The Vacuum Cleaner by Gtech… the long and short of it… is a tale of a British tech company… the green one…that likes batteries, invention, keeping it compact and being innovative?
Whether for your city highflyer apartment, your Chelsea townhouse or your country retreat in Provence we all require cleanliness. For many of our readers they will have cleaners, maids and house staff who will look after these matters. Even if is the case or whether your annual birthday ritual is to do some cleaning!! or you like to clean yourself or as importantly your take the wellbeing of your staff seriously and just as importantly want cleaning equipment that does the job then this is for you.
Perception is always interesting, so I was slightly surprised but pleasantly so as a Brit myself to find out Gtech are a British business and a family business into the bargain.
The first mechanical device for cleaning floors was a “carpet sweeper” invented by Daniel Hess in 1860. It had rotating brush and bellows which generated suction. The first vacuum cleaner that used the same principle as those that we use today was invented by Hubert Cecil Booth of England in 1901.
A vacuum cleaner, also known as a sweeper or hoover, is a device that uses an air pump, to create a partial vacuum to suck up dust and dirt from floors and from other surfaces such as upholstery and draperies. The dirt is collected by either a dust bag or a cyclone for later disposal.
Over the last few months I have tried out initially the Gtech Pro K9 which as an asthmatic is very much of interest as it keeps allergens under control and is ideal if you have pets as you’ll know that their hair can get everywhere, so ensuring you have a vacuum cleaner with superior suction that is easy to use and simple to store is a priority.
The bagged cordless stick vacuum was developed to clean up pet hair in seconds and with no cords and by going cordless, pets can’t chew or damage any power cables either, making cleaning safer for you and your four-legged friends. The Pro K9 comes with a range of cleaning accessories and flexible hose, extension tube and nozzle.
I was fascinated to know what could really be so different about a futuristic cleaner… Lights, cordless, suction, removable bristle roller which is super easy and then you can remove all the hair and bits wrapped around the roller and a surprising amount more.
With 5.4 million people in the UK currently receiving treatment for asthma allergens are a factor in the home. Allergies can make life a misery both for adults and children with one in 11 children in the UK having asthma. It’s the reason why Gtech has used its design and technical know how to create high performance bagged vacuums that help improve air quality for everyday living.
After having got to grips with this baby I was then invited to what Gtech claims to be the smallest, lightess and the most environmentally friendly vacuum cleaner in the world, and I have to say I was pretty amazed.
The Gtech Hylite created ideal for modern homes or the office. It weighs just 1.5k and the handle extends and retracts instantly, transforming the Hylite from an upright to a handheld vacuum in seconds.
The Hylite uses bags for a more hygienic cleaning solution. There is no dust cloud when you empty and no need to use a plastic bag each time. Also, with the Hylite the bag is the filter meaning each time you change the bag you get a new filter. The triple layered bags can hold up to three times their volume of dirt due to cleverly designed compression levels, so that each 0.3L bag can hold 1L of dirt resulting in less frequent disposal.
The Hylite uses just 90 watts of power has also been designed and made to last with its modular construction meaning that if you break a bit it’s easily replaceable (new parts can be delivered to your home the next day) and, as it has no tubes or inner workings, there is less likelihood of debris accumulating and blocking up the path the dirt takes from floor to bag.
Storage well here you are, its in a bag but can be kept in a drawer, good for modern living.
There are quite a number of Vacuum brands on the market and I imagine you may have see this green tech company offering all sorts of home and garden tech but you might not have gathered yet quite how on the money they are and definitely innovative, and with gadgets that actually work like the lights on the machines which when I first saw took me back to action man with gripping hands and eagle eyes but amazingly it does really work as you can see the dirt so much better.
Well worth having a look at this family owned British tech company.
