A round-up of some of the latest local and international floor care category news.


A report by Technavio predicts that the global market for household vacuums will grow by 5% (CAGR) every year to 2021.

The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the maximum market share in 2016 and this is predicted to continue for several years.

Factors attributed to this predicted rise include awareness around the use of harmful and harsh chemicals in floor cleaning, the rise in urbanisation and increased interest in robotic vacuums.


Miele Blizzard CX1

Due here in March 2018, Miele’s new bagless model sounds like a big sucker, in a good way of course. Powerful suction is offered by a 1,100 Watt motor powering Miele’s own Vortex technology that offers air flow of over 100km/h. A HEPA AirClean lifetime filter helps to ensure air hygiene along with a dust separation system where coarse soiling and fine dust are emptied separately with a simple button and pull system. Upkeep is also improved with the GoreCleanStream fine dust filter that automatically cleans itself. The Blizzard CX1 comes with a full range of integrated accessories.


 Samsung VR7000 Robot Vacuum

Now available here, Samsung’s smart little robovac features Mapping Plus and FullView Sensor 2.0, to guide its way around small obstacles and remembers the contours of every room in a home to ensure it gets all the hard to reach, awkward spots. This low profile model has been designed to get into more spaces and its Edge Clean Master features enables it to come within 15mm of the wall. The unit is completely controllable by smartphone, offers up to 20 Watts of suction and an intelligent power control system automatically adjusts this for surface type. It also offers self-cleaning brush systems that reduce the amount of dust and hair trapped in the brushes.
