Usually, I would opt for a cordless stick vacuum because, with modern living, convenience is key, and let's be honest, there's nothing convenient about being connected to the only free plug socket in the house. You can’t see allergens when you’re emptying — but trust Henry Allergy’s innovative self-seal tab to keep everything in. With three very hairy dogs in the house and being surrounded by dusty, pollen-ripe farmland, she is often overcome with sneezing, particularly in summer, poor thing. Our ease of use tests are conducted by an independent panel of vacuum cleaner experts and assess how easy it is use the vacuum cleaner in various real life situations, how easy it is to conduct regular maintenance on the vacuum cleaner, such as changing bags and filters, and finally how versatile each vacuum cleaner is for conducting a variety of tasks such as cleaning at various heights and cleaning upholstery. This is on top of Henry’s regular Tritex Filter (the squishy white ‘hat’ that you place on top of the vacuum bag before closing the lid) and the Hepaflow vacuum bags.

The Henry Allergy HVA160 adds boosted HEPA filtration to the mix, preventing any harmful particles from escaping into the wild.I didn’t find the latter particularly useful; I found it easier to stick with the regular floor head.

The Crevice Tool gets into those nooks and crannies, whilst the Dusting Tool is ideal for shelves, ornaments and picture frames.Otherwise, this is a regular Henry vacuum cleaner: a solid, reliable and powerful cleaner that does well across all floor types. With spring cleaning on my mind, I relished the thought of cleaning mattresses and materials with this vacuum as well as everyday cleaning jobs in our rather hectic household of two teenagers! This means that you don’t need to empty every time you use it (which is what I do with my existing bagless upright). According to Numatic, this three-pronged filter approach means the Henry Allergy traps particles up to 800 times smaller than the width of human hair.

Where this appliance does fall short is the stairs; unlike a handheld vacuum that can tackle the dirt on the stairs with ease, Henry's large base makes it very challenging to clean the stairs. Plus as a house-proud Interiors and Gardens journalist, she's spent my career tracking the trends, interviewing the experts and reviewing the best products for inside and outside living spaces, while also renovating my house from a dated bungalow to a contemporary family home.This requires a bit more work to reel the power cable back in, but the upside is that there’s one less feature that could go wrong. Designed, built, tested and packed in the UK, with Henry Allergy you know you’re getting the real deal. This could be down to the lack of motorised brushhead, which helps the floorhead move more easily over floors.

I had to go over the same area more times on the carpet than the laminate flooring, as you might expect, but nothing was left behind and nor did the floorhead push debris around rather than suck it up. Being fairly tall (5’10”), I opted for the connection that gave me an extra 50mm height at hand level. While the assembly process doesn’t really warrant explaining, it was worth a look to discover that there are two ways to connect the main nozzle pipes according to your height. Best vacuum cleaners sail through every task, but our expert tests found plenty that come unstuck on even the simplest cleaning jobs.Regardless of that, Henry is an extremely reliable feel-good friend that tackles cleaning jobs head on. That’s about the same power as the Stihl SE 33 wet and dry cleaner, and a lot more powerful than the Shark CZ500UKT. So, we set her the challenge of testing the Henry Allergy vacuum cleaner to see if it could change her mind.
