Our floorcare favourites – from hard floors to carpet, we’ll help you get flawless floors
Your poor hard floors and carpets don’t half put up with a lot. You take time and care to choose your floors and pay good money for them, so it goes without saying that you want to keep them looking their best for as long as possible. Daily wear and tear, and muddy footprints can leave your floors looking less than lovely, so we know how invaluable the right vacuum, mop and steam cleaner can be. Through endless hours of research and investigation (aka mopping up muddy paw prints and jam stains), we’ve rounded up the best kit to use on all different kinds of floors.
Hard floor heroes
A Lakeland customer favourite, the Bona Spray Mop is an all-in-one floorcare system that makes cleaning and protecting hard floors really simple. With an on-board cartridge that sprays the quick-drying formula with a squeeze of the handle, you don’t even need a mop and bucket. And as the microfibre cleaning pad is on a 360° swivel head, gliding it across your floor couldn’t be easier.
With two to choose from – one for wood floors, and another for stone, tile and laminate, you can trust Bona to get your floors pristine. Bona have specialised in hard floor care for about 100 years, and it doesn’t surprise us a bit that our customers love them so much.
We have lift-off
Ever wish you could cruise from room to room, cleaning your floors to polished perfection as you go? Your dreams have come true. The AirCraft PowerGlide is a super-effective, cordless floor cleaner with two rotating discs that clean, polish and buff a range of hard surfaces. There’s no need to get on your hands and knees or spend time scrubbing with this machine – the AirCraft glides over your floor, removing even the most stubborn of stains.
We love how steam cleaning gets your hard floors really clean – not just removing the dirt you can see, but the bacteria you can’t. And whether you need to do a light clean, your floor is covered in muddy footprints or you’ve had a culinary disaster that’s resulted in more food on the floor than on your plate, Shark’s Klik n’ Flip Smartonic Steam Mop will get the job done quickly, efficiently and without you even having to touch the double-sided cleaning pad to change it. And Shark have now added scrubbing power to steam power to create the ultimate steam mop. The Steam & Scrub Automatic Mop’s rotating pads combine with blasts of steam to remove dirt, dust, grease, grime, stubborn stains and 99.9% of bacteria in a jiffy. You’ll never go back to ‘normal’ mopping.
A clean sweep
Vacuum cleaners have come a long way since the days of William Henry Hoover, and getting your carpets and floors free from dust, dirt and pesky pet hair is now easier than ever. If you need a compact handheld vacuum for quick clean-ups of spilt cereal or dropped breadcrumbs; lightweight cordless models like Shark’s WandVacs are just the ticket – they convert from upright to handheld at the touch of a button.
Perfect if you love your pets, but not their hair clogging up the vacuum, Shark’s Anti Hair Wrap TruePet Cordless Vacuum Cleaner uses Anti Hair Wrap technology to keep the brush rolls tangle-free, so there’ll be no more getting the scissors out for the unpleasant job of cutting the hair out.
Working equally well on both carpets and hard floors, you can’t go wrong with a Henry Vacuum Cleaner – with his extra-long cable he’ll give you high-quality vacuuming all over your home and a with cheery smile to boot.
Here to help do her bit for the environment while she’s making your home (and car) spotless, the Hetty Vacuum Cleaner has turned eco – with a high-efficiency motor that makes her perfect for everything from the big spring clean to a quick spruce-up, all while using 30% less energy than before.
And if you’ve let your carpets get a bit too dirty, or you’ve got stains that a vacuum can’t lift up, check out our carpet cleaners to get you back on the right track.
Stop dirt in its tracks
Ideally, of course, it helps if you don’t let your floors get too dirty in the first place – so make sure you get keep the great outdoors where it belongs by using one of our very thirsty Ultra-Trap Microfibre Mats – they’ll soak up to a staggering 6 litres of water, making light work of the wettest wellies and muddiest boots to help to keep the bad weather on the right side of the door.
