The Hoover Breeze EVO ‘Pets’, is a tidy bagless upright hoover (model TH31BO02) it costs around £88 to £100 (eighty eight to one hundred pounds) and is among the best cheap upright hoovers, like many vacuum cleaners it has a 3 litre capacity bagless cylinder waste bin making it very low maintenance and a 4.5 metre stretch nozzle cleaner making it easy to stay neat whilst cleaning.
This model (TH31BO02) is advertised to perform well for picking up pet hair, one of the main highlights of this hoover is it has a height adjustable brush, this allows you to set it higher off the floor just for a quick surface dusting or be set lower to the floor for a more vigorous deep clean, some other cheap upright hoovers do not have this feature standard… so if this is a feature that you need then this hoover would be ideal for you.
Another added bonus which most other cheap upright hoovers lack is the length of the flex nozzle attachment, this vacuum cleaner has a long 4.5 metre stretch which should be able to clean a 13 step staircase (standard staircase size in the uk) which means you can leave the hoover at the top or bottom of the stairs and grab the nozzle and make easy cleaning of the stairs without lifting or balancing the upright hoover on the stairs.
What floors can this hoover tackle? This cheap upright hoover can do any floor you throw at it, hard flooring and carpet with ease, it also comes with a purpose produced pet hair brush for spot vacuuming upholstery where your pets may sit. All in all, a good value upright hoover for under £100 (100 pounds).
