I seem to spend a large proportion of my day pushing my vacuum cleaner around, thanks to my messy children and black kitchen tiles which show every crumb. A sweeping brush just doesn't clean well enough and getting the big vacuum cleaner out after every meal is a little tiresome. The GTech Cordless sweeper sounded like the perfect solution.
I have been very impressed, the sweeper is very compact and light ( it weighs less than 1.7kg ) meaning it is easy to push around and even easier to store. It can be used on all types of floors and worked really well on my tiles, wooden floors and carpets.
The Gtech charges on its own very small stand, which has an eco setting to charge the sweeper in just 4 hours, but you can just leave it on the stand all the time. Once fully charged it lasts for 60 minutes. There are no bags or leads, just this small charger.
The handle is telescopic which means even my children have been able to use it easily.
The dust and dirt collects in a tray on the side which is very easy and clean to empty.
The brush bar is very powerful and collects all the visible dirt from the carpet, it even has an edge cleaning brush to collect debris from skirting boards.
This sweeper really is great, I don't think you could use it instead of a full size vacuum cleaner but for a quick clean or just doing a small area it really is fantastic, and so easy to take up and down the stairs. I would definitely recommend it. The only downside is that is it quite noisy.
The RRP is £69.99 which I think is really great value, as it costs less than a penny to recharge so running costs are minimal.
