at the bottom of the stairs whilst you hoover. I think this is a brilliant feature and makes it very safe. I have to admit it isn’t brilliant to move around in a position other than straight, but then for me that isn’t too much of an issue as I have to be careful about vacuuming up the kids when I get too carried away!

Although the cleaner feels a little bit plastic compared to other ones I have used it does come with a SIX year guarantee which is one of the best I have come across and means that you don’t need to worry too much. Regardless,  it does seem quite sturdy as I’m quite heavy handed and have been using it for a few weeks without any problems at all.

Now, I would show you some before and after pictures, but in a way these are quite meaningless apart from showing how filthy my house can get. I could offer you a picture of me as a domestic goddess with my cleaner but at nearly 38 weeks pregnant it would be more like a beached whale pushing a vacuum cleaner so on this occasion you’ll have to take my word for it. I think this cylinder Vacuum Cleaner deserves 4/ 5, if you are looking for something small, powerful and practical its a really good buy.
