Eureka RapidClean Step review

The Eureka RapidClean Step was made with stairs in mind. It has all the features that make it easy for you to clean your carpeted or bare floor steps. With the power of a 6 amp motor, it boasts exceptional cleaning performance while the small handheld design makes it easy for you to carry it on the stairs and clean all the steps immaculately.

If you are looking for a good vacuum cleaner for your stairs, here is why you should consider the Eureka RapidClean Step.

Lightweight Handheld Design

It is definitely a pain to carry a huge vacuum like an upright or a canister on your steps when cleaning them. Although most vacuums do come with a hose for cleaning steps and hard-to-reach areas, but if you have used them, you would know what problems arise when you are using the hose.

For one, most hoses are not long enough to be used without any inconvenience. And second, when you are using the hose, the upright vacuum tends to tip over. That is why the Eureka RapidClean Step is recommended for cleaning stairs as it comes in a small, lightweight handheld design, which you can simply carry in your hands and clean your steps conveniently.

Bare Floor Brush

The Eureka RapidClean is made for stairs, whether carpeted or bare floor. It comes with a bare floor brush that you can simply flip down for cleaning non-carpeted stairs and flip up when vacuuming on carpets.

Brush roll on/off button

Since revolving brushes can scratch wood floors, having the option to switch off the brush roll when moving to hardwood floors is an extremely valuable one. It allows you to switch on or off the brush roll with the flick of a button. So, you can easily switch on the brush roll for deep carpet cleaning and switch it off to safely clean your wood steps and hard surfaces. Revolving brushes also tend to scatter debris on your hardwood floors rather than getting it under the vacuum head to be picked up. Hence, you can switch off the brush roll for better cleaning performance on non-carpeted stairs.

6 Inches Wide Cleaning Path

The 6” wide cleaning path makes it ideal for cleaning steps. You can clean one step with just one swipe of the vacuum.

Corded Handheld Vacuum

The Eureka RapidClean comes with a 25 ft. cord and is mains powered instead of battery operated like many other handheld vacuums. This allows you to clean as much as you want and for as long as you want without the constraints of a battery. And with a 25 ft. cord and a 3 ft. hose, you can reach up to 28 ft. without having to plug it again; this means you can go all the way up your stairs and even vacuum upstairs.

Verdict

The Eureka RapidClean is a great mini vacuum to have around your house, car or boat for doing small cleaning jobs if you don’t want to drag your big vacuum around. And if you are talking about cleaning carpeted or bare floor stairs, this vacuum truly shines.
