Cylinder cleaners are some of our most popular floorcare appliances. These are usually slightly smaller, lighter and quieter than upright vacuums. Their compact designs make them ideal for accessing hard-to-reach spots like stairs and upholstery. They have a long reach so you can clean trickier places easily. The body of a cylinder vacuum rolls along behind as you work your way around a room. Use them on a variety of surfaces including carpet, laminate, lino and wooden flooring.
