Samsung FlexSlim Hand Stick Samsung’s FlexSlim vacuum allows enhanced dust collection with its uniquely designed cyclonic airflow. Strong centrifugal force is generated which separates dust from the air and then the dust particles and debris are then sieved until the time comes to empty it. Its clever design means the FlexSlim can stand alone, allowing the user to leave it and perform other tasks, whilst its slim nature means it’s ideal for saving space. The main chamber of the FlexSlim can also be unclipped to turn it into a convenient handheld hoover, perfect for vacuuming the car and for smaller spillages.


Samsung NaviBot robotic vacuum cleaner The Samsung NaviBot Vacuum robotic vacuum cleaner uses a unique advanced navigation system to provide efficient, hands-free automated floor cleaning at the touch of a button. Seven cleaning settings (auto, max, edge, spot, manual, delay start and daily schedule) provide a variety of options to suit users’ needs and the floor cloth accessory safely cleans all hard floor surfaces with ease. High-grade HEPA filtration also means that exhaust air is virtually free from dust and allergens, making it ideal for families with allergy sufferers. Pet owners can enjoy the pet hair care system with the brush protection comb, ideal for picking up pet hair from rugs, carpets and hardwood floors.
