The world of technology is constantly changing, and it isn’t exclusively with electronic devices like phones and computers. Vacuum cleaner technology is being improved and developed all the time, increasing its cleaning ability as well as making life easier for you.

#1 Vacuuming and Steam Cleaning
This fantastic feature is one that is starting to crop up more frequently. Being able to vacuum and steam clean the floor with one device doesn’ just save you time, but also a great deal of money and space as you only need one machine instead of two.
It makes cleaning more efficient, and it makes for the perfect hardwood floor vacuum. Currently, BISSELL is the market leaders for this particular form of vacuum cleaner and we’re sure that brands such as Shark will be quick to follow suit.
#2 Anti-Hair Wrap Technology
Shark recently released this technology, and it has made all the difference to the cleaning capabilities of their machine as well as reduced maintenance. The brush roll on the main floorhead has a silicone guard that prevents the hair from becoming tangled around the bar, instead directing it straight to the bin.
This makes it a lot easier to clean both hard floors and carpets alike. It’s technology that’s here to stay, and we are sure similar will be seen on other brands of vacuum cleaner in the coming months.
#3 Advanced Hard Floor Cleaning Heads
Efficient and well-designed floorheads that are dedicated to hard floor cleaning are becoming more commonplace than ever before. These tend to be specially designed so that they are gentle on hard surfaces in order to prevent scratching, while also collecting debris and fine dust.
Shark, Dyson, and Numatic are all excellent for hard floor cleaning heads, but other brands are also starting to move in this direction. As each new vacuum is released, you can see a marked improvement in the technology used for hard floor cleaning.
#4 Cordless Vacs That Beat Corded
It used to be that the cordless vacuum cleaner was made for convenience, but the suction never quite lived up the standards of the traditional vacuuming unit. All of that is changing, and cordless vacuum cleaners now contain a range of technological features that make them just as good as their corded counterparts if not better. This thanks to the ever-advancing capabilities of the battery.
#5 Interactive Display
Dyson’s latest V11 range uses a perfect example of an improved digital display. The Absolute model doesn’t just show you standard things like the battery level and power settings, it goes a whole step further.
It actually shows you a detailed video guide for things like how to change the filter, empty the dust canister, or fix a problem with the suction in the machine. This makes home maintenance a lot simpler but also reduces the need for you to call Dyson and wait on hold. The videos themselves repeat in a loop and show you several different scenarios depending on the issue you are facing.
There is a lot to be excited about in terms of tech for 2020, and this is some of the best that vacuum cleaners have to offer. However, we know that 2021 is going to see some incredible features improved and made more mainstream as well as new ones being developed.
The vacuum cleaner isn’t just another home appliance, it’s part of our daily lives and the routines that we make – we deserve something that ensures cleaning and home maintenance are easier and more efficient.
