One thing you’ll probably know right away about the Hoover BH50140 vacuum is that it’s from a recognizable, great quality household brand. This means that you already know that it’s going to come with some of the best features, strengths and with little weaknesses.

To begin with let’s talk about the lovely ergonomic design of the vacuum. As you can see from the picture it is elegantly designed in a silver, blue and orange. It is then also lightweight for easily vacuuming without the strain of a heavier option.

The battery is something that you’ll definitely want to know about. It is powerful battery that will last for around 25 minutes. The recommendation being that you have a spare battery to get up to 50 minutes of usage, or even a third for more time.

It doesn’t compromise on power or features just because it’s cordless. You’ll be whizzing round sucking up all kinds of dirt because it has the famous WindTunnel 3 technology which is designed for maximum suction power. And it’s not even all that noisy.

A neat feature in addition to this is that it has these cool LED headlights which are designed to help you find the areas that aren’t fully cleaned. Isn’t that pretty cool and futuristic? What would your friends say to seeing you whizzing round with the headlights on, searching for dirt? Surely they’d think of you as a lord of vacuuming.

It has some removable parts, the first of which is the coolest. It is the removable and cleanable filter. So you don’t need to replace the filter with new ones, just take it out and clean it for maintaining maximum suction power. Then it has detachable parts for vacuuming smaller nooks and crevices that you need to get into, or for vacuuming the stairs.

So what’s stopping you from snapping this up? If you want a cordless vacuum that gets the job done, does it well and is elegantly at the top of the market, then why not this one?

How to Choose a Vacuum

Choices; they aren't always easy. Informed choices are. In the case of buying a vacuum there can be jargon to hop skip and jump over. As there are many vacuums to choose from but also many features. That's where this quick guide comes into play. Learn some of the common factors of vacuums so you can make an informed choice.


Power (in watts) is kind of a big deal when it comes to vacuums. If you don't have the right power for the job then it's not worth doing. Vacuums come with many power ranges. Some vacuums that don't have much power are still great while others aren't. Look out for the strength of the power behind that vacuum if you want to be sure it'll suck all that dirt up.

Upright or Cylinder

From a personal perspective upright is the better choice generally. The issue is upright vacuums are usually awkward when it comes to hard-to-reach areas. They do come with attachments usually, but the reach just isn't there as it is with cylinder vacuums  In essence  a cylinder vacuums is generally more versatile when it comes to nooks and crannies. Choose wisely, it could be a big regret.

Bag or Bagless?

Do you want to empty your vacuum regularly and not replace the bag? It's a huge money saver to not have a bagged vacuum  The better option usually being bagless. It's down to personal preference here, and probably again, maneuverability when it comes to the emptying process.

Filters (Allergies?)

A vacuum with a suitable filter can go a long way in any case. Though if you have an allergy, a filter will go an even longer way. There's a range of common filters to choose from, that each have their own advantages, either value for money or more allergy suitable:

Standard Filtration

Nothing out of the ordinary here, just a standard filter that will need replacing every now and then.

HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air)

This is actually a bit of a mouthful to say, never mind understand. All you really need to know about HEPA filters is that they are becoming industry standard, and claim to capture 99.7% of all particles taken in by the vacuum. Meaning that the air outflow is cleaner and especially cleaner for those with allergies.

Lifetime Filters

They say nothing lasts a lifetime, but have you ever owned one of those old Nokia phones? Lifetime filters come in both standard and HEPA, and can save on having to buy replacements which is great for saving money.

Size and Weight

Does size matter? Yes it does. When shopping be careful to check the dimensions of a product. Is it suitable for your storage? Suitable to carry? Will it be a big struggle or the perfect size for your needs? Speaking of size, there are vacuums that come as handhelds for small tasks; usually great for cleaning up after pets or that mess you leave after your artistic creations.

Wet, Dry & Steam

Depending on the surface; you may look into a wet, dry or steam powered vacuum. Check suitability of the surface for the vacuum you purchase  you may find that dry is better than steam or wet is better than both.
