When it comes to vacuum cleaners, Electrolux is definitely one of the world’s leading specialists, and the Electrolux EL6986A is one of their masterpieces.
Its name, “UltraSilencer”, probably says it all – this vacuum cleaner is incredibly quiet. Its motor is nearly silent, so you do not need to worry about disturbing your loved ones, no matter when you decide to clean your home. The 65 dB noise is somewhat close to that made by a refilling toilet.
Any user will be glad to know that this compact device weighs no more than 15 lbs and that its handle is extremely ergonomic. It is highly maneuverable and it takes little space to store. A long, 6-foot hose makes it easy to reach any spot in your home.
The HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filtering technology means that no allergens (dust, pet hairs etc.) will be released in the air. This is great for people suffering from respiratory allergies or asthma.
The 990 watt motor might not be impressive, and the HEPA filters further reduce the suction power, making this device a not very good choice for thick carpets. However, if you’re just looking for a vacuum for hardwood floors, then this cleaner is a great solution. Its power is more than enough to remove any single particle or fiber from any kind of hard surface.
It reaches distant and hardly accessible areas and it does all these without noise. The suction level is easily adjustable for different types of surfaces, not to mention its wide, 10-inch nozzle, allowing you to remove lots of dust and dirt at one time.
