    The V15 mastered our tasks with flying colours: 100% of the dirt was cleaned up by the cordless hoover.

    The Dyson V15's cleaning results on hard floors.

    The V15 achieves this result partly due to its 230 Air Watt suction power - the most powerful suction power ever measured in a cordless vacuum cleaner. ?

    Dyson Omni-glide main article

    Dyson Omni-glide

    Dyson Omni-glide

    The innovative design makes it smaller and lighter, which makes the device highly manoeuvrable. The Dyson Omni-glide is especially designed for hard floors.

    This cordless hoover delivered very good cleaning results on hard floors in our review.

    Dyson Omni-glide review UK


    Dyson Omni-glide review: A specialist in hard floor cleaning

    The Dyson Omni-glide is specifically aimed at small apartments with hard floors throughout.

    No time to clean? Don't worry! The device cleaned our test area very quickly.

    It "only" has 50 air watts, but it makes up for this shortcoming with its special design and achieves a very good cleaning result on hard floors.

    However, the Dyson Omni-Glide is not suitable for Carpet.

    Specifically designed for hard floors: The 360-degree floor nozzle

    The Omni-glide impresses with a 360-degree floor nozzle that is specifically designed for hard floors.

    The 360 degree floor nozzle of the Omni-glide

    The two soft rollers of the nozzle are gentle on your hard floor and pick up dirt very well.

    High manoeuvrability

    The best thing about this vacuum cleaner is its size and manoeuvrability. You can push the vacuum cleaner in all directions.

    But that's not the only thing that makes it very handy...

    What makes this vacuum cleaner stand out?

    The slim design and handle make the Omni-glide light and easy to steer.  It feels like you’re pushing it around on a cushion of air!

    This Video says it all:

    It doesn’t have the power or the suction of Dyson’s strongest vacuums, but it doesn’t need it. 

    In our real-world tests, it performed as well as vacuums with much higher levels of suction.

    A lightweight cordless hand hoover

    The Omni-glide can also be used as a cordless hand hoover

    The lightweight design means that you can lift the device comfortably for longer periods of time without tiring your arm.

    Dyson Omni-glide hand vacuum cleaner

    Dyson also supplies accessories that are great for vacuuming your furniture and other objects.

    Battery life and emptying

    The Dyson Omni-glide is very light and easy to use.

    However, therein lies the dilemma of the product.

    You pay for a lightweight device with high manoeuvrability.

    That means: a smaller bin and shorter battery life.

    That's why the Omni-glide is great for small to medium-sized flats or as a supplement to a robot vacuum cleaner.

    However, it’s not suitable for large flats.

    Whether you buy the SPB100 suction mop attachment to go with the VB100 as a set or separately is of secondary importance. In a set, however, you can save money.

    The fact is: You can vacuum and mop the floor with one device.

    Why cordless hoovers?

    Hard floors require a lot of cleaning and care.

    The cleaner our home is, the more comfortable we feel.

    However, when cleaning hard floors you have to take the material of the floor covering into account.

    Many floors are sensitive and can only tolerate a little water. This makes it even more important that you have a decent appliance for regular cleaning.

    You also need the right accessories for your individual floor covering.

    Cordless vs. wired

    Recent tests have shown that the best cordless hoover models are now better than conventional corded hoovers.

    This is not only because they have a good suction power, but also because of their clever accessories and very high flexibility.

    So why continue to use corded devices, when it is also possible with an easy to use cordless vacuum cleaner?

    The advantages of cordless vacuum cleaners are obvious.

    What are hard floors?

    Hard floors are floors that are made of hard materials.

    Nowadays, there are an incredible number of hard floors.

    There are cheap ones and expensive ones, beautiful ones and ugly ones, and of course all made of different materials.

    According to Which?, the most common hard floors in the UK are:

    • Laminate flooring
    • Engineered wood flooring
    • Solid wood flooring
    • Reclaimed wood flooring
    • Parquet flooring
    • Bamboo flooring
    • Wood-effect tiles
    • Cork flooring

    Different floor types are more or less sensitive than others, which is why different appliances are better suited to certain floor types than others.

    Take a look at our recommendations for the most important types of hard floor!

    Which model is the best cordless hoover for a parquet?

    A homely and warm wooden floor ? looks so beautiful and immediately makes any flat feel much cosier.

    Everyone who has parquet knows the problem:

    As beautiful as the floor is, it also scratches quickly and that is annoying ?

    Some scratches can't be avoided, but you can definitely avoid scratches from your hoover by choosing the right device and the right attachment!

    Why use a parquet nozzle?

    The decisive factor here is that the cordless hoover comes with a well-functioning hard floor attachment or a parquet nozzle.

    Parquet attachment by Dyson

    These attachments are particularly gentle on expensive and sensitive parquet floor. Read more in the chapter "Hard floor cleaning accessories"!

    How often should I vacuum my parquet floor?

    Vacuuming is the best way to keep your parquet floor clean. With the right attachment, you can gently clean it and remove everyday dust and dirt.

    Don't worry, the cordless vacuum cleaner won't damage your floor!

    However, when it comes to mopping the parquet floor, the rule is: Less is more!

    In fact, it should only be mopped when necessary. If you mop too much, you run the risk that the parquet will suffer and lose its shine.

    Don't worry, the cordless vacuum cleaner won't harm it.
    When it comes to mopping the parquet floor, however, the rule is:
    Less is more!
    In fact, it should only be mopped when necessary. If you mop too much, you run the risk that the parquet will suffer and lose its shine.

    The following products have proven to be particularly gentle on parquet:

    Cordless Vacuum Cleaners for Plank Flooring

    Plank flooring is also a popular type of hard floor. The rustic wood can usually stand a few scratches.

    But scratches can still happen, which is why we should rely on an excellent device.

    Which hoover is best for laminate?

    Laminate flooring is very common in the UK. The material is not solid wood, such as parquet, but often looks confusingly similar.

    Laminate comes in different price ranges and qualities and you certainly don't want your floor to get scratched!

    You don't have to be quite as careful when vacuuming laminate as you do with parquet, but you still want to avoid scratches.

    We generally recommend using the hard floor attachments.

    However, a very good standard brush should normally be sufficient.

    Beware of small stones. They can cause scratches when vacuuming.

    We recommend the following cordless vacuum cleaners for cleaning laminate flooring (in addition to those we recommend for parquet, of course):

    The best cordless hoover for vinyl flooring

    Vinyl flooring (read more here) is not a wooden floor, but it often looks like one.

    It is much more resistant than wooden floors, but still not completely scratch-proof.

    Therefore, the same applies here: better safe than sorry!

    Basically, you can vacuum and mop this flooring as often as you like, it will not lose much of its beauty over time, apart from normal wear and tear.

    When buying a cordless vacuum cleaner, you don't necessarily have to make sure that you have the latest developments for sensitive floors.

    Our recommendations ?

    Which model is the best hoover for floor tiles?

    Most tiles are rather robust in nature. Therefore, this point plays a minor role here.

    We often noticed, with tiles in our review, that various vacuum cleaners moved the dirt around instead of picking it up.

    This can be annoying, and you have to clean longer than necessary.

    That's why we recommend that you pay attention to quality!

    For tiles, you might also be interested in vacuum mop combos.

    Which Vorwerk model is best for hard floors?

    The Vorwerk VB100 model, for example, can be equipped with a suction mop attachment. You can then vacuum and mop at the same time.

    The best cordless vacuum cleaners for cork floors

    Cork floors have a beautiful natural look and require special care.

    Similar to a sensitive wooden floor, you should not mop the cork floor too often.

    It makes more sense to use a cordless hoover or a broom regularly.

    If you choose a cordless hoover, make sure it doesn't scratch the floor.

    Here are some of our favourites for cork floors ?

    Here's what you need to consider when buying a cordless hoover for hard floors

    The UK market is full of cordless hoovers, and decent ones cost a lot of money ?

    That' s why you should consider the purchase of a (rechargeable) hoover as a long-term investment that will last you a long time.

    A good enough reason to take a closer look before buying, and to buy the right vacuum cleaner right away.

    This will save you a lot of time and hassle.

    Here are important criteria that you should consider when buying a cordless vacuum! ⚖️

    Cleaning performance on hard floors

    Cleaning performance is of course the most important factor!

    Many cordless vacuums do not deliver what brands claim.

    A common problem when vacuuming hard floors, for example, is that cordless devices push the dirt away instead of cleaning it in.

    Check out our recommendations and reviews -we'll sort out the bad apples for you!

    Cleaning on hard floor

    How important is the design of the cordless hoover for hard floors?

    Cordless hoovers come in a variety of designs.

    However, it's less about looks and more about functionality and flexibility.

    There are several different designs:

    • 2-in-1 cordless vacuum cleaner
    • Cordless vacuum cleaner
    • Cordless vacuum mop combos

    The 2 in 1 cordless vacuum cleaner

    The most popular version of the cordless hoover is the 2 in 1 version.

    Why are they so popular?

    You can use the hoover as a floor hoover (stick hoover) and vacuum "normally".

    But you can also convert it into a practical cordless hand hoover without much effort.

    Adding the right attachment and vacuuming furniture is easy.

    But not only that:

    You can also use the device to clean your car (read our review here: Best cordless hoovers for the car).

    And also:

    If you have pets, you'll be happy to hear:

    As cordless hand vacuums, the 2in1 devices are very well suited for removing pet hair from your upholstery. Find out more about our review of the best cordless hoovers against pet hair.

    The cordless vacuum cleaner

    These devices are excellent for vacuuming the floor without the cord.

    However, you just can't convert them into a hand vacuum.

    These devices might be less flexible, but they are certainly suitable for cleaning hard floors.

    Cordless vacuum and mop combo

    Vacuuming is clearly the main feature of these devices, but they can also mop!

    It's very tempting to be able to do two jobs in one move.

    But be careful: especially for delicate wooden floors, it is important to choose the right cordless vacuum mop combo.

    We have tested the best cordless vacuum mop combos.

    The wet and dry vacuum cleaner in the UK

    The focus of battery-powered vacuum cleaners is on mopping.

    The floor is mopped by these devices and the dirty water is then cleaned up.

    Here are the best wet and dry vacuum cleaner in the UK:

    Review: Cordless hoover accessories especially for hard floors

    Good cordless hoovers come with a range of accessories.

    Most devices come with attachments such as a crevice nozzle or a combi tool and at least one standard floor nozzle.

    Brands are always trying to set themselves apart from the competition with new - more or less - useful gadgets.

    We found out in our review:

    Which hoover brush is suitable for hard floors?

    First of all, there is the special attachment for hard floors, called the soft nozzle.

    The Dyson V15 Slim Fluffy Laser attachment for hard floors

    And this is how it works:

    Inside the nozzle is a roller that is coated with soft material.

    This roller rotates automatically, usually driven by its own small electric motor.

    When the dirt gets between the hard bottom and the soft roller, it is pressed into the roller and picked up.

    The rotational movement then pushes the dirt towards the suction pipe, where it is sucked up with the help of the suction power.

    Can I also use the standard floor nozzle for hard floors?

    If you have carpets and hard floors at home, you don't necessarily have to change the attachment every time. The standard nozzles on top cordless vacuums usually do a decent job too.

    It just works even better with the special nozzles for hard floors.

    Are cordless vacuums damaging hard floors?

    If you have a delicate floor, such as parquet, then you should definitely use a special hard floor attachment. Otherwise, you run the risk of scratching the floor.

    Floor nozzle with LED lighting

    Especially on hard floors, an illuminated floor nozzle is worth it.

    The illumination makes dirt visible that would be impossible to spot without it.

    Many cordless hoovers therefore have a useful LED light that illuminates the floor in front of the nozzle.

    The floor nozzle of the Tineco S12 with LED lighting

    Another great invention is the green laser of the "Dyson Slim Fluffy Laser".

    This laser is located on the hard floor attachment and also illuminates the floor in front of the cordless hoover.

    We were surprised:

    It makes the dirt much easier to see!

    Laser Fluffy attachment in daylight

    You can buy this attachment since the release of the Dyson V15 Detect in the Dysonshop, and it is of course included with the V15. It is also temporarily included with the Dyson V11 Outsize.

    The crevice nozzle and the combi attachment

    There are also practical attachments for the mouldings and edges.

    The crevice nozzle

    This nozzle is great for vacuuming skirting boards.

    Joint nozzle on the baseboard

    And the best thing is:

    You don't even have to bend down!

    The crevice nozzle can simply be attached to the suction tube as an extension.

    Of course, you can also connect it directly to the motor unit if necessary.

    The combi tool

    The combi tool can also be a useful alternative here.

    This is because the soft bristles are gentler on delicate wooden mouldings.


    How loud are cordless hoovers for hard floors?

    The noise level is worth considering when vacuuming hard floors.

    Hoovers, whether corded or cordless, are generally not quiet household appliances.

    But there are definitely devices that are quieter than others.

    In our tests, we found that good appliances produce around 70 dB in the most important suction mode.

    That is about the same as the volume of a washing machine.


    An interesting point to consider is the floor nozzle:

    With some models, the standard floor nozzle cleans hard floors well... ...so you don't need the soft brush described above (especially for hard floors).

    However, it may be that this standard brush is much louder on hard floors.

    A reader once described that the device he bought made noises like a helicopter!

    But don't panic: Just use the soft floor nozzle.

    How long does the battery life last?

    The battery life and runtime plays an important role when buying a cordless vacuum cleaner - which is why it also plays an important role in our review.

    We can reassure you in this respect! There are some excellent devices that have a very good operating time.

    The batteries often last up to an hour.

    That's plenty of time to clean the flat. If that's not enough for you, make sure that the battery can be changed when you buy a device.

    With some devices, a click-in-battery (lithium-ion battery) is included in the delivery. With others, you can buy a replacement battery.

    How long does a cordless hoover need to charge?

    The charging time of good cordless hoovers is usually between 3.5 and 4.5 hours.

    How is a cordless hoover charged?

    Floordock DysonCordless hoovers usually have a wall mount. Mounted on the wall, you can keep the device upright and charge it at the same time.

    If you don't want to do this, you can simply use the charger without the wall mount.

    Charging dock vs. standing on its own

    Some cordless hoovers can stand on their own and therefore do not need a wall mount.

    A clever solution that Dyson has come up with is a floordock.

    This is a cradle that you can place anywhere you like (preferably near a power socket).

    The device can also be stored upright and charged at the same time without having to drill holes in your wall.

    5 tips & tricks for hard floor cleaning

    #1 Preparing the home

    The quickest way to finish vacuuming is to tidy everything up and put the chairs up before cleaning.

    This way you don't have to put the appliance down and pick it up again all the time and can vacuum everything in one go.

    #2 Battery charge

    Before cleaning thoroughly, make sure your appliance has been on the charging station long enough to get through the cleaning in one go. Charging is a must!

    #3 Maintenance of the cordless vacuum cleaner

    Make sure the dirt container is empty, and the brush is working properly (no hair or threads tangled). This will ensure smooth operation and you will not have to empty the dust box while vacuuming.

    #4 Cleaning the filter (HEPA filter)

    Clean your filter regularly (about once a month).

    Every cordless vacuum cleaner has a filter, and the top models even have so-called long life filters or HEPA filters.

    Long live because you won’t ever have to exchange them!

    HEPA filters (particulate air filters) are filters that can remove even extremely small particles of dirt from the air that is sucked in.

    This is particularly great for allergies.

    #5 Suction tube accessory clip

    This is a really practical gadget that’s available from some brands. You can attach it to the suction tube and then attach the most important accessories to it. This way you always have the right gadget at hand.

    #6 Get a robot vacuum cleaner

    The use of a robot vacuum cleaner is a real relief for the cleaning process (check out our review of the best vacuum robots in the UK).

    Especially on hard floors, the small, independent devices are very powerful and can take a lot of work off your hands.

    For thorough weekly cleaning, the corners and in between, you can use your cordless hoover.

    How much does a cordless vacuum cleaner for hard floors cost?

    The prices for reasonable cordless hoovers vary from approx. £300 to £1500.

      Yes, it’s a wooden floor (made of real wood). It can be called parquet if the top layer is at least 2.5 mm thick.

    • What is laminate?

      Laminate flooring is a floor covering that is made up of different layers. It often looks very similar to expensive and high-quality floor coverings such as parquet flooring.

      However, it’s not made of solid wood.

    • Should I sweep or dust before vacuuming my hardwood floors?

      No, you don't have to. With the right attachment, for example the Combi-Tool, you can vacuum your furniture easily and scratch-free.

    • How often should you vacuum hardwood floors?

      Depends on how dirty your flat is. We use the cordless vacuum every day when it's busy.

      That’s also one of the main advantages of these devices:

      Hoover that aren’t corded are easy to use and still very powerful.

    • Are hoovers with or without a bag better for hardwood floors?

      Basically, cordless hoovers without a bag are cheaper in the long run and better for the environment.

      For cleaning hard floors, it’s irrelevant whether the vacuum cleaner has a bag or a dust container, i.e. is bagless.
