Do you have a weekly – or indeed, more frequent – cleaning regime in your home? I don’t know about you, but I often find cleaning the house thoroughly gives me a great sense of accomplishment, and provides a wonderful boost to my sense of wellbeing when I step back to see the ‘chaos’ gone and calm order restored to my living quarters.

Since moving into my new flat, which has wooden laminate flooring in the open-plan living area (and which is should rally stop calling ‘new’ since I’ve been here six months now!), I’ve found myself getting up off the sofa to vacuum almost daily, the moment the sun begins to stream through my west-facing window in the late afternoon and illuminates the dust that has settled and, more often than not, all my long blonde hairs shed all over the place ( – did you know the average person loses between 50-100 strands per day?!). So when Shark got in touch asking if I’d like to test out their new duoclean cordless vacuum, which promises to make everyday cleaning easier, faster and more convenient than ever before, I jumped at the chance.

You may remember my recent post looking at indoor air quality and the best ways to improve the atmosphere in your home, and vacuuming frequently can play a huge role in safeguarding yourself against those tiny dust microbes that are constantly floating in the air, which are known triggers for asthma and inhalant-related allergies such as hay fever. The new Shark duoclean technology offers a very attractive upgrade on the single brush roll vacuums I’ve had in the past, and also come with an array of add-on accessories so you can easily clean anywhere in your home, even those fiddly, hard-to-reach places, where dust microbes like to accumulate.
