I would first of all like to start with the good points about this vacuum cleaner, and there are plenty!! The Eureka Quick-Up Cordless is by far one of the best cordless vacuums that I have ever used.
First of all, I’d like to start with telling you how light this thing is! I am generally not a very strong woman and used to struggle when moving some of my previous vacuum cleaners around when cleaning different areas of the house. This is part of the reason I’m such a big fan of cordless vacuums. The Quick-Up solved this problem instantly with it’s tremendously light weight. I no longer had to strain my back when lifting up my vacuum cleaner.
Pretty much all of my previous vacuum cleaners were terribly noisy when in operation but the Eureka Quick-Up is extremely quiet and I can even use it when the kids are in bed. I also liked how easily the handle installs and removes compared to some of my previous vacuum cleaners. This cordless vacuum can be quickly transformed into a hand held vacuum. As a mother of 2 small children this comes in handy when my children are eating cookies and spill crumbs on the floor. I can quickly turn my vacuum cleaner into a hand held vacuum and clean up the mess no problem at all.
Another feature I like about this vacuum is the stair cleaning handle which is provided. I used to have major problems cleaning my stairs with previous vacuums due to the awkward angle due to the the handle. Thanks to this little vacuums clean stair cleaning handle, I no longer face this problem. Another problem I used to face with my previous vacuums is my laminate flooring would become scratched due to the nozzle scraping against the floor. Even a lot of the small cordless vacuum cleaners that I have owned have done some significant damage to my laminate flooring. The Quick-Up comes with a brush roll which can be switched on and off for when you need to clean different floor surfaces and does not damage my laminate flooring. I have tested this cordless vacuum cleaner on a number of different floor surfaces such as –
- hard stairs
- laminate flooring
- stone flooring
The Quick-Up Cordless Vacuum works incredibly well on all of these floor surfaces and does not cause any damage.
When I first received my Quick-Up and turned the power on for the very first time I was not expecting the suction power that it produced! It easily picked up all of the mess on my floor with ease. I have had my Quick-Up cordless vacuum cleaner for over a year now and still to this day the suction is amazingly powerful.
Overall this vacuum cleaner is amazing for when I’m doing the house work. The only bad point I feel that I need to mention about this vacuum is that it can be a bit messy when emptying. When I emptied the vacuum for the very first time I had the problem with the dust coming out as I took off the cap. When I empty it now I just take it outside, open my garbage can and hold the vacuum inside it while I empty it. I give it a few taps on the side of the garbage can to make sure all of the dust is completely removed. Other than this I don’t have anything negative to say about this awesome vacuum and would say it is one of the best cordless vacuum cleaners that I have ever used. As a professional housewife, I would give this cordless vacuum cleaner a rating of 9/10.
Product Rating: 4.8
