Spring is almost here and with it often comes the need for a new vacuum cleaner. But incentive recipients will want to find vacuums that fit their particular cleaning needs.

For instance, if you're the type who'd prefer not to clean, get an iRobot Roomba 960, available through Harco Incentives. Its mapping technology lets it navigate around the house, and it won't double back because it knows where it's been and where it needs to go. This device will keep chugging along for 75 minutes before recharging and then returning to clean. And its size means it can dig under furniture as well, and its smart sensors keep it from tipping over stairs.

As a vacuum itself, it's excellent. It has a powerful suction, meaning it can suck up all sorts of deep-in-there debris, and its brushes can even extract pet hair. Plus, it automatically adjusts for rugs. It also has edge sweepers so it can get those hard-to-clean areas in corners and along edges. 

It also comes with a compatible app, meaning users can keep track of what it's been up to and get notifications whenever it has completed a job. If users need to schedule a clean-up or program a custom job, that's possible as well.

If you incentive recipient is the sort of person who prefers to get her hands dirty, or who finds cleaning therapeautic -- until the cord gets tangled -- then check out the Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless vacuum, also from Harco.

The Dyson V8 works for 40 powerful minutes before it needs to be charged. It transforms into a handheld for quick at-the-ready cleaning, and emptying it is a breeze. It has a "hygienic dirt ejector," which shoots out dust into an awaiting bin with a single, sweeping motion. 

For those who simply hate wrestling with bags, there's Panasonic's Upright Jetforce Bagless vacuum, also from Harco. It keeps the filter clean via its JetForce technology, which pushes hair and dirt to the bottom of the canister. At less than 15 pounds, it's light and easy to maneuver. And it has a HEPA filter, meaning it'll keep those nasty dust particles from recirculating in a home.

If you hate bags and need something heavy duty, check out the Eureka Garage Bagless Vac Kit, available through Capitol Sales. With 550 air watt power, this magnificent machine can clean 1,000 square feet easily.
