3. Ease of Handling

This small canister vacuum is lightweight and has wheels, which makes it easy to move around the house with. With a 6 foot retractable hose, an ergonomic handle for a good grip and an automatic cord rewind, it is very easy to maneuver around the furniture on your floor, and you can be sure that you will be able to clean those “hard to reach” places around your home. These same features make it compact and easy to store.

4. HEPA Filter

If you are (or you’re living with someone who is) asthmatic or allergic to dust, then this vacuum cleaner could be the answer to your prayers. This model includes a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) Filter which traps dust and from the air while you are vacuuming your floor, preventing it from redistributing once you are finished. This dust is trapped in the bag, and an indicator light on the cleaner lets you know when the bag is full. This makes it ideal for houses with small children or pets.

Other Features

Other notable features include a 5 year warranty as well as cleaning accessories. It is also eco-friendly because it is made from recyclable materials.

Although it comes with great features that are sure to win your hearts, it is also important to mention some of its cons.

  • The Electrolux Ultrasilencer is slightly more pricy compared to average vacuum cleaners, selling at around $300, but considering the great features it offers, it might not be such a difficult thing to dig a little deeper into your pocket for it.
  • While it is easy to maneuver, the peripheral attachments (such as the cord) have a tendency to tangle if maneuvered too much, leading to tripping sometimes when cleaning.
  • The EL6986A is a very good addition to any home, and is sure to make cleaning your hardwood floors that much easier.
